Sneaky brew pub with some unique food options you don't normally see. Poutine and white bean dip were great starters and frankly you could go apps all night and not be disappointed. Will venture beyond pizza and burgers next time. Solid beer choices and great diverse mule coctail options.

First time there / Will go back to try other items on food/beer menus
'Barbecue Flight' on menu a good way to sample BBQ choices

They use the "team" approach to service and it left us without refills on drinks. The kitchen needs to work on it's timing. We had eaten about three bites of the appetizer and the main course showed up. Had to put those plates aside to finishes the appetizer. Decent food but maybe a buck or two over priced. Good spot for a date or a group. Just don't have high expectations going in for the service.

We went for Valentine's Day celebration at lunch time. Quiet during my experience. Welcoming hostess, and waiter-Adam G. (knowledgeable and attentive) Menu has good selections. Chicken was ok. But, loved the beef brisket sandwich on brioche. The mac and cheese was a pleasant surprise. Ordered it for tasting. Like the ambiance. Sat by the fireplace, really enjoyed seating. Plan to return.

Dry ribs and improperly prepared dry martini. Spoon bread pretty good as were mussels.

This was my second visit and it was just as delicious as I remembered! My husband and I are both craft beer fans and we came armed with a growler to fill this time. Our one disappointment was that apparently there were no ribs available until about an hour after we ordered. I realize that ribs are a time-consuming and delicate task, but they're my absolute favorite BBQ food and I was really surprised that we ordered at 12 noon and apparently ribs weren't available until closer to 1p

The BBQ brisket end cuts were terrific. This came as part of the BBQ flight dinner. Everyone in our party was very pleased with all the dishes.

Been here several times. Both Rueben and brisket are done right. Their local brews are great and they aren’t too proud to have other good ones on tap. This place is a family favorite when we are in the Evanston area

This place was such a great choice for me and my friends for our early Christmas dinner together! It was so much fun and the food was awesome.

Food and service always excellent. BBQ: some of the best I have had. Wood-fired oven pizzas have that great crust and Mike will entertain with a few in air crust throws. Zef (SP) and team are doing a great job. Evanston needed this restaurant.

I come here A LOT. Horrible service today, manager not interested in feedback, rude attitude. Have your bartender wait tables during football game? It’s a joke. Not coming back.
