4.1/5  rDev +19.9%

I have been to MBC 4 different times in the last year and every time I go there I am greeted almost right away and the staff is very helpful. The place is a very relaxing and friendly place to go and enjoy a brew and some food.
At the table the server was always helpful in answering any questions I had about the food and drinks there. The food each time I was there was always cooked and prepared well. I would highly recommend the walleye which is pecan encrusted and fried and served with beurre blanc sauce and dried cherries. The Grouper served in a pistachio crust is also excellent whenever it is available.
Overall, this is currently one of my favorite places to go to. The only thing I wish they would do a better job at is making their beer taste better.

Atmosphere: not much to it. chalk drawings along the edges, and not really a motif to the decorations. has just an average restaurant feel to it.

Quality: their beer was not so impressive. seems like another company riding the craft beer wave

Selection: about 6 beers on tap and nothing worth mention. seem to have a variety of hard liqours and wines to select from though

Service: it wasn't busy at all when i was there but we had no problems with the service

Food: good standard pub fair. good fries.

Overall: not a place that a beer advocate needs to go. if they want to earn it from me they need to actually put some focus on their beer
