The Arsenal is the 200-seat restaurant & bar housed within the brewery, Bluejacket. The menu, crafted by Executive Chef Kyle Bailey of Birch & Barley and ChurchKey and Chef de Cuisine Dan Hahndorf, updates, refines and extends the classic fare of beer halls and public houses by featuring the best locally sourced products available and highlighting house-made specialties such as charcuterie, fresh pastas, alongside whole-roasted meats, hearty grains and seasonal vegetables. A menu of gourmet sandwiches, house-ground burgers and bar snacks is the perfect accompaniment to a signature Bluejacket brew.

"This was my second time going to The Arsenal at Bluejacket and each time we've found the food to be mediocre. Our first visit was when the restaurant first opened and the food reviews at our table were split. This visit everyone found their dishes to be a let down. The lamb burger was tiny and the buns were a bit stale. Other dishes had little flavor or were just "ok" as summed up by people in the group. With that said, the service was great each time we went and - of course - the beer list is fantastic. Some in the group went the mixed drink route and were very satisfied as well. So, like the title says, maybe skip the dining and head straight to the bar."

"My wife and I have been before, and perhaps I forgot about the noise, but at times it was hard to carry on a conversation with yelling. The noise level of the restaurant is quite a bit higher than I recall. Also, the tables seemed closer together than our previous visits. If you don't mind the noise and the traffic of a busy restaurant, the food and service are fantastic. If you're looking for a quiet place to enjoy a romantic meal - I'd look elsewhere."
