    I love knowing I can always get my favorites, but check their specials menu anyway for great new things to try. And ask about their burger of the week! Here's the one I just had.

    Had some creole salmon when I was here that was on special, as well as fried yucca. Both delicious! My friend had a pepp. pizza burger (also a special) that he said was also delicious. I will be back.

    The Jambalaya is fantastic. Gotten get it on rice. The Mac and cheese with chicken is wonderful. If you see it on the menu, you must have the butternut squash soup. (Seasonal offer)

    Everything is amazing, but these are my favorites: egg rolls. Jambalaya over penne. Steak bomb sandwich. And naturally the beer.

    60 Minute or the 90 Minute? Always a tough decision. Try the Alehouse 75! It's everything you love about each mixed together. Can't go wrong with this one.

    Not sure what beer to get? Get the sample tray, which comes with six different 4-oz. portions of what they currently have on tap. Ask the staff, they will help you out!

    Not a good vegetarian selection. Eat before you come. Basically not so good hummus, pizza, one sandwich. Gluten free menu (limited, but hey- they have one)! Good beer and good waitstaff.

    For all the celiacs out there, try tweasonale, their new gluten free beer! It's a great change of pace for sorghum based beermaking...

    One of my gave places in this are, and like every new dish I try. However, we weren't big fans of the new bread pudding. It was more like cake than the warm drizzly mess it should be!

    Try an aged World Wide Stout! My favorite! Or, when they have World Wide and 120 Min, ask for a Heaven & Hell.
