Back rating. Visited on a Friday, but it was still early so it wasnít very busy and half of the tables on both sides were empty. Thatís why Iím surprised the service was so slow. Had to keep flagging down server and would see her just standing and talking to other employees and not paying attention. Super friendly and nice, just not very attentive. Food was superb, beer list was insane, and price and value was decent. This and Blue Monk are great places to go.

I will rerate this at another time, as I was there my only time for the Barleywine Festival last weekend, and didnít sample their food. But from what I saw I was very impressed, and hope to make it back downtown for dinner. Met Mike at the festival, and quite enjoyed the time he spent with us, trying the beers himself, getting acquainted, just discussing good beers. When youíre ready to open your franchise in Akron, Mike, you let me know!

Favorite bar ever...bartenders and servers are always friendly and helpful, selection of beer goes on and on and on...where else in Buffalo do you have to decide between Orval or Rochefort? Classic bar that has been there forever and will always be

Finally made it over to Coleís and holy crap they have some great beers on tap! Their draft list is about 20 long, including 5 designated to beligian ales. thereís restaurant seating, bar tables and a packed bar. it was pretty packed when we stopped in but we had a beer at the bar and they got us a table in 15 minutes or so. had some great burgers and wings and a some great weizens! definitely worth checking out. i might hit it up on a weekday to avoid the crowds. plus, drafts are $3 on wednesdays!

Laid back feel, above average tap selection and some bottles too. Food has been excellent each trip. Only thing that doesnít 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.

Good beer selection, about 50 taps that change often. Beer list is usually out of date though. Bar tenders are friendly but not beer experts. Food is okay but nothing great. Prices are reasonable.
