    Had a good time at River Rat. Got yo pick out a great flight line-up and they were allowing for food order from your bar tab. Both the beers and the food were excellent.  more »

    Stopped in on our way home from a long trip. My girlfriend likes trying new beers wherever we are so thought we would check out what a Thursday night was like here. The beer was pretty good. Staff was knowledgeable, hospitable and funny. The crowd was laid back on trivia night. It was dark and cold outside but I'm willing to bet the b patio is pretty awesome too. If you like local and you like craft, check it out.

    Nice atmosphere but a little loud even with few people in the main area.

    Good beer, great outdoor area. Very friendly staff and a good selection.

    Pros: They make ok beers only if you have a low bar for beers. Cons: False advertising on their over priced oyster roast and BBQ event! Oysters are nowhere near fresh and beers are 4 times more expensive than advertised. Unfriendly staff does not care what they put out there. So please visit here and be ready to bend over for them!
