A somewhat soulless place to drink beers. The house beers are at best pedestrian and at worst poor. The ambiance is alright, I guess. We didn’t eat on this visit. This place certainly isn’t a highlight of the Jacksonville beer scene, but I suppose it’s worth a visit if you want to tick beers from a brewpub or something.
Lived in Jacksonville for 18 years and never went here except once, before I was 21. Now here we are for RBWG, not sure why we stopped here instead of spending more time at Engine 15. The tap list is small, pretty much their corporate beer recipes on tap which are aliased to god knows how many brewpubs and other Gordon Biersch establishments. Beer quality was low for a brewpub, nothing I would say was worth drinking. Ambiance was dull, dead, depressing. Diners looked like they had all just been fired and divorced. Would not come back. Bartender was snappy to my fiancee, so there you go.
Did this visit when at bike week in Daytona. My daughter goes to college in Jacksonville and both of the above gave us a good reason to eat and talk. New location directly on a primary exit to a shopping area. Ninety percent food. Clean and well organized. Service was good and the sampler was well presented with a serving sheet of all the brews. Food was good and fairly priced for a resort style location. This is a better than normal corporate location.
Rerate Been there four times now - taps never change and they never have anything from their "special tap". They do nothing to promote their beer. Won’t go out of my way for this place again. Original I visited this establishment back in October, 2003 during lunch rush hour. The place was very crowded but we received good prompt service and attention at the bar. The bartender was knowledgeable of their beers which were above average for a brewpub - had about 6 on tap and all were decent. Has a rotating seasonal plus the usual brewpub offerings. Good food selection - had a very tasty cheeseburger which filled me up. Nice decor - upscale brass-fern bar type restaurant. Worth a visit if in the South Jacksonville area.
Located next to a big Hilton in what seems a business area with a theater next door.
More corporate feel, part of the Gordon Biersch chain.
Average beer choice limited to the 7 Bridges.
Didn’t eat there, but the food seemed quite appetizing. Not much ambiance to speak of, bunch of tv’s playing boring sports, dim lighting.
Service was nothing special, the big corporate smile that is supposed to make everyone feel at home with the autotbot repeating the 7 Bridges history.
Nice and clean inside.
Wow, nice looking somewhat upscale place and by far the swankiest brewpub in this part of the state. They had 6 house brew offerings during my visit. I saw barrels stored away in the room with the bright tanks. I’m guessing they’re barrel aging some of the beer. Very cool. It is a bit odd seeing the brew system high above upstairs. This is a pretty big place with dozens of booths and tables with patio options as well. I need to try the food next time I stop by. It looks really good. If I make it to this part of the state again I’m definitely stopping in again.
yeah, I knew what this was ahead of time but a place tick is a place tick. Pretty large restaurant, large bar. two pool tables and enough old creepy drunk regulars to keep it interesting. I ordered nachos thinking it would be something small.... it wasn’t. I’ll have left over nachos for days... which is not a problem. I only had one beer and is sub par, but that is all I was really expecting. http://i.imgur.com/TP9ht33.png
