In addition to being a full-service restaurant and brew pub, Two Brothers Roundhouse also offers banquet space for a variety of get-togethers, large and small as well as a music venue and the Two Brothers Cafe and Beer Bar. Situated in the oldest limestone roundhouse in the US, its 70,000 square foot facility is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. The Two Brothers Roundhouse menu starts you off with an appetizer of chimichurri nachos, Brussels sprouts or beer brezen, just to name a few, and follows that up with favorites such as autumn scallops, goat risotto or duck 'n grits in addition to a wealth of other entrees, burgers and sandwiches.

Passion for beer, a love of food and live entertainment with a decidedly local flair flourish inside the granite walls of the Two Brothers Roundhouse.

Service started out a little slow, are table was shaking so we had to fix it ourselves with some napkins, the turkey burger on special wasn’t really edible but ate some because we were hungry, overall I heard good things about this place but not sure if I would come back for a second time. Two brothers has awesome beer, but the food wasn’t up to par.

Two brothers which is known for their beer, did not have 2 (out of a grouping of 6) of the selections we were hoping to try. Disappointed!

Everything was perfect as the first stop for a Train Pub crawl! As always Two Brothers does not disappoint and a big shout out to our server. I cannot remember his name but we were the lively group in the high top area just off the bar!

My experience at Two Brothers Roundhouse was not what I expected. I made the reservation on Open Table well in advance, and we were seated at a table right near the entrance, on the perimeter of the restaurant. When I asked if we could please have another table further in the restaurant, I was told that those tables were already taken for other reservations. Dirty appetizer plates were next, along with dirty forks for the entrees, my Cajun Chicken Pasta was more like cheese soup with noodles, chicken, and sausage, and my sister's chili was so spicy she could barely eat it. The service was very average at best. I chose this restaurant because of its proximity to the Paramount Theatre , because we were seeing a show afterwards. Next time I will choose another restaurant. Very disappointing.

Good menu and beer. We had a reservation and were seated in a hallway by the front door. A band was unloading equipment the whole time and it was cold. I got the lamb tbone and it had only 8 bites of meat on it for $22. Seemed like a rip off. But it tasted fine and the drinks were good.

It had been over a year since visiting here. Had out of town family in and wanted to show a local site. Glad it was a Tuesday ad it was relatively quiet. Food and service were both better than I recalled which is good. New addition if the distillery added a demention.

Everything about our meal/visit was ok. Service was ok. We ran out of bread, waited... ran out of water, waited... but she was friendly. Rueben was WAY over cooked. Brown 🤢. Salad had no flavor. Spinach dip and chili were good. It was FREEZING in the dining area.

My only criticism is in the price of a Gin & Tonic. $11.00 is high for a cocktail that is hardly the most challenging to mix. Even with house-distilled stuff

Good overall place to eat out with friends.
Nice variety on menu- only most dishes made with a spicy flair- great if you like that sort of thing, but not for everybody - limiting if you don’t. Wine choices limiting- gret plce for a beer though. Highlight for me was the coconut peach salad- really unique and delicious!

I was looking forward to Two Brothers but was absolutely let down. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. I've actually have told others how horrible it was and to never go. Our waitress looked like a mess and shouldn't have been wearing her bike shorts to work. It was dirty under our table. Makes me think how dirty is the kitchen. Our food was disgusting and cold. It seemed liked all precooked food just slapped on a plate. We quickly made our way out of the restaurant to take our business elsewhere. Never again will I go to Two Brothers. Disappointed because my husband and I were just trying to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Hope this restaurant can get it together.

We had an item off of the starter menu and an item off of their entree menu. Both were OK, neither spectacular nor horrible. The service was good. However, when it came time to get the check, we did have to wait for a little bit for her to come pick it up. In fact I had to go to the hostess stand to give her the payment.

We had notified her in the very beginning comet that we were attending a play near by, and would want the check shortly after receiving dinner. However, we had to request the check and wait and wait and wait.

The real downside was that I wanted to try their stout beer. However, they didn't have any to offer.

Cool place, uneven table, great service, food needs work, burger was succulent and well balanced, lasagna had good texture in a chef-boy-r-dee sauce, no parking, valet needs help in courtesy standards, coffee was cold and not appealing to my palate, ice is easy to crunch. You decide.

the place was loud. it was hared to hear what your dinner guest was saying. The service got off to a rocky start but got better as the nite wore on. The food was EXCELLENT! I had the cajun pasta which was so good I wanted to take another serving home with me. My friends had the peach salad and they were very impressed. Fresh peaches were a nice touch. Will be back soon..

Saturday night - great overall for dinner and live music. Nice outdoor seating (in good weather). Valet parking only, due to a large local event nearby - not a long wait, just a little inconvenient getting in/out. Food was very good and service was fine until we closed out our dinner check, after which no one came by to take additional drink orders (as promised). However, walk-up bars are convenient indoors & out, so no big deal.
