Caveat: sat at the bar - so I had fast and exceptional service.
Atmosphere is American casual - wood and copper decor in an old building near Charlottesville's historic outdoor mall (about a block away)
The bartender was friendly and very helpful. He refused to charge me for half a pint of a beer I couldn't stand ("collaboration ale" or something). Despite that single negative this was overall a great place! Everything from geo-bachelors eating alone (me) to groups of women and multi-gen families were dining that night. Seemed to be plenty of wait staff. The kitchen aroma and fireplace made the place smell great. There was baseball on TV at the bar and plenty of parking.
Now the important part - the beer was, aside from the aforementioned, great!!! Had a pint of JP Ale and then tried the sampler (see below). Also had a plate of the Blue Nachos (meatatarian version) and they were killer! Really some of the best nachos I've had.
In short, I think you'll enjoy your food and beer of you chose this great place.

Looking to taste the variety available form this local brewery and pub, we were very pleased with service and selection. Our first stop in a weekend Brew Ridge Trail tasting tour, I could only hope the other 4 breweries hold up so well. The sample portions were generous enough to get a feel for the beer. Some were impressive, but most seemed a bit flat. Wait staff was most attentive. We never seemed to have to look around for service, and our needs were often anticipated. (It must help as it was obvious that we were making written ratings.) For a brewery, the food was also impressive. Inexpensive but very tasty and well presented. I would certainly go back.
