Just seven weeks after opening, the well-lit parking lot at Ye Olde Brothers Brewery stays packed.
The new restaurant, which is easily accessible from Highway 87 South, is located in Holley, just a few miles north of Navarre.
“Go early to get a table,” Holley resident Jo Ann Timlin recommends, suggesting patrons try the pizza, which is cooked over an open flame in an authentic brick pizza oven.
The restaurant features a welcoming wrap-around porch with rocking chairs and a terrific view of the sunset.
Friendly servers offer a sampling of different specialty and craft beers called a “flight.” The 2-ounce servings of six beers selected from a menu are served iced cold. A variety of wines is also available.
Other selections on the menu include chicken parmesan and seafood recipes from Ron Schaffer, former proprietor of DaVinci’s restaurant in Navarre.
Word seems to be spreading that Schaffer is operating the establishment, which is owned by the Rolison twins – Jerry and Larry.
“I appreciate all the support Navarre is giving us,” Schaffer said.
Schaffer’s five decades in the restaurant business seems to be paying off. Former customers are driving in from as far away from Alabama to enjoy the food.
It’s definitely worth the trip.
