Food was good, menu selection was decent. We made a reservation so we were seated immediately. Easy Saturday night date with food then movie...

The food and service were good. However, I was disappointed in the drink selection. When I was there previously, they had a larger variety of beer, including several floral or fruity varieties, neither of which they had this time. I turned to wine instead and the selection again was very limited and not of a higher level I expect at a restaurant.

The food was good but service was slow. Also, the ambiance is fairly loud and combined with the loud Halloween music made it difficult to have a full table conversation without speaking very loudly. They also made some menu changes -- some good and some bad. They need to bring back their tacos.

While on the whole I didn't dislike the restaurant, I can't say I liked it enough to want to return.

The food was pretty good as was the service. On the night my (7yo) daughter and I dined there was a live band playing covers which was a cool new experience for her.

Things that were a disappointment were they were out of several beers (most or all of which would have been something I would drink) resulting in me ordering a glass of wine.

While the food was tasty, however the portion size was somewhat disappointing in relation to cost.

Having a reservation really didn’t matter we still waited which I understand. However we saw our server maybe twice the whole time we were there and the food was greasy and not great. The manager and hostess were great, but we will not be returning.

This was our first visit here...food was very good with he exception of the rice/beans that came with tacos. They tasted like they came out of a box. Service was a little slow but it was crowded Saturday night. Prices were reasonable and overall we enjoyed it and would come back.

Noticed this restaurant on opentable because of the good reviews. Although it’s connected to the mall which I don’t love, the space itself is well done. When we sat down and mentioned it was our first time there, the manager said he ordered us some nachos on the house — great touch! I thought the food and drinks were very good overall and the service was spot on. Would definitely go back!

We were seated right away at a table within the bar area. It took a few minutes for us to be greeted by a server. Which I found annoying because it’s hot out and I really needed a glass of water, we ordered wine and water and got wine before water and the wine pour was a little lower then I had remembered from a previous visit... Again the waitress took awhile to stop by for our friends drink ordered that arrived a little later then us, again we had to ask for water refills, we had to stop her to take our order. We ordered 4 apps as they were a special BOGO, bbq nachos, cheese curds, truffle fries, and pork belly sliders. All the food tastes amazing and we were really happy with our choices but our constant need to flag a server down for water and to get our check was annoying.

Good home brew beer. Food was decent. Service was decent. Not a bad place to watch sports, have a beer, and food. Appetizers a bit pricey.

The food was very good. My kids got plain hamburgers with gf buns, my husband got a Johnny Brisket sandwich and I got the Impossible burger with a gf bun. Everything was delicious. Only downside is there was no special for Father's Day (there was a special on Mother's Day).

Food was good but service left much to be desired. Our waiter kept disappearing and someone who wasn’t our server finally took our bill we’d been trying to pay for 15 minutes. Wasn’t super crowded either.

That was our first meal there (we had a coupon)....and while we are not beer drinkers, we thought the food was great! I had their smoked ribs and my husband had a burger. Also had their truffle fries. They do their own smoking inhouse. There were TVs around the bar with sporting events but it wasn't ridiculously loud. They also had a nice outdoor seating area that a lot of families took advantage of so their kids could run around in the adjacent grassy area. We will definitely be back!

The food and beer were really good and we’ll definitely go back for that. The restaurant was absolutely freezing and we were all super uncomfortable and left without ordering another round of drinks.
We were celebrating a birthday which was in my reservation notes and we also told our server. Nothing was done to acknowledge the birthday which was disappointing.

First time there, was better then I expected! Been to a few breweries where the selection was limited, not the greatest atmosphere.... 25 West was very casual, great after work place. Food we had was really good! Waitress was attentive, friendly and knew the brews! The beer was quite tasty! I enjoyed every one of the flavors in my flight! Of course the night we went was trivia night so lots of noise! But overall, really liked it! As a matter of fact, getting ready to go back for a couple of brewskis!

We gathered many friends and family (all ages) to eat, drink and support my nephew’s music (Grant Milliren Music) as he played at 25 West. Waiter Brendon and his crew were very attentive and food came out hot every time. We closed the place too! The atmosphere (lighting, decor, bar layout) is a welcome addition to our neighborhood and there is an option with outdoor seating too.

First and last time going here. Menu looked great so we were excited. Ordered a burger with a side salad substitution and avocado. Also ordered another burger with chili. We didn’t want fries and we were not told of any up charges when we asked to substitute. Food is just ok. I felt nicked and dimed for everything. My wine pour was definitely not a full glass of wine. Literally took 4 sips to finish. Will never go here again - not worth the price. Food was basic and the atmosphere was loud. Any substitution cost at least $2 - why are fries the only option? $3 for a very small cup of chili; not worth it. $2 For adding avocado and $3 for a plain small side salad. We walked out not happy and felt ripped off.

The best Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner I’ve had in years and also the Pulled Pork sandwich was very good. They were out of two or three beers, of course it was the ones we wanted. The music was very loud but enjoyable. Our party of four all agreed we will go back.
