First time here. Short drive from The Birch. Very crowded and loud on a Saturday night. Got a table and ordered food and drinks. Service was a bit slack. Fairly decent draft list. Food was very good. Had the burger with fried egg added. Friend ordered a Reuben which was also very good. Overall, nice place but would like to come back when it is much less crowded and noisy.

Visited this place a few months ago while in town with family. Great atmosphere and definitely a cozy vibe. They have a solid beer selection and definitely geared toward the local brewers. The staff was very knowledgeable and eager to assist with recommendations.
Donít miss the food - itís worth a stop even if you werenít planning to drink!

Classy place on the south end of the Ghent neighborhood in Norfolk, my favorite bit of the town. Most people stop in here for mixed drinks, but the tap list is very solid and worth a look. Almost entirely locals, a great change from downtown. Good food and bar snacks.

No idea what that GypsyHead guy is talking about - good tap list, all OíConnor beers are here and a lot more, nice bottle list and excellent food. Our server was also very good. Dig the atmosphere too. A tad spendy, but overall worth it.

The decor is fine and itís a decent enough atmosphere at first glance, but then the menu literally slaps you in the face, insulting you for thinking your $11 hamburger would include fries or any kind of side. And when you walk in to see the gorgeous 20+ taps laid out, you think youíre in for something special... Then you look at the beer board... Displaying only 4 beers... And you wonder whatís going on. Then the waiter tells you thatís the tap menu, and you get excited because it definitely says Rochefort 8, though itís all hard to make out. So when he brings you a bottle and a tumbler glass to pour it into, you just kinda lose all hope. If only I were a whiskey man, because the only thing this place has going is itís hard-a selection.
Then the food comes out, and you were hoping to eat your sandwich like... A sandwich, but instead theyíve laid a thick slice of meat all the way across the bread, no slicing, no dicing, no means of easy ingest, so youíre forced to break out a fork and knife on your "reuben with thinly sliced corned beef" and face the utter humiliation. At least itís actually a really tasty sandwich, though itíd be really nice to have more than a few apple slices as a side.
