Have been coming here for years! Service is ALWAYS good no matter how busy (and it gets busy at night during the summer). Place is somewhat small but I enjoy it. Very clean and kept that way. Food selection is very good and is always prepared to perfection. Beer selection is also very good. Beverages are always kept full and wait staff actually cares about each of their patrons. I don't personally know the owner but I have seen him on more than a few occasions in the restaurant talking with staff and customers. Seems like really nice guy. Definitely my favorite place in town and right down the street! If you are in this neck of the woods give Kahootz a try!

Hadn't been into this place for 4-5 years: apparently ownership has turned over and the place is a heck of a lot better than it used to be.

Wife and I hit it Kahootz @ 8:51 on a Monday night, only to find out that their kitchen closes at 9:00. No worries, our server says, we order anyway and the food was really good, just straight up quality pub fare; best Reuben I'd ever had, and the wings are huge!

There is a good atmosphere, feels like a nice pub, and seating seems good plus there is a covered patio across the parking lot. Our server (Cameron I think?) was simply one of the coolest guys I've ever dealt with, kept working while he talked but really enjoyed talking beer and about how proud he was of the pub.

Selection is great, there are like 30 beers on tap including a cask beer and from the looks of other reviews they turn over fast: this place is popular! Wasn't too busy on a Monday night though...we'll see how it is next time.

Everything seemed a touch pricey though for a pub/beer bar, that's really my only complaint. Overall a really fun place...when its not busy.

A great (40+) beer selection on tap. Usually a cask beer available as well. Ask your waitress about new selections or walk up to the bar and peruse the tap handles. Some of the beers are pricey - $5.25 for a pint of Rogue Chocolate Stout last week. Every beer is delivered in a icy pint glass - you can get a warm glass if you ask.

All the food is good - standard pub fare for lunch. The fish tacos are always good and a personal favorite. Dinner is very good - usually several selections of various cuts of meat or seafood prepared in different manners.

Service is great, but the food delivery is sometimes slow when the place is packed for dinner. As long as I have a pint to sip on, I don't mind as the food is worth the wait. The service is always quick at other times.
