Explorium was a great experience! Jon was an absolute delight of a waiter. The cheese curds were delicious. My husband had “the Bomb” burger, which he said was a great

It was trivia night and it was quite busy. We did not play trivia. We just enjoyed the beer and food. Our party of 6 was very pleased.

OMG the pint of bacon was incredible! All of the food was delicious, and well worth the money. The flavored beers were delicious, and at $2 for 4 oz. it was easy to sample different flavors. It was a wonderful place to celebrate my birthday, and I will definitely be back!

We waited an hour and 45 minutes for our entrées to be delivered at the table. We watched as new groups came in, placed their orders receive their food and finished well before our food came.

I ordered a cocktail and had to return it twice before I gave up because it was not what I ordered. Our server told us It was was what the gun produced and he had put in the correct drink.

In addition when our food came there were several issues with it. The most egregious was the fact that there was hair in my soup. The manager offered me a cocktail which I refused then said she would refund the cost of my dinner. My husband’s burger was well done and the bun was burned barely edible.

We had high hopes but will not return.

Beer is consistently great and there are a few sure thing items that are always great-chop salad, the salmon salad and the truffle frites. However my son in law ordered the wings and they were undercooked. We did let our waiter know though and he was very nice about it and got my son in law new wings right away.

No problem getting seated by the hostess as we had a reservation. However, we sat at the table for 15 minutes without a waitress coming to take our order. Everyone around us received their food but nobody checked on us. Asked the hostess for a server but were ignored, so we left. Very disappointed to be treated this way with a reservation for Mother’s Day.

Not really satisfied with the meatloaf I had. The bbq sauce on it was overwhelming strong. I notified the waiter it was my companions birthday before she arrived. He said he would do something nice. He never even acknowledged it. Long time before I go again

I have been here once before and was excited to return. This time though the food was average and was not as good as I remember especially for the price. The service was great though.

It may be awhile until I return.

Our server was amazing, food was a tad pricey for the serving size . Music was a little loud for a Friday night crowd and was hard to hear what our friends were saying . If you are just drinking the tall tables are fine but for eating, take the low table for more room.

High top table was no wider than a plank far to narrow to eat at Ordered an old fashioned and vodka lemonade both drinks were very weak Food was adequate (crusted salmon and skillet cod ) but like drinks quality and quantity did not match price
