The only thing that I could ask is that there be a little more comfortable option than only the metal stools. We would have stayed longer but our backs were really hurting after a couple hours. Everything else was wonderful.

We went to see a musician. There were people talking loudly and it interfered with hearing the musician. I also find it rude when people talk when someone is playing. Would be nice to make an announcement at the start that it’s a listening room when people are playing

Intimate setting. Live music was great. They offer pizza from a different restaurant so it isn’t theirs to rate but it was good and their service was good. Friendly, fast and up beat. We went for the music, I’m not a beer drinker so I shouldn’t rate it. But that is all they offer is their own beer. I would go again if someone I wanted to see was playing. I would probably go without the music if I liked beer.

Music and drinks were fantastic. Food selection was very limited and Disappointing. Even just having appetizers would be nice such as wings, Fried, charcuterie board, etc.

A cozy, casual little place that has quality on site brewed beer and cider complimented by excellent gourmet pizza delivered to site by the Stone Pizza folks down the street. It has a friendly vibe with excellent staff.
