Stopped here all by my lonesome on a research trip.

Typically averabe, bare brick, crap on the wall brewpub atmosphere. The beer was OK, but everything kind of tasted the same, which is disappointing. The server was freakin' awesome, brought a tall glass of water with my sampler without my even asking, burger was actually cooked medium, as I asked and he was very friendly. This was definitely the highlight of the place. He left me alone, except to make sure I was happy and let me read my book in peace. As a frequent alone diner, due to travelling, polite privacy is key.

Anyway, they have alot of beers, but they all taste the same and are OK.

I stopped in heere a few times during the afternoon to hydrate with some beer after dragging grandchildren up and down the street. the beer is decent and the clientel mostly tourists. I can't say much about the night time vibe.
