Now the last time I visited was many years ago, and I remember that throwback feel of the restaurant so I am glad to see that it has been updated. It seemed well received as well, as I heard other patrons also talking about the change. But the best thing here as it relates to the food is that it is all made fresh from scratch which is always nice. Too many chains and restaurants don't do that, and you can taste the difference. But away from the food and what I really came for was the beer. They have some very good selections with 15 taps on hand. I am not sure about the bottle or can selection, but I will be sure to check that out the next time that I visit.
So back to the beer, what did I drink? Well, since I was driving, I had to drink responsibly, so I limited myself to two. But, I opened with the Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA which was very pleasant. It offered a great mouthfeel and a nice citrus flavor along with a pine aroma. It went well with the potato skins. I then followed that up with Rhinegeist Chester which is a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. And let me tell you something, it is one smooth ale for sure. I'm talking a starburst of flavor with a very nice hop experience. It is liquid candy and if you get a chance to try then I recommend that you should, These beers in other locations would probably cost you between $5 to $8 depending on location, but here, they were only $4. That my friend is a value and that is not a special deal or anything. That is the regular cost. The food itself was just as good in value as well, and together made a great deal for an evening dinner. If you have not revisited this gem then I am recommending for you to do so. I am sure you will find something to your liking.
