    They require everyone in your party be there before seating you so tell your friends to arrive on time. Staff was impatient and kind of rude, but the general manager seemed super nice and helpful.

    For a place that calls itself a 'Beer Tavern', their tap list is sure underwhelming: Only eight selections, all of which are relatively common.
