    I went to take my dog for a walk and we were very close to this place. but because it was going to rain I only had one beer. Big patio. i hope to try the food next time.

    Winter stop

    We offered to self serve from the bar so we could sit outside. I mean, since it's December, I didn't want to assume outdoor service. Also, we just came by for a drink, but they came out with a dish of water for our dog which was much appreciated! Never ever has our dog drank out of a "public" or offered water dish at a patio, etc. She's funny that way, but for some reason she drank from the one offered here. Anyway. We had a perfect pit stop with Millie yesterday!

    Perfect Place For Paws ❤️

    First time taking my beloved Chuckie. It was like he was a guest just like I was. The employees treated us with so much kindness. Chuckie got his own water bowl and a special treat. We will be back for sure!

    What a find!

    This place is marvelous. Huge outdoor seating area located far enough from the street that you don't feel like you're going to get run over. Great selection of craft beers and menu items for carnivores and vegetarians alike. Love this spot.

    Good Food and Beet

    Loved the grilled romaine salad and Burgoo. Our dog was welcome on the patio. Great music! Parking by Slugger stadium or right out front.
