Came in on a Friday night for a fish fry. Place was busy as expected and we waited about 20 minutes for a table. Fish was good, but I have had better. Place is lively and nice atmosphere - worth checking out at least once.
As others have posted, the wait is long on a weekend. They do take reservations for 5 or more. Have a beer while you wait and relax. We went on a Friday night. I had the baked cod, which was very large, it came with a very nice salad. I was honestly expecting iceberg lettuce, but I got lovely mixed greens, red onion, and perfectly ripe cherry tomatoes. My hubby had the meatloaf, which was large and tasty. The couple we met both had the fish fry. The portion was hefty. They upgraded to potato pancakes and we're glad they did. I would definitely try it again, probably on a weeknight.
I still think the prices are strange. I go to a lot of restaurants, and this menu just doesn't line up with the area. Prices are too high for some items: $13 for a 10-in. pizza at a brew pub? This isn't Transfer and $10 for a pretzel when they're $7.50 at Old German Beer Hall? I also have an issue with some of the up-charges. It shouldn't cost an extra $1 to get the specialty beer cheese sauce with the pretzel. If you want people to try it, include it. Especially at $10. And an extra $1 for sour cream with nachos is just silly. But some of the prices seem too low. My husband ordered the pulled pork sandwich for $10, and I got the Mexi-Cali (I think that was the name of it) burger, but with a black bean patty for $12. Since when do black beans cost more than pork? I've never seen that before. So why 2 to 3 stars? The food we had on our recent visit was really good. The service (our server was Brandy/Brandi?) was perfect. My cocktail, the Weiss-car was good and we split a beer sampler which was a great value - $8 for 8 samples, and gave us an opportunity to try all of the beers, some of which we really loved. The Sloth (brown ale) was my favorite. And guys, the patio. It's outstanding! The chairs recline just a bit and make me want to stay forever.
