Stopped by here after work with my wife and a friend to see the replacement to the Linwood Grille. Went into the restaurant side, as there was a cover to see a band on the bar side. The open air kitchen has been plastered over, and the decor has been upgraded. There were lots of candle shaped light fixtures around, and some stained glass on the wall. Not as "churchy" as I expected though. We just wanted some drinks and apps, so we sat at the bar. Our bar tender was nice, he was friendly and chatted a bit. Served us pretty quickly, though I think he spaced out a few times due to it being pretty slow on a Thursday night. Sadly, the beer selection definitely has changed, that's for sure. On tap, they only had Guinness, Sam, Sam Winter, Harpoon Dark, Magic Hat #9, Ipswich IPA, and BBC Steel Rail. All were served in a *frozen* pilsner glass. As for bottles, some above average choices were Ayinger, Erdinger (proper glassware points), DFH, Stone bomber, Boulder, and Brooklyn. Didn't blow me away. Though I have to admit, my friend had three drinks off the 7 Deadly Sins cocktail menu, and they all tasted pretty nice. The food, while a bit pricey, was good. The duck and the chicken apps hit the spot. I'd consider Church less of a beer bar, and more of a place to get a slightly expensive meal and have one or two decent beers.
