Typical restaurant/pub feel when you first walk in, with a pseudo-hipster vibe, and a beer loverís backbone. Service was great; very knowledgeable considering how much was on tap. We even had seen our server earlier that day at Underdark release day. Selection was impressive to say the least; more than 80 beers on tap and a bottle list of rare and vintage stuff. Food was great, typical pub fare with a modern American swing. Value was average, what I expected to pay for what I ordered. Overall, a must stop on your way through Jacksonville.

Great place. Usually 84 taps and about 500 bottles however they are under construction expanding the place. Not their fault. They had 20 drafts with some locals like Green Room and Innovation. Not bad. Bottle list was huge but the 7 or 8 I wanted were all offsite in a cooler due to construction. Decent appies for food. The bartender (Cassy) was awesome. Very attentive, friendly, helpful. I will be back after the construction is complete.

Very casual....good beer and food. The selection has been scaled back due to a renovation project that has taken over their storage space. Iím basing my review on a previous visit which revealed an extensive selection.

Maybe I went into this place with too high of expectations, but I was not all that impressed. The beer selection was ok, but considering how high it ranked in Florida I expected much more. The beer was good, but nothing too rare or out of the ordinary. My server was horrible and I used to be in the service industry while in college so I tend to be understanding, but it was awful. When I asked for what was on tap the waitress gave me a hand written list of maybe 20 beers. I know they had more than that, but it seemed like pulling teeth to find more out from the waitress. Once she took my order, she never came back. I had to get some one new every time I ordered a new beer. The beer that they did have is decent for Jacksonville, but not one of the top places in Florida. Itís sad to say this, but the World of Beer in Jacksonville arguably has a better selection. The only saving grace for this place was the food. I need to check this place out again. Maybe next time itíll be better and Iíll update my rating accordingly.

A little cramped and dingy inside, but so much beer on tap who cares. And the food is pretty solid as well. All kinds of awesome rotating stuff and hard to find beers, at reasonable sampling prices as well.

Itís difficult for me to rate this place as itís undergoing some serious extensions/refurb works so has a reduced tap list. Anyways.... Kickbacks is a cool, laid-back bar with a focus on quality beer. Tap list is (usually) extensive and varied. Bottle selection was interesting and large, but you will have to shell out big-time for some of the more limited stuff. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Food is tasty classic American bar fare. Entertainment comes in the form of Danny Rowland who can be found in the bar some 24 hours a day! A top-quality beer venue. Looking forward to revisiting in the future.

Glad to spend a couple hours here on a recent biz trip. If I lived in Jacksonville, Iíd want to be here all the time. Nice neighborhood vibe, eclectic clientele, unpretentious surroundings, and an absolutely massive tap list. Waiter was super cool, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and Iím happy I just went with dudeís recommendations throughout. Didnít have any food besides some sweet potato fries, but my host assured me the menu was tip-top pub grub overall. Really impressed overall.

Visited during RBWG JAX. Great atmosphere, lots of good to world class beers on tap, spot on service. The food I had, their chicken wings were really tasty. I understand they had some special beers on for RBWG, but Iím an convinced they have a great selection normally. I was surprised Jacksonville had a beer spot this impressive. Definitely worth a visit or two.

Busy, bumping gastropub with a shit ton of good to very good taps in downtown Jax. Visited as part of the RBWG Jax welcome dinner so may have gotten a little bit better than normal treatment. They also had tapped many special beers for our coming. Only had potato skins to eat which were solid but had heard some good things about othersí food. Small taster snifters available on just about everything which was killer for ticking. Would def return when back in town.

World class. Came here for the RBWG 2013 welcome dinner. In pretty much every regard this place is outstanding. The draft list is massive, with something like 85 beers pouring. On our visit they put some extra special beers on, which was great. The bottle list, too, is extensive; I believe it spans more than 50 pages. Great food options, well made, delicious. Prices on beer and food are exceptional. The service was impressively attentive and efficient. Spending the evening here was easily one of the best beer experiences of my life.
