This is a very nice place to go to on a date or with friends and family. What really makes it stand out is its friendly staff and excellent food, which stands above almost any other brewpub I have been to. I have tried almost every single item on their menu, and there hasn’t been a dish I did not like. Their beer is also solid, though not spectacular, with perhaps an exception of their Milkshake Stout, which is delicious. They have a decent variety, and they recently have been experimenting with some new styles, such as a pilsener, a dubbel, and a saison (coming at the end of March). Also, if you join their birthday club (free of charge), you get a free meal during your birthday month and a pint glass to take home. Not only a great brewpub, but this is among my favorite restaurants to go out to eat.

This is just an overall very solid brewery. The food is good, the beer is good. They have a really nice outdoor seating area when it is warm. They have live music sometimes and throw a really good St. Paddy’s party though its very crowded. This is one of my favorite breweries in metro Detroit.

I’ve been a mug club member for a number of years. The food is decent, but it’s really about the beer. Over the years, they’ve had at least 5 different brewmasters, but the quality and cleanness of the beer has been very consistent.

Always good food and if you are an IPA fan theirs is quite good. Nice setting and most of the servers are great and will talk beer. Good enough for me to join their mug club.

It’s been over 10 years since the last visit here (yes, it was that bad). I heard that the place had improved and while I would agree with that, I still won’t be in a hurry to go back. The food was OK, the server was great, and the beers (Wit and IPA) were average. The best beer on tap wad the guest tap - Arcadia Starboard Stout.

I noticed right away that my score it higher than the ratings below mine, what boosted my score is the brewpub itself. It really is a great building, and beautiful inside, the food is good too. I live not far from Rochester, and I had been avoiding trying it out for some unknown reason, I finally went last week and I was pleasantly surprised. Drank a Pleasurez Pale Ale and Organic Wit. Also sampled the Wheat, Red, and Milkshake Stout. They were not earth-shattering, but I can’t see why I wouldn’t come back. I brought home a growler of the Pale Ale, and I’ll go fill it up again on a Tues/or Thurs because they run discounts. If you are in the area, sound probably stop in and check it out.

Sunday noon. Not too busy, but a beautiful day, so the outdoor seating was lovely and packed. Inside looked nice too with pool tables, tons of space, and though perhaps not much of a distinguishing character other than the spacial layout, a nice place to be. Service was attentive and well-drilled enough, though they could just as easily have been at Applebee’s. The quality of the food, though an interesting selection, unfortunately also could be found at Applebee’s. Beer was standard brewpub fare, low gravity brews, but a wide variety of them so as far as I’m concerned it meets the need of all. Perhaps they were just in between seasonals though as I see below that they do offer some bigger beers. Quality was varying from very good to average. Fine pricing.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent here. Surely a beautiful day had something to do with it, but still a place I’d love to have close by, and would return to in an instant.

An interesting little brewpub based in a historical old mill. I came here on a Sunday afternoon and got to sit outside, which was very pleasant. The service was great. There were ~10 beers on tap and the ones I tried were quite tasty. The food was ok (the descriptions make the food sound better than it is...I got the Shepherd’s pie which was actually pretty good but my boyfriend got the sesame chicken which was not good at it is hit or miss). A low key, chill kind of atmosphere and good beer to boot. I had a great time here!
