OK...so at the end of the day...this place has "really" good food. Itís actually a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde...great restaurant...passible brewpub. Letís not forget that in warm weather the bar area is notoriously cold from setting the AC too high (been this way for years in spite of constant complaints...go figure)...forget gettting your women to enjoy a beer here. In any case...definitely a good craftbeer stop when in the area...allways a good food stop (or try even better cuisine at their other place called Undici)..

Went during the day, so it wasnít too crowded, with the square bar was mostly full. It seemed a little too dark inside, but maybe that was a result of just coming in from outside in the sun. Samplers are $9 for six 5 oz. pours. Service was average. Food smelled pretty good, but we didnít eat.

Good food and decent beer. Comfortable atmosphere, although the band that was playing that night was pretty obnoxious. The service is good, but the prices are a bit steep. Worth checking out considering the dearth of brewpubs and beer bars in the area.

The outside is not that stunning, but the inside felt warm and inviting. Lots of dark wood and I liked the deli case with all the meats and cheese hanging overhead. They had a nice square bar which is perfect for conversation. The service was ok. I donít like going to places where they donít write out whatís on the sampler. I like to know what Iím drinking as Iím drinking it. None of the beers really did much for me. The pizza, on the other hand, was fantastic. It was apportioned with lots of real toppings and the crust was crunch enough to support it. The prices are what youíd expect for the area. Overall itís a nice place to have a meal, wouldnít go out of my way to just drink their beer.

Nice looking place, almost reminds me of a cigar bar. Proudly displayed brewing equipment, always a plus. Friendly bartenders, quick service. Music was terrible, totally killed the mood. The beer was honestly mediocre at best, and only six to choose from. OK place, but definitely not rushing to go back again!

A great building that looks like nothing from the outside, but displays charm and confidence once inside. Lots of fresh products, vegetables and fancy Europeans meats decorate the multi-roomed establishment with a disctinct character depending on where you sit. Excellent service, highly friendly and professional. Fine food of high quality, but on the expensive side, expect to pay at least 20$ for a complete meal, but while it was at lunch time, I have not eaten until 1am afterwards. The beer selection is nothing really out of the ordinary and entirely depends on whether you go there when interesting seasonals are on, but the regulars are of above average quality. I would come to eat from time to time if I lived close, but I would not necessarily come as a regular drinker unless they bring out some appealing seasonals. Still a very satisfying and worthy stop if youíre in the area.

Nice place. Beer and food are both good. Service is bad. But this place is outragiously overprice.
Cheapest thing is on the menu is the pizza. $18 for a bar pie??!! Comíon.
Iíd stay away unless you are really curious about the beer.

I stopped in on a Thursday night at 9:30 and it was jam packed. This is obviously a popular place in Red Bank. Very mixed crowd. The cozy 4 sided wood bar is dimly lit, with plasma tvs. Very loud when itís crowded. The menu is a little pricey, but the food is outstanding if you love gourmet Italian. The beers were ok, but the Maxwellís dry stout was excellent. I think the focus of this place is the food and dining experience, not the beer. If you want a great dinner and want to sample some local brew, this is worth a stop. If you just want beer, I would not go out of your way unless you are in the area.

Nothing that thrilling on tap except for the Maxwellís Dry Stout which was quite good. Food was very good, but also very expensive. Wasnít in the mood for a big Italian meal, just some good pub food which they really didnít have. Settled on a panini chicken sandwich which was good, tried my wifeís burger(also paninized) and was good too. One at our table got a real Italian dinner and it was excellent, but again pricy. If the beers were better I would probably try it again, buy not in the near future.

Decent regular lineup of beers, but nothing spectacular although the Maxwellís Dry Stout is quite highly regarded. Food is excellent, but expensive. There were four bartenders working when I was there, and only maybe 15 people at the bar. But service was still slow, tenative, as if they didnít want to step on each otherís toes or bother me too much. Still, they were pleasant and able to answer my few questions. Gretchenís seasonals are usually very good. It can be quite loud from the patrons and the open kitchen, plus there is often cigar smoke.
