I ordered butter chicken for the first time.... just outstanding. Would have like to have had a regular "larger beer" on the beer selection menue as I don't like big, heavy beers.... overall a great meal...

Been here before. Sat out on the patio which keeps the noise down. Beer selection very good. Had the sliders and street tacos which were good and well prepared

Nice venue, but service lacking. Service was slow, not attentive to details.
Food ok, but not memorable.

My husband and I were looking for a low key, casual restaurant with great food and service to enjoy our Valentines Day dinner. This was a good choice.

We went for lunch/brunch. Interesting menu and well prepared. The Bloody Mary comes with shrimp and bacon. The service was quite good --cordial and not pushy. Beet salad was very good.

Great for lunch too...had the Mary's butter Chicken and Naan and Falafel burger for my veggie friend while sharing a side salad. We split the burger and put the Chicken curry on top of a mound of salad and fries and voila a masterpiece!

Great food but process issues. 15 minutes to sit with a resevaation seemed excessive for a weeknight (not full). Waiter took forever and dropped the ball on checking in on us..."How's the food, how's the drink, can I get you another drink, etc..."

Beer selection was great! Food was tremendous! Pork nuggets were recommended by our server, and they did not disappoint! Our entrees were delicious as well. We had a reservation, asked to sit outside by fire towers and it was no problem! Quick service, great food, great drinks, wonderful ambiance!! Will come again for sure!!! Thanks Colton!!

We were one of 3 tables and the drinks took way too long as well as the service. There Was only one bartender and one server at 11:30 am the day before Christmas eve. And I don’t know why it was so slow. Food was eh. But we left buzzed and in the Christmas spirit with co workers.

Aesthetically, the place is beautiful, and the service was very good. The breakfast food is below average and the drink menu is limited. The bathrooms were disgusting. I would not return

As much as I to give Beer Baron a great review, we left disappointed. The Butter Chicken had poor quality chicken pieces throughout, the Chicken and Waffles had way too much fat on the chicken, and to top it off, the Long Island Ice Tea's were short on the alcohol. We went during a very busy night, but that doesn't excuse the quality. We did have awesome service!

Last minute lunch with kids and friends. V limited kids menu (3 items) but great chips (duck fries) and the falafel burger was superb. The place NEEDS plain ketchup and MAYONNAISE!!! Seriously, why can they not serve mayo???!!

Service was a bit off, duck fries were not as wonderful as expected (didn't taste any different and texture was like frozn fries - not fresh).

Thus place is a good place to have drinks and have some great food. I prefer it outside because it’s.a little noisy inside especially for the grandparents. Otherwise a great place!

Depends on which bar tender is on duty as to the quality of the cocktails, but if you come at the right time it’s tasty food and great drinks. Duck fat fries are a must have. Great bourbon selection.

We came in pretty late and had dinner at 830. But at then the DJ started sound checks and damn near blew out our ear drums. Our table, unfortunately, was right next to the DJ booth and had staff shouting over us to the DJ near the end of our dinner. Couldn’t get out fast enough. Food and service was great otherwise. Wasn’t a pleasant experience. But I guess it’s our fault for having dinner so late.

Such a great dinner! Great food, and awesome service. When my husband asked to try a whiskey they sent the whiskey guy to our table to figure exactly what he would like. He was so excited! We opted to sit outside because it was so loud inside, and the patio is really nice!
