Came to the pub after going to the tour at the brewery . The tour was nothing special in terms of the information but it is nice that they will allow you to try as many beers as you would like. With that being said it was nice to be able to go to the pub and get some lunch after drinking for a while. I had the cheeseburger. It was really good. I had a Strawator while there. It was very good and ended up filling the growler that I bought at the brewery with Strawator. The pub has a rather nice atmosphere and the service was good. I highly recommend stopping by if your in the area.

Went here right after we got done drinking some free beer and taking the pretty boring and somewhat uninformative tour over at the brewery just down the road as part of a bachelor party trip my buddy put together for me. The service here was friendly and fast. We happened to go here during craft beer week so we got to try their Abbey Ale on tap and get a free pint, which was nice. The Food here is fantastic. I tried a seafood po boy with Turbodog romelaude (sp?) sauce and it was absolutely delicious. If you go to Abita, I recommend you make this your lunch stop after the tour. Worth every penny.

After doing the Abita Brewery tour (which was pretty lame. After a 30 DVD and a couple of beers we were guided by a girl who knew less about beer what she was talking about and more on how to do public speaking. I wanted to learn more about the Merlin and was guided to the guy ripping tickets at the front door, who was rad, but I would have liked to talked to a brewer or someone that actually knew what was going on. rant over...) We stoppped at the Brew Pub for a bite naturally. BBQ ribs braised with Turbo Dog hit the spot!

Went here with some colleagues while visiting Stennis Space Center.
The immediate area around the restaurant is cute, with a huge gazebo which was lit up at night. There was also a bike trail running past. Inside is nice but non-descript. Fairly typical pub.
Selection is solid. Almost all Abita, but hey, that's what people come here for. Several on tap that I haven't seen in the Atlanta area, including a few seasonals.
My food was good. I had the blackened chicken. Nice amount of spice.
Our waitress was fantastic. We had a large group (12) and she didn't bat an eye about multiple people ordering beer samplers. She offered up food and beer recs. She even accurately split our checks for us.

On my tenth trip to Louisiana, I finally bit the bullet and made the one hour drive to/from Baton Rouge to cross Abita off my list of brewpubs/breweries visited.
This was my 207th brewery/brewpub visit and some could say it may not qualify as the brew pub is not owned by Abita and they do not brew anything on site. They do have an original brewing setup in the back corner for decor. I'm no appraisal expert, but it seems like $75k worth of SS brewing equipment could be better served in an actual brewery.
My visit was 5:00 on a Tuesday evening in mid March. A pleasant 78 degrees outside and I elected to sit inside at the bar to avoid a jovial group of smoking locals on the front patio.
Abbey in 22 oz bomber
Select beer was a black IPA
Harvest strawberry beer in bottles (LA strawberries)
Guest beer was voodoo bengal pale ale from tin roof brewing
I went with a custom premium sampler of the pale, IPA, Andygator, SOS, and one other that I can't recall. I told the bartender I was driving and she served me a smaller pour of the black IPA and the guest pale ale.
Like all the beers I've had from LA, I really can't say anything was more than average. The pale and IPA are both hard to drink...a malty mess with no clean hop aroma/flavor. The guest beer from Voodoo was a struggle to finish - carbonated malt syrup with no "pale" characteristic at all.
Had a bowl of the gumbo which was good. The atmosphere was neat and the town of Abita is more happening that I imagined. The brewpub is on a bike trail and there is a wonderful town square next to the brewpub with an Abita beer garden for special events.
The road to/from the interstate there is a bbq joint on the west side of the road (about halfway) that has the best boudin sausage I've ever had in my life. May have been the best part of the visit.
