I love the decoration of this place - a high vaulted room with a balcony and pillars supporting the room. Like a very classical restaurant with a modern decoration. The service was premium, not just in the bar, where I sat in the busiest lunch hour, but the manager of the place also spotted me taking notes and came over to talk (and even gave me my drinks for free), and later he sent the brewer over to me. Just a great experience. The steak I had was wonderful. They had 6 beers on tap when I was there ranging from boring (the light lager) to wonderful.

Nice steakhouse. Had great (if pricey) seafood and steak entrees. Also less expensive fare more geared to kids if thatís what you are into. Lots of great beers on tap.

I visited this on the RBSG pre-tasting afternoon pub crawl. I limited myself to the Bourbon stout, but after reading mjames rating, I realize I should have had the Hefeweizen. Typical brewpub atmosphere.

I think this place has the same floorplan as the Des Moines, IA Rock Bottom... it also resembles the Walnut Brewery in Boulder. Overall it has the same features of Rock Bottom places, shiny this n that, wood everywhere, long polished bar, but the beer quality was lacking for the most part. The Bourbon Stout, which is supposed to be one of the best beers made in DC, I found almost undrinkable. The oatmeal stout was close behind. However, I found the Hefeweizen to be spot on for the style, rich, juicy, appropriately tart, just wonderful. The waitstaff was decent, they forgot to serve us water on a 100 F day, but during both times we visited over the weekend the brewer was hanging out at the bar and talked to us for a while.

Beer available, July 2006: Bourbon Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Hefeweizen, Light Ale, Amber Ale, Brown Ale.

Didnít get to eat here, just went to the bar. Nice sort of classy upscale steakhouse/brewpub kind of place. The bartenderís service was very good. Smoking allowed, I donít really care but it should be noted. The beers were solid.They could use a little more variety but they had a representation of some of the more popular beer styles. Worth a return visit.

Great location. Hip, young crowd. Excellent steaks. Good ventilation. Their bourbon stout was the beer that re-started the whole barrel aging trend in the USA back in the mid 1990s. One block away from the Verizon Center.

Friday lunch hour in May 2006: Nice semi upscale restaurant with a nice menu in a well restored historic building. I had low expectations for this Rock Bottom affiliate, but the three beers I tried were all the way good. The bartender was all over it, too. Liked it.

Visited on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2005. It has the feeling of being a very old place where lobbyists might go for a steak, whether or not this is actually the case. Good chalkboard with lots of data (O.G., abv., etc.) about the beers--a sign that they take their beer seriously. Reasonable service, the nicest thing was that they left me alone while I read the paper and rated my beers. They were distracted doing interviews for new bartenders anyway. I didnít eat there. The downstairs private room, next to the clean bathrooms, looked nice. The beer selection was fine--a nice bonus getting a bourbon stout among the offerings. A decent experience, all things considered.

Went here on Monday, September 5th, 2005 with argo0. We sat in the bar area and I got a good look at the interior. Seems like an old style building and was uniquely set up. Our waitress was good and the beers serviceable, but the food came up a bit lacking. The onion soup was ncie but the tuna came out a little burnt and had to be sent back. Based on argo0ís experiences, this was a "bad herring" and not typical. Iíll give it the benefit of the doubt.

This is a great brewhouse in downtown DC, right near capital hill. The food is pretty good, as is the beer.
