Located in the Hampton Inn right by the Rt9 Speen st intersection. You can zip right past this place and never notice. Basic hotel bar, oval bar, 1/2 dozen or so TVís throughout. Sperate dining area and a game room with a couple pool tables. Mirrored wall on one end to make it seem bigger(I guess). Mix of tables and booths for dining or larger groups. Beer on my visit were
Bartenders still need some training on the beer though. You can see brewing equiptment from the bar. Dan & compnay have been making good ground on improving the beer. The doublebock was very tasty when I was there. Food hasnít impressed me when Ive had it. Maybe itís my own bias, but it still is very hotel like. One time it come s out good, next time it doesnít. I hope to hear about continued improvement of the beer. Iíll go elsewhere to eat in the area.
