I went there for lunch. There are no rare Redhook beers here--only about 6-7 beers. Also, the food is slightly high, and the service was very slow (took 1.5 hours for lunch, and had to almost scream at the waitress to get more water). Food was mostly good--the chili is the best deal for the money. They have no fryer (they would be prosecuted for this in the south), so no fries with the burgers. And of course the day I go has to be a day when all tours are cancelled.
This place has better food than beer. If you don’t like any of the Red Hook beers, you’re out of luck. The resturant and bar is like the Olive Garden or Applebees of brewpubs, it just seems too fake. On the other hand, the wait staff is very nice and you can always take the daily tour for $1.
We were in the area, and had a coupon for the tour..so we went for it. This place is exactly like the Woodinville, WA location we toured 2 years ago, I’m told they even used the same blueprints when they built it! The brewery tour is not a "must see" but, interesting none the less. The Cataqua Public House at the brewery had beer selections as you would expect...all Redhook. Also a decent food selection as well.
