The atmosphere is welcoming. As you walk in you are greeted by smiling hostess waiting to show you to your table. The place is large, loud, and full with people having a good time. There is a decent size bar area with a few tables and two other rooms with table and booth seating.

Edit: Gone are the friendly faces, and large crowd.

The quality of their beer is great. Some were really good, and some are average. They also have some quality guest beers.

Their service is prompt and friendly.

Edit: Very rude bartender's. I was there with a friend who spends quite a bit of money there, and I was amazed at how rude they were to him. He was getting a growler fill, and asked them not to rinse out his growler. The bartender stuck his nose in the growler, then out of spite rinsed it out anyway.

The selection is o.k. with about 25 beers on tap 8 being their own. The rest being a nice selection of ales, lagers, porters, Belgians, and lambics.

The food is the highlight of this place my wife had a burger that was really good. I had the smoked chicken wings; they were out of this world. They serve their smoked wings whole with the sauce on the side. I chose two of their sauces which were really good but the wings were good on their own. They make their own chips which were really good too.

Edit: Food is not as good as it used to be.

One dozen whole chicken wings, a half pond burger, a pint of beer, a couple samples, a root-beer, and tip were under $40. As good as the food was Id say that's a good deal.

Edit: The food quality, and service of this establishment have slowly diminished over the last year. The beer is still excellent though.

More of a resturan then the brewery itself, but still has a great tap list and everything on the menu is delicious. Wish they'd build one closer to where I live.

Great food, great beer & great ambience. This is a good place to go for the game, go for lunch, dinner or just because. Large selection of Fat Heads brews & they fill growlers.
