As Friday evening came around, my wife and I decided to visit the new restaurant in Deer Park. Masters Brewhouse was opened on the 28th of December by Jeff and Tiffany Masters. If the crowd was any indication, then the Brewhouse is already a popular destination for many people. Masters Brewhouse is located in Park Plaza behind Zip’s. It is a no-frills eating establishment that offers appetizers, salads, and soups, along with a variety of sandwiches with fries and brats with fries. You also have a section in the menu that allows you to build your own brat sandwich with multiple choices of meats, cheeses, and toppings. The menu also lists over 15 types of beer on tap.
On this night, my wife had a loaded BBQ Chicken sandwich, while I had a Four Cheese Grilled sandwich. My wife had coffee to drink and I had one of the beers on tap, a Huckleberry Pucker. Our waitress gave me a small glass of the pucker to sample as she said the “Pucker” part of the drink’s name was real. The drink was great. It had a definite fruit flavor with a memorable smooth bite.
The Brewhouse has an eclectic atmosphere with a combination of concrete brick, rough wood, and shiny metal on the walls; a 20 foot ceiling, bare cement floor, and 2 inch thick slabs of wood for tables. These industrial materials work together with lowlights and contemporary country music to create a casual and comfortable neighborhood feel. The Brewhouse will seat 70+ patrons. This particular night the place was nearly full and yet did not have an uncomfortably crowded sense. This is the kind of place that you could come to just for an appetizer and a beer or a full meal.
The kitchen, which is somewhat hidden, appears small. That, coupled with some of the wait staff being new on the job, caused a bit of a wait before we were served our meal. In future visits here, I would suggest ordering an appetizer which will fill the time waiting to receive the main entree. The food was nicely presented and hot. The tastiness did not disappoint. Another feature of the Brewhouse was a large shelf that held a collection of games, some of which were kid’s games. It was easy to see that this was a popular item with the young kids who were there with their parents.
Primarily based on the casual atmosphere of the restaurant, I would give this a four fork out of five rating. This place will be a great addition to the community with its great food and diverse tasty beer selections.
