I've eaten here on many occasions and also have come out for tappings of special beers, eg BCBS, Black Note, etc.

Atmosphere wise, this is a very nice place. A bit of a trendy BBQ house, there is nothing cheap about the atmosphere. It's perfect for both a nice dinner out with the family or a date with a significant other. It can be a bit loud depending on how many people are there, but the acoustics are better than most for handling that many people.

Quality is very nice. As noted before, its got a trendy design, the surfaces are clean, relatively new and appropriate for the setting.

The servers are rather prompt though it can slow down during the busy parts of the night. Bartenders are great and always patrolling the bar to make sure your glass is full.. and friendly to boot. Easy to talk to them about beer and what they have in the back!

The beer selection is great. They have at least 15-20 taps just in the downstairs bar alone, with some more upstairs. Mostly Wisconsin and midwest regional locals, but once in a while they'll have some awesome beer like BCBS, Black Note, aged Peruvian Morning, etc. that shows up on Facebook but isn't on the menu. So in a way you have to be in the know to be able to order some, and I would suggest to them that it be on the menu- but with the requisite "15% ABV, not for the faint of heart", etc. but then again, the clientele often is of the bourbon drinkers' variety, so how bad can it be?

Food is awesome. Really love the blackened catfish here. Sides are a bit small-ish, but not necessarily insufficient in size- portions overall are just about right for dinner. The sausage plate is very good too.

$$-$$$: can be a bit pricey, as it can all add up.. but some of the stuff on the beer menu is awesomely cheap, like $3 a pint cheap. I would expect to pay $15-20 a person for a beer and a meal.
