  • "We had reservations for 7pm, were seated in an out of the way behind the stairs, good view of outside, nice area, but there were several large groups nearby. I had to go get the server after 15 min because no one even came to the table for a drink order. Our appetizer was set on the table and our dinner came less than 15 sec later. no time to enjoy the appetizer and we felt rushed. I will look else where next time I eat in the down town area."

  • "Great beer, great atmosphere and good service. The only downfall is the food and price of the food. It is ok, but for the price it should be much better."

  • "The ribs were great, the burgers were wonderful, but the sides left us wanting more!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a party of 10 who ordered during the lunch hour. Our waitress was lacking personality and to be honest given the gratituty on our checks, I would have given her a lower tip. She didn't greet us, tells us about the daily food item for Thursday nor did she stop and ask how everything was. She did one thing right and that was to bring refills on water/coke other than that. Her customer service skills were poor and we won't be back."

  • "My only complaint was it was cold where we were sitting."
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "Service was timely and nicely done. There were four in our party. One had a salad with a special dressing that had a kick to it. Another had a gluten-free dish that was delicious. She appreciated the 'gf' designation by several dishes so she had several dining choices. A third had a burger and I had the four cheese mac n cheese and both were very good. Two chose housemade beers that were great. Another chose wine and a fourth chose water. We had a pleasant dining experience."

  • "We had a group of 11 and our waitress was outstanding! Very helpful and just spot on with everything. Food was great, noise level was good and we all had a wonderful dinner! Will be back many more times in the future."

  • "Nine transitioned from an offsite retreat to RRBC for a late lunch and more conversation. The staff was pleasant and attentive without becoming overbearing. The drinks were brought out timely, as was our luncheon order. Everyone's dish were received as requested (no returns to the kitchen). The flavor of the Tallgrass Ale Cheese Soup was nicely balanced between the ale and cheese without the distraction of the rue and was smooth in texture. The Thai Cobb salad was tasty but I would suggest ordering this salad with dressing on the side as it was a bit on the heavy side. Our meeting conversation went past our hour of dining. Thankfully, the staff remained attentive to any beverage needs and did not interrupt or try to shue us out."

  • "Unique menu items. Great flavor. Portion size good. Would have enjoyed a better selection of their beers but those available we're good"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Great spot if your looking for something different. We had the calimari for an app, and burgers, and everything was great, and came in big portions - we took probably half of it home with us! It was a great night for my husband's birthday & we would definitely go back again!"

  • "I had 'THE HOOLIGAN', it's a burger topped with blackened beef tips and Maytag blue cheese with chipotle mayo. Super good and just the right about of messy. I washed it down with one of raccoons house beers. It really hit the spot. Great attentive service."
