The staff here made us feel at home, even though we were from out of town. Had very decent pizzas and some good beer. Great, friendly atmosphere and low key.

Dropped in for a quick bite, great selection of beer on tap from all over the USA with knowledable staff to make recommendations. Had the beef sandwich and was fantastic, juicy roast beef with mustard and their homemade dipping sauce! Great value as well

This is the place to go if you want to drink beer and have a great variety of it. Limited menu of finger food and sandwiches. My Turkey club melt was OK, the shoe string fries were lukewarm. Service was average.
