We stopped in for a beer on our trip and found the establishment to be nice. There are two floors so if the upper is packed head downstairs for a cozy spot near the fermentation tank. The bartender we had was very kind and attentive.

Went with a friend and had a iced tea, she raved about the beer. Their appetizers are really good and they compliment any and all of their beverages

Went here looking for a casual fun night out. The open seating plan is fun as everyone is in a good mood and makes for a fun atmosphere.

We love going to Gritty's with the family. It is a relaxing, local environment that is inviting...especially in the winter time. Their food is consistent but the beer is really why we go.
