Based on a visit there 10 15 09. Review from limited notes, mainly memory.

Atmosphere Kind of an open warehouse feel, as you enter the stone oven is on the left, deep and to the left is the brewery and more near you is the seating with enough for probably 150 people. The day that we went there it was only modestly full and it was easy to get a table. I liked the atmosphere which was very "brewpub" with the visible brewing facilities and I like the warehouse openness. 4.0

Quality Good with correctly presented beers, a modern kitchen and professional staff. 4.0

Service Good. Our waitress was patient and informative. We really did not interact with anyone else there. 4.0

Selection Fair to good. I do not think that Arcadia Ales are all that special but it is a micro brew pub so it is not like I think that it is bad. 3.5

Food The best part of our experience. We got a wood oven grilled pita with hummus that was simply incredible. We regret not ordering a pizza from that wood oven grill as I am sure that it would be been sublime. Really, my wife and I talked about how good that appetizer was for the day or so after that. 4.5

Value Just fine.

Stopped here after a day with the kids at Binder Park Zoo for a late lunch, around 3. Place wasn't bust at all, middle of the week. A couple tables occupied, and that's about it. Wide, open floor plan with a wood fired oven to the left, cooler and merchandise area to the right. Straight ahead of where you walk in is the brewing area, walled off with large panes of glass to look into through. Towards the back is the bar. We were seated in an area that was kinda walled off with a half wall that had some Unibroue tin tacks hanging, of all things. The other walls are decorated with poster sized versions of Arcadia labels, with two large chalkboards displaying the ales on tap for the day.

Menu is pretty awesome, I had the brewer's brisket sandwich, my wife had the Cheddar Ale Soup and a salad, the kids split a pizza. All the food was great, and I especially liked the smokey, tender brisket.

Ale selection was good. I didn't know what to expect since the Arcadia Ales I've had so far have ranged from meh to all right. The ones I had on this visit were good to fantastic. Would go again, and will probably pick up more Arcadia in the future.

I always make sure to stop by Arcadia when I'm in town. There is always a nice selection of beer of various styles (it's not quite as heavily English influenced as I think they claim to be, but that's a good thing to me). Their pizza is great and I've only once ordered a sandwich which was a bit of a letdown by comparison. Service was friendly but a bit slow at times.

Brisket was outstanding. Bartender was knowledgeable and place was clean and non-smoking. Two rooms separate dinning from drinking.
