Many of the reviews cover my complaint: not enough beer.
An example of the shortage of beer is the Draft list on the chalk board - my husband asked about one and was told it was in a bottle. He noted that it was on the board but the waitress pointed out that only the top two beers are draft and the other 5 were labelled as bottles.
We are used to more than 2 rotational beers so we didn't even notice.
I had the Franconia Hefeweizen and enjoyed it as usual but I'd really wanted something appropriate to the cool weather. It was $5.50.
My husband had the Duvel Single for $8.
I kept telling my husband we could come another time and try it when there wasn't such a crowd but then I looked at the beer list and couldn't find a reason to go again. I went through the argument three different ways and still arrived at the same conclusion.
Many more better places to spend my money.
I reviewed the atmosphere low because it was smoky, noisy and didn't have enough seating. I reviewed the quality as poor because I went here to try some good beers and they had nothing I wanted to try.

4.1/5 rDev -0.5%
Visited with friends on a hot Saturday afternoon. There was a large outside seating area, the temperature drove us inside. Very Belgium brewpub like atmosphere with dark woods, large open seating area with a nice bar area.
There were about 15 selections of beer on tap and around a 30 to 40 bottle variety. Mostly Belgiums and a few local brews and the typical big box beers.
Waitress was very attentive, friendly and had great knowledge of the beer selection and menu.
Very nice selection of food very good quality, enjoyed the Bilton Burger and the Guinness Beef Stew. Very reasonably priced and overall a very enjoyable pub.
