    Shrimp on a pizza sounds strange but the Mediterranean pizza tasted great. Pairs well w IMOS stout.

    Small, but really good, beer list. 6 beers on tap, all brewed on site. Tonight's list included an IPA, rye pale ale, dunkel, doppelbock, red, and black IPA. Worth coming for.

    Try the Wraps - Don't remember what it was called but it was today's special and it was delicious. (via @Foodspotting)

    Diverse bottle selection, but try the house brewed lagers. Especially the Helles & Doppelbock.

    I'm wary of anywhere that tries to upsell their menu. The IPA is good but generic. This is one of those places that feels like they care more about selling expensive steaks than the craft of beer.

    Southern Fried Chicken... Must try ! ☺️

    Tried the Abbey and the Helles, both great beers. Probably can't go wrong with any of them.

    Good beer! Good food. They will accommodate large parties as well- we had 30 from a conference at the Marquis, they found us space on a few days' notice.

    Crazy slow service so try to order everything at once

    Brisket Burger yummy and unique. Fried cheesecake desert is a must. And of course the Max Red beer as well as The Gremlin Porter beer were just perfect.
    Judy Erps · November 8, 2014
  • Terence C.
    Def go with the ribs. They're a little dry and overdone to my standards but surprisingly good quality and flavor for Atlanta and a brewery with good beers. Nice smokey flavor without too much sauce

    Get the Demon - a good trippel.

    Brew Master John Roberts loves beer, and loves for you to try his beer. We say you should head over and give the Hopsplosion a whirl. And then maybe the Max Red.

    Very nice steak, good beer and astonishing atmosphere!

    The burger with bacon was very Yummie! I'm not a beer drinker, smells like malt liquor. But for beer drinkers! Great place!! Good food too!

    $20 for a double jack and coke. That says everything, typical downtown atlanta tourist trap.

  • Katie W.
    Southern fried chicken is great!!! Has a sweet first bite and a spicy after bite. Corn mashed potatoes and collards made for an excellent pair.

    The beers change but if you can catch the Gimme Chocolate Bock, it's great.

    Hit the bar with Scott. He knows his brews and is a great guy! Made it worth getting lost in the cold..haha

    The pits. I've lived Downtown right in neighborhood longer than they've been open and have given ML so many chances and it always sucks. Food, service terrible. Beer is acceptable.

    Everything we've had is amazing, but get the Caesar salad with your meal. Delish!!

    The transition (Belgian style pale ale) is fantastic! More Belgian than Pale Ale which for my palate is a good thing.

    Can't beat fresh beer and this stuff is usually on the money. Great oasis of a back patio

    Food is good and tasty, get extra breadcrumbs on the mac & cheese. Be prepared for a long lunch hour as nothing seems to be quick there.

    Great service even on super busy weekend .
