    Smoked pork has fantastic smokes flavor! My friend had the smoked rubin and said it was love on rye. The service was fast even at noon on a holiday weekend when it was packed!

    Warm Mediterranean: Marinated & sautéed London broil w artichokes, black olives & fresh bell peppers in balsamic herbed vinaigrette over romaine greens topped with feta cheese. Best steak salad in TC.

    Good in-house brewed beers; best barkeeps in TC in Kathy and Marco. Stuffed mushroom caps are must-have. Buffalo-style wings are the best outside of, um, Buffalo. Mmm.

    Reaffirmed (for the umpteenth time): the best Buffalo-style wings you'll find outside of Buffalo, period. Get a couple dozen!

    Beer is is good enough...but if you like wine and even are okay with cheap wine, make sure you ask for a sample first....I think they bought the cheapest of bueno.

    Having retired the pairing of the open face meatloaf sandwich and Red 8 Ale here I can highly recommend it. Try it. Amazing!

    Cool place. Good craft beer. Fantastic smoked meats. And one of the best team of bartenders I have ever met.

    The Red 8 Ale is spot on for a red. Slightly sweet, very drinkable. They serve in 18-oz pints!

    Try the cheddar ale soup and any of their great sandwiches. The Peninsula Pale Ale & Belgian Whitecap draft beers are a great way to enjoy happy hour (or lunch on the weekend) Read more

    Red eight ale is great. Oatmeal stout has good flavor but seemed a touch thin. Service was friendly and responsive.

    Had the cheddar ale soup and the cheddar burger. Both were delish! Sweet potato was good but needed more butter and spice.

    If you're in the mood for a steak, the 10 oz chargrilled sirloin. Goes great with a cold belgian whitecap.

    The ribs leave A LOT to be desired. NO smoke ring. Try the pulled pork sandwich, better than a punch in the junk.

    Very put off by the fact that a 2 person party "was not allowed" to sit in a booth, as "they are reserved for parties of 4 only." Wtf??? Really?! So much for keeping the customer happy.

    My boyfriend and I had the Mac n Cheese and Asian salad... Horrible! Mac and cheese had no flavor and my "toasted" almonds were burnt. There were too many to pick out. The food is over priced.
