The best thing this place has going for it is its location, itís smack-dab in the middle of campus. Service is good, pleasant. Selection sucks, thereís like 6 of their beers on tap. Value is OK, $8.50ish for entrees and $3.50 pints. Iíll go back.

From what I had, I enjoyed their oatmeal stout the best out of all of their beers I tried. Their year-rounders are delightful for the money paid. I canít imagine anyone above the age of twelve actually missing the building -- itís quite large and very distinct. The service was so-so, a brunette girl on food service forgot my drink three different times and I was a little more than annoyingly unimpressed with the entrees. The space is big enough, but there always seemed to be televisions playing the most obnoxious sporting events and the walls are alive with what I refer to as "clusterfuck art", which is basically finding anything you can on the street and nailing to the wall and hope someone appreciates it.

This is a no frills, typical brewpub located so near campus that it definitely has a frat-bar vibe looming in the air. I just had an IPA which was fair. There wasnít anything standout to really bring me back.

Located at the University, looks nice from the outside. Inside has plenty of seating for the restaurant. The bar area was fairly small, but did have outside seating. Most of the beer is the same as Barrio, so not worth a special stop. I didnít try the food. The place was pretty empty for a Thursday afternoon (3pm).

A neat looking place near campus. Had the large sampler with 11 of their tap beers, which was nice. Most of the brews were pretty pedestrian. The place wasnít very busy in the middle of the afternoon, but that was nice. Enjoyed the patio area. Great service. Didnít try the food. Probably a cool hang out in the evening.

I enjoyed a couple of Porters and had A great hamburger. The bartender was very friendly. I was there in the afternoon, but it looks like a great college hangout.

Their beers are nice, prices are a bit over the top as they aim for the frat and sorority parties where money doesnt matter as much. I think the beers are pretty well made with 6 or 7 options all the time. Service is decent if its not too busy.

Beers are alright, but produced as to be mass appeal and not real ’craft’ beer. Food is decent, service is spotty. Not a bad place, but there are better places you can go for sure.

This place certainly lives up to its gentle description. Very tame atmosphere with an underwhelming array of beers on tap. The real downside here is the food, but at least the service is prompt and helpful.
