    We where excited to try this place, but after going we won't be back. The atmosphere is great and the menu items look good with a big variety. Problem is the food is blah.

    Blue cheese tomato soup was good just a touch too much blue cheese which over powered the flavor.

    For a sub $30 ribeye, you can do a lot better. Appetizer, drinks, entrée, sides were all sub-par. DO NOT order a classic gin martini. So many better food options in the area. Waitstaff was terrific.

    Great cocktails, and tasty pork entrees. Unfortunately most of my smoked pork was a bit dry, but one piece was juicy and amazing. My girlfriend's porterhouse pork chop was thick and perfectly cooked.

    Scallops and garlic bulbs are a must along with any of their beer. If you have room for dinner after that the fillet or tuna will finish out the night perfectly

    This is a cool place if you crave home- made beer, good food, and have an affinity for the Northwest (like me). Be prepared for some large portions,at least twice as much food as you'd get in Seattle.

    For two, try small salad sure each. Then share a pizza, especially BBQ chicken. Wait staff very attentive to clear off dishes and glasses. Pizza very good, oven baked makes great crust.
