Met up with two friends here on a weekend night and it was pretty busy. All the tables were full, but I didn't have to wait since my friends were already seated. The place is small and modern-looking but not in an annoying way. The atmosphere reminded me of a lot of places in New York, where I used to live. You will not be wowed by this place by any means, but I found it cozy, unimposing in a good way, and very intimate despite the crowd.
The service was pretty good - again it was busy, so even though the place was amply staffed it could still take a minute or two to get a replacement beer.
And let's talk about the beer. I had a RyePA which was quite good, I thought. I'm not normally a Rye drinker - Founders Red's Rye is the only one I drink with any regularity - but this one was nicely hopped and while it wasn't great it was certainly tasty. Then I ordered a brown (with the unfortunate name of Brownson Pinchot - ugg) and only got a taste of that (average) because one of my friends found her peat smoked porter to, well, peat-ee for her tastes. It wasn't for mine though as I found it very interesting with a strong, strong smoke taste to it... though not a lot else. Wouldn't have wanted to have another one but you can't find beers like this everywhere.
The selection was limited (four beers on tap) but then the place had just opened. They also appeared to have a decent wine selection and homebrewed rootbeer. The menu consists mostly of woodfired pizzas. I had half of one and it was of pretty high quality. I feel as though this is the sort of place you'd go if your pizza tastes tend more toward the gourmet since I think they do this well.
Overall a nice place that is reasonably priced. It is small but I did not find that to be a drawback - but maybe that's only because of some previous good associations I have with that type of place. I'd recommend it.

This place is charming in that it is small ,well kept, and laid back. I have been here twice and both times the place was packed. The music is a little loud for my liking at times but the welcoming staff makes up for it. The staff does not seem to know a ton about the beers on tap but have a basic understanding of the styles that they have on tap. The pizzas at this place are killer but are a bit pricey. The beer is B- to A- in quality. None of their beers blew me away but nothing was off putting about their beer.

Small place not much seating. Beers are good to above average, not out of this world. Stopped in with a friend and had two pints and a very full pour in a snifter for $10. Can't beat that plus their wood fired pizzas are some of the best around. Super great place to have within walking distance of my home.
