Introduced friends to this restaurant and they enjoyed it, too. Food was great, enjoyed speaking with O at the bar, and our waitress was very nice. We really like the variety of options and the paella is better that elsewhere other than our favorite place by the beach in Spain! We plan to return.

This was our first visit to Jekyll Brewing Woodstock. Our server Malcolm was superb, accomodating my wife's special request, and the food was excellent. The beet salad that both my wife and I had seemed to need more beets for the price charged. We look forward to visiting this venue again soon.
