“What a surprise!”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

In my experience, most microbreweries either do food or beer well, but not both. This is the exception. Food and beer are both excellent. I'm from Chicago and consider myself a pizza snob and this place is the real deal. It is not deep-dish Chicago style, but the ingredients are great. The beer is also very good, although I only tried the IPA. Service was also excellent.

Definitely give this place a try.

“Nice find!”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

I had seen an occasional ad for this place but had never been there. Was over in the area the other day and decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed! Great selection of local area beers and the food was very good. Nice menu and the seems to be a family friendly place to go. Staff was exceptionally friendly and courteous. Had beer and sandwiches at the bar...both were great. Will definitely be going back here again. Go...you won't be disappointed!

“Love this place!”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Great place to go. Live that it's locally owned and ran. Feels that way too. Family friendly, not too noisy. We've been w the kids, on date night and girls night out. Food is great, beer choices and abundant.

“Excellent pizza and very friendly staff!”
Reviewed 9 December 2011

I was really surprised when I discovered that no one had written a review and Dad & Dudes! I found a lot of local reviews that were positive so tried it out with a friend. It was a cold Friday night and people were waiting to get a seat. I knew it must be good and wasn't disappointed. The pizza was excellent but I cannot remember what it's called. It was the second specialty pizza listed. It had sausage caramelized onions. All their pizzas are made with the spent grain from their brewing operation which is mixed with flour and agave syrup to make a very tasty, slightly chewy crust. I know this because 'Dad' came by and chatted with us for quite awhile, once the crowd thinned out.

It's a really good place to eat, the ambiance is ok but could be bigger on Fridays! The staff was all very nice and while waiting they handed out samples of their yummy jalapeno cheese bread. I'll definitely go back again.
