The Lamb Burgers and Fish and Chips are both delicious. The local beer on tap are terrific. The staff is very polite and helpful. The ambiance is homey and comfortable.
A great selection of beers and sandwiches were excellent. Nobody in my party ordered dinners but entrees have always been good in the past. Waitress was excellent supplying beer samples for tasting and getting separate checks for our party .. no mistakes! Only complaint is with noise level.. little hard too hear conversation. .. but typical brewpub atmosphere. Great for our men's group. .. we'll be back.
We couldn't get a reservation for 8 at a chain restaurant nearby on a Saturday night so went to Growlers instead. Everyone liked their food and the service was good, especially given that we were a big group. No complaints - we will happily return when we are in the area.
Went last Saturday with the family to try something new. Unfortunately the pub was seemingly short-staffed, and service was overwhelmed and forgetful ( I asked twice for a glass of water that never arrived). The appetizer came out burnt, but was good even for that. We quite liked the fish and chips, and the chorizo burger was average. The biggest issue for us was the noise--the dining area is on the small side, and with nothing to dampen the sound in the space it got quite loud. That's okay for a happy-hour group, but not for a nice Saturday lunch. I think it would be a good bar spot, but as a restaurant not so much.
Great food (shrimp and grits were to die for), service, beer, and atmosphere. My wife and I took our grade school kids there and it was perfect.
We were there for a soccer tournament. The restaurant has a fishy smell.
First, the service and the beer were outstanding. We had the seasonal beer (hint of pumpkin)and it was great. The waiter suggested I try a sample and that was a good idea because the sample beer was not to my liking but he made a recommendation to me and that was just right.
The food was very good and I am always pleased because the food always comes out of the kitchen very quickly. Also to be mentioned are the prices. The beer price is much lower than most all other chain restaurants we frequent in the area. Might be because they make the beer on site.
Great experience and we will be back soon.
Always a solid choice- good food, great beer, nice people!
Food was okay. Husband liked the shrimp and grits.
Good food and excellent beer. A great neighborhood pub!
