Stopped in here on a trip to Wadesboro. Set my expectations pretty low for a couple of reasons that need not be expounded upon. Was surprised to see Crisp Maris Otter in the brewing area. Ambiance was definitely that of a chain, but not necessarily in a bad way. I did get a 7 beer sampler for like $4 which was pretty sweet. The beers were not so sweet. Food came out pretty quick and was much better than I expected. Nothing to blow your mind but still tasty. I got salmon and it was cooked perfectly so thereís that. Our waiter was very attentive and gave us great service.

meh, was walking distance from my hotel. No guest taps and their standard line was ranging from terrible to subpar. Not even decent for BMC drinkers. Fail.

I had a few hours to kill in Charlotte, and found this place; a Gordon Biersch-type environment. It fit my needs - decent enough craft beer and appetizers at quite reasonable happy hour prices.
I sat at the bar, chatted with an amiable older gentleman who was a regular, and had some beers and appetizers. Draft beers were a buck, and appetizers were half price. The year-round beers were a snooze-fest, but they had an oatmeal stout and IPA as seasonals, and both were decent (and a buck!). I also had some nachos and pot-stickers, which were OK. The cheap-ness of these beers and food really elevated them in my mind; had I visited 2 hours later and paid full price, my impressions may have been different.
Service at the bar was OK...the bartender seemed to get that I knew something about beer and didnít try to over-explain things, which I appreciated.
Not bad, but far from exceptional. Still, choices are limited in this town, and I wouldnít not recommend it.

Spent part of 7 years in the area and worked in Charlotte for a year. The beers are all decent but donít expect anything too outstanding. Selection is somewhat small too. Food is pretty good however, I always had good service and the atmosphere is nice. A good place to go for dinner or lunch or just chill out at the bar.

Stopped here on my way to pick up a friend. Waitresses were nice and attentive the beer selection was minimal as they had only house beers, but the beers were good. I had the brewmaster steak, which was also good. TVs were not properly positioned to see them from all angles. Nice place.
