The food, particularly steak, is pretty good. House beer can be a bit boring, but I recently tried the Barley Wine as a seasonal, and it was fantastic. Service is relatively fast, and the place is not as packed as it seemed to be ten years ago. The pale ale is decent and the stout is always a crowd favorite. Located in a sort of cheesy old strip mall called Westloop, it is also right down the road from Nesporís, the second best liquor store in Manhattan.
Little Apple has a great stable of regular brews and their seasonals are fabulous as well. The stout they brew in the winter is phenomenal. The menu is has a good family variety but donít expect chilliís prices...and donít expect chilliís food...this is a great american small town microbrew and restaurant with college girl waitresses and home town customers. Great atmosphere.
Have visited twice in the 3 years I have been living in Lawrence. First time was a relatively subpar experience but last time was much better. They have purttied the place up. New paint, new decorations for the shopping plaza. This seems to have translated to the brewing. No more diacetyl, no more lemony tartness int he beers. So, the beers are no longer poorly brewed. However, they are nothing special, very average brews, not well attenuated, muddied flavor profiles, etc. Worth a stop but donít expect anything phenomenal. A good amount of taps. Food is very Midwest, big portions with lots of meat on the menu. Actually the menu was very extensive but still within the average brewpub fare choices.
Service is quick, crowd is very local and somewhat unwelcoming this isnít cheers for sure, the black angus is super creamy for such a heavy stout.. Specials are plentiful and of decent value best of a bad situation stuck here in Kansas
not sure when they re did the menu but I love it, usally always have something new on tap, black angus stout is one of my favorites, always get beer to go, wish they would update the website over all great pleace.
