Nice, big bar with some stuff on the walls and a large bar.
Lots of people, and unfortunately lots of smoke.
Beer was delicious and fresh and all of their regulars were on tap, plus their special reserve, which I had never had, but alas, no cask. Service was typical bar service: speak fast or go thirsty, but pretty friendly and knowledgable. The Arcadia brewer and Dark Horse brewer were there, so it couldn;t have been that bad.
Nice place to visit, but not worth the trip for me, as I have had all of their stuff on tap at Crunchy's in East Lansing.

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.
