This is America at its finest! 2 eggs, biscuits and gravy, fried potatoes, toast and GOETTA for $6.95. Full of local color and ambience galor, as well as plentiful cigarette smoke, this place is a must when traveling down the Ohio riverbanks.

Best pizza period. Awesome family restaurant with great atmosphere & killer food! Make sure to try to the pizza burger! Also they have wonderful vegetarian: vegan options too!
I was pleasantly surprised by this local pizza joint. I called in a pick up order on my home from work. Everything we ordered, bread sticks, pizza, and Mac & Cheese bites, were delicious and ready when I arrived. The service over the phone and in person was very friendly. I used a restaurant.com gift certificate, which they accepted without a problem. Combs is officially our pizza place of choice.

I apologize for the length of this review ahead of time. If you are looking for a fancy place this is not it. However, if you are looking for a place with caring owners who make their food and drinks from scratch with as many locally sourced ingredients as possible you need to try this place. This is the kind of thing you see on Diners Drive ins and Dives. First of all the building: it is a historical building and is not in the best of shape. Don't let the former 2 star review throw you. When the reviewer said it's in a seedy part of town I'm not sure exactly where he was looking. This is Aurora Indiana. It really doesn't have seedy parts. They call it a tap room not a restaurant and that is exactly what it is. It is one large room with tables set around and a bar with taps at one end. You walk straight up to the bar place your order and then sit down and wait for them to bring it to you. While you are at the bar I highly suggest you talk to the guy taking your order. 99% of the time It is going to be the owner. He is extremely knowledgeable about their beers their food and pretty much anything else you would want to know about the place. Here is something that blew me away. I wasn't sure which beer to try so he gave me a free sample of each and let me decide the one I like the most. Try that at your local restaurant or bar. Ask them if you can get a sample of every beer they serve before making a decision. Like the reviewer who gave 2 stars I wasn't real fond of a couple of the beers. That's because people have different tastes. I found three that I love. Giving this place a 2 star because your taste is different than other people is really kind of silly. But I digress. The beers are all made in-house. The soft drinks are made in house. The barbecue is smoked in house. The sides are made in house. The dressings are made in-house. The sauces are made in house. They make their Portuguese sausage in house. All using as many locally sourced ingredients as they can. You can't go to a chain restaurant or someone who is buying things out of a bag and heating them up and get this kind of quality. Like I said it isn't fancy. You will get a bag of potato chips as your included side with any sandwich. I have tried the Cuban sandwich and the pulled pork. Both are very high quality meat with a great smoke ring and smoky flavor. Even without the sauce they were very good. They have four sauces that are also good. Strangely enough my favorite was mustard with cut up jalapenos and some spices. I'm not even a big fan of mustard but it was really good. I have also tried the beans and my son love the corn bread muffins. While we're on the subject of the beans I don't know how they make these but I really need to find a recipe. I will probably ask on my next trip. I don't know how to describe them exactly. They have the appearance of bean soup basically but when you eat them they have a combination of that taste with baked beans somehow. You can taste both the sweet smokey bacon flavour but also the Great Northern bean soup flavor. I have no idea how this works but it does. I really don't see how you come in here not enjoy it unless you're expecting a 5 star dining experience. This is good honest food and drinks made very fresh at reasonable prices. The only drawback is they're only open 9 a_m to 2 p_m monday to thursday and 9 to 9 friday and saturday. If you like friendly places that serves very high quality food cares enough to make all of their drinks in house and has owners who truly appreciate you coming and do everything they can to accommodate you while you were there, I'm not sure how you could possibly not like this place. The only warning I would give is a very small one and that is that their lime soda is very very sweet. but some people like that so that is certainly not a complaint. that is a personal taste issue just letting you know. Try this place!!
Walking into a brewery that you have never been to before can be daunting. There's a moment when you have to look over the beers and decide what you want to try and you hope to do so without bothering the staff to much. The last brewery I went to before this one was mount Carmel and the staff there made you feel like you were imposing big time. Not here at great crescent. The owner (or one of them?) greeted us and told us about every beer and gave us free samples of each. The beer was great but I was even more impressed with the service. It was like he was having fun telling us about his business, it's history and his beers. I could have talked to that guy all day. The food: I had the pulled pork nachos and the wife had the chicken bacon sandwich on a pretzel bun. The pulled pork had a awesome smoked flavor. Hard to explain but it was great. The wife's sandwich was amazing as well and that pretzel bun was amazing. We bought a glass before we left and our tab was very small compared to most breweries. I would love to see expanded hours. Would like to bring friends here for some late night drinking. I will definitely be back! EDIT..Deducting a star bc they got rid ony my facorite food here. the pulled pork nachos
Very good pub food. Excellent craft beer. Neat space in old warehouse. Stop by and talk to the brewers. They have a good story. Take home a 4 pack of their delish beers. Can be a destination or a side trip on the road.

Stopped in with husband and friend on the way through town, hungry and ready for a nice BBQ dinner. One waitress working and she was nice enough but very very slow. In fact the place had very few customers but we waited forever. Food arrived and I could see across the room that even still on the tray it looked bad. Ate it anyway, my mother taught me to be gracious, but have to say it was the worst BBQ ribs I have ever been served. Bland gray meat, no sign it had seen a grill, mac and cheese was the same boxed stuff I feed the kids, dried out corner of a corn bread square, the whole thing well below par for a BBQ joint. Even drowning it in sauce didn't help because sauce was flavorless too. Would have had a better meal at McD's with their pressed meat BBQ sandwich. Run away fellow Yelpers!
How this place stays in business is beyond me. Had the pulled pork sandwich which tasted like propane. Had been wanting to try for awhile, very sorry I did. Only took 50 minutes to get my order and there were only 6 others in the store. If you want bbq around here get the pork from the grocery at least it's edible.
If this review was for the fried chicken it would be 5 stars ! I'm a big BBQ fan so I ordered the rib dinner. When the bone came out of the meat when I touched it I knew I wasn't going to be impressed. The ribs had a flavorless rub on them and were steamed or slow cooked entirely too long. I was not a fan of their homemade sauces either. Each was very sweet. I think too much basil and cummin in another. The "hot" sauce had no depth or flavor to it either. The wait staff was great and friendly and the prices were average so no complaints about them. But if you have a hankering for some BBQ - this wouldn't be a place I'd go to again.
