The beer is top tier which should surprise no one. Besides the Town Hall beers, there where many other options, both foreign and domestic. They started serving local beers so I saw Surly, Summit, and Brau Brothers on-tap. Also three hand-pulled ales available.

Service and atmosphere can be hit or miss. My latest visit was very disappointing. Too many screaming kids for my tastes. Better to come when the families are not around. The service varies from good to poor. The food is very good and the kitchen seems well run, too bad this great food is left to die a slow death in the pass-through. This last time I know my order sat there for over 10 minutes. Had the pork wings, the wings were just barely warm and the fries were a touch soggy. Not the kitchens fault I was served this. Could not even comment because the server never bothered to come back and ask me how it was. Bad form.

Prices are about what I expected considering the location and quality of beer and food.

If they could get the front of house figured out, this would be one of the best establishments in the metro.

One of my local Taverns. I have loved the food every time I have come here. Great especially in the summer when you can sit outside, or as many have pointed out, they open the garage doors and the inside feels a bit like being outside.
I like the beer selection. Regular and seasonal selections. I was surprised how familiar their 1800 tasted to me--then I remembered I brewed the clone kit from N.B.
Parking can be a little hard to find. be prepared to walk about a block.

This is a wonderful neighborhood place that sells beer from the Town Hall microbrewery. Its a very casual, friendly vibe. They feature 8 of their beers, 4 nitro taps, 4 ciders, 3 cask beers, 8 guest casks, and 10 bottled beers. They serve a wide variety of bar foods - sandwiches and things deep fried. You go here for the beer - the food is a little better at their brewery downtown and the downtown location has more outdoor seating but this is still very nice.

Visited on a Sunday night. Slow at 9:30. Looked just like regulars in the place. Sat at the bar.

Vibe - A townie bar if it wasn't known all over the US by BAs. Dark and worn inside. The place has windows and a garage door that open up the entire bar to the street/sidewalk and a small outdoor patio. This time of year it was wide open and inviting. Patio closes early though during the week – did not get to sit outside :-( Overall a great old fashion bar in an old fashion town but with a new twist. 4.25

Service - Friendly. Bartender was appropriately distant. 4

Selection - Good house beers and a good selection of guest beers. 4

Quality - Different glasses, temperature was good, three beer engines. 4.5

Food – I ate the Heidelberg burger. It was great! Fries were crispy - 4.25

Price - 20oz house beers for $5.50 fantastic compared to DC and NY. Two big beers and a burger and fries for about $20 (excluding tip) was excellent. - $
