“Best Place for A Weekend Afternoon and Meeting New Friends”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

I was shopping for furniture at GoodWood and had the pleasure of passing this beer garden on the way to Home Rule... On the way back, we couldn't resist. My friend and I sat down next to a young man reading (always a good sign). We ordered yummy brats grilled just right and tasty brew. It began to rain and we were still dry under the umbrellas. We started talking and laughing altogether and the young man put away his book. We called up another friend to join us! And he sat drinking with our new companion while we stuffed the car with furniture before closing time, and came back for one last cold one...

“Nice”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

This place it's really nice.It has a good patio with comunal tables. And during the summer it's always crowded.
It's a nice place to meet friends and drink.

* Note: A day when everything went wrong. When we arrived it was a very hot night and a few minutes later we were experiencing a "derecho". It was an incredible moment. And we all survived!

“Excellent casual food, lively laid back atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

Warm holiday weekend evening, mostly younger clientele (but not kids). Seating at communal tables. Prompt, helpful, and attentive service. No rushing. Tastes good.

“Totally Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

Found this online when searching for a place to take a mixed group of Americans and visitors from other countries and am VERY disappointed that we chose another location.

Very simple menu with great draft beer and perhaps the best pulled pork 'q' sandwich with 'slaw' I've ever had.

HIGHLY recommended. Only challenge is if it is raining, only about 10 bar stools inside and another 100 or so seats outside.

Food seemed very reasonably priced, but no low cost (or low quality) beer available.

“ok but Hill Country a better bet”
Reviewed 4 November 2011

Staff was great and if we were beer drinkers perhaps would have enjoyed our meal more. I got the pulled pork which was ordinary with no depth of flavor or smokiness. Wife got the brat which she liked, but a little too peppery for me. Did have a nice snap to the casing. Onion rings pretty good but the wife sais they were too greasy. Hill Country not that far away for a much wider selection & tastier que.
