Hard place to find anything ad to say. Beer is great and interesting. Definitely a premier brewpub nationally for beers alone. Atmosphere is exactly what you’d expect in this area: a comfortable upperclass suburban casual dining joint. Food is good high class american pub fare. I can’t really imagine a scenario where someone wasn’t happy they visited.
Stopped in for lunch on a weekday afternoon. Several items on the menu looked good and narrowed my choice down to the pulled pork. Very good. Ordered a flight of their beers (8), good selection. Was impressed with the whole brewpub, remodeled train station, very cool. Near the bar they have a cooler of their beers, so we picked up a couuple that we did not try with lunch. Reasonbly priced, and they were cold, always travel with a cooler and a growler. We also decided to fill our growler to share with our family. Will definitely return when we are in the area.
Visited 7/30/2010 and again on 10/12/2010. More recently I stopped in for dinner with my aunt and uncle after GTMW 2012.
The first time was right around dinner time so it was pretty full and noisy. I did get a seat at the bar however. The girl at the bar was too busy talking to one of the patrons to help me much but I got my sampler and ordered a burger.
The food was alright, not bad but nothing to write home about. The beer was mostly average but there were a couple of exceptions like Slump Buster Mild, Tree Hugger Organic Chocolate Brown, and Vishnu’s Vice.
Moving around was difficult (walking to the bathroom or just trying to leave the place) as people were everywhere.
The sampler wasn’t priced too high and neither was the food. I think between the two my tab would have been $18. But then I got a bottle of the .357 Imperial Pilsner and Vishnu’s Vice to go and my tab came back at $40something. Good lord.
The second time was late and on a Tuesday night. There were 2 or 3 people at the bar and one table full of noisy drunk people, not that I have a problem with that. At least they were playing good music on the juke box. Got to try a nice glass of the Inner Sanctum IPA.
Would go back to try what’s new or if in the area.
My wife, her friend, and I ventured to Flossmoor Station in late summer 2012 for our first experience. The location is a unique train station style restaurant/brewpub/bar that is massive. I’m assuming they can seat 250+ people at full capacity. We went on a Monday afternoon so it was slower but the service was great. I tried a couple beers there and took one home with me to try. There certainly was a wide and long list of beers to choose from. The food was just as good as the beer, so I will be returning again in the near future!
Great place, first time here. Tuesday night, so I’m sure it was slower than normal, but good service. Food was very good, had the fish tacos. Of course their beers are also very good - about 15 or so of their own beer on tap. The 2 I had were excellent, especially the Panama Red.
The one time I went was on Bourbon barrel aged Hi-Fi Rye release day. Thus, it was f-ing packed, service was stressed and non-existent, and the crowd was pumped. Not a good atmosphere rate the restaurant but the beer was good and the 20 or so $1 tacos we got were a damn good deal for a hungry drunkard.
Quaint joint, particularly coming here just a few minutes after the altogether different vibe of Three Floyds. Nice little suburb, and a very cool idea for a brewpub. Handsomely appointed, excellent service. Sat at the bar, ordered up a salad, which was average. But the taplist was terrific, and I had a chance to try multiple brews I’d never heard of as well as some real treats! Definitely recommended and I’d look forward to going back if I had the chance.
A nice place in an old train station with a nice outdoor seating area. Food has been good every time I have been. Service is good but they aren’t overtly knowledgeable. Selection is good with usually at least a barrel aged offering. Prices are fare and it is worth a stop if you are down this way.
