Large modern place. Restaurant is up front, you have to turn left and go to the end of the building to get to the bar. Seven regular beers plus two seasonals. All were heavily filtered but tasty enough. Snacks were limited, standard pub fare.

Can I just refer you to illinismitty’s review? He basically nails it. The design of the interior and the food menu tells you what they’re tyring to do... trying to seem a level above the Chili’s and other chain places in the area... but they did have 10 taps, with about half of those seasonals, such as a Spring Bock (maibock) and a Franklin Fest (vienna). Not a terrible place to stop while driving through, but the bar area at the end of the building isn’t exactly a drinking place - I feel like someone will yell at me if I spill beer on their perfectly polished counter. Still, not a bad spot.

Located off of the interstate surrounded by failry plentiful parking Looks like an Applebee’s type place if they had an unlimited supply of eggplant paint. They had 9-10 on draft but the beers look pretty fixed based on the fact that the beer menu was laminated and hadn’t been updated in years. The bar and restaurant have separate entrances for some reason. The beers are solid but not amazing. Service was decent but I didnt see any demonstrations of beer knowledge. BTW the 10 beer 5 ounce samplers are stupiidly insane. Pretty run of the mill brewpub.

Located in what appears to be a big chain restaurant local in an old strip mall type building, empty on the Sunday PM i was there (a few more patrons arrived after). Service was attentive and friendly, beers are rather uninspired (except the stout) but food was quite good. I had the smoked wings in Bourbon sauce, quite nice and juicy with a French onion soup. Sampler is 10 X 4 on. for 10$, but alas beers were boring.

This place was fairly empty on a Sunday evening. A sports-bar/restaurant set up tuned to the football game. The bartender was a bit awkward, although friendly. There were maybe 6 or so regular taps plus 2 seasonals. I tried the milk stout and IPA, the former was average and the latter was pretty good. I split a pizza for dinner and it was quite tasty. Overall, a good stop although the atmosphere was a bit off-putting.

Spent many evenings here as close to the Marriott. Beers are mediocre, the milk stout is my favorite, burgers good.

Typical brewpub that looked clean and well kept. Great service from the bartender, he answer questions about the beer and brought us samples without us even asking. The selection of beer was good and they also have beer to go of their flagship beers. I really didn’t expect much from this place as far as beer goes but was pleasantly surprised. The Milk Stout was really good.

I stopped in early on a Saturday evening. I have not been to the original location in years. This is much different than the one I visited in Lancaster as far as ambiance goes. The inside is basically semi-upscale contemporary, but somewhat sterile.The bar area (far removed from the dining area) has 5 LCD TVs and adequate seating at the bar itself. There were 10 beers on tap when I visited. Beers range from OK to decent. I did not get dinner, but I did order the wings. The wings are a must try, because they are smoked- thus the flavor is in the meat and does not rely on a drenching of Buffalo Sauce. For a brewpub, the menu gets close to being pricey. Pizzas are around $12, Burgers are $9, and other entrees are in the $17-25 range. However, I think they are trying to avoid the stereotypical perception of a brewpub, thus putting more emphasis on better food and ambiance.That comes with a price tag. I see nothing wrong with that.

Food is good (I had the pulled pork). Service is pretty good and the beer is ok. All their beer are made at the brewpub. It is a pretty nice place overall, but the beer is just ok.

Restaurant type setup and feel with adjoining bar area (we came for lunch). Service was friendly, attentive and knowledgable. Selection is good - all of their year-round choices + 3 seasonals. Food was okay... our party had a variety and whereas no one was disappointed, no one was thrilled either. Pricing was fair -- 20oz pints helps. I wouldn’t make a special trip to visit, but would stop in while visiting other places in Harrisburg area.
