Recently had an excellent meal there. Normally don't eat in the dining room because you can't get a burger and fries. Parents and Grandparents were in town so I made the sacrifice. Happy to report that my meal was as good, if not better, than the usual bar fare. We started with the duck meatballs with calvados sauce. So moist! Even my picky DH was impressed. Perhaps he just saw meatball on the menu and overlooked that they were duck. :)
For my entree, I chose the ozzy (house beer) brined chicken over polenta with brussel sprouts and chesnuts. This dish was perfect. Would not change anything. I should add that I never order chicken because I like to try new things and chicken always seems so ordinary. Kudos to them for making a stand out chicken dish! Portion size was big too; could have had leftovers if I wasn't such a glutton!
Others at the table had the steak frites, butternut squash ravioli, and tuna. No complaints and clean plates all around.
While my DH and I enjoy the hipster vibe that Brewers gives off, my parents/gparents enjoyed the architecture and fine food/wine selection. A great place to take guests.
