We had reservations but were refused entrance by the “bouncer” as EVERYONE had them. Look it was a fundraiser and I get that but we made and confirmed a reservation that was basically ignored and THEN told - it wasn’t our kind of place anyway. They should have never accepted the reservation in the first place.

I was very excited as the reviews were good and beer selection was great. The waitress Marina seemed very rushed and promptly explained how busy they were and gave us an estimate of 41 minutes on food...didn’t set the mood to say the least, especially with reservations. The positive is they did fill the special request of location in the restaurant , which was nice. The beer came quickly which was great but the food came almost 45 min later after seeing our exact entrees served to a couple guest that arrived 25 min after us. Dumb luck, but still irritating. The food was subpar and fries cold. Luckily our server made sure to have a fresh hot basket out almost momentarily after we expressed our concerns. Sadly the experience was like trying to raise the Titanic and we will not be back, except maybe for a beer. Again, it’s sad to have to lump a great server in with crap food and bad kitchen service but a restaurant is a team and 70 dollars could have been spent much better ways.

Bar downstairs is small so go upstairs to restaurant. Bigger than you think. Early lunch so noise not an issue. Oysters were ice cold--great and lunch was very good. Fish and chips light and delicious, French fries great. Chicken sandwich was tasty. So many beers to order! Had a coffee stout---good brunch choice. Waitress was very nice.

No one told us that if we sat roof top that we’d have to fend for ourselves. The chairs were ridiculously uncomfortable. The food was ok but nothing special. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

It is very consistent, affordable and easy to get a table. Great draft selection and the appetizers are really good. The service has been great every time.

Servers were in a disagreement with each other and not hiding it from patrons. Food was mediocre at best and order wasn’t fulfilled...just replaced with a different option that was not offered to us ... simply given. Not good enough Beer Authority!!
