Lovely interior. Waiter was friendly but not very knowledgeable. They were out of some of the beers on the menu. Menu is shy on "normal" food - mostly eclectic tapas style. Great music.

Came here for dinner on a Saturday night. Our party Was seated at the huge wooden table in the front where we could be as loud and as drunk as we wanted. Couple of good beer rarities coming up on the menu. The atomosphere is sort of dark restaurant vibe and the food is full of traditional British dishes that have been ramped up. Overall a good time however not that great on prices.

I visited on a recent business trip and was impressed with the overall experience. The place was busy and had a good atmosphere for a Tuesday evening. The main attraction is the 40 taps of beer which had a good range of US craft brews on like Stone and Avery, as well as some Belgium brews (a particular standout was St Bernadus Abt 12) and even Brewdog Hardcore IPA. The bottle list was pretty extensive, but I did not delve far into it. The music was also pretty decent (mostly rock) and the staff were friendly, if not a little over-attentive. A bit of a let-down was the food which looked great, but always contained a weird ingredient or two that didnít quite work (e.g. a bucket load of cayenne pepper in a chocolate pudding...). Overall a great place to visit for atmosphere and the beer range.

This is really an upscale Flying Saucer & whatís wrong with that? I was slightly disappointed in the selection. Oh, it was good. Just as good as any of the FS locations. I was just hoping that I would be able to get some brews that I couldnít find anywhere else in Texas. Alas, there was nothing there I couldnít get at other good beer bars around the state. They do have a pretty good selection of booze too, if thatís your thing. The areas where it has it all over the other bars is really good food (mostly) & decor thatís almost too nice for a beer joint. I liked it. But I was hoping for more ...probably unrealistically so.

While this place doesnít have the largest number of taps, they specialize in bringing only the best beers in. Bud Light and Heineken are no where to be found, and you are guaranteed to find several top notch (95% and up) beers lurking in their tap and bottle selections. They also rotate taps fairly often, so weekly visits will often yield a changing beer list. Ambiance isnít the best as it appears as though you are just inside another random restaurant; no patio or scenic views exist. The interesting part is the restaurant is decorated with a number of local artifacts that detail the social history of Dallas in the past few decades. Food is highly acclaimed, but seems overrated to me in the few times I have tried it. Service can be spotty as the bar tenders are not bothered by empty glasses piling up on the bar or tables. Additionally, parking is limited (valet only, otherwise scarce street), the bar area is actually quite small as most of the area is dedicated to the restaurant, and it is not the easiest place to get in and out of if you wish to travel in any direction other than north on 35E. I definitely poke my head in once in a month or so, but due to the few nagging problems, I will not be a regular here.

This is a really nice fun place with a big tap list and decent bottle list. Iím hard to impress when it comes to bottle lists, and this one wasnít super impressive as far as rar go, but as for a place with a lot of good beer options this place is certainly right there. Good food, and a variety of options to please a variety of people, good carnivore and vegan options alike. My grandparents and parents both enjoyed the atmosphere and the vibe, not to mention the food.

This place was great. Stopped by on a Friday night, and it was pretty dead. Still had a cool vibe to it. Good selection of taps and bottles. The food was good as well. Had the burger. The beers seemed reasonably priced, but the food was a bit more steep. It has a nice patio too. Since I didnít have a Texas ID, I had to íregisterí at the door with my name and address. I guess itís just another ridiculous local beer law, but I was not expecting it in the heart of Dallas.

Very nice beer bar/gastro pub in the Oaklawn area of Dallas. The bar features 40 taps, with some that rotate and others that stay on permanently. The food is upscale and a little expensive, but most of it is pretty nice. Some of the plates are basic such as fish and chips and burgers, while others are more adventuresome such as sweetbreads with bacon jam and bone marrow. Other offerings such as the cheese plate and pork platter are way overpriced for what they offer. The bar taps rarer casks and kegs on Wednesday. Past tappings have included Stone IRS aged on American Oak. There is also a large wine and spirits menu if that interests you. A newer place, but one that has great potential.

Very upscale looking interior. Restaurant table section and a nice long bar in a sectioned of area. Only seemed to be 25 or so taps, but apparently there are 40. Two beer engines (cask). They also serve hard liquor and wine. Didnít try the food, but have heard mixed reviews. Selection was good by Dallas standards, and they did have a rarity on cask when I was there (Stone IRS on American Oak). I have no doubt that they will continue to try to bring in the best beers that TABC and the distributors will allow. Parking is valet or street parking. I donít often find my self in this part of town, but the few blocks around the Moth have undergone a gentrification process compared to the rest of the area.
