    The Jambalaya was good. The portion was kinda small for the price, but good. If your hungry, don't order it.

    Go for the beer, skip the food. Beer cheese soup is really thin and not much flavor. Burger is average.

    Known as much for their beer as for their food and the atmosphere. Order a Pappy’s Porch Sippin’ Porter to go along with an order of Brewer's Bread, and take an outdoor seat on the back deck.
