Really good food and fast, friendly service. The menu is HUGE, so it's difficult to choose when you're really hungry. Highly recommended!

Just had the food delivered. They delivered on time, and the food was great. That is often not the case when you have it as take out. They also have quick pickup if you order ahead. Lots of ample free parking. The staff is always friendly. Wide selection with healthy options.

The only times I dine here is when I'm invited to a gathering or party. The atmosphere is what one would expect from a sports bar brewhouse. There are tables away from the chaos where there is less pressure to demonstrate how much fun is being had by all. The burgers are satisfactory. Appetizers and 'bar food' are tasty. While... More

Had lunch here after a visit to my Doctor. As usual I eat at the bar when I can. I was seated right in front of the draft station and noticed a Brewhouse Brand called Jeremiah Red. I asked for it, and Mathew the bartender, asked if I had ever had it before. A negative response prompted him to pour... More

This is a fun, but loud place to go. It has a very large menu, there's always something I like. It's a good place to have a beer too

Has a great selection of food and their beer is great! Parking is hard to find so it is easier to park down by Target.

If you like a place to go with friends to chat over creative brews and good food choices, then wander in. They are friendly. Our issue, as with the restaurant next door, is with bad acoustics because of such tall ceilings. That, coupled with louder music, more glaring lights does make quieter table discussions difficult at busy times and when... More

The grand kids love this place... great burgers, lava cake, and the root beer is the best. Easy parking and next to a nice shopping center for a movie or just walking around.

Extensive menu, family friendly atmosphere, good food. It also has many choices, that change seasonally, of their own beers. It has interesting pizzas, offered thick or thin crust. Located in a large shopping mall, so parking is sometimes easy but much more difficult on weekends and holidays.
