    Loved getting a flight even though I am not a huge beer drinker - was really fun to try different things. And the tuna and salad were great, but the pretzels and cheese appetizer was the real winner!

    Like every other place, they appeared to be a little short-staffed, which caused some fairly long delays in taking our drink orders and in getting the check. The server was obviously being run ragged, but otherwise doing a great job. It was Sat. dinner time in the outside tent - you just have to go with the flow. Food was great, as always. Ambiance is classic beer garden. Gotta love it!

    The pizza is excellent. The ambiance is easy and fun. What little service there is ; ( you order both food and drinks at the bar and it is then brought to the table), was uninterested and lacking. I would prefer table service so that I can just relax with my party and not be in line for food and drinks .
