Been here twice and both times it was pretty crowded, especially the brunch; similar to other Granite Cities in the Twin Cities; servers seemed friendly even if they were not quite sure about the beer; food was good and the beer is okay; worth visiting if you are close
Went here for sunday brunch and it was packed. Bartender was friendly, and the food was good. That’s where the compliments end. The only beer I saw on tap was their own brew, which wasn’t good. They may have macro bottles, but who cares?
Generic suburban restaurant and bar like in any strip mall. At first we were plopped in with about 25 families with crying babies, then we moved to the bar, which is where I recommend sitting at this place. The food was decent. The beer is very mediocre. This place is just for ratings whores, or, if, like us, you happen to pull up and there it is. But it’s no destination brewpub by any means. Very cheap flights available.
Have a few pretty decent tap beers, nothing too crazy. Been here quite a few times with the family. Food is good if you stick with burgers/sandwiches/etc. You can try all the different beers they offer and the mug club is a good deal if you frequent any of their locations.
I stayed in a hotel for about a month by here and used to go in all the time. The staff was really friendly and let me totally customize what I wanted. The beers are ok but nothing out of this world. The staff is not really knowledgeable about craft beers in particular but overall not a bad place to go. Gets pretty busy as this is right by the mall.
Can’t compete with bars that offer wide selections of craft beers but their own beers that they do offer are a nice variety anyway. The options are very sufficient to go with most of the food that they offer. The food is definitely the reason to go here. Very wide array which is nice if one person in your party wants Italian, one wants Mexican, one wants steak and one wants pizza. Your best bet is to go here on a Monday night when you can sign up for the mug club for a half price cost of only $10.
Clean, friendly environment with comfortable seeting and televisions displaying the Twins game. Large windows displayed the brewing kettles which was interesting. Service was attentive and friendly though a bit clumsy. Food was quite good: I ordered the chicken parmesan which was excellent. Their brews are ok, though I agree that many of the servers know very little about the beer. It was a bit crowded for a Thursday evening also. Wroth a try for sure.

Dark, woodsy bar. Bartenders didn’t seem to know what they were pouring using terms like dark and light to describe the beer, but they were friendly enough. Suburbs, so mostly families in this location. Crowded on a weekday evening. I didn’t eat, food looked OK.
had a very tasty 5 alarm burger and that was the highlight. beers were fun to try but thought they were to safe and not very interesting. worth a visit if you want a session but don’t go out of your way.

I liked this place a lot.. it appeared very new and while the wait was long on friday night once we got a table our food was quick and delicious.. The beers were the standards accross every one while I was there as the specialties were out. The selection of taps was limited to only theirs that I saw. Service was top notch and I had fun.
