First Things First, Eat some Food!

Sashimi grade ahi diced with avocado and onions in a sesame ponzu marinade stacked on wonton crisps, topped with julienne carrots, daikon & raddish sprouts served with creamy wasabi sauce and parsley oil. Here is what one of our guests had to say!

“The staff was tremendous… very friendly! Our waitress Nancy was hilarious and constantly around to make sure we had plenty of beer! This is a great place for a brew and food…. can’t recommend it enough!”
