This was my first visit to a WOB. I’ve been reading about them for some time...so when I had a chance to visit one on my recent Texas beer & business trip...I didn’t want to miss the opportunity. I’m guessing this has been repeated over numerous WOB location reviews...but yes...this is a bit of quantity over quality feeling...although in all fairness...and as the bartender explained to me...WOB focuses more on a large variety of bottle beer rather than draft beer (the opposite of the Yard House chain). As a result...there is a better chance that quality will remain at least moderately high vs a chain location with a huge tap count. The food is good although fairly typical chain bar food (try their homemade OMG chips and the grilled cheese). The WOB chain is a nice addition to the beer scene in a TGIF kind of way. You’ll love it when local one off craft beer locations are unavailable...but this is not a destination place in spite of the large number of beers (try other better chains for that like Yard House, Flying Saucer, & Taco Mac).

Did a "West Side" of the Metroplex tour over the weekend - and the WOB finished 3rd behind Gingerman FW and Flying Saucer FW. The primary reason was "quantity" over "quality" of taps. Lots of Guinness, Boddingtons, Harpoon, etc. A grand total of two taps from Deep Ellum, Peticolas, and Lakewood. So I figured I might find a bottle "amongst the 500" that I wanted. Nope. While the others had Southern Star Pro Am, not here. Didn’t see any Ballast Point Sculpin either. Again lots of quantity. Quality? OK, but nothing spectacular.
Hear these guys will be opening off Greenville Avenue soon. I wish them luck - but the beer bars are WAAAY better here than in South Arlington. Might want to be a little more creative in your tap selections.
Service was pretty good btw. And while they do not serve food, they were very quick to offer menus from other restaurants in their strip mall that would deliver directly to you. So I raised their overall rating for the fact that I had a lot of food choices.

what an awesome addition to South Arlington! loads of fantastic brews on tap and then loads more in the bottle that you can purchase from their racks! only drawback is that you cannot purchase bottles and leave the premises (most WOB locations allow you to do this). nonetheless you can belly up to the bar, pick a cozy sitting booth or table, or head out onto the patio to enjoy some fantastic beverages. and feel free to order in some food and dine while you drink. great staff & management! don’t miss out on their special brewery nights!!
