vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.25 | selection: 3.75 | food: 4.5

Visited on a friday night, quite busy.

I just spent the weekend in central PA with a focus on Knobels. I visited a number of brew pubs. This is the best one in the area, including Selin's Grove Brewing. The restaurant is food focused but I could see how the bar is all about the beer.

Vibe - Kid friendly, but also appealing to a bar fly or a couple without children. I like this place very much.

Quality - Fresh, proper temp, proper glasses. The beers on tap that I had were good. Any BA would be happy with the beer.

Service - Good, with the crowd it was a little slow but generally good. Server was knowledgble about the beer and the menu.

Selection - Somewhat disappointed in the selection available on the day of my visit - it was summer but still only one dark or heavy or strong beer on tap. IMO the beer is good, I rated low because of the limited selection. It would also be nice if they had a guest tap or two.

Food - Excellent - Had the bleu cheese burger. Others in the group had the beef sandwich and salad with chicken. The beer cheese is very good. The pretzel bread for sandwiches is unique and great.

Value - Probably the most expensive place in Danville, but a great value for those of us from the big city.

This small brewery/brewpub in downtown Danville produces some decent beer and the pub serves good burgers, sandwiches and other fare. It has a pleasing atmosphere and the staff is friendly. My only complaint is that some of the cans for sale were rather old.

Great little pub in downtown Danville, PA. Beers are interesting, atmosphere is good, and the majority of the workers are excellent! Usually have 15-18 beers available at anytime with a good variety for all palates. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

Pretty quaint looking place, some small tables to eat at along with a small bar to sit at. The service was good, the food was pretty solid as well. The selection of beers wasn't bad. Would consider stopping in again if I was in the area.

Cool store front operation...Bar on the left, dining are on right (looked like there is an upstairs, but did not go there). Bar seats about 12. A dozen beers on tap, the 3 I had were solid. Did not try the food.

The place has a nice old style pub feel only more bright and open. They had a decent selection of beers and one cask. I tried four of their beers all solid. We went light on food, but what we had was excellent. They also had a band playing good music and lots of fun.

Visited here in the summer of 2014. Quaint place with a solid food menu and real local vibe. A must visit if you're in central PA and visiting Knobels.
