Old sort of dive bar with a crusty dude working behind the bar. Lots of locals in here chewing the shit. The beer list is pretty awesome in here though. They knew what they were pouring but they weren’t really interested in chatting about it. Still, I managed to kill a few hours in here and I would come back here in a heartbeat. Food is basic pub grub - cheap but tasty.

Laid back feel, above average tap selection and some bottles too. Food has been excellent each trip. Only thing that doesn’t hold up to the rest of the establishments positive attributes is the service at the bar a few times was less than spectacular. Day shift both times. Night crew even when getting slammed seems to be much more familiar with the selections available.

Very nice bar. Man was alittle slow serving us, but it was busy, he did a good job of pouring our pints. Lots of beers to choose from. Recommend a trip here for any beer lover.

The beer selection and food here are definitely fantastic. Service is very quick and friendly, if not the very knowledgable. Ambiance is okay, with some nice decor, however I’m not a fan of the college type crowd that you may find there. YMMV however.

This is the kind of place the corporations try to reproduce when building there chains. But what they never get right is the food, beer selection or the authentic neighborhood crowd.

Went on a slow Saturday night. Initially, service sucked but it got better the longer we stayed. The draft list was pretty impressive and it had many beers I was interested in trying... and that isn’t an easy thing to do. Food was very good - high end pub grub. I enjoyed this place quite a bit.

Nice old bar that apparently used to be a car show room. The bar tenders are fairly expedient and kindly, but not particularly knowledgeable about what they’re serving. What they’re serving is great - many taps of excellent excellent beer. The best part is a flight of 4 4oz’ers for $6. Score.
