Visited on 2014 road trip. The hotel and pub fit in with Kimberly’s fake German kitch but I found this pub to be depressing. Looks sad, dark on the inside and even the patio too. Service was tentative, hesitant, and weird. Hardly any people eating or drinking. I sure would not eat here. Beers were likely made from extract. They do not give samplers but the prices are decent enough. If you need to make choices, the pils and the stout were actually ok; the pale had serious problems. The awesome pub Pedal and Tap is right down the street so it couldn’t hurt to tick this quickly and then go have a nice session and some grub there afterwards.

Attached to a hotel, so a bit European that way. The interior is a nice pub and there’s a small patio out front. The beers are not that great, though. They have cans but you can’t just buy one. Don’t ask me, I was just trying to give them money. The iffy brew and disinterested service stand out for me.
