Sports bar feel and ambiance here. Fairly bro-ey. Had a rotating selection of local beers on tap, though when I tried to get a Westbrook One Claw, the bartender said "party foul" when it turned out to be kicked. Pretty much set the mood for the evening. Not a terrible place, but not something is necessarily seek out again.

Actually didnít plan on going here due to the so-so rates but we walked past and thought why not. Very glad we did. As expected the interior has a sports bar feel, but donít let that put you off as the beer more than makes up for it. This is a great place to get COAST and Westbrook seasonals that donít hang around for long. On our visit they had Westbrook Mexican Cake & Gose! Brilliant. Staff were rather friendly also. Well worth a visit.

Large sports bar style place, aimed mostly at the college crowd, but interesting enough for adults too.

One of many solid places within close walking distance on or around King Street. This place was basically just a sports bar in ambiance, and catered to the college crowd quite a bit (at least during the duration of my visit). Decent tap selection for sure, heavy on locals. Enjoyed some Westbrook and Holy City but didnít stay overlong, as the ambiance was a bit of a drag.

Came in here on a Wednesday night to catch a game. Good for that- plenty of screens around. L-shaped bar with some booths and tables. Game tables in the back. Slow night- C of C was on break. Good tap list; 8 local handles plus more regional and national craft taps. Solid list. Didnít try the food. Prices were fair. No small pours but 4-beer samplers were poured. Great location on King- only issue is parking. Overall a solid place to get a beer. Worth checking out if youíre in the area and have time.

Longer L-shaped bar with a sports/college bar vibe. Pop-a-shot and some pool tables in the back. A good amount of local beers with typical craft favorites. Filled up with college kids on a weekend night when school wanít even in session, I would imagine this place gets pretty rowdy when school is in session. Pretty cool place, not necessarily a craft beer "destination", but if youíre bar hopping in the area itís definitely worth stopping in, and if youíre looking to party and get weird, Iím guessing this is a good place to do it when school is in session.

Decent sports bar type place with some good beers on tap but nothing too special. Nice local beers though.

Hit this place during happy hour on a recent trip to Charleston. Typical sports bar with lots of tvís and a few pool tables. Good selection of craft beers on tap. Mostly local stuff, though. I didnít eat but they had some tasty sounding wings and good prices during happy hour.

Iíve stopped in for a beer and found EVERYTHING halfway decent on tap was tapped out. I hope they consider a new beverage manager. A decent ambiance to enjoy a beer at the bar. The have TVís for sports enjoyment. Usually pretty crowded on the weekend. A bar that could stand to raise the craft beer bar on upper King.
