We chose the Wild Onion as it was kind of half way between the two groups I was going out with. It was still a 40 minute drive….
As we pulled into the parking lot, I was impressed by the building and really liked the large mural on the outside. Inside, even more impressed. There is lots of large wood beams, a huge stone fireplace, cozy bar area to your left and lots of dining straight on and to your right.
Service was friendly and knew the beer menu, but they really try and quickly turn the tables over. My advice is to order an appetizer or two and don’t place your food orders until after you are done with the appetizers. I realize they are busy and may have folks waiting, but our check arrived at almost at the same time as entrees. Our waitress did say not to rush, but I still felt rushed.
Between our group, we had full pints of 7 of their offerings. The consensus was good not great beers. The best of the bunch was their hefe.
The appetizers were pretty good, the food was adequate. We liked the fried pickles and calamari. Burgers seemed to be premade patties. The fish and chips were good and the tartar sauce was very good. Nice salads as well. The prime rib, wraps and fish special didn’t not receive as high of marks.
I would be willing to go back for another visit. Maybe pick a week night to see if it is a little less rushed.
