    So - not really a brewery, no in-house beers. Abita beers since apparently they bought the place.

    The best Bloody Mary I've ever had! Just the right amount of salt and spice -- the secret is the pickled green beans!

    The service is horrible. It took 2 hours to bring out the food and when it came out it had hair in it. Not only would I not recommend this place to anyone, I would strongly advise against it.

    DO NOT take a woman here. The bartenders run a scam on women who stick up for another woman who is in on the scam.
