I was able to stop by during my latest visit to Columbia.
This is a pretty large and bustling place. We waited about 20 minutes to get a table at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, so I would say they have lots of fans. We had some beers which made the short wait seem shorter.
They have a really nice terrace that seems to be a big draw. There is a large dining room and nice bar room. The bar is a square in the middle of the room with service stations on each end. There are TV’s , so you can keep up with the games.
Service at the bar and table side was very friendly and prompt. Both servers were able to provide some beer insight.
Food was tasty and I thought pretty reasonable priced. They have some specials which are worth checking out. They offer really good homemade “blue” coleslaw. Get it!
Unfortunately the beer was not a huge hit with our party. We started with the Ed’s IPA. It was either old or the lines needed tending. The hops were pretty much MIA and there was a vegetable thing going on that was way out of place. The stout was better and we thought the best beer of the evening was the pepper ale which had a nice pepper aroma but was not overly hot.
I will be back again and will try some more beers.

My wife and I made a return visit to the brew pub in late May. We were seated immediately in a nice, shady spot in their outdoor patio area. The waitress quickly came and took our drink orders and gave us plenty of time to peruse the menu before ordering.
Food and beer were both great and tasty. My wife got a huge salad (a half-portion would have been better since we couldn't take left overs with us) and I opted for their chicken wings and a Cajun sausage and pasta special, again with very generous portions.
The beer selection was large and extensive as far as styles go. I tried their green chili beer and brown ale, both refreshing and quite tasty.
Excellent atmosphere, service, and food and beverage offerings. Highly recommended.
