Ate dinner at the bar. The bar area has high top tables as well in addition to the dining area. Good draft list, mix of local and national craft beer brands. Good variety of styles and most were high quality. Options of 12 oz or 20 oz pours. Bartenders were busy so my beer glass sat empty for a bit.

Very extensive bottle selection with some surprises on tap(found Hammer of the Beast recently). Food portion sizes are on the small side but delicious nonetheless.

Stopped in with some friends and the wife this week. Really easy to get to off the highway in Columbia. Big place with a nice bar, and very large tap and bottle list. Food was off the hook. Got the lobster grilled cheese with bacon, as well as the duck confit poutine. Also a nice list of ciders. Both are insanely highly recommended. Definitely stop in if you're nearby. Can't imagine you'd be disappointed.

Came here for brunch. It's in a shopping center and a pretty standard vibe for the area. Inside is very nice, lots of dark wood and booths in little alcoves. We sat outside on the patio.

Service was fantastic, very friendly and easy going. Helpful and knowledgeable in terms of the beer list.

Food was far better than expected. They had a tomato soup special so I asked about modifying the lobster grilled cheese to another type of "adult" grilled cheese (bacon, tomato, and porter onions) and it was fantastic. I wouldn't say I'd drive 4 hours to have that again but if I'm ever in Columbia again I'd absolutely go back here.

As others have mentioned this place is somewhat upscale. I was here a day after a Clown Shoes tap takeover. Excellent selections on tap including the Clown Shoes. Plus a large bottle list. The only food I had was a cheese plate and it was excellent. It is a bit pricey but the selection is great for the area. Would go here more often if lived closer.

Really nice restaurant with great beer, wine and spirit offerings. When your inside you feel like your in a European establishment, only to look outside and see parking lots and busy American streets. Had a young educated looking clientele overall but it was very comfortable and friendly vibe. Waiter was great as well. Gave me free beer samples before I made a decision.
