I've been to fitters dozens of times. Bar staff is pretty good; certainly not outstanding. Most know next to nothing about craft beer. Fitters has 3-5 rotating taps almost always 1 is schlafly. Boulevard is also common. Place can be very loud especially in the bar section. Fitters has cooler of crafts some of which are served past their due date. Bar staff seem oblivious to this. Food is standard pub fair--sandwiches, pizza, nachos etc. Food is pretty good. Even with the cons it's probably still the best place to drink in Sedalia.

This place is horrible. I used to frequent this bar a lot but now I don't bother. Yes they can claim they have 20 taps but half at most times are empty. Their home-brews are always flat and they are always out of them too; hardly what you would consider a brewpub. The wait staff has no idea what you are talking about if you order a beer that is not a Bud Light. The food is normal frozen junk then thrown on a grill, in a microwave or in a fryer. NEVER WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS PLACE. If you are looking for a solid beer then head down 3 blocks to Wine and More where you can build your own 6 pack.

i used to go to this place every once in a while i was stationed at Whiteman AFB which was about 20 miles away, it is a nice place to go if you like more of a mellow atmosphere compared to the other bars in the area, and it is the only bar with a good beer selection besides BLVD (i like blvd but a lot of places have it in mo) and bud, miller stuff. they also have pretty good food, nothing fancy just standard bar & grill type food and the service was very good. i would definitley give this place a try if you live in the area.

Visited on a Saturday night as I was driving through town. Located in "historic downtown Sedalia," this place reminded me of almost any bar that you'll see in the "downtown" section of a small town. Not many people there, TVs tuned to NASCAR, and a little smokey.

As for their selection, apparently they only have one "house" beer on tap, although I'm not sure the waitstaff is aware. When I sat down at the bar, I asked the bartender which of their beers did they have on tap. She said she wasn't sure, and asked the other bartender who said, "Boulevard Dry Stout." She then asked him which of their beers, and he said, "I dunno. I wouldn't touch the stuff." She gave me a look and I said that I didn't care what it was, I'd have a glass. She insisted that I try a sample first in case I didn't like it, so I agreed. The beer was good. Nothing great, but it was drinkable. So I ordered a pint for $3.50.

The bartender chatted with me for the time I was there, and she was friendly enough. I might stop back again if I go through town with friends, but not someplace I'd go just for the beer and the atmosphere.
