Answers to Your Questions…

 

Do you allow kids?

Yes, we have an all-ages section, so you can bring your family with you to The Bistro & Beer Garden year-round. Our expansive outdoor beer garden, when it’s open, is also family-friendly.

How about dogs?

We allow service animals, but since we’re a restaurant, no pets.

Can I reserve space for a group?

Right now, with current restrictions, we can accommodate groups of up to five people. Use the reservation form at the bottom of this page to check table availability.

Can I call-in an order to pick up?

You can still call us to palce a To-Go order. However, the best way to order food for pick up is to use the “Place a Pick-Up Order” button at the top of this page.

What about outdoor seating?

We have a great outdoor beer garden that seats around 50 and is open when weather permits.

Do you fill growlers?

You can get almost all of our beers in growlers to go. We’ll gladly fill your existing growler, as long as it’s clean, or you can buy a brand new, Airways-branded one. Sometimes special releases or high-alcohol beers are served in pints or schooners only. We don’t fill growlers of guest beers or cider.

Where are you?

We’re in Downtown Kent, just south of Kent Station. The building is called “The Terminal” and we have our own parking lot, along with street parking.
