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?

Yes. Use the reservation form at the bottom of this page to check table availability for groups of 3-8. Please use the form on our Groups page to inquire about groups of 8+.

Can I call-in an order to pick up?

Right now, due to staffing limitations, we’re not doing To-Go orders. We hope to resume in the near future.

What about outdoor seating?

We have a great outdoor beer garden that seats around 70 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.
