  • We enjoyed our time at Right Brain. The atmosphere was very cool. The 6yr old liked looking at all the art. They had board games to play and room to get up and dance. The food and beer were decent, no...  more »

  • If you just want to try unique, quality beers but don't have much of an appetite, this is your place. I ordered a flight of 6 beers (5 oz each) for $15 and liked all of them a lot. The beers are very interesting from cream ales to beers brewed in pig bones. There are also more traditional beers as well as a decent selection of IPAs. No complaints at all about the beer. Don't come here hungry. No one in my party liked their meal. The menus are tiny with only 5 or so sandwiches, a couple appetizers, and burgers. Even so, they ran out of 3 items on the menu that many of my party were set on ordering. We started with the sausage and cheese platter which was ridiculously tiny for $12. Avoid this item for sure. For the entrĂ©e I was stuck with an onion garlic aioli burger which, like everything else, was served on a waffle. The aioli had no flavor whatsoever and the burger was overcooked (they didn't ask how i wanted it done). The other members in my party had varieties of sandwiches and burgers and everyone thought the food was subpar. Definitely skip the food here except for maybe an appetizer of chips. The atmosphere is definitely unique. There is no service here; ordering is done at the bar and you take the drinks back yourself. The food is delivered but that's about it. The place is all one large room with a warehouse feel and lots of noise. The decoration is all over the place but i think that's the point. The workers are all younger with many piercings and tattoos which is indicative of the usually crowd here. It's not a very comfortable place for the family, but definitely interesting for a night out. They have live music some nights and it's 21 and up after 9.
  • Great place to meet up with friends and have good drink's just didn't plan on seeing Planned Parenthood there doing trivia LMFAO!
  • Cool space with many truly unique beers to try (my husband tried the Mangalitza Pig Porter, brewed with pig heads and bones, and while animal-based beer isn't my thing to say the least, I have heard they do it well.) The waffle sandwiches were yummy, as were all the beers I sampled!
  • First time I ever had a waffle-based sandwich. It was delicious, but kind of pricey. The atmosphere here is fun and somewhat family oriented, which is weird for a pub. Gotta try it if you haven't been.
  • I love the chill vibes here! The beer is great, and I had an awesome grilled pb&j! There are board games, and pinball machines to play while hanging out!
