You will not find a better selection of Wisconsin craft beers on tap in the area. They added a few "nitro taps" this year, ask for a sample and you'll be glad you did. Hand made burgers and pizza are fantastic. The best thing are the owners and staff; Keith, Sara & Todd are friendly and welcoming.

We have been coming to the Hayward area for over 25 years but never knew about this place which opened up 10 years ago. It is the only place that has a Thai chicken wrap in a desert of ethnic food up north. The night we were there they also had fish tacos which is not usually what you find here. Both were fresh and well prepared. The Thai chicken wrap had a nice bite to it. Instead of fries we had a side salad which had mixed baby greens. Be sure to have the homemade cranberry vinaigrette. Staff is friendly and attentive. Mixed drinks are good and well priced. They have a good number of craft beers and you can order a flight of beer to taste four of them. We will be back.
