Pretty unexciting selection of brews, nothing extra or special or rare. I was really hoping to try something I hadnít ever seen before. But there was nothing extra, nothing that couldnít be had in stores. The food wasnít at all bad, but it wasnít what Iíd expect from a restaurant. Perhaps because at this place, they didnít have a full-service restaurant-quality kitchen. Therefore, the menu was simple and consisted of things that could be put together with minimal preparation. Chips were served instead of french fries because they do not have a frialator. The atmosphere in this place was somewhat sterile and office-like, (perhaps because it is a new bulding), not really welcoming or rustic or brew-pub-ish. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful, the service was good. I thought the food was slightly overpriced considering I could have easily made myself anything that they had on the menu. The only reason Iíd go back would be to take a tour, or if they offered some special rare brews.

This place has better food than beer. If you donít like any of the Red Hook beers, youíre out of luck. The resturant and bar is like the Olive Garden or Applebees of brewpubs, it just seems too fake. On the other hand, the wait staff is very nice and you can always take the daily tour for $1.

I went there for lunch. There are no rare Redhook beers here--only about 6-7 beers. Also, the food is slightly high, and the service was very slow (took 1.5 hours for lunch, and had to almost scream at the waitress to get more water). Food was mostly good--the chili is the best deal for the money. They have no fryer (they would be prosecuted for this in the south), so no fries with the burgers. And of course the day I go has to be a day when all tours are cancelled.
