Bube's Brewery Review

Dating from before the Civil War, Bube's Brewery is the only brewery in the United States that has remained intact since the mid-19th century. Three different restaurants and eight guest rooms are found on the grounds, mingling history with kitsch. The Bottling Works, in the original bottling plant, serves steaks, burgers, and seafood at lunch and dinner. In summer you can enjoy one of four or five Bube's brews outdoors in the biergarten. The dinner-only Catacombs serves traditional steak and seafood dishes in the brewery's candlelit cellars, 43 feet below the street. Themed feasts—Roman, pirate, fairy, for example—take place every Sunday night. In Alois, inside an adjoining Victorian-era hotel, you can participate in ticketed murder-mystery dinners. Upstairs, each of the eight rooms (which share three baths) is themed, from a jungle room complete with waterfall to nasty and nice princess boudoirs.

    Terrible Experience !!!!

    We were seating right away. We ordered the beer sampler which was good. We then ordered our appetizer which seemed forever to get, probably 30 min or more, we had the crab dip, which was nice. I then ordered the Cajun Combo, I asked for a loaded baked potato as a side, and she said ok. When I got the meal, the meal SUCKED !! Chicken was overdone as anything, the steak was pork (said they had to substitute) which was too loaded with Cajun seasoning which i couldn't eat, and the shrimp had NO TASTE at all. Worst of all, I asked why my baked potato didn't have any cheese or bacon on it, and server said that the chef would not allow it !!!! WTF !!!! REALLY ! My friends had potato skins for an app and they got bacon and cheese. I called for the OWNER and she didn't give a rats behind that I was unhappy. Honestly, this place sucks and will NEVER go back, please don't waste your time, the atmosphere is GREAT, but food sucks and servers are untrained. We had a party of 6 and most of us were unhappy and will NOT RETURN. What a waste of money !!!! I'm so bummed with this place, and I was really looking forward too it.
