We stopped here at a fruitless search for a parking space at the beach on the fourth of July weekend. The entrance was bright and inviting with some outside tables. Unfortunately, there was nothing to see but the busy highway. In any event it was hot that day and we ate inside. The beer offerings were written on an easily seen chalkboard by an upscale looking bar. Our waitress quickly got our ales, but waiting for the food was a little slow. The offerings included a hoppy pale ale, American IPA, a seasonal blonde ale and an Irish ale. Our appetizer was a spinach artichoke dip with crawfish. The dip had a generous amount of crawfish and was tasty enough to recommend. A couple of us got the "lucky dog" hotdog which was similar to a Chicago style dog. I ordered a "Irish dip" sandwich that was heaped with beef and cheese. The menu also included a red snapper and steaks. Typical for a tourish area, the food and beer were pricy. The hoppy American Pale ale met the standard, but not much more. I cannot vouch for all the ales, but this place is worth trying for the food alone.

This is a nice clean place with above average food. It is generally family friendly. The place is reall two separate facilities, which is somewhat preposterous, so choose wisely. The brewpub with a larger menu has the standard taps. The Barrel Room has the more elite beers including barrel aged beers and one-offs. If you choose to dine in the brewpub, you are out of luck in terms of getting the higher end beers. Same building, different rules.
