Our first meal in the Jefferson park area was phenomenal! Started with a house salad and finished with the Mac n cheese with steak. Amelia our waitress was extremely attentive and we will certainly be back! Also enjoyed their old fashioned. A+

Food, drinks, and service were all excellent! My waiter was super fun and helpful and made sure my cocktail was made special for me (not too sweet). I got the Common Burger and it was delicious! I opted for the house salad, but also got to try the house chips which were also fantastic. I will definitely be back :)

We sat on the rooftop deck. It was a perfect day....sunny with a nice breeze. The shade cover worked great. The rooftop has nice plantings around the railing.
Service was quick. There was a nice choice of beers and the server brought us samples of their offerings. The food menu has something for everyone. The Buffalo cauliflower bites are awesome. We were well pleased with our choices.

Cool spot up on the rooftop patio, they were out of a few menu items but we were probably the last reservation of the day at 830pm. Service, food, and ambiance all amazing.

Thank you for the great review, Sara! I apologize about being out a few couple items. Unfortunately, there has been a nationwide shortage of a lot of items and there have been several other issues regarding distribution. We are doing everything we can to provide all of our menu items each day. Nonetheless, I'm happy to hear your visit went well and we hope to see you again soon!

Excellent service all around. We weren’t able to get an outdoor table, but the staff kept their eyes on the tables and moved us to one midway through dinner. Server was attentive, lively, interesting and accommodating. Food was great. Smiles on everyone that we came across and all were interactive. Great dining experience!

Great building and bar area, with enough room for people to sit and socialize. Not too loud, but certainly not dull, the place was alive on a Friday night. We didn't make it up to the rooftop area, but saw it on arriving and leaving - looks super fun and inviting.

The buffalo cauliflower is worth every positive review - our table of 6 had one serving and we all wish we ordered a second. It was gone in a hot minute. Tuna salads, burgers and an amazing Ruben rounded out the meal selections and everything was perfect. One could say it took an extra minute to get the food, but it was a Friday night and they were busy.

Server did a great job of taking care of us and keeping us smiling. Regular updates on the food and refreshing of the drinks was perfect. Service was a plus for us - no negatives, just light and fun.

Would we go back? Yep! Already planning a second trip with the goal of enjoying the rooftop. We loved Briar Common Brewery. Thank you!

They were incredibly busy and a storm moved through causing people to move in from the patio and there was a bit of a wait from our reservation time, but they were so kind and accommodating and even gave us a free round of drinks for our patience which was not at all necessary, but appreciated. Food was fantastic, server was great, will definitely go back.

We really enjoyed this spot! Great atmosphere. Got seated right away on our reservation. Lively atmosphere, all tables taken. Everyone working here was friendly.

Food: we had Mac n cheese, Buffalo cauliflower, and the Nashville hot chicken. For a $17 entree the chicken felt small. I also was totally expecting a sandwich and wish the menu had listed it as a piece of chicken on a piece of toast, more like a bbq spot. Came with a good potato salad. The Mac was rich but honesty I’m always underwhelmed by any restaurant Mac n cheese. I think it’s for some people definitely, but not my favorite. I loved the Buffalo cauli. For $13 it was a great serving and we had leftovers.

Drinks: I loved my cocktail- the why you so prickly was surprising, light, flavorful and delish. My fiancé got the tequila cocktail with an ipa in it and it was tasty. The fries are like Chili’s.

Service: very friendly but very slow consistently. That said I didn’t really mind it bc I was enjoying the company and vibes. I would come back!

Parking: limited

Food was great, beer was delicious and the most outstanding was the service. We are there twice in one week and had the same server. He was one of the best servers we’ve ever had. Took care of us and our crazy crew of kids and made it fun for them.
