I really liked the atmosphere and the windows into the brewery. The food took incredibly long and wasn't anything special. However the staff was friendly and we enjoyed our evening there.

Variety of options to try out in beer. You can see the beer brewing unit in a small room nearby. Will be crowded during evening hours.

The menu has classics but they've been modified to keep you on your toes: it's rough for the indecisive, but great for everyone to order something different and swap, if you're into sharing. The brews are solid as well, but I'd go for the food.

As you would expect the beer selection and quality was excellent. If you're not sure what beer you want, ask for a sample of a couple of the top contenders to make your choice.

Where did the old decor go? Where's the roasted garlic platter? A flat Faricy? The food is now overpriced and mediocre at best with puny portion sizes and zero attention to detail. Take the poutine off the menu because you're not even close. Sad decent here.

We stopped here for a late night snack and enjoyed a pizza and beer. The staff was very nice in helping us pick out a pizza since this was our first time here. We also joined in on some free trivia which was an extra treat.

This is in the heart of Ann Arbor, and a fun place to grab a beer with friends. Don't try to get a table with a group larger than 4 people - especially during football weekends. You will wait forever. Food was good with typical pub style options.

Went here for lunch. Fries were served at room temperature, fish was barely warm. Service was as bad as the food, very slow had to flag waitress to get attention. Overall bad experience for everyone.
