We went on Mother’s Day, a bit early for warmth and flowers but manageable. My first impression was what is all the hype about, but after we ordered our wines and ales, all being delicious, and our breakfast brioches and kielbasa it all came together and we had a wonderful time. Can’t really rate service as you serve yourself.

Awesome place. Second time here and will definitely be back. I don’t know how I went so long without knowing it existed! Good selection of beer/wine and the food is delicious. The outdoor space is especially nice and the staff makes you feel like you’re visiting an old friend. Can’t wait to come back!

Cute spot on the hill. Unfortunately it was raining and could not appreciate their garden much but there are large windows and we could still have views of the garden. Food was good, too. Would like to go back when it gets warmer.

When ordering brunch, our order was misheard. We thought we had ordered 3 egg sandwiches with bacon but instead got 3 brunch burgers. Food was delicious regardless. Do wish they would read your order back to you since it is hard to hear people talking with masks on.

The Euro Birger was delicious!! The few that ate the chicken snitchzel said the chicken was tough with little taste. We surely missed the sour cherry syrup added to our beer. Love the outdoor deck and the staff let us let us sit after dinner to enjoy our drinks. Definitely recommend this spot.

It was a gorgeous spring day so we made reservations to sit outside for lunch, it got a little warmer than we expected so we asked to move to a table that was more shaded and they were so accommodating and nice about it, I really appreciated that. And we got to bring our dog which is always a plus. The food was delicious - recommend the pretzel bites with cheese, it’s the best you’ll ever have! Great service, great food and drinks, and great atmosphere! Would recommend over and over again!

Pretzel bites and bratwurst brought back memories of travel in Europe. A warm welcome preceded our lunch, including a spot for our small dog. Recommend we will!

The Hill at Muza is a charming, intimate, out of the way place that if you didn't know it was there, you'd walk right past the door that leads up the stone steps to the inviting outdoor space. This place is great anytime. Perfect place for date night. When the weather is a little chilly they have outdoor heaters and there is a small seating area inside as well if you prefer that. The food, the surroundings and the people are so welcoming and inviting that you may not want to leave.

I highly recommend their weekend brunch. There's both sweet and savory options. I personally recommend the Challah French Toast with a side of their smoked bacon.

Love this place! The effort to keep everyone sitting outside nice and toasty is great, from the cushions provided and the placement of heaters everywhere. Food and beers are always on point and were exactly what we were in the mood for when we went. Will definitely be back again soon!
