Went with the wife and kids and had a great time. I believe the restaurant has only been open a month and a half, and it definitely feels like a work-in-progress (there are still many elements of its previous incarnation as Walter Payton's Roundhouse evident), but the space is very open with lots of nice, dark wood--a beautiful space with loads of potential.

The food was exceptional, especially the Roundhouse Burger (you can see their menu and descriptions at their website), and we were told an expanded menu will be coming in a few weeks. Along with the food, the service was also excellent. Our server was more than willing to discuss both the food and beer menus, and occasionally, other servers would chime in with recommendations or comments.

My only disappointment was that beyond the regular Two Brothers portfolio, only two extra beers--an imperial pilsner and a porter--were on tap (I didn't try either). I had a Hop Juice on tap, and it was fantastic. Another disappointment (which you may or may not care about) was that the only beer-to-go was in growlers, no bombers or six-packs, and they didn't have any other gear for sale (no pint glasses or t-shirts, et cetera).

You should absolutely go here if you're in the neighborhood (we were at the nearby outlet mall), but I wouldn't make a special pilgrimage just yet. The space needs time to develop its own unique personality and settle into its true potential. I assume much of this review will be nullified in a few months time, but this was my experience.

Had to pay $24 for samples, that being said, beer pretty good not top tier. The venue was awesome. Old train station built in 1850s with unique qualities that I couldn't fully take in due to two teens waking up coming in to nag wife (DD) and I when you guys done? Bartender knowledgeable and friendly. Atmosphere extremely airy. Kids gave me a bite of phenomenal bbq wings.
