Cock & Bull – Mainstrasse

It was my best friend’s birthday a few weeks ago and she had her heart set on Brazenhead but, strangely, when she called to make a reservation, they were closed. The hunt for a new birthday restaurant began – we landed on Cock & Bull since it’s the same concept. Sort of.

Out of the 4 of us, my husband was the only one who has been to the Cock & Bull. I had not a single clue what to expect.

It’s definitely a bar first and then a restaurant – there are a million craft beers (I’m beginning to hate those 2 words…) to choose from. We were told that our wait for a table would be about 5 minutes. I’m still not sure if there IS a seating system but apparently we tracked down the right person.

Before we could even order a beer from the bar, we were parked at a table near the front door. It’s pretty clusterish in there.

I needed a beer – I ordered a Delirium Tremens

Beer

It was good. NOT $9.50 (yeah, you read that correctly) good. But, good. I would have been just as happy with a budlight or blue moon. (As all the craft beer followers gasp in pain…)

Since my best friend has a slight pretzel addiction, we got the pretzels as an appetizer.

Damn delicious pretzels – super salty, crunchy and soft. Yum.

Items we ordered…

Baked Cod with sweet potato fries

Fish’n’Chips (the bestie and I both got this) Lightweight version

I will admit. I hated the atmosphere. The service was subpar (she was on top of things but then just disappeared – took forever to get our check!). But, the fish’n’chips were some of the best I’ve had.

Now – the question is…would I go back just for that reason? No. I hated the chaos. I hated people bumping into our table. Service was uber slow. The ambiance sucked.

I can get fish’n’chips somewhere else.

One thought on “Cock & Bull – Mainstrasse

  1. Delirium Tremens is the most expensive craft beer (with the highest ABV content). It’s essentially the Dom Perignon of beer. It’s also the only beer Cock & Bull has at a $9 price point. Standard craft beers are in the $5-7 range for a 20 oz pint. Local, non-craft styles (Bud, Miller, etc) are at the $4 price point.
