Nice, quiet, cozy restaurant. Great for intimate dinner or smaller group chill-out. Great food and service.

Not too many fancy things on the menu at the Onion Pub, but what they do have, they do welll.

We met some friends for dinner there and had a nice time. I had the salmon for $16 and although it does not come with a salad, it came with a side of rice and carrots. It was a delicious lower calorie choice. They also serve other entrees, pizza, sandwiches, and salads as well as brewing their own beer.

Our server, Shelby, was very good.

A rather large building housing a separate pub and restaurant. I wouldn't go for the food, as it is just average. The on site brewery is the reason to make this a destination.

The name would lead you to believe it’s all about the brew. The brew is important but what makes it the complete experience is the atmosphere combined with amazing dishes cooked to perfection. The most notable and easiest to destroy is the calamari platter. Who has gone to a restaurant looking for tasty calamari only to have it come out and be chewier than the gum you just threw away? Not here! It was cooked absolutely perfect. The spicy shrimp appetizer was amazing. The fish and chips were cooked perfect and complemented with an awesome slaw. Everything was cooked fast and timed to lead into the next item we ordered. Hats off to the waitstaff as that’s all about them. This was my family’s first time here and will not be the last.

I was here twice in four weeks. I'll be reviewing for both visits.
First time came here with wife, daughter and bunch of 20something friends. Busy. Great beer selection. I had the Anti Venom Beer. Great. The kids all had flights of beers which they all enjoyed. Wife had glass of wine. Had the Jumbo Pretzel, Stuffed Pickles and Onion Petals for starters. Delish. Wife and I had the Fire Roasted Artichoke Pizza. Great. They only have four signature pizzas. Rest were burgers, Pasta a La Vodka, Bruschetta Chicken, Grilled Fish Tacos and Brewmaster Panini. All were said to be fantastic.
Second time brought a buddy of mine here for lunch. He never heard of it. Had a couple of Anti Venoms. I had the Signature Onion Pub Burger. He had the Godfather. Huge Burgers. Really good. Servers were great both times. Décor is very nice. Prices not that bad.
