    This place has the largest beer selection in town. Live music often so it's loud up front.

  • Jesse H.

    This is real deal Southern, Cajun, and creole cooking. Give the hoppin' John a shot.

    Regulars rave about the sweet potato fries and the chipotle aioli, which may or may not go well with gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, and the many other Cajun delights Read more

    With hundreds of beers on tap, this place is a great stop. On top of that, they have the BEST creole food around. Don't miss the Gumbolaya, a combination of Gumbo and Jumbalaya and a Guiness float!

    Dave Palmer · November 17, 2013

    Vegetarian? get this: Veggie sandwich in wrap form, with artichoke hearts and hummus.

    The catfish isn't fishy at all! Great for people that dislike fish~

    Please order the Gumbolaya. This dish is INCREDIBLE!!

    I highly recommend the Ahi Tuna Tacos. They probably won't fill you (only two tacos), but you'll be satisfied with your meal.

    Stay with beer, drinks lack the fun part: alcohol. Dont miss the artichoke dip.

    The Irish Snakebite was really good!

    Great selection of beer! You can get anything from a really hoppy IPA to a dark stout. Plus the Cajun style food is amazing. Try the po-boy and you won't be disappointed!

    Great beer selection, and appetizers are good too. I had the garlic burger and it was nothing special.

    Amazing place to eat and listen to live music. They are a brewery but you certainly do not need to drink to enjoy this amazing eatery. Their Pizzas are amazing!

    Jordan Maddocks · May 21, 2012

    They now have Fresca

    If you're craving a beer straight from the streets of Munich, get the Spaten good!

    This deal doesn't work here.... Apparently only in Wisconsin.

    Loved the sweet potato fries with the spicy aioli and the balsamic dressing (which was unique) but especially the Ahi Tuna Tacos. The seared tuna was fresher here than at Market Street.

    Jessica Luckert · February 8, 2012

    Say no to jambalaya and get the GUMBALAYA!!

    SNOCRU · January 18, 2012
  • Matt A.

    Not only the best beer selection in town, but also the best (maybe the only) cajon-themed restaurant. Beer is epic, but food is worth a visit as well.

    Not in a beer mood tonight? Try the Hurricane: light and dark rum mixed with fruit juices. It also pairs nicely with the Fettuccine Kileene. Read more

    Their parking lot is usually packed and hard to turn around in. Park on the street and be sure to feed the meter or park across or down the street.

    Scott Fullen · March 23, 2011

    The 50/50 sweet potato fries and the chipotle hummus are both delicious!

    The crawfish etouffee is amazing

    Eric Johnson · February 19, 2011

    Try the crawfish étouffée. It's good. It's not that spicy though.
