horrible service. could drink or dine and dash with ease if you wanted to. not enough bar tenders working to accommodate the amount of people they have in there on the regular. beer selection and food is great and only thing that saves this place.

Great happy hour deals on food and michigan beers. Their taps are pretty impressive. They always seem to have at least one beer on tap that i have never seen anywhere else.

The staff was awesome, very friendly and helpful for my brother-in-law who is not familiar with craft beer. Food was also on point.

I Don't like the service. Servers/bartenders have an elitist attitude. It's like they think that if you don't work there you know nothing about beer.
