    Great seasonal beers on tap as well as their staple year round beers. Food was amazing and very suprising given its a brewery. The cuban was delicious as were the deviled eggs app. Spacious dining room and tables, great hang out spot for a large group of friends.

    Great service, lots of beer options. server recommended egg plant fires and they were excellent and btw I dont like egg plant typically! Bison burgers were tasty and a good size portion. Greek chicken wrap was flavorful but chicken was dry, needed more tzatziki. one personninnour group of 3 had not been there before and she really enjoyed the place too.

    Well, not worth the price. Very disappointed in the quality, serving and representation of the food. The misleading description of my salmon blt was disappointing. “Smoked salmon”. I was expecting a thick piece of salmon but got lox instead. The side of potato salad was only a tablespoon. That’s not a side. 2” thick bread to make it looks like it’s a big sandwich. Oh, let’s not forget the server barely came to our table and forgot to put in our devil eggs. But the beer was great!

    Always liked their Floridian, so when it came up as an option for a party of 7 I made a lunch reservation, for an outside table. The table was in a little cave-like structure, with another opposite and with seating only on one side, like in the "Last Supper." This made conversation awkward, and it felt like we and the people at the other table were on display for one another. The beer selection was huge. Our party probably tasted about 12 different beers out of the 30 or so they had on the menu. Half of them were either mediocre (the red ale) or downright bad (the Buddha light). Some were great, but the list felt very gimicky... with a "margarita" gose and a "Key Lime Pie" ale. The food was actually pretty good, though. The big surprise was that everything was served in take-out containers instead of on plates, with no explanation. If it was due to COVID, why how did they manage to serve the beers in actual glassware? (Their website doesn't mention any COVID-related precautions, and has photos of food on actual plates...) That, plus the fact that we were all sitting in one long row, made it hard to share the appetizers we got for the table. All of the appetizers were great, though, except the merely so-so yucca "tater tots" which weren't crispy at all. The sandwiches everyone had were also very good, with the Nashville hot chicken sandwich and the bratwurst getting the biggest thumbs up. When I walked through the inside area to use the restroom, it felt dark and dead and it made me glad we were in the awful outdoor cave. Overall, the experience was on the lower end of "meh." Would still get a Floridian or one of their IPAs while out at another bar, but not there.

    Good food. Waiter was super friendly. Order wasn’t perfect, but hey, it is a bar food place—nothing awful happened (wrong sides, items wrong on burgers). The food was super tasty, however; it staff was friendly and quick, price was very reasonable, the beer drinkers among us loved it. We will certainly return.

    Enjoyed our first visit to Funky Buddha Brewery for dinner. The menu was better than expected and their own Spritzers were quite good. Tried the mango guava spritzer and really liked it. Their board with cheeses and meats was very good and generous and their garlic hummus was the best! Also shared the eggplant sticks and yucca bites that were very good. My hubby said his veggie burger was probably the best veggie burger he's ever tried. We'll definitely be back!
