    This was my first time here and everything was incredible. I recommend the fried pickles, Ale & Cheese soup, the B.A.R., whiskey BBQ chicken & the s'mores cheesecake. The beer list is great too.
  • Abhishek C.
    The bottled beer menu here is separated by country of origin, and extensive so ask the staff for farmhouse yeast and wild ale options you shouldn't miss. Freshcraft almost always has sour beer on tap

    Pretty good beer list. Ambiance is a little fancy, food is good. Owned by Iowa guys and is a Hawkeye game watch location! Try the garlic chili wings and the Iowa style tenderloin sandwich!!

    Some of the small plates are still substantial enough to have as the majority of a meal - add a small soup and some drinks and you're good to go! I'm not a gigantic eater but I was super full!!

    Fried pickles. You must get the cornmeal dusted fried pickles. Plenty of excellent beers on tap. Order a 10oz pour of any 16oz beer if you want to try a few different ones.

    On top of the awesome beer selection, this place has one of the best, most affordable menus around. If you're on the fence, give them a shot during restaurant week.

    I enjoy the food but the beer selection is really top notch here. If Will is behind the bar, make sure you talk to him. He knows his beer and he cares.
