I had finger foods with family at reasonable prices. The building itself has historic value to it. They offer guided brewer tours and tastings, also. Good atmosphere in the downtown area.

They have some unique food combinations. It was very good food and great service. The tables are a little close together though. There was great flavors and fresh tastes.

Just had diner there with my wife. My pulled pork was great but my wife's chick was as tough as shoe leather and her sweet potato fries came to the table cold. If a restaurant is really busy I'll cut them some slack but they...More

As expected, they were busy. Lots of moms getting out of the kitchen. We all just had sandwiches, they were good but not great. The beer on the other hand was very good - the Scottish ale is a must try. Been there many times...More

Stopped in for dinner after walking the boardwalk (about a mile). The place was packed so we were told it would be about 40 minute wait. After 10 minutes we got high boy seats near the bar. They had a number of special beers available...More

Your restaurant came up in a gluten free restaurant search. Do you have a dedicated area for gluten free? If not, can you suggest a restaurant that does? My grandson has really bad celiac and it is difficult to eat out. Doing a beach day trip with him and would love to give him a treat by taking him out to eat. Thanks. Thanks, Susan
