Atmosphere has some pros and cons. It's a nice interior, big and spacey; you can see right into the kitchen; and it has a nice look overall. However, it's extremely noisy.

Really good beer on tap, from across the US as well as Belgium and Germany - all craft. Very, very good beer.

Service was only OK; things ran pretty slow, despite having a very full kitchen staff.

Selection, while very good, was very limited. About a dozen beers on tap, and twice as many bottles. Again, everything was good, but just not a lot of options.

Same goes for the food. The menu is really, really small, but the food is high quality. If you want a great burger, it's a good option.

Finally, prices ran a little high. I attribute this to the location in downtown Mystic. $5 for a side of fries; burgers over $10; beers often $10 or more (on draft).

Note: no kids menu, no booster seats, no high chairs. Add to that the noisy interior and the higher prices, and you should take the family elsewhere.

This would be a good spot to stop by with friends or co-workers, or even possibly a date night.

Edit: if you can find room at the bar, service is much better. They have a great happy hour (4-6 pm) offering: $4 draft, $5 burger. They now have outside seating, as well.

I stopped in here with the family while on vacation in the area. The wife couldn't decide where to eat so I made the executive decision. Cool industrial space with a great deck at the main entrance. Taps about 12 deep all craft, some locals, really well thought out selections too. They have a large selection of whiskey but not being my thing I'm not sure the quality. The menu is kind of limited and I got flack for that, although no one complained about the quality of their food in fact they really enjoyed it. Burgers, sandwiches, salads, a couple of entrees and a smattering of appetizers, all nicely prepared and locally sourced. Service was prompt and available. My wallet did a bit of weeping on the way out the door, but I would go back in a heartbeat if in the area.
