    Last month, The Hay Merchant introduced a family-style section to the menu. The pièce de résistance just may be this split down the middle, roasted pig head ($45, feeds 4-6) Read more

    Beer and Blackbird Cajun Meat Pies

    The burger was good, but serving in the wire basket made it impossible to eat by hand!

  • Caffery P.

    Huge beer selection. Constant rotation. Friendly far as I can tell (only been once)

    Caffery Penn · April 1, 2015

    Burgers are off the chain. Pork ears are good but a little too sweet- definitely share them

    Love this place laid back. Great happy hour! Try the PB&J wings different, but good.

    William Wood · March 4, 2015

    Huge beer selection. Sierra Nevada Ovila Quad is good, the Stone Coffee Milk Stout w/vanilla is better.

    Burgers were gigantic, but the pretzel bun made it worth the mess. The bacon is a must. This is a great place to go & learn about beer. Our waiter took us back to the 18th century in a history lesson!

    Husker fans Chris puts the game on every Saturday and ask for the Runzas. Specially made for game day.

    Incredible beer selection. Excellent chicken tenders and wings.

    John Dabkowski · August 29, 2014

    Excellent tap list. Excellent rotation. Bartenders will discuss the beer if you have a clue and tolerate you if you don't.

    Had their pork sticky buns and now I crave them all the time! So freaking good!! Order a golden monkey beer too.

    Steak night on Tuesdays is a great excuse to drink during the week.

    Get the Goetta if your very hungry, the Katsudon for crispy pork cutlet breakfast dish but be sure to end up with some French toast at the end.

    The new chicken parm sandwich is awesome, but it's a lot of food.

    The Cease and Desist burger is a must try. Their beer selection continues to have some nice variety, although it's gotten a bit stale in places.

    Get an extra bag of pig ears to take home. They're a great midnight snack right out of the fridge.

    Andrew Douglass · August 7, 2014
  • Scott F.

    The gumbo is good, but it needs Tabasco. The biscuit with it is great.

    Group of 6= stay away. Bat tender shouted at us for trying to combine two tables. There is a wrong way and a right way to do things. I think the owner would like to know.
