The food here was so disgusting. The positive was that the servers were nice and the beer was ok. I would not go here for food, skip it and go somewhere else.

Such an awesome brewery. Beer was excellent. Food was delicious. Met the owner Penny and her staff, they were fabulous. Definitely will be back. Thank you

Normal PVB is a solid choice. Tonight I ordered the Jumbalya. The staff obviously used bad shrimp. Despite the rancid smell they brought it to me anyway. I've never sent anything back to a kitchen EVER until tonight. I had to move the plate to a table across the isle as it was nauseating me. Lived in Louisiana and ate tons of jumbalya and shrimp. Whatever PVB made me tonight was not edible and I'm sure would have given me food poisoning. This plate smelled like the shells of shrimp after sitting in a garbage can outdoors at the 95 degrees and 100% humidity. They took the plate and the smell lingered in the room until we paid for our beers and left. Really really disappointed.


We were there for food, and it wasn’t fantastic. It seemed like they took simple food and tried to make it fancy to match their inflated price point

Beer was top notch! I had the Scotch ale. The Philly cheese steak sandwich I had was good but the waffle fries that came with it were kind of hard and dry and kind of lacked seasoning. The location had a cool industrial vibe similar to other brew pubs I've seen in the past. Good experience overall.

I didn't get to order my takeout. I stood for a few minutes in front of the hostess podium reading through the menu watching the waitress bustle about... there was two tables it looked like she was taking care of. No one at the brewery took notice that I was there. I then read the sign that said to "seat yourself" so I did.... and waited. And waited... and waited. Then a big ol' family came in and the hostess IMMEDIATELY jumped to help them. I left. I felt very unwelcome and received NO service. I just wanted a sandwhich... and if that hostess is reading this, I would have tipped you better than that whole family more than likely.

Recently drove in from NM and met my parents here for dinner. What a treat! We love the old building and the welcoming vibe the place has. We had a really great dark beer (hard to find in the summer) and the food was fantastic. I had the mushroom burger with a salad and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. My husband had the Philly Cheese steak, which was stacked with meat and cheese. He said it was delicious. My parents each had a salad and split a quesadilla, which they said was just perfect. Our server was brand new, but was very attentive and took care of details like bringing an extra plate for the split meal and making sure we had everything we required. After a long drive this was just the evening we needed! We'll definitely be back next time we're in town!

This little brewery was great. It is kind of out of the way and industrial, but the service was great, the variety of beer was good, and for a non-beer drinker like me, it was nice to have seltzer and cider options! The food was great! I wasn't as much of a fan of the pretzel, but we didn't get cheese on it and should have. Overall, we would definitely recommend.

Food was decent and we enjoyed our waiter. We were some of the only patrons in the restaurant. After ordering and waiting at least 20 min, if not more, we were informed that they didn't have lasagna. Our kids were super dissapointed. We ordered the pasta dish and asked for no red chili flakes. After about a 45min wait the pasta came with the added heat and very little apology by way of the wait staff or restaurant management. At least comp a dessert for all the snafus!!

Got a to go order from them which was a meatball pizza and a family salad I believe. The meatballs were so dried out that you could not eat them I had to take them off. I don't know if that was because they were old or because they were overdone but not edible. I paid seven dollars for the salad like I said.I can't remember if it was a family salad or side salad or whatever it was. But the salad came in a Styrofoam cup,coffee cup with a lid. For seven dollars. It probably cost them $.10 I'll never go again because of it. Probably shouldn't of even put a salad in there.

Expensive and then refuses to help local fund raising. Shame on the owner for boasting locally owned and pretending to be part of the community.

Cool vibe, great beer, tasty burger, and attentive servers. What more could you ask for? Oh pet parking? Yes! (On the back deck).

We came here while driving through on our way up to Yellowstone. We wanted a place with a patio since we had our two dogs. We called ahead of time and they mentioned they had patio space but it wasn't covered. There is an awning but it closes when it's windy, which it was that day. The train depot is also right there and it's pretty loud. Since it was so hot, our waitress was so accommodating and let us sit in the very back booth with our fur babies!! The inside has a bar type vibe but play good country music. We ordered a 14' large meat lovers pizza and a half order of the jambalaya. The jambalaya was definitely not authentic but it was pretty damn delicious. It was white rice with an amazing sauce. They hit the spice and flavor on the head. It also had the usual chicken, andouille, and shrimp with veggies! Amazing. The pizza was okay, it definitely wasn't my favorite. It tasted better the next day. I liked the thick crust, I just wasn't a particular fan of the tomato sauce. It had an odd taste. I also wished for a little more bacon. It was good though! Would definitely come again for how accommodating and for the amazing jambalaya!!

You gotta go-- vibes immaculate and the owner is incredible. The flight is all of their beers on tap. 10 beers 10 dollars and food is great. Everything made in house just WOW

We ate dinner for the first time here and it was amazing. The kids got pizzas and everyone was thrilled (clearly homemade and delicious). I cannot recommend the spinach salad with bacon dressing enough- the best salad I have ever had! Good service. The owner was on site and very involved.
