    Nate T was our server; he was very kind, professional and extremely helpful with our orders and drinks. We had clients from out of town so they had lots of questions about the beers and he was very good at answering with descriptions and giving us suggestions. The food was brought out quickly, looked amazing and tasted just as good as it looked!

    We were greeted and seated immediately. Our server Alicia was attentive and helpful. Food was exceptional! Came out of the kitchen hot and fast. Apps were awesome, cheese curds and artichoke dip. The bread that came with the dip was outstanding. Beers were tasty and cold. I especially liked the Flagship IPA and my wife enjoyed the Afterglow white stout. Main dishes were great as well. Key lime dessert was also very tasty. Overall it was a great experience. Kudos to the chef and the whole crew.

    Food was ok. We went to brunch and main roast was undercooked and tough, sausages weren't browned and seemed undercooked. Wasn't impressed with selection, and food like chicken was dried out from steam trays. Sorry just disappointing and biscuits and gravy was spicy and tater tots had cheese sprinkled on them..not typical breakfast potato.

    Food was excellent and so were the beers we sampled. Sat outside on the patio which was very cute. They even had someone there going around to tables with kids and making the balloon animals. When our daughter popped hers, the waiter immediately ran and had another made for her. Overall, great experience!

    Out of items, coke products not available, menu is old and boring. Kind of disappointed that their menu didn’t have much for lunch. Service sucked too. We kept having to ask server for service. Also, prices too high for quality 3 people $100 for lunch. No booze. Schnitzel was good potatoes were mashed cold and dry. Gravy is obviously rationed here.

    Food was really good. Mish mash of thing we shared. Corn dog appetizer, filet mingnon, and bbq wings. Root beer was flat and Valerie our server was missing in action a lot and when we asked for napkins she basically said just use the one you got. Left us without beer for awhile

    We were seated immediately. Server was kind and accommodating. We were a party of 13, and we were comfortably seated. Adults tried the beer selections. We indulged in almost every brew. The only memorable one was the sour. The rest were just okay. For the price, the food was just okay. Disappointing for as much as it cost. My mushroom Swiss burger was served medium rare instead of medium well like I ordered. We were told kitchen was having problems. A new burger was ordered and server said she would deduct it from our bill. She forgot. We had to remind her. Overall, I felt disappointed. Jambalaya my husband ordered was moderately warm. The chicken in the dish was tough. The raspberry coconut chicken another family ordered had minimal coconut. The smashed potatoes were served lukewarm. The veggies with the chicken and pork dishes looked like they were thrown on the plate and not hot. Battered fish was soggy. Sigh.

    It was our anniversary (which we put in our reservation) and they sat us surrounded by families with little kids. Not ideal, just not thought out. My wife loved her dinner. I had the BBQ burger which didn’t have enough BBQ sauce in some spots. But it had a generous amount of bacon so that was nice.

    Having a reservation allowed us to be seated immediately, walk-ins were over an hour wait. Our server was prompt and courteous. Food was as expected-always consistent and very good. We were shocked by how fast the kitchen was able to have our entrees out on such a busy evening. Our server did not rush us and we enjoyed our food and beers.
