This looks like a small house from the outside. You canít park in front or on the sides, but you just a bit past it and thereís a small public lot in front of the restaurant across the street. The place was fairly empty, so easy to find seating at the bar. They had a dozen or so taps, available in a normal flight of five, or a premium flight, but they do the choosing. The taste range of the premium flight was very narrow when I visited, which made for a pretty uninteresting flight. The food was tasty, though, Cajun style. Not worth going out of your way for, but if youíre in the neighborhood itís decent enough.

Visited February 19, 2014.

At the risk of losing a brewery rating Iíll say that this isnít really a brewery anymore, and it hasnít been since the 90s. This was the original Abita brewpub but when they opened the production brewery up the way they sold this to a family that wanted to take it over. So technically speaking this isnít even owned by Abita anymore. That said, they have a contract to only carry Abita beer save for one guest tap. When I was there it was Stone smoked porter. Also, they have most of the original brewery on display in the back. When beer was brewed here it was not a restaurant or bar, it was purely a production brewery. Now theyíve jammed what remains of the original brewery into the corner and built a glass case around it so that you can look at it but itís not functional. Thatís not to sound negative, just to provide a little history. Itís actually a nice place and if the kitchen wasnít closed I would have gladly eaten here.

As it was I arrived 10 minutes before closing but they were nice enough to sell a pint and give a few free samples. Not really a whole lot of stuff that you havenít had most likely but they had some cask variations (not ticks) and a seasonal that I hadnít had before. Their IPA when fresh at (near) the source isnít bad. Cozy little place with good service. I wanted to try the muffuletta sandwich but no such luck.

Somehow I forgot to rate this earlier. Visited September 2013. The food was tasty and they had one brewpub exclusive beer available. Otherwise quite good selection of Abita brews available. Quite long drive from New Orleans.

Been working in Baton Rouge since May í05 and finally got a chance to drive the 60 or so miles over here. A little out of the way but worth the trip. Had six of their regulars on tap, one of their Selects, two seasonls and a guest tap - Rogue Dead Guy Ale. Had an extensive menu with a Cajun flare. Had the chicken with fried oysters, shrimp and creamed spinach. Very good. The place reminds me a bit of "Porkyís" from the í80s movie - but with much more flair and class. Can get very smoky.

Many moons ago that I was there. Funky and about to move down the road to bigger and pehaps better. I liked the people a lot more than I liked their beers.

Stopped by on the way to NOLA .. been wanting to stop by for years (and my feet are fine) .. . Great cozy little spot .. nice food and fat burgers .. . selection was a bit disapoointing, nothing special or brewpub exclusive- which i would have expected .. did have a seasonal but every bar in NOLA had to so .. I did enjoy my visit, but its basically just a quaint restaurant that serves Abita .. and Tonka the cat was cool!

Hard to believe that is where Abita started. Nice little spot with friendly service, and a good selection of there beers with some guest beer.

Set in the small town of Abita Springs, you really to have to trek to get there. The beer is actually brewed at the brewery just down the road. Usually about 6-8 beers available, with quality ranging from fair to very good. The food is always great. A good place to go when in the Northshore area.

Not a bad place. Mostly Abita brews on tap with a handful of one offs and a couple of guest brews. The burgers were very good. The bar tender was helpful and accommodating. Itís worth a stop if youíre nearby.

Very cool place. Friendly folks who know beer. Great atmosphere. Solid beer. Great food and a relaxing, but still hip and funky decor. The artwork (the walls are huge murals) was absolutely amazing, but the scenes are just of everyday life so I donít think they get the credit they deserve. Whoever the artist was....frigging incredibly skilled person. Really enjoyed this place and the owner was a very sweet lady who was happy to chat and never stopped smiling.
