    Great cocktails, and tasty pork entrees. Unfortunately most of my smoked pork was a bit dry, but one piece was juicy and amazing. My girlfriend's porterhouse pork chop was thick and perfectly cooked.

    This is a cool place if you crave home- made beer, good food, and have an affinity for the Northwest (like me). Be prepared for some large portions,at least twice as much food as you'd get in Seattle.

    Check out Sunday Brunch. Steak and eggs or an Italian Omelet. It's all great! They are open early so you canbeat the Sunday crowd.

    Scallops and garlic bulbs are a must along with any of their beer. If you have room for dinner after that the fillet or tuna will finish out the night perfectly

    Try the Roasted Garlic Bulb appetizer. The garlic is roasted perfectly and balances well with the bread and goat cheese

    Ask for the mustard sauce with your fries - awesome! My entree was stellar. Ribeye cooked perfectly med/rare with blue cheese scalloped potatoes. Great meal all around.

    We where excited to try this place, but after going we won't be back. The atmosphere is great and the menu items look good with a big variety. Problem is the food is blah.

    Absolutely everything on the menu rocks! My personal favorite is the Huntsman burger! Make sure you order one with the huntsman cheese and a Duckabish Amber Ale.

    For two, try small salad sure each. Then share a pizza, especially BBQ chicken. Wait staff very attentive to clear off dishes and glasses. Pizza very good, oven baked makes great crust.

    Blue cheese tomato soup was good just a touch too much blue cheese which over powered the flavor.

    Wow! We've been coming here for years, and we usually have special requests. And didn't realize until tonight it was such a problem. Maybe we should go spend our money elsewhere.

    Their website, Yelp, Google, etc. says they close at 11pm. This is the third time we’ve tried to beat the clock just to be turned away at 10:15-10:30.

    For a sub $30 ribeye, you can do a lot better. Appetizer, drinks, entrée, sides were all sub-par. DO NOT order a classic gin martini. So many better food options in the area. Waitstaff was terrific.

    Sampler platter. Don't expect real Buffalo wings - they're Asian honey wings - but good. I get the platter as an entree without the Calamari.
