Big, spacious, gorgeous building - an old railroad roundhouse (hence the name of the place) converted to a bar with an outdoor patio in the middle. The staff seems friendly enough, but, I was there on a Sunday afternoon, and it wasnít busy, but the staff seemed overwhelmed. That being said, they were able to tend to me without problems, however, they tended to gossip a bit much about their personal qualms among themselves, and they didnít seem as knowledgeable about their beers as I would hope (often needed to read the menus to refresh themselves on what each beer was). I wonder how they operate under busy conditions? A pretty good selection of 12ish taps, their 7 regulars, a couple seasonals, a couple limited releases, and a couple one offs. I didnít sample their food on this visit, maybe next time.

Like the other reviewers have stated, an enormous place with plenty of character and a fine selection of beers from Two Brothers. We visited between trains at 7pm on a Friday evening. Understandably, the place was packed so we used the alternative "beer bar" rather than the main bar. I was disappointed to receive my drink in a plastic glass and was gives the rather rude response that the "glassware" was soy and therefore biodegradable, and that the reason for the "soy" pots was that they had only been open for three years and hadnít got round to installing a glasswasher in that part of the bar area. Why not? Iím sure that the management makes pots of dough from the place and to serve quality ales in the type of container usually found at sports stadia seems like a serious error of management. What a shame, they were doing so well.

Very cool place. Food is good but often times not accurate. Service is their missing link. Great selection of their brew of course...10-15 selections with growlers bottles and cans to go. Servers and bartenders as of yet know little about the beers they serve which is a downer and food is good when right but often is missing " standard features"... Worth a stop for 2 bros beer...

Visited on a Sunday afternoon. Make sure you enter the parking lot right after the Comfort Inn when coming from the south on Broadway. The building is gigantic and beautiful. I was very surpised how slow it was. I figured this place was going to jam packed. My date and I were on our first date and we were sat right next to another table. Were they anticipating a crowd? The beer menu that was on the table was stained. The table was sticky as well. The beer menu itself was kind of confusing and felt like a moron when I realized that "5 Pint" and "6 Snifter" it was $5 for a pint... Iím not an old fart, but change it to Pint.......5 if you want to be swanky and not use dollar signs. My date and I ordered a couple of beers and the Pork Belly Tacos for starters to share. I clearly told our server weíd be sharing the tacos. No appetizer plates? The "Pork Belly" was pork shoulder and it wasnít even good pork shoulder. It was dry and flavorless. The lime wedge they sent with the plate was the opposite of fresh and hard as a rock. Iím not starting a first date by looking like a pretentious foodie and sending something back. Gotta ease her into that. :) Their beer is wonderful, however. The Monarch and the Redeye Porter were outstanding. She ordered the Chimi-Turkey Sandwich and really liked it. I had the Rueben. It said the beef was "House Corned" on the menu. It had no flavor other than beef. Their chips were super thin and really good, though. Definitely not a fan of this place. Iíd watch a football game here with some beer and chips.

Wonderful food, service and location. I especially liked the quality of their beer, which is so much better ílive and in personí than the bottled versions. It is a must try for those looking for good food to go along with good beer. The Roundhouse has a great history behind it as well. It is very well staffed and you must try it.

The food here was pretty good and matched the well with the breweryís offerings. I think the beer that is present now is superior to those offered when this was Walter Peytonís Roundhouse. There seems to be a more solid selection and balance in the brews.

Great now that two brothers took over, i cant wait for hop juice to come out and they have their festival. Really great outdoor space, and some great local small bands. The food is 100% better than when the place was walter paytons. Service could still use a little help. The owners are very nice and they make ridiculously good beer.

I visited this place when it was Walter Paytonís Roundhouse and was thrilled to hear Two Brothers had purchased the complex. This place is huge! As of right now they are serving food and have TBs on tap with a couple Roundhouse specialties on tap. I canít wait to come back once this place is really up and running. The bartender said they should be brewing there by February or March.
