Visited after work on a Tuesday for dinner and beers with co-workers. Layout is typical BJí, big bar area, big dining area and decent sized outdoor patio. Normal beer selection, along with 2 seasonal / specials and a handful of guest drafts. Food menu is standard BJís. Service was quite good. Overall, standard BJís, as they all are.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
itís a chain of "brew houses" (yes, Iím using that term sarcastically) that serves their own beer plus some locals and nationals. I found their beers to be competent, but boring. Wasnít impressed. The servers didnít bring our appetizers until after the entrees arrived, so Iím doubting the beer I had was actually the one I ordered.
The food is about as good as the beer. It tastes pretty good but donít let them fool you into thinking youíre eating or drinking something unique. It even LOOKS like a Chiliís, but they somehow have "microbrews"? HA! Itís California dribble, but again, it tastes okay to me. Service was good.
Not as nice as the Plano one. Kind of an awkward layout. Same food that is pretty solid though. They had nit wit on tap but I was there for lunch while I was working and apparently it is not cool to drink at lunch. What has the world come to?
The beers here are just average - bunt single mass appeal brewpub fare. Food was decent - I had the chili cheeseburger, and it was tasty but it killed me later. Onion rings and fries were crispy. The place is super clean, the atmosphere is industrial renovation/diner. Accessible. Good parking. A long, but quick jaunt from either Dallas or DFW airport. Selection of mediocre beers is good - 10 on tap, looks like a core of 6-7 standard beers with a few seasonal/specials. If youíre in the neighborhood, itís worth a stop.
I met up with Peter here when I was in Dallas. This is a large chain brewpub that I found rather similar to the Ram Restaurants. The bar was quiet enough when I was there to have a good conversation, the service and food were very good (typical large brewpub food, but well done), and the beers were a tad below average (but they had 8 on tap, so there was variety). Not a bad place, and Iím likely to drop in again if Iím in the area.
