Good beer and nice ambiance. Did not eat there, but tried all their beers on tap. Good selection, friendly staff and good value.

Very nice looking outside. Thereís a large patio, a restaurant seating inside, the bar, of course, and also an inside/outside seating area. The bar has a nice look to it; quite accomodating, with some small tables to the side as well. On tap they have their handful of flagships, as well as several seasonal/limited offerings. The service is usually pretty nice. The food is good as well. They offer live music all the time (4 or 5 days a week it seems) with no cover charge.

This is a large place. Nice patio with a little fountain thing out front, and plenty of parking. Inside is a restaurant above all, but if you head straight to the back youíll find a standard brewpub bar. I just didnít care for the beers. Service was quick and friendly, though. Didnít try the food. You might as well try this place, just donít expect too much from the beers.

Saturdays are very busy for the brewpubs on 151. Some places handle the crowds with admirable grace and calm; Wild Wolf isnít one of those places. Sitting at the bar and watching the staff run around like headless chickens was an anxiety-inducing experience. I donít know if theyíre disorganized or just massively understaffed, but they were clearly in the weeds. Accordingly, the service suffered. As for the beers, theyíre all over the place. 11 featured on tap, representing a broad range of styles. None were particularly good. However, the prices were pretty fantastic. The foodís quality is debatable. My reuben sandwich was legitimately boss, my companionís fish tacos apparently were awful. Overall, thereís room for improvement here. These guys arenít keeping Devils Backbone and Blue Mountain awake at night.

Not the best of the breweries on 151. Service and food is a hit and miss situation, and the beer is somewhat wanting. Wish this place were better. Maybe time is needed.

Stopped by here in that awkward part of the day between lunch and dinner, our group were on our way back to the house we had rented for the weekend after eating lunch at Blue Mountain. We stopped in to try some of the brews and try an appetizer and deserts. Place was pretty packed - I didnít catch what people in our group said for seating, whether we wanted to sit in the restaurant or out in the covered, heated patio area. Well, we worked our way back to the back, through the restaurant and then the narrow bar in the back.

Well it was empty outside - so Iím not sure if the place was warming it up or what, since we had waited for a few minutes inside to be seated. Anyway, it wasnít a big deal - we were in no kind of rush and it got us a few moments to check out the place and the clientele. Interesting mix between people who are locals. Main courses looked good, deserts were tasty. Beer was pretty well crafted. Live music was being set up as we were leaving.

This was a stop off for dinner after a family gathering in Lexington. The parking lot was close to full. The waiter was very helpful. I had the IBA with bar-b-que. My wifeís chicken was outstanding. The overall service was excellent. The bar in the back room was packed. Their beers have improved and the location is perfect.

I havenít rated in a place in a while, but we enjoyed our visit to Wild Wolf enough to get me to pipe up. We were there at lunch on Monday, very quiet. Had a very attentive waitress, the beers were generally solid, and the food was great. Also, it was great sitting on the patio so the kids could play in the moon bounce and other activities -- we took our time and enjoyed ourselves. The prices were ok.

Just 3 weeks short of their opening of the brewpub, we stopped by to sample the beers and pick up a growler. The beer was quite good -- and the combination with the homebrew supply store makes it worth the stop alone. Look forward to visiting the restaurant when open -- Nelson County is delivering some great beer -- between Blue Mountain, Devilís Backbone, and now this place -- awesome! (#545)

These guys moved down the road from a strip mall into a brewpub about a month ago, but construction is still ongoing on some outbuildings. The place is built into what was apparently an old school house and the layout is pretty cool, though the bar being so far removed from the restaurant was a little weird. The bar is basically in front of a wall of television. Customer service was good, even if it was over the top a bit. I know if youíre new you want feedback, but you donít need to have EVERYONE asking the customers. I ordered a burger which was of average quality. 6 beers on tap, including 5 of their own plus a guest tap. Iíve been underwhelmed by the beer in the past, but as time goes on, the brewmaster is steadily improving. I did not see any homebrew supplies at the location, as they had at the old location. My score reflects the new location. The old score was a 56.

New brewery in Nellysford, right between Blue Mountain and Devilís Backbone. Right now theyíre in a strip mall but they intend to start a brewpub in the next several months. Run by a friendly mother and son team. The mother runs the shop, the son is the brewer. Siebel educated, but virtually no commeicial brewing experience before this venture, his beers arenít great and are a little rough around the edges. But, he does certainly have potential and he seems motivated. This is also a homebrew shop, and is well stocked in that regard. Growler fills are available, and are on the pricy end. They do allow you to sample beers, and they also make a house made root beer. Interesting place, neat little setup. It will be interesting to see how they transition into a brewpub, but I wish them success.
