The restaurant brand is known for quality American comfort food, ample craft and international beer selection, and rock and roll. The menu will feature a robust selection of signature dishes and regional favorites ranging from mouthwatering wings and a giant Bavarian pretzel, to premium burgers and sandwiches and center-of-the-plate entrees including tender roasted chicken and ribs. All dishes are made to order and prepared with the freshest and highest quality ingredients available.
A highly social “U” shaped bar will feature cocktails, wine, and dozens of craft and international beers, with several taps dedicated to craft beers from local breweries. Dining will be available indoors and al fresco on dog-friendly, covered, heated patios. One patio will offer adult games, lounge seating and fire pits. Another will be dedicated to little rockers with a play area including small picnic tables -- where they can enjoy fan favorites off the kids’ menu -- and outdoor televisions, play equipment and wall games.
