I went here recently and wished I had gone to this place more during my stay in the Northampton area. They are not open that late, that might one reason why.

The restaurant is situated in a unique setting, it is inside of an old, gigantic industrial building with several other businesses. Very large parking lot. The dining rooms are spacious and the bar is also nice. It has an "outer-space" theme with cool decor placed all around. Its almost like a galactic diner mixed with nice restaurant.

Quality for everything was good. The beers we ordered were served properly and fresh. Food was the same way. Bartender was quick, not exactly beer-oriented but this place caters to anyone. Waitress was nice and treated us nicely.

Beer selection was well rounded with seasonals, lighter styles, stouts, porters, a barleywine, hoppy beers, etc. Also whiskey and other spirits, mixed drinks to choose from.

Food was great. We ordered several appetizers and entrees and I tried a bit of each. Gnocchi was delicious as well as the salmon and pork entrees. Appetizers were creative and tasty. Beer price and food price were reasonable and worth the money.

Finally graced this place after wanting to go there for the longest time. The restaurant utilizes space in the Eastworks building, which is an old mill in Easthampton that now has shops, businesses, and even some apartments.

When you enter the restaurant, there is a dining area to your left and a bar to your right. The bar had a few tables and seats. There was a plasma TV which was on the Red Sox game. I went there for a social networking occasion so most of my time there was mingling with people. The space definitely helped people socialize without feeling crowded.

There were about 6 beers on tap, two of which were a "special" draft for the evening. Noticed Ommegang and Anchor Steam on tap. I did not eat anything there, but my friends had a delicious burger plate with a fried calamari appetizer. I sampled from their plates and the food was excellent.

If I lived in Easthampton, MA I would definitely make this my bar of choice to hangout. I can't wait to go there again for more social occasions or a dinner.

Let me preface this review by saying that the Apollo Grill has in its ownership a BA member. Kim, or apollokim on BA, is a big beer fan and doing her best to showcase some of the best beer she can get her hands on.

Located inside the Eastworks building, the same on that has the RMV, Apollo Grill is a cool, eclectic bar/grill/restaurant with an outerspace theme along with a pretty sweet salt and pepper shaker collection going on. You can either sit in the bar area or in one of two large dining rooms, all are very comfortable.

Service is excellent! I can't say enough about the attention that I've gotten from the waitstaff/barstaff at the Apollo Grill.

Kim is doing her very best to get a great selection of craft beers on tap. Everytime I've been the selection has been way above par. Southern Tier, Weyerbacher, Founders, Pretty Things etc...the draft selection is constantly changing as well.

Food is great, its a notch above pub food with some great specialties and excellent appetizers. I've had a number of different dishes and all have been very good.

Let me close by saying that the Apollo Grill has hosted the first two meet-ups for the Pioneer Valley Tasting/Trading Group. Kim has allowed 10 or so people to bring their own beer to her establishment to share and enjoy as well as provided water and glassware to do so. Talk about awesome!

A great place with some great beer and a BA as part of the ownership!
