cheap (205) Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania | January 24, 2015
Visitied in the winter, no outside deck of course. Really cool initial impressions. Old restored building feel in this one. Big restaurant with lots of setaing. Has a chocolate store attached. Nice big sampler of eight brews. Really liked thedining and drinking experience. Food was rather expensive but hey its in the middle of downtown nashua.
Early lunch on a Friday, fairly quiet, menu selection was very good ranging from basic pub fare to decent dining options, beer selection was somewhat limited, but encompassing. Taste tested a few before ordering a pint and they were all good, clean brews. Food was very good. Service was very good.
Downtown Nashua brewpub that has been around for many years. Loved looking at the eight big copper fermenting tanks in the back of the room. Eight locally brewed beers on tap when I was there for lunch so as I usually do in brewpubs - I ordered the sampler paddle. The beers all had their own likable qualities to them. None of the eight seemed bad at all. I had the Cubano Panini with a Greek pasta salad on the side for $10. It was delightful. Very friendly waitress name Kirsten. I recommend it.
This was an unexpected surprise - a country inn feeling, attached to a chocolate shop, or maybe the other way around. Tap selection had a good variety of their own stuff, mostly very solid. Lobster rolls were really good. Worth going out of your way to try.
Marthas is housed in an old downtown building that used to be a candy shop, and you can still buy candies at a walk-up counter. The interior is spacious and there is outdoor seating for good weather days. The food was particularly good and the beer slightly above average. Our server was friendly, attentive and prompt.
Decent beers but keep in mind they only sell what they brew. Some of the crafts are good others are quite lacking. They have improved the quality of the restaurant significantly over the past several years although you still get a very lets say "casual" crowd. That could be good or bad based on what youre looking for I guess :)
Iíve been to Marthaís quite a few times and Iím kind of surprised I havenít rated this before now. So Marthaís is a brew pub on the main drag (Main St) through downtown Nashua. They have no off street parking, but the parking garage on high street is free after 6pm and on the weekend if you canít find something on street. The menu has standard pub fare as well as some more exotic dinners, I like the Spicy Caribbean Jerk Chicken for example. There are usually 6 or 7 house brews on tap and once a week they tap a cask. The beer is usually solid and sometimes exceptional. Iíve always received prompt attention from the staff. Prices seem to be in line with similar establishments and the candy counter is a surefire way to get my wife to come with me. The one downside is at 10 pm on the weekend the place turns into a dance club so its best to avoid unless you are into that sort of thing.
Stopped in for dinner and beers on Veterans Day. The building has an interesting history, check out the story on the website. Seven brews on draught. Nothing on cask. We were not real impressed with the food. Small portions and they got my order wrong. Our waitress was nice and friendly and didnít have trouble fixing my bill after they got my food wrong. I say stop in for beers and eat someplace else.
I stopped here on a Tuesday afternoon for lunch and it was pretty quiet. The place has a sports-bar feel with several large TVs tuned to ESPN. They had 7-8 of their beers on tap, which were pretty basic styles (I tried the stout which was decent and the pilsener which was pretty good). The food menu is fairly extensive, featuring most of your typical pub fare. I had the soup and salad which was tasty. Overall, a decent stop although there is really nothing about the place to stand out in my head and Iím sure Iíll forget I ever went here in a few years. Would I come back? Meh...maybe, but probably not.
