Stopped in here around 11 AM for lunch. Street parking wasnít difficult to find, and it was free surprisingly. When we got here we were able to be seated right away. Our waitress took awhile to come see us and get our order. The place was not busy, so this wasnít really something I understood with multiple people working the few tables that were occupied. Anyway, I tried to order a beer and was told I could order it at noon. I donít get this because I could see several others with bloody maryís, glasses of wine, mimosas and so on. Maybe itís a New York thing. They had a limited menu as well. Fortunately they did have what I wanted on their shortened menu. Wings! They are supposedly famous for them. Wing expectations must be low if thatís the case. Overall, overpriced bar food, unfriendly service, not much to draw a person in except they did have a nice tap list. Unfortunately I wasnít allowed to have anything from it during my visit.

Awesome piece of Buffalo in the Elmwood Village. Motown music classics piped thru the place. Started in 1934 and you can see the history all throughout. Great tap list and lots of bottles. Amazing duck burger- a must try! Do not regret visiting this place at all!!

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.

Very nice looking and clean place. Good selection of beers.(even though the 2 I wanted that were on their website were not avail.) The Hopsickle was fine though. Good selection of bar food. All our fries were cold as if waiting on the plate awhile for the hamburgers to finish cooking. The wait staff was very attentive. We had a good time here.

Stopped in for lunch on 7/1/13. Townie atmosphere with most patrons seeming to know the bartender quite well. Decent tap selection, and I went with the GLBC/Deschutes Class of 88 Smoked Porter. Good menu of burgers with wagyu beef an option for nearly all of them.Burger was tasty and cooked pproperly and the fries were good. Service was pretty decent.

Very good beer selection and large food menu with many daily specials make this one of the destinations for craft beer enthusiasts (the other being Blue Monk). Often have special cask nights (Ballast Point) with rare offerings.

Have been about a dozen times. Looks like your typical pub inside. Others at the bar were fairly talkative. Service was fairly good. Tap selection is good but not quite at Pizza Plant or Blue Monk level. Enjoyed a couple Ommegangs. Parking in the area is pretty tough to come by on weekends. Bruschetta burger was pretty tasty.

A half mile up the road from Blue Monk. The taplist here is mostly (if not entirely) US beers, but they still have a great selection to choose from. I did not sample the food, but they were clearly doing a pretty brisk restaurant business.

Went here mid to late afternoon to beat the heat. Crowd at the bar was locals chewing the shit. Large selection of american brewed beers on tap save 2 imports. Service was good an attentive. Beer served in proper glasswear. Food was standard pub grub but well prepared. A bit pricey but all in all a cool spot.
