I made a reservation for Saturday, May 8 at 6:45pm for 3 persons. I had decided to try MGCB again after not returning after another poor experience over a year ago. Upon arrival we were "greeted" my a young woman / hostess who had virtually no personality...not a great job match for her! She told me that our table in the back was being used by the chefs and that she would tell them to move since we were ready to be seated. In a few minutes she took us to the table right next to the restrooms and kitchen doors...I told her it had not been cleaned after the staff had moved and she said she would clean it. When she returned I asked for another table close to the front of the restaurant since I had made a reservation and did not want to be so far back. She then said that they were preparing for Mother's Day Brunch (the next day) so could not seat us near the front (???). She then took us to the "side" room and gave us a corner table - a little better than the small original table but extremely noisy with families with children whose parents were basically letting them run wild around the entire dining room.
While we were waiting to have our orders taken at the new table, another family was seated beside us. A waiter came to them and took their order even though we had been there prior to them. He then came over to us and said he was sorry and that he could take our drink orders. We told him we were ready to order since we had already been waiting a while. However, his response was..."your waitress is busy so I can only help her out." He must have seen our displeasure because he did go ahead and took our full order for food and drinks.
When food arrived 2 of our 3 orders were fine. The Chicken Tacos meat was very over cooked and dry; the shrimp tacos and the fish & chips were fine. But the overall value for experience AND food were very poor - with tip almost $75.00.

We decided to hit the brewery for an early Mother's Day celebration. This was our first time visiting and we were not disappointed. Delicious food and awesome beer selection! Our service was also great. I would highly recommend.

Very nice place and decent food. My daughter ordered the steak and didn’t love the chimichurri. The chef came out to talk with us. My daughter is a teen and doesn’t like to make a fuss and felt embarrassed so she didn’t want anything else. The chef was extremely gracious and gave her a dessert to go. Our waitress was great. We will definitely be back!

As a frequent visitor to Mt Gretna Brewery (but somewhat curtailed during COVID 19), I look forward to a neighborly, friendly brewery...the specialized burgers have always been outstanding, and, with the addition of a new chef, I believe the variety of other offerings will be of outstanding improvement...Ironmaster Stout and Big Red Amber are my personal favorites among many excellent and intriguing brews...enjoy!

They seemed understaffed which made it hard for us to get the attention of our server. She was very nice and I have nothing bad to say about her. The food took forever to come out. We ordered an appetizer that came out with all of our food. That was burnt and cold when we got it. Once our food FINALLY was brought out the pizza was undercooked, the fish and chips was so small (both worth the money) and my pretzel charcuterie board was terrible. The charcuterie board pretzel was cold (why would a soft pretzel ever be served cold?!?!), the bleu cheese was mushed and thrown all over the plate, the 2 tiny pieces of Brie were all brine. I did ask about the pretzel being cold as soon as it came out but was told that’s how they serve it. Which I think was just an answer to shut me up. I ended up telling them to take it back and didn’t eat. I will NEVER be back and I will NEVER suggest this place to anyone!!!

Service was horrible our waitress kept forgetting about us and I had a local flavor coupon that I'm pretty sure she never took off our bill. I friend picked up the tab and I didn't know how much it was until we left and when I added everything up when I got home she definitely did not deduct my $30 local flavor. Not happy!

Really good but the menu was a little small. All the food was very good, but it felt like it was missing that one small thing to kick it up a notch. We had the tatchos, tater tots instead of the traditional nachos. They were very good, generous toppings but they needed some type of brisket or pulled pork to bring them up. We also had the meat pizza which was also very god but it needed something to bring it up a notch. Beer was awesome and we like the atmosphere and will definitely keep supporting this local restaurant

Nice selection of beers - the service was very good & our waiter was very attentive & knowledgeable. The menu however was quite limited - basically burgers, pizza or mac & cheese. The quality of the food was good (except the bottom of the pizza was black in spots) but definitely overpriced. I think $16 for a burger & fries is a bit much no matter how good the beer is.

We found this place on Open table when we were not able to go to Troegs since their wait time was almost 3 hours. We had difficulty finding parking since there was a movie night event going on. We are from out of town so we didn't know. We parked on one of the residential streets and went in. The hostess was friendly and allowed us to sit inside. Unfortunately we waited almost an hour for our food due to the kitchen being bottle necked. Our waiter kept checking in on us and apologizing for the delay. When we got our food, we had the corner burger and the kielbasa cheese steak. My husband enjoyed his meal and I enjoyed mine. Our waiter even comped us for one of our drinks due to the long wait time. So we decided to give him a generous tip! Service was good and friendly, maybe we'd try to come during a not so busy time.
