    The vegetables juicy Lucy is really good. Splitting with someone makes the perfect portion

    Popular neighborhood beer pub ("gastropub"). Great selection of draught beers, pub grub. The game burger and Angus cheeseburger are standard favorites.

    Kind of loud! Not a lot of veg options, but the beer list more than makes up for it.

    Well thought out menu and a beer and whiskey menu that is unrivaled. Make a reservation if you can because weekends are exceptionally busy.

    Their pumpkin ale is the best I've ever had. In fact, their selection is pretty impressive overall.

    The amazing amount of beers on tap is wonderful. This in combination with quality food makes it even greater. Try the pretzel, any of the steaks and have the gingerbread as dessert. Will be back soon.

    The elk loin was petite, with no side. I would pick something else, it felt like an appetizer.......

    No parties bigger than 10?! They actually suggested I sit alone at another table and wait for more people in our party to show up. Boourns.
