I was going to stop by last time I was here 4 years ago, but didnít. Might as well make it my 50th rating! Nice little joint with sitting inside and out. We were going to do the outside thing and watch the storm roll in, but the old lady was overcome by heat, so inside we went. 12ish taps to take the pain away, and you can order flights to your choosing. Server was nice, and cussed like I do (didnít even notice), food was a rockstar. 2nd best bite I had to eat (sorry, you still donít beat mammaís lasagna) while in state. Overall, drop by even if you are not in the neighborhood, youíll have a great time. Just look out for THE LAW, they set up shop just outside across the street waiting for people that had too much to drink. Plan ahead.

Came into town expecting a little more for my time and money. We stopped by on New Years Eve to watch the ball drop (Great time at this event) and treat ourseleves to some craft beer. Beer was very good but the service wasnít there, had to switch plates, not cooked right on and on.

Visited for lunch on a weekday in the summer. Feels like a little mom and pop restaurant in a shore town that happens to brew beer, but they had plenty of taps (maybe 8?), with some surprisingly good selections, some average. Nice, quiet outdoor seating overlooking (from a distance) the harbor, very private, practically feels like you could be at home out there. A place that doesnít necessarily excite you but still leaves you very happy.

This is a small brewpub/restaurant in the touristy town of Ludington, MI (all the other patrons appeared to be out-of-towners as well). We sat outside on the patio that somewhat overlooked the harbor (it wasnít ON the harbor but close enough to see it). The bar looked very nice too. The beer here was ok - there were maybe 6 taps and most of them were your basic styles. The food was decent (I got a cherry pecan salad) but there is an extensive menu. Overall, it was a nice place to chill with a pint and some food.

Good beer, bad food, fair service. Sat at the bar. Just run of the mill menu. But I thought the beer was much better than the rankings.

We sat outdoor and enjoyed the warm weather. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was good, my sister enjoyed huge chef salad, the wraps were good according to the family and my pasta and chicken was good. The beer was not too shabby and priced well. Will continue to stop in when in the area.

Really good food and friendly service. Nice ambiance. Beer was very good, but not great. I highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area.

Stopped by for dinner, and sat on the back porch area. A large vacant lot behind the place allows one to watch the car ferry as it comes in, and what a treat that was! I had two samplers, five 5oz. samples for $6, very reasonable, especially since the beers were generally very good. Food was outstanding, especially the blackened chicken sandwich. I had the fish and chips, and was overwhelmed with the portions. Fries, as typical in a place like this, were beer battered and excellent. Service was prompt and attentive. A couple of the advertised beers were out. This would be a very regular hangout, if only we lived closer than six hours. Maybe we should take the car ferry??

On vacation in Luddington for a few days last summer and had a chance to visit here. The ambiance was nice, small and cozy storefront style pub with the brewing equipment in the basement. Friendly staff that asked my a lot about my note taking. The brewer even stoped by and said hi. Lots of locals that seemed to know each other and the employees.

Nice atmosphere and quite excellent bar/beer food. We went for lunch. Decent selection of brews though they were out of the ones that sounded the most interesting to me.
