    Everything is great here! The Oil Change Stout just may be my all time avorite beer! I have to get one every time we visit.

    Get the pretzel twists with spinach dip. It's worth the extra dollar.

    Order anything with a side of sweet potato chips and a cold beer & you're off to a great start.

    If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. Amazing pretzels (get the spinach dip). Skip fries and get the apple sauce. If you love root beer... Do not miss out on theirs.

    It's hard to keep me away from the Cajun pasta! Make sure you order the beer sampler!

    The Green Chili beer—brewed with Anaheim and Serrano peppers—is a favorite among Mizzou students. And since every pint is just $4, you’ll be able to sample plenty of the pub’s more exotic options. Read more

    You can't sit on the patio when there is snow on the ground.

    Flat Branch is by far my favorite place to get pizza. And their pretzels are AWESOME

    Have a Big Chief and a Katy trail pale ale, oh and add onion rings.

    Strawberry ale is amazing, but smoked tuna sandwich is VERY SALTY. Try not to come here during the rush hour (5:30-8:30PM). You will get better attention and service when this place is not busy.

    Order Green Chili Chicken fingers with a side of fries and your favorite brew! You won't be disappointed!!!

    Nachos are amazing and huge! And discounted after 10pm Sunday - Thursday!

    If you can't decide which beer to try you can try any (6) beers as a beer flight for $7.50. I can never decide because they're all good! *Side Note: Esquire rated Flat Branch as a top bar nationally.

    Mike Stayton · August 11, 2013

    Try the beer!

    The buffalo chicken pizza was excellent. unfortunately the red beer I had was not. It wasn't really bad, it was just very bland.

    Green chili beer is really 'interesting' but really they should save their chile for the nachos (hint: put it on the nachos FBBP!)

    Phil Dexter · April 28, 2013

    Great food...when it comes out hot, and I'd be happy to let the server know my complaint. if she ever came to the table.

  • Kent A.

    While the food here is great, you have to at least sample the beer. Going to a brewpub for the food is like going to a whorehouse to hear the piano player!

    The strawberry beer in the summer is awesome but it goes really fast so get it when you can.

    Scott Wendling · April 2, 2013

    Whatever you do, you HAVE to try the 'chokes and cheese dip with some tortilla chips.

    The Vienna Lager is pretty tasty.

    Maurice Tolson Jr · March 8, 2013

    Get the green chili with a side of tomato juice.... Or the nachos with spin dip instead of melted cheese. You're welcome.

    Great place to enjoy a meal while throwing back a few brews. Loved the Honey Wheat beer, & the nachos were delicious! The steak wrap was great & the Garlic Five Cheese pizza melts in your mouth!

    Every time I say I need an oil change, they give me beer. WTF?

    Mmmm green chili chicken fingers with salsa ranch. Late night flat branch is the best with half price pizzas and apps. Great local brewery. No complaints.
