Located in a highly industrial area of town with a great view of a dirty old huge power plant. You are within a few blocks of the nuclear plant as well. Exterior of the building matches the surrounding area. Run down industry. The interior is nicely finished with new knotty pine on all the walls. Fairly bright and inviting. The food menu looks typical bar food. Huge downside was the price of two 5-ounce pours I tried, 3.50 each. Crazy price for beer that was so bad I could only stomach about 2 ounces each. Prices on beer are very high, probably making up for less traffic at the place. If the beer was free, I would never drink it again. Save yourself the wasted time and money and skip this place.

Not the prettiest place or in the prettiest neighborhood. The wood paneled walls might be going for an old lake cottage or dive bar feel but it wasn't really my thing. Food took forever to come out and when it did it was pretty mediocre, with my limp fries being the most obvious mistake. Beer was decent however with a nice but not overly exciting selection. Service was fine; I would've liked an apology for just how long the food took though. Price for one of the bottles I bought to go was higher than that listed on the menu which always annoys me, especially when it's a menu they clearly have to print up relatively often.

Great little "gem". I love their BA beers that you can purchase to go. Hopefully they stay relatively under the radar so I can continue to stop by EVERY time i'm nearby to buy some BA bottles and enjoy a great meal and a beer.

The requisite interesting old building.
Large enough draft selection, more regulars but a few seasonals/one offs.
Vintage bottles are a tad high, but the market bears it I guess. I still bought the last 2011 Lost Sailor.
Food was excellent. The place was packed on a non-football Sunday afternoon, looked like mostly with people for meals.

Good beer and good food selection. Perhaps a tad pricey for Michigan City.
