This place is now called "Growlers" and is completely smoke free. The beers didnít change, but the menu did. No more seafood with the exception of shrimp. Great prices on the beers they brew on site. Usually regular prices here are cheaper than Happy Hour prices elsewhere. Top beers are the Hop Dog, Sunshine Wheat, and the Virginia Creeper. Look for seasonals like Black or White IPA, Blackberry 420, Octoberfest...

The Big Daddyís beer is more drinkable than other local beers. Itís worth a try but donít expect a knockout.

Back room is a concert venue, so it is loud and the whole restaurant has bleed-over smokiness so itís hard to smell the beer. Every time they open the door between the 2 sides you are blasted with noise. Band isnít half bad, though not really what I want to hear when Iím eating seafood. Free wifi, no patio, minors allowed, decor is green bead board with white walls and giant fish & crabs with random paint jobs. Food is pretty good, though they donít know what jerk sauce is supposed to taste like. The clam chowder was fresh, not fishy tasting. They donít really have beer to seafood recommendations, as the beer often overpowers the seafood, rather than complementing it. Server had tried their beers could recommend his favorite, which hasnít always been the case with some of the places we have been. I agree that his favorite is the most flavorful of the lot, so it was a good recommendation.

Well, the smoke from the adjoining bar seeps its way into the main restaurant. The place is decorated like a late 80s/early 90s beach bar, minus the requisite flamingos. The beers are below average; I had to send the Oktoberfest back because it had broccoli floating in it. I tried the crab balls, and they were tasty. All the beers had a smoky and ashy hint to them.

Weird place. They make their own beer but itís also one of the biggest BMC emporiums Iíve ever seen. Theyíre a seafood restaurant with a bar area seemingly twice as big. The night we went their was a heavy metal band playing in the bar and so much smoke you could cut it with a knife. Definitely more tattoos and people flying their freak flags then I typically have seen in a Brewpub. They had 6 regular and one seasonal. The beers were fairly bland. The service was pretty good and the food was solid as well but thereís no reason to go here except for the beer ticks.

This is the only one of the several Awful Arthurís locations that brews its own beer. Beer is available on site. Nice open feel, though the back gets way too smoky. The food is decent. Not great, but pleasant. Customer service is competent, sometimes friendly. They have six beers brewed on site available at any time, with the occasional seasonal rotation. Beers are mediocre but drinkable. Not really a place to seek out, but interesting if you want to have some decent seafood and want to try some new beers. Prices are decent and parking is ample,
