“Best Burger in Brandon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We tried the Stein and Vein after looking up online for a new place in Brandon for a Friday night date. Being over 50 we are a little picky. The reviews were great so we gave it a chance. We have been back 3 times in the last 2 months and recommend it to everyone. Menu is small but the burgers are the best. The service is great but when busy we waited with empty glasses a bit longer than we should have. However, they are always nice and answered any question we have over the menu with a smile. We have tried the burgers and the chicken taco's. But we go back for the burgers. You seat yourself and I recommend you do not sit near the kitchen window for food pick up. They keep the bus cart right there and its loud when they throw the dirty dishes in the bus tub. Overall its a nice place for a easy meal with friends or family. Relaxed atmosphere, great food and really nice staff.

“Great beer, limited menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

A real gem for beer lovers with a great selection of interesting and very varied beers (and cider) which will surely have something for everyone no matter what sort of beer they like.
Not very big and clearly popular; we arrived at 5.30 on Friday and had to stand and wait for 20 minutes to get a table. When we did get to eat the food was good but the menu choice is pretty limited, maybe they don't have the kitchen space to do more. Staff were really good, knowledgable about the beers they serve and friendly.

“Neighborhood Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

This small pub with the generic sign is buried in a non-descript strip mall -- just a mile from our home, but we never would have given it a second look were it not for the recommendation of a friend.

So, we tried it -- and were so glad we did!

The ambience is nice -- dark wood, wine bins, with a chalk board listing the wines and beers du jour above the generous bar. There are about 10 tables along the other side of the space. The S & V offers a large selection of craft beers, many of them local, and a nice selection of wine from mostly small, independent vintners.

The food is a unique twist on pub food. Instead of chicken wings, they have "pig wings" -- fried pork shank with several sauce choices; we tried the "Latin lime" sauce -- garlicky and yummy. They offer tots in several forms instead of fries. (Also delicious!) My husband tried tuna tanaki tacos, which he thoroughly enjoyed. The S & V has several interesting burgers -- the one stuffed with PBJ was the most intriguing! Our server told us that the sandwich menu choices are rotated frequently.

Prices for both food and beverages are reasonable. Our server was attentive and efficient.

We will definitely be back -- it might be our new neighborhood hangout!

Great bar food, wonderful beer selection, and cozy. A great place for Brandon. We need more independent places like this.

“Friendly place with very, very good food and beers, thanks Josh!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

Four of us went recently for lunch, after talking about going for about a year. Very knowledgeable and friendly bartender, biermeister, Josh. Food was unusual, pig wings! And loaded Tater Tots! The 3 different beer/ales that we tried were varied and very good. Not a large place, nor prepossessing from the outside, but quite nice inside. Will definitely return when in town.
