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.

Stopped in here prior to an LSU home football game. Was in town for the game, made the pilgrimmage to Abita. Glad that I did. The bar was quite empty which was a lil dissapointing but that was due to the upcoming game. With the lack of patrons, we received great service. Food was good and beer offerings even better. Tons of taps, stuff not bottled yet. Worth the drive!

I live about a mile from this place and it is one of my favorite local *restaurants* based on the tasty food alone. This is southeast Louisiana, there is no shortage of great places to eat in these parts, so for this to be a favorite truly speaks volumes! The atmosphere is that of a simple country family restaurant. Very understated but homey and welcoming. Very wide variety of food offerings ranging from steaks and burgers to Louisiana seafood dishes and classics like jambalaya. Everything on the menu is great. Oh, yes, they have beer too! You will find all the currently active Abita beers on tap. This includes the flagship beers, whatever the current seasonal is, and one or two select Abita brews that change regularly. There is always one and only one guest beer on tap. The guest beer is either a not-widely-known import or a not-widely-stocked American microbrew.

Had lunch here with my brother and his girlfriend. Nice ambience and food I had (Gyro) was really good. Had the AndyGator (Barleywine), Turbodog (brown ale), and the Restoration Ale(golden ale). All were good. Very friendly staff.

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.

I stopped in here with a friend one day when we were passing through in 2004. The selection was okay, as was the food. But what it lacked (only slightly) in those areas, it made up for in service. My friend and I sat at the bar to have some drinks and food, and everyone working there was great, as were the other customers around us. Another thing, if youíre coming here to taste the Abita brews, they will give you free two- to three-ounce samples. At least they did when I went there. I hope to make it back to this place one day, and if I ever pass through here again, I will.

We ate at the brewpub, after renting a car in New Orleans and driving up to Abita Springs. This building was the original Abita Brewing Co. site, in downtown Abita Springs, LA. Great little town to visit, and this little place is really a great spot in town! Ambiance is casual and laid-back, with a good varity of Abita beers on tap and in bottles. Service was mostly friendly though a bit distant; we would have been better off at the bar itself instead of a table. Food came as ordered and quickly; very good bayou fare (jambalaya, creole shimp, catfish po-boys, etc) and it was paired very nicely with fresh Abita beers from the new brewery, which is 3 or 4 miles north of town. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the New Orleans area!

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.
