Stop number two on our Bloomsburg adventure. My first time to Turkey Hill.
Awesome looking building from the outside, parking lot was packed. I hear the upstairs is an awesome restaurant but for this visit we stuck with the pub. Brewing area is right inside the door, appears to be just an industrial home brew kit. We got seated at the largest table in the place and sat down to take in our surroundings. Lots of old wood and stones all over the place, two person band playing in the corner, a few TV's behind the bar. My seat was a little uncomfortable as it was essentially a board with no cushion. Quality was pretty good, lots of cool things hanging on the wall, food was top notch, and my beers all came in the correct glasses.
Service was a little hit or miss. Our server was working most of the room so it took awhile to get our drink order in, and ever longer for it to arrive. Once we placed our food order the service got a lot quicker thanks to the other servers picking up the slack. I got the Black and Blue burger and it was cooked perfectly and tasted great. I also got to try some of the buffalo dip and NY pretzels and both were awesome.
Selection was pretty good as well. They had 10-11 beers on, I tried the Helles and the Oatmeal stout and both were pretty good, but nothing earth shattering. I also tried a bit of the Grapefruit IPA and like the others it was good but not great. Overall this place is definitely worth the stop, for the food alone, but don't expect it to blow you out of the water.

Not far from I-80 exit, nice location, ample parking. Just behind the Inn at Turkey Hill, a high star restaurant, don't ge the two confused or your wallet will cry.
Atmosphere has always been good at this place. Great looking building, inside and out, rustic looking. Barrels, both empty and full, lying around everywhere. Two floors, booths, small & large table settings, small outdoor patio, hostess on duty to get you seated. Never had to wait for a table. Live music is a regular feature.
Overall quality is very good. They brew on site, and most beers are very sessionable. The brewer is inventive, and as mentioned above, there are barrels laying around, mostly at the main entrance, with contents labelled along with release dates.
Service, as most places can occasionally be spotty, but on the whole, very good. Last waitress we had was as knowledgeable about the beer as she was with the food. We had a problem with our table once, and it was immediately taken care of.
Beer selection is also very good. Usually a dozen or so to choose from, nitro tap, beer engine and a few specialty options. Recently I was able to try a guest beer fom a recipe by a home brewer. There is a 6 flight option for the regular beers.
Food is really good, a full menu, prices are reasonable considering the quality, rarely tops $20.00 for an entree, sandwiches, salads, etc. The pork shank specialty is probably worth a 4.75 alone. Occasionally the chefs from the restaurant next door will whip up some soups. 6 or so desserts, including an ice cream float using their Lightstreet Porter. Beer pricing is also quite reasonable, most around $5.00.
Only negative is about the music. Although mostly good quality, (and I can't beleive an old Motorhead fan is about to say this) it can get pretty loud upstairs, as the high ceilings and wood does not help muffle the sound. Even accoustic bands seem to use mics & speakers. The upstairs area isn't big enough for you to find a quiet corner.
If it wasn't a little over an hour away, I'd probably come here more often.

Nice looking place. Two floors. Outside seating. Beer was pretty good. Service seemed young and slightly distant. Didn't try the food but would have if I was hungry or looking for a place to eat. Honestly, it's a nice looking place, but I don't know if I'd ever return. Just didn't put any air in my balloon.
