This is one of the few brewpub restaurants Iíve been to which caters to quality food lovers as much as craft beer lovers. The Duck 2 Ways was an exquisite dinner, just like the crab and cream cheese ravioli. The atmosphere is upscale and maybe a little too dark for my liking, but the open room setup somehow made it possible for everyone to feel comfortable, which is always appreciated. Our waiter was perhaps a newcomer to the trade and was nothing more than polite, but Dennis, the owner, came to join us after the meal and letís just say he knows how to take care of his customers! There were 5 beers on tap that day, all of which were very competently brewed, including a beautiful Vienna, which is rather rare in North America. Some bottle-conditioned beers are available for on-site consumption if you ask for them, but I would have preferred that list to be advertised as we were only made aware of it after our meal. Overall, this is a brewpub very much in the vein and quality of Iron Hill (DE), Trou du Diable (QC), and Cambridge Brewing (MA), just to name a few, in other words a restaurant where fine dining meets fine brewing. Iíd definitely like to see more of those around!
A fabulous brewpub. I have never been disappointed by any of their offerings. The food is absolutely fabulous - it is as much a restaurant as a pub. 5 Seasons is perfect for having meetings or parties because they have an enclosed porch and a side room that can both accommodate large groups. This brewpub is easy to find - right off Roswell Road just inside I-285 - and parking is plentiful; plus, it is on the #5 Sandy Springs MARTA route.
Best brewpub in Atlanta, and now able to brew higher alcohol beers. All the beers are good and worth sampling. The food is more upscale, along with the price tag. The interior has a ski lodge type look to it. Pretty trendy place for a brewery. Worth a visit because the beers AND the food are good, which is not always the case with some brewpubs. But be prepared to blow your expense report.
Urban upscale brewpub restaurant with only 5 selections of the house brews on tap, and only three ales: ESB, Nut Brown and Porter. The beers were all good, but I was expecting some bigger and better brews here. Pizza and service was good. As others stated previously, not really worth the hassle of fighting through traffic to seek out, but a nice choice if in the area.
I only had one full pint here. A nice large facility with lots of outdoor seating. The parking situation is currently a little weird, but I am sure that will get fixed soon. The beer I had was decent. They were nice enough to allow a few from the ATL crew to sample a few beers. Nice wait staff if not particularly attentive.
When going in, this is a large, very elegant establishment with high ceilings and a wooden structure. The large venting ducts have been painted to match and everything comes together very well. The brewery is visible behind the bar and the fermenters are visible off to the side of the restaurant. Everything is outdone here, nothing is compromised. The service is good, no big gripes when I was there. I met the brewmaster (Dennis) and he was one of the coolest, most down to earth brewmasters I've ever met. He was even kind enough to give me a sneak-peak preview at his upcoming triple which was terrific at only 10-days old. The selection of beers on tap was very well rounded for any tastes. My biggest love of this place is the food, they have the best menu in a brewpub I've ever seen. The food was all very tasty and modern, like I said, nothing is compromised. This is definatelly a NOT-MISS spot in Atlanta.
Nice terraced layout, with the brew kettle behind the bar. The servers were very attentive. The selection of beers is good. The food we all had was excellent. The prices are fair. The food is a little pricy, but the beer is $5-6 per glass. This is a great place.
