Fodor's Review

This ultrapopular destination with outdoor patio features an excellent and varied menu, including pulled-pork quesadillas, gourmet pizzas, and a killer spinach salad with Gorgonzola cheese, macadamia nuts, and strawberries. The best bet for lunch or dinner is the veggie slice and salad for under $9—the garden salad is generous and the pizza is the best in town. The beer-sampling menu offers a choice of 4 of the 10 available microbrews in miniature glasses that add up to about two regular-size mugs for the price of one. The Hefeweizen is excellent. If you're staying in town, purchase beer to go in a half-gallon jug ("growler") filled on-site from the brewery's own taps. The Growler Shack also sells beer by the keg.
