Visited on a Tuesday night when it was surprisingly crowded and noisy. Friendly attentive service. 7 regular, 4 fruit and abou 4 specialty beers available on tap, as well as Wyder’s Pear Cider and Guinness Kaliper. 2 levels. Decent sized bar. Pool table.
I made the mistake of planning my trip to this area by booking my hotel near this brewery. I assumed I would spend the majority of my time here. I came in, ordered a beer for the wife and I. I saw they had an oysters special. The waitress asked if I would like buffalo, garlic butter, or pesto sauce on the oysters. I asked for buffalo. The oysters came out covered in blue cheese and tabasco. Look. I hate blue cheese. I find it repulsive. But nowhere did they say these oysters came covered -- and there were quite literally covered-- in blue cheese. I did my best. I tried to pick off all the blue cheese and eat an oyster. It tasted like the rotting flesh of blue cheese. I then told the waitress I couldn’t eat this because of the blue cheese. She took it back no questions asked.
Here’s where it gets messed up. The waitress brings back 5 oysters. Originally, there were six, minus the one I tried to choke down. I eat one and guess what: it’s warm and watery. The "chef" took the oysters that were covered in blue cheese, washed off the blue cheese, stuck them back in the shell, and sent them back out to me. Not only is that disgusting but that is insulting. It would be one thing if they indicated anywhere that their "buffalo sauce" consisted of covering the oyster in blue cheese. Then I wouldn’t have ordered it. But they didn’t. Instead, they wash the oyster they had already served me so it tasted disgusting. That’s dishonest, not sanitary, and disgusting. We left. I had planned on spending a lot of money at this place. But, nope.
