175 beers on tap, 150 of them local, specializing in burgers. How can this be a bad place? Well, it can. What is the point of having so many beers on tap, if you don’t have any in stock? It took me about 3 orders before I picked a beer that they actually had. The idea of 175 beer choices is awesome, but they need to keep up on refilling these. My other thought it, I hope they have a handle on cleaning out those taps.
We ordered calamari to start with. The server then said, “I am going to bring you out some bacon. It is $3 and you will each get a piece”. Ummm, okay. Thanks for asking if we wanted this bacon. The calamari came out and it was exquisite. There is no better word to describe it. The sauce that it was tossed in was tangy and not overpowering. It was laying on a bed of crispy rice noodles and bell peppers that were also drizzled with the same amazing sauce. I could eat this calamari everyday. The $3 bacon came out and I grabbed a piece. They were limp. I like my bacon to be crispy, but this was just a thick cut of fatty bacon. My fiance loved it, but I thought it was awful.
We then ordered our burgers. I went with the classic, medium rare with american cheese. I asked what the fresh vegetable side was and the server stated it could either be a squash medley or brussel sprouts. She didn’t seem to make any effort to find out which it was when I asked, so I went with the french fries. At this point the server had already forgotten about a beer that we ordered and pretty much forced us to buy bacon. The burgers came out and I started to chow down. The meat was nowhere near medium rare. It was a good solid medium to medium well. I continued to eat it hoping that maybe once I got towards the center there would at least be some pink. No, no pink. I wasn’t in the mood to complain, and really gave up on this place being awesome at that point. I have spoken to a few others about this place and they all have the same issues. In theory this place could be fabulous, but really, it isn’t worth it.
