Great menu options, mostly upscale comfort foods at a good price point. Something for everyone, and they do have a good kid's menu too! All staff were friendly, professional and kind.

We did the Mother's Day buffet which we hadn't even expected. We decided to try it. We were there at noon and much of the food had dried out as they opened at 10. Our waiter did not even check to clear the table of used plates or freshen beverages.
We will go there again in the future because we usually enjoy the food, brews, and patio.

Made reservations thinking it would be busy for Sunday Brunch but I didn't wait a minute before being seated. Wasn't until an hour later when I saw larger groups come in. Food was very good and service was excellent! By the time I left, there was a short line so would highly recommend making a reservation in advance to avoid long wait times.

This is a really good place to go. The brewed root beer is delicious! Especially the hard root beer! The food has always been delicious and the service is great. It is a noisier place so people must be enjoying themselves. Now they have open table app to book on your phone so can pretty well get in when you want! If you are in Omaha this is a must to visit!!

The server was nice but that wasn’t sufficient to make up for everything else this place was lacking. Drink service was so slow it was almost insulting. Appetizer actually made it before any drinks and even then missing a house brewed beer that took a total of 25 minutes to reach the table. The food came out wrong and the food runner was so incredibly rude when I asked for a plate to scrape the Mayo from my chicken since I can’t eat it. Overall the experience was unwelcoming, slow, and underwhelming. I would not recommend or ever return! Skip this place as there are many other options nearby.

This was our FIRST dining out experience in over a year! Service was extremely good, - friendly, efficient and accommodating - food is really good. We LOVE love their bread pudding, even had it trucked to Lincoln for my daughter's wedding reception. If you like beer, you'll enjoy it.

Our server was amazing and the beers were great. The food was pretty good, although my favorite appetizer (artichoke dip) was this time barely warm and the bread seemed old.

Server brought beer flight with substitute without asking though mentioned the one missing was one wanted most. Beer was okay from 4 tried. No real standouts and should receive more attention.

Server said Tenderloin was 1 large piece though was 2.
Tenderloin was good, very thin with good breading and mayo based sauce. Potatoes needed more cream and/or butter as bit dry.
Fish (cod) was good too though small portion for price.

Kids menu good variety but is a bit pricey and only kids cups and not plates or utensils.

Beer cheese soup ($6) was excellent and added a food and value star.

The food took over an hour to get served. When it arrived everyones food was cold. We didn't say anything because it would have taken longer to get and we were already there for 2.5 hours.

Had a nice time here. We were just a two top and had the bartender serve us. He was pleasant and prompt. The beef roast and pork schnitzel were great! Drinks were reasonably priced.
