    What a party! Had to attend the 7th birthday party for our favorite brewery. We were not disappointed! Reservation request was met. Good food, excellent staff, great beer!

    My husband had the Mac’n Cheese with the pulled pork. It had a bite to it, he loved it and said he would definitely get it again. I had the turkey wrap (again) and as always it was phenomenal. I like fruit in my wrap and in addition to the bacon, lettuce, and tomato it had VERY thin sliced sticks of Granny Smith apple. So good! Service was awesome, got there early, was seated right away. We’ll be back!

    Sat on the back patio in the first nice weather we had of the year. Food was great, and always so were the beers. The waiter was great as well. I have never had a bad meal here.

    My husband and I came here for a date night and it was okay. Food was decent but the server was not the best. My husband sat his cup down on the table and the bottom of the cup broke, he did not slam it down but still it broke which was odd to us. I tried getting the servers attention many times but she would not come to our table. She checked on the tables next to us but not ours. When she finally came to us amd we told her what happened she questioned us like it broke on purpose. I am a server so I understand many things but this was not a good experience and we will probably not be back and cannot recommend this place to others.

    We dined here following the trip on the SS Badger from WI. Our reservation was at 8 pm. We were promptly seated. The restaurant was full, but not overly loud. Server took our orders for beers and pretzel appetizer. We had the cheeseburger, truffle fries, mac and cheese with pulled pork w/ bbq sauce on the side. All the food and beer were delicious. We would definitely go back. Outstanding service, from the moment we walked in the door.

    We waited for 20 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order - the waitress blamed a shift change. I tried making a joke about it but was treated as if I was just a huge inconvenience. I had two kids with me - thinking I wasn’t exactly their pick of customer. However, fantastic food (the jalapeño popper pizza is the best pie I’ve ever had!), the pumpkin beer was so AWESOME I brought home a 6-pack to St. Louis, and they were top notch in dealing with my daughter’s food allergies. Bonus - they were following all safety measures during Covid and we felt completely safe!

    Our server, Sarah, was very good. We were here mostly to try the beer on a nice Fall afternoon. I tried both of the IPAs on the menu and unfortunately, did not like either one. Everyone has different tastes in beers so while this particular experience was not great for me, the other people I was with enjoyed their beer so I would say give it a try!

    Excellent beverages! Pizza was phenomenal and so was everything else. Outdoor seating was very pleasant. Several favorites were unavailable....but that’s understandable with the current times and COVID-19. Server was extremely busy and with current staffing issues everywhere, we appreciated her service. Great night out.

    Sorry. I know these are strange (COVID) times, but we waited over an hour for the ‘famous’ shrimp tacos and when they finally arrived they were a plate of cold shrimp sprinkled with paprika, and 5-1oz plastic cups of salsa, sour cream, feta, guacamole and something else forgettable.

    I made reservations for inside seating. When we arrived, we were taken to outdoor seating. I asked why and was told there were no tables inside for 6 people. I’m not sure why my reservation was confirmed, then not honored. It was very windy and not enjoyable to dine outside.

    Hair in food, had to ask for a waiter after waiting 15 minutes of being ignored, made a reservation but was sat in the parking lot/loading dock picnic table section of their add-on seating vs their nice renovated more formal patio area, had to get our own high chairs after asking twice and being ignored, it was just a big disappointment.
