Place was called Artisanís Brewery & Italian Grill. 6 taps. 6 oz samplers also available. Beer was decent (at most). Service was bearable. Thatís that. No need for another visit.

This is now Artisans Brewing. Service sucks. Now, granted the bartender was smokin hott, and I know I am in New Jersey, visiting from courteous Georgia... donít walk past me twice, notice I have not ordered yet, twice, and ask if I want something. Thatís why Iím sitting at the bar. Taking notes. Beer was completely buttered at that. Fresh beer canít be that hard. Iíve had it everywhere with less regular customers. I cannot believe I am recommending skipping a place with fresh beer.

How is it that Iíve been going here for years now, so much so that I had my daughterís christening party here, yet I never rated it. The ambiance is nice enough with the new renovation to include lots of dark woods in the dining areas, a large bar and additional seating area and even a private cigar lounge which I am a member of. Okay letís get to the meat of this.......the beer sucks. Thatís right the beer sucks!! There are about four staples that are always on and if by the luck of Zeus you get a day or two fresh sample they are okay. The rotating seasonals are unimaginative and boring. No barrel aged anything, no belgian anything, imperials nada. The lines must be in fight against McNeils for the dirtiest lines in America because if you go there and enjoy a nice crisp IPA on Monday and go back a week later you would have sworn they soaked it in old cardboard and wet vegtables. Seriously they need some serious quality control in this place and then they can work on trying to churn out some better beers. That being said I actually really liked their "Celtic Ale" that I had on my most recent visit but I canít add it because the waitresses are probably just as knowledgeable about beer as they are of 16th century Sweedish composers. Stop by for the raings, stay for the food and hot waiteresses.

Itís close to my house...thatís about the only good thing itís got going for it. I prefer their cigar room over their food. The beer is not bad but forgettable.

This was more of a very decent Italian restaurant with the brews being an also ran in this establishment. The food was very good, the beer very mediocre. If you are in the area, stop in for some pasta and then consider having a beer or two in that order.

Basically an Italian restaurant with a meager selection of premises-brewed beer. I guess I was just a bit underwhelmed. What beer they had was drinkable if not forgettable. Itís one block from my sisterís house so I guess thatís a plus.

Come for the brew, stay for the food. This brewpub makes a higher quality brew than its sister location in Red Bank, NJ. They have a pretty pretty standard regular line up (pale, red, light) but their seasonals are on the money. Try the bock in winter. Basilís serves mid-range ($15-$25/plate) Italian bistro fare. Iíve been here many times and always had something different on the menu, and never been dissappointed. The place is decorated in dark wood and even has a cigar lounge. It can be pretty loud on a weekend night when they bring in the live music.

Good place to get a cheap good beer when needed. A rugular at the place, the staff has changed a bit, but still pretty good. The burgers and pizza are really good, the regular entres are over priced for what you get. The beer is good, some rather generic styles, would like to see them make a few more interesting offerings

I found all of their beers to be on the hoppy side, which is just fine with me. The menu leans towards italian food. Have the porter, it is outstanding.
