    Went there on the advice of my nephew and had an excellent experience. The beers were very good with a large list of options to choose from. The food was better then I was prepared for, definitely not your typical "bar food". Good appetizers and great sandwiches. The place was very lively, which I also enjoyesd

    Staff, food, service and ambiance were all superb. Beer selection was excellent, food was great. Only gripe would be seating...chairs were VERY uncomfortable, lack of 'low' tables vs. high-tops. Made it hard to enjoy the night.

    To begin with, I would like to say that the waitstaff, food/beer and ambiance are all good at this restaurant/brewery. I have been here previously and had a nice experience. However, this past visit I was treated so unnecessarily rudely by the hostess that I have to give a 1 star rating. We came to the restaurant at 4:30 when it was 50% full and therefore asked our waiter if we could move one table over from where our hostess sat us (5 inches from a table of other patrons; the waiter had no issue accommodating), at which point the hostess came out and yelled at my wife and I and accused us of moving tables on our own (which wouldnt have mattered anyway bc there were so many empty tables; she called me a liar to my face). Its a shame that one terrible employee could lose a set of customers for life and cause a hostile, poor experience.
