We stopped here right before Christmas and they were pretty busy but the service was very good and the food was great. They have a very large selection of draft beer with many local brews. Highly recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant is always busy for good reason. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The beer list is very extensive and offered many local brews. The servers are very knowledgeable about the beer as well. They have gluten and dairy free options. Very good food too! We will definitely be going back.

Daytime bartender that we had copped on attitude - maybe he was having a bad day, but they should hire actors who can pretend that they are glad you are there.
MASSIVE beer selection - no problem there. Just clean up the server act a bit please.

The one and only downfall to this outstanding restaurant and bar is the fact everyone else loves it too. It's always packed but that said, well worth the wait for a table or spot in the bar. I've been working my way down the menu over the years and there isn't a single entrée I wouldn't recommend. All are fantastic and beautifully plated.
