My wife and I visited here for dinner on Valentine's Day.

As you enter, the bar area is off to the left and the main dining area is to the right. The bar area has tons of flat screen TV mounted on the walls. A few pool tables are surrounded by a number of high top tables. The bar itself is along the back wall, which is partially made of windows, exposing the brewing area.

The current beer selections are highlighted on a giant chalk board hanging from the ceiling. There were probably 8 different offerings, ranging from light to dark. They give lots of info on each brew, including a brief description and ABV.

The service was slow at first, but ended up being above average. Our waiter returned to our table a number of times to make sure we were satisfied.

The food was very good. I had a burger and my wife had a salad. We both were satisfied. We both had the imperial stout (served in a snifter, thank you), which was excellent.

Overall a good experience. The beer itself would get a $$, but the food jumps the value up to a $$$. Would go here again...

A sticky, high-top dominated sports bar where sports are cranked to 11 even when nothing is playing. While it is a relatively modern bar, the drinks and the brews seem to get sloshed around so regularly that to bother to clean it up is looked at as a hassle by the wait staff. Needless to say the crowd at game time would be raucous and rowdy, but don't say I didn't warn you.

They have a moderate selection of house brews, but all of them, literally all of them, are very light-bodied and watery. And the food is pretty typical chain restaurant fare. Service is mainly focused on getting in and out and on to the next one, so don't expect much fluency in beer.

not a bad place. kinda of sportsbar feel in the bar area, and normal restaurant on the other side... i hate to say it, but i do not like their beers. if i was at a party and you had one of them, i' mean sure i'd drink it, but i'd also dink an old e 40 at a tailgate and i have cbs bombers in my basement. not mad at the place, but its nothing special

Have been coming here often the past month. The bar is kinda on the small side. They do have a cool bar area where they keep your drinks on a frosted area instead of using a traditional coaster. I went here last Friday nite with friend. We met there around 930pm and the place was pretty packed. Did not take long though to get two seats at the end of the bar and a couple of beers. Both the bartenders were real good. The one kept telling us jokes. They had a decent selection of beers on draft. The uppity jag off was so good my friend and I both got a Growler of it to go at a good price too. They have a nice reward system involving there mug club card. The card also upgrades your beer to the 22oz glass intstead of 16oz for the same price. Overall I liked the place alot. The beers are a little pricey, but most of them are fantastically brewed. Well Done.
