Brunch was very disappointing. I had the "Better than Waffles" Chicken Tender/French Toast alternative to Chicken and Waffles, although I cannot say with any certainty that any chicken was actually on my plate. The "tenders" I was served were stringy abominations coated in funnel cake batter, with the largest tender being no more than a half-inch wide despite being as long as the plate itself. Unless you are intentionally cutting your chicken to resemble flat noodles, I do not understand how or why you would find this appetizing. The sum total of all chicken on my plate had to be less than half of a breast. This was all served on a bed of soggy, eggy French toast that, while filling, reminded me more of late 90s Nickelodeon "slime" than something I should be eating. Despite my sub-par and wholly unappetizing brunch, the beer was still good and the service was average or above. I enjoy coming to Rebel Kettle for dinner and beer, and will continue to do so, but will steer clear of their brunch menu for the foreseeable future.
I think I know which bartender John Metcalf is referring to. She spent most of her time chatting with customers at the other end of the bar. A couple of times, she sat down at a table to visit for a few minutes. She gave me hurried pours with too much foam in them, then she rushed back to the other end of the bar to resume her chatting. I was at Rebel Kettle one other time, and sat at a table instead of at the bar. Our server took our order, and then never came back. We repeated our order to another server, who took much better care of us. Rebel Kettles beer is good -- the best Ive had in Little Rock. But its overpriced. They charge $6.50 for twelve ounces. Ive been to brewpubs all over the country that make beer as good as Rebel Kettles, and that price it far more reasonably. If I were rating Rebel Kettle just for their beer, I would give them five stars. But I subtracted one star because of the poor service I received both times I was there, and I subtracted one star because their beer is overpriced.
The Food is nothing to get excited about. The Cajun theme food is a fairly untapped menu in central arkansas, which is the reason I go back. I do enjoy the beer and size options. The only deal is the last three times I went there, they only had two different beers available. I get the small batch brewery, but surely a little planning so you actually have beer to serve in your restaurant is a good idea. The service is absolutely horrible unless you go on a Sunday when they have a small menu and no one is there. I have been 5 times, and its nothing to have a 3 hour meal because of empty glasses or waiting on food to come out. I will say I did have one experience that was good because they had all their beers available. its a definite try once and come back to occasionally just to see if they improve their service. For me, its time to ease down the road to find one of the other breweries to be a more frequent hot spot.
Great tasty beers, very attentive and helpful staff, but their hamburgers that night were not as great as they read in the menu. Very dry and no taste. Maybe it was that night I hope. Sitting arraignment was also an issue. They had a table reserved but no one sat there in the two hours we were there so our group of 5 had to separately eat at the bar. Also, of you are going to have heaters outside for cold days make sure they all work.
This was our third time to visit rebel kettle brewery. I have never been able to get a FULL PINT of beer, and the same was true yesterday. Apparently the hoppy beers always have a very high alcohol content. Moving on..... The pork sliders contained pork meat that was gray, tasteless, and tough. Every bite guaranteed to stick between your teeth. I realize that they are a brewery but the food has always been sub par
Beer was amazing. I enjoyed each beer I had and love the 8 oz option. Was wanting to try the food, but the bartender girl felt like socializing with the guests at the end of the bar instead of serving anyone else. The rest of the bar had empty glasses because of the inattention of this bartender. Left to go toLost Forty for food. Atmosphere and beer at Rebel Kettle is great, work on the service
Small brewery with a fun atmosphere, and limited menu of pub grub with a "cajun" lean including the free popcorn. Surprisingly they do not offer flights. Instead you can sample for free and then order 8oz glasses for around $3 and build your own. Staff was great and prices are way cheaper than Lost Forty down the road. However the quality of experience and offerings is also below Lost Forty.
I visited Rebel Kettle brewery for the first time last night. We wanted a new spot with outside seating. They have A LOT of outside seating! We were on picnic tables in the back yard with fake grass as our floor. It was adorable. Such a fun atmosphere and the beer was delicious. I wish I hadnt ate before going because their menu looks amazing. Great service too, will be back soon!
They experiment, something I did quite a bit as a professional brewer. The traditional beers had no technical faults and had a great complexity, which was awesome! Some of the more creative beers had no technical faults but I thought they could use a bit of tweaking. Staff was awesone. Taproom and brewery were very clean. Theyll rock it and continue to do so. vOv.

The bar keep was not very friendly and when I told her I like dark beers recommended the worst of the dark beers. Luckily one of the servers save me when I asked her what the best dark beers was ansd that is the only reason Im eating them as high as I am. Why on earth do the only allow 4 samples I wanted to try more to make sure I got one I liked.
I cannot think of another brewery in the entire region that offers the variety of amazing beer that Rebel Kettle does while also having a great kitchen with excellent food options, as well as a large outdoor patio area. You simply have to stop by and try some of the best beers to be found anywhere! They also have bike parking available!
Im going to keep this review simple. Go there! This new brewery just recently celebrated their one year anniversary and theyre doing a kickass job. Great beer, clean/airy/modern atmosphere, and top notch service equals a formula for success. If I lived here this would be my regular spot.
This is my favorite brewery!! Love the food, love the beer, and always have a positive experience with the waitresses. My favorite aspects: they let you try free samples, and you can order an 8oz beer, which I love because that means I can try more varieties!
Rebel Kettle is a WONDERFUL LR find! Im all for a place that gives free table popcorn! Diverse beer selection and great Cajun influenced menu! One of my new fav regular places! The Crawfish dip and anything with chips will be great!
Great find! Visiting Little Rock on business I stumbled across this Craft Brewery and found the beer, food and staff to all be a cut above. If I ever return to Little Rock I will definitely find time to return to the Rebel Kettle.
