A nice, smaller restaurant with a very good selection of craft beers on tap, many from the region, which changes frequently. The food and service were both good. The prices are leaning towards the higher end.

Friendly place with a rock solid selection, a good mix of local and regional stuff, plus Belgian and other European top notch beers, and a handful from the west coast. A handful of bombers rounds out the list. Worth a stop.

Good place to grab some food with good quality beer. They have 20 beers on taps that are constently changing. They keep a good range of beer styles on rotation. Food was good with a decent selection. Sandwiches and appetizers are reasonably priced but the entrees are a bit high. Protions are small but still at an exceptable size, great dinner for before you go hit the other bars downtown.

Is ambiance a beer diner. Small with a nice long bar. a few booths. the selection was only 20 taps but over half were beers I had never hhad , some I had never heard of. food was good and the bartender Jeff knowledeable and service was great. Just off the highway and will be added as my one allowable stop and beer between DC and pittsburgh.
2/13 Sorry to say must take the rating down. The selection seemed a little more typical, and that had been a strength, but the big kicker was the servise or rather lack thereof. essentially ignored bywith an empty glass and certainly no friendly conversation. It wasn’t busy but I got the distinct feeling customers should go away and not bother the barmaid..

Great place to grab a fresh beer. Beer change frequently which is good for freshness, but bad if you have a beer you really enjoy....it will be gone soon. On the plus side something else will be available. Service is great, food is good, prices are a bit high, but mostly because they keep the beer flowing via sixtels to rotate quickly. Overall, a great place to get a great beer any day of the week. Staff is great too. Only drawback is the small location, need a bigger bar and more seating.

They have a great beer selection. Friendly staff who will answer your questions about the beers on tab. The food is delicious, I love the idea of roasted and baked food instead of fried food. My suggestion on your first visit is to try the Mac and Cheese.
