This place reminds me of the English pub in the movie American Werewolf in London only darker and smaller. Seems like everyone knows everyone and they all know alot about beer. The waitress is always patient with me as I scan the menu for 20 minutes and write down what bottlles I want in my 6 pack. They let you mix and match bottles and give you a 7.00 discount if you buy 6 (haven’t been there in a while-it may be 12.00). Highly reccomended!
Small dedicated parking on the side of this place. Atmosphere is like the other locations, reminicient of Cheers. Service was good. Pricing was above average. Did not eat the food. Selection was above average, but nothing crazy. Bar was busy on a Wednesday night. Not sure why these places are so highly rated considering the selection during my visit.
Stopped in here on a Sunday afternoon. Nice mix of locals, nationally known and imports. Flights were pricey but four 5½ oz pours. The atmosphere was sort of a german/old European look. The server was knowledgeable. Not much else around this area. We blinked and missed it at first.
When I visited: Late summer 2012.
What I had: Duck-Rabbit Amber Ale (draught), Flying Dog El Dorado Single Hop IIPA (bottle), Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout (bottle), Jerk BBQ and Mild Wings, Double Dipper, Fish Eye Pinot Grigio for the wife.
What I liked: unique atmosphere, like going to your grandparents’ house, private and comfortable booths, chalkboard tap list can be seen from almost anywhere in the bar, nice crowd, robust beer menu with many Belgians that I had never seen before, tasty pub grub, waitress was very capable in describing the beers on offer, was great to try Duck-Rabbit after hearing so much about them in Beer Advocate.
What I disliked: American taps, while good, weren’t as exciting as expected and the prices are a tad high. Still a first-rate beer bar though.
Would I go back? Without question.
Overall Rating: 90
In terms of beer selection if you’ve been to one sharp edge you’ve been to them all. Lots of Elgians but not much variety between the locations. The food is solid and the prices less so. This pub is located in an old house which adds a lot of ambience.
Part of the "Sharp Edge" chain of local restaurants that specialize in Belgian beer. Food is good but pricey. Beer also is good... also is pricey. The Belgian selection contains all the usual options and a few unusual ones, the American craft selection is good and usually features a few rarities. The Creekhouse has a strange layout in that it is a converted private residence. What’s the opposite of an "open floorplan"? This is it.

excellent beer selection for internationals, fewer microbrews. Very good food. Can be a very pricey evening out, but usually well worth it. I really enjoy the ambiance of the creekhouse too, very nice building.
