We had drinks and dinner here twice this trip. Both evenings were nice. Music and drinks were really enjoyable and we had delicious food both evenings. Artichoke hearts appetizer was super.

Brewing Company menu, great house wine. Dog-friendly patio, harbor views. We had truffle fries and fish/chips. Great, easy find!

This is one of our favorite places to outside and enjoy the weather, food and beer. Yesterday I had the beer flight with calamari. The beer flight was interesting with really different taste of beers. The calamari was lightly battered but I think for $13.50 they should put more in the basket. Overall we had a nice visit. 9/27/15.

My hubby is a beer connoisseur, and we've become fans of the brewing co./awesome restaurant combo. The view here is breathtaking - don't waste your time sitting inside. My husband liked his beer, and I had a salad that was just kind of "ehh." It didn't change my life or anything. Then I was totally grossed out after I took... More

Staff very friendly and helpful my wife ordered the fish and chips on the first night and although she had eaten half of them when she said they were rubbery they changed them. We were there...

Went there with a friend for a burger and a beer. Both were very good and the service was very friendly. I would go back again.

The restaurant had a nice view of the water. The food was pretty good. My husband enjoyed his fish tacos, but I didn't care for the breading on my fish and chips, good taste though. Happy hour was pretty decent but service was slow and it wasn't that busy in the bar. We wouldn't say no to going here again,... More

Enjoyed our morning meals here. Know that if you visit on a Sunday morning that it fills up fast! Might have a wait. Wait staff is attentive. Food was fresh, good. Outdoor seating was comfy.
