Its located in a great spot except for the parking which sucks. Same old Gordon B beers, but not done as well. I been here since it opened about 6 times, and always liked some of the food, but the beer is just average to poor. Great views on the patio upstairs, and if the weather is pleasant its great, but go inside if its 85F plus or under 60F. Its part of the chain of 7b and rag time is in. its not a bad stop the strange stout is decent and we go when there is a band of some sorts. Just not much to do in this area if you don't play golf and don't have a boat. Bars are it. As music lovers we go to anyplace if the music is good. I always rate these places low on selection because they only have BMC bottles and of course there 3 to 6 beers on tap, if there NOT out. Service is all over the place also. its a tourist town so prices reflect that.

First visit was 1999, last was Nov 2008

last Visit September 2009, sat a t bar beer was decent for the small selection the October fest was decent, service was well good for sitting at the bar.

Stumbled on this brew pub on my way thru A1A so I decided to stop. Clean place with a bar area, indoor and outdoor dining areas. Wait staff was ok, no complaints there. Food selection was ok, nothing special. They have six of their own beers on tap and also a selection of regular beers for those less adventurous. Five of the beers they brew are available year round and then one seasonal. Not a lot of info on the seasonals. Overall not a bad place to stop if your in the area, but don't go out of your way.

Stopped in on a day trip and had lunch and their brown ale. Decent mahi sandwich with a good selection of food. The food was a little pricey for what it was but not terrible. Had their own brews which all looked OK. The brown ale was different for the style but not bad. Right on the water, so the upstairs outside seating was nice. Stop in if you are there.

We had lunch here not once but twice because we were so impressed.

The atmosphere was outstanding. We were seated outdoors on the corner overlooking the Spanish Fort and the Bridge of Lions. The server was there immediately with drink orders. I ordered a flight of their beers which came with the appetizers.

Perhaps I am more jaded now but the majority of their beers struck me as pretty average but solid. It was their specialty beers which impressed me. Abbaddon was a Strong Belgian Ale which went down very smooth. It definitely stood out.

Most impressive was the knowledge of the servers about the beers. When the flight came out she set them down on a guide and explained the properties of each beer very knowledgeably. It certainly paid off since I could see that they serve up a great deal of the flights.

The food was also impressive. It was the first time that my wife (not a beer fan) actually suggested that we go back the next day. We both saw numerous dishes we wanted to return for.

All in all a great experience. We dropped exactly what we would have dropped on a great meal here in our hometown.
