Strip mall location with HUGE lettered sign is a bit cheesy, but inside this place has a nice, if slightly contrived corporate feel. Big rectangle bar in a large room with the with the namesake limestone walls along the far end. Prompt, friendly service. We only had an appetizer and it was underwhelming. I’ll be back to sample some food and get more of that tasty IPA and look forward to seeing how this place develops.
We eagerly awaited their opening for well over a year. Food is good but a little pricey for what you get. Beer has ranged from slightly off to quite good. I feel that the Indian Boundary is the best that I’ve had but my daughter who goes there with coworkers on a regular basis says that their seasonals have really become the thing to get.
Located in a strip mall, which I had reservations about. Once you get inside you would never know. Two stories, large bar area, stage, and a sort of mead hall / old inn vibe. Very nice. Beers displayed on the standard large chalkboard and 5 oz flights of all their beers are available. The menu is on the small side but the food is decent and the prices are fair. Bottle and tap list represents some excellent midwestern selections. Nice place I will be back for sure.

This is a remarkable place for being so out-of-the-way. If you are in the area you really should stop by Limestone. I was overall impressed with the ambiance and felt that if I were to design a brewpub of my own that it would be nearly identical. The staff was friendly and pleasant, and knew enough about beers to answer my questions. I tried the Ukranium Krusher and Oatmeal Stout while I was here, and I must say I am still kicking myself for not picking up a couple growlers to bring home. For food, we simply had Bruschetta to accompany our beers, which was very fresh, delicious, and obviously made from scratch - a great thing which is too often lost these days. Overall I really enjoyed my visit, and hope to go again soon. With my fiancee living in Plainfield, I don’t see that as a problem ;)
Visited on a weekend evening. A brewpub in a strip mall? The place looked nice enough inside. Lots of people were there and there was a band playing. They had nine of their beers on tap. There were all pretty decent. Didn’t try the food. It’s an all right place... not a big fan of the late night vibe this place gives off though.
Checked this place out for lunch on a Tuesday. Sat at the bar and had a flight of 6 4oz beer. Had a couple of appitizers and a bowl of the soup (great beer cheese soup). Place is out there,but since there is no competition around this place should do great. Nice clean, new place, does remind me of an upscaleish Rock Bottom. Service is awsome. View from bar to tanks (brewing at the time I was there). Lots of TVs. Food selection is minimal. What I had was pretty good. Selection of beer is above average, 6 house brews, 6 other tap beer including Two Hearted, Reds Rye and others. Bottle selection good. GI BCS, Old Rasputin, some belgian brews and other. Nice overall.
Nice spacious area, lots of t.v.s, area for a band, but first most, some of the nicest, friendliest waitstaff, workers that I have meet. I went in to just do a flight of their beers. Bartender was friendly, knowledgable about their beers, and made you feel welcome. The oatmeal stout wasn’t available when I ws there, but that just gives me a reason to go back again. The beers that I did try where tasty. I saw a nice selection of guest taps and bottles. I wish them the best of luck.
