Atmosphere was perfect. We were seated outside on a cool summer night. Couldn't ask for a better arrangement. The bar also looked nice with several flat screen TV's and ample lighting.
Beer selection was pretty good with a huge focus on craft beer. When a place has a separate menu for beer, it's a good sign. They actually had a 3-4 page menu specifically for beer (includes draft and bottled).
Food was pretty good, and ranged from southwestern, seafood to american pubfare like burgers.
Service wasn't a problem for us. We were given everything we needed promptly. The food even came quicker than expected which was a good thing because we were starving.
Overall - worth the trip. I'll go back.

This place definitely has its heart in the right place, but it has some room to grow.

The place is relatively spare, with bare wood booths and tables, but it is surprisingly cozy, with a fireplace and good light from the ample windows - it is bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside.

The beer list is good - among the better ones in the area, though maybe not in the top five. It includes some good if not exotic choices, such as Stone, Troegs, and Lagunitas. When we visited, they had Mad Elf on draft, which is a good choice. And they get props for having locals, including Blue Mountain and the little-circulated Devil's Backbone. I found, however, that the 5-beer sampler was strangely conceived and laid out (with an old ale, a Belgian Strong ale, two pale ales, and a vienna lager). Still, this is a good list by the still-developing standards of Central Virginia.

The food was adequate but unspectacular. Decent pub food, but little more - we had decent turkey/croissant sandwiches, a kid's pizza, and a rather gummy curry corn chowder.

The service was cheerful but painfully slow. It took several minutes for anyone to greet us at the door and an impossibly long time to get beer from the bar. The hostess brought coloring paper for the kids but forgot the crayons, which seemed like a strange oversight.

The prices are good.
