“Just Terrible”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

The place is way, way outside of town and it doubles as some sort of real estate office. We asked to sit on the balcony and the tables were covered with the carnage of past patrons. I'd read the reviews but thought that surely the proprietors aren't as bad as I'd read. I was wrong. This place is dirty. We ditched our plans to eat and just ordered beers. My glass had a dead fly crushed into it. We paid and left. BEWARE

I would not go back. Service was poor. The food was worse. The beer was fine and the view was lovely.

“decent beers and OK food”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

My husband and I love trying different beers. The beers here were good but lacked some pizazz. We had beers on 2 different occasions plus ate dinner there one night. I had the stroganoff and he had the Mediterranean pizza. Both were OK but nothing special. Service was decent considering that it was a very busy 4th of July weekend.

“Needs help...”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

We keep trying this place, wanting to like it, to buy local etc. Twice when we went for dinner the cook hadn't shown up, so we had a beer & left. Finally we were able to have dinner on a busy weekend nite, & it was mediocre at best. The bread was dry. The appetizer, which sounded like wonderful stuffed mushrooms, was actually a bunch of sauteed shrooms with basic cheese melted on top ~ & it came late, after our (paltry) dinner salads had already arrived. The roasted vegetable pasta was very bland & the vegetables were definitely not roasted. The new tropical pork dish was tasty, tho you have to love bell peppers. Dessert, a blueberry marscapone dish, was good but was a simple blueberry crisp; we searched but never found any marscapone. Twas a spendy meal that never met, much less exceeded, our expectations.

And the service... our waitperson was nice but confused. A little more training & better communication between wait staff & the kitchen would be a vast improvement.

Diverse array of good beers, tho they've been out of our favorites more than once. Nice enough atmosphere.. tho loud, not cozy.

“Excellent Craft Beers & Bar Food”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Sometimes great beer AND really good food don't always go hand-in-hand. This is the exception (along with Tommyknockers in Idaho Springs, CO). Really great and interesting apps, soups, sandwiches and main courses. This is the second time I've been back and haven't been disappointed at all. Worth the stop AND $5 kids menu.
