    Not sure what to get? Try a 5oz glass of different beers. They are all pretty amazing and it saves the cost of a full pint if you didn't particularly care for one of the beers you tried.

    Good beer. Good music (juke-ah box)... Tip: When high off someone's reefer that had Percocet or something in it ... Armed with a knife ... Bathroom = Suicide, outside leads to nap on the picnic table.

    By far the best craft beer selection in the area. Great service and atmosphere to boot! They even have occasional, rare beers available. Great spot.

    The Slammin Salmon Salad was perfect! A little sweet, a little hot and a lot of healthy!

    The fat kid style burger is outrageous. So good but should share with someone because it's a buttload of food.

    The onion rings are good. The chicken wings are meh. The hamburgers are so so. The craft beer selection is great. This is a bar; come here to drink but not so much for food

    Yeah... Apparently if you have to specify you want the bacon if you order a turkey club wrap. Makes no sense b/c w/out bacon, it's not a club :-/

    It's not a full night unless you've eaten at least 1 wing burger, drank out of at least 3 taps and played shuffle puck. Don't boot on the floor...
