Great Place, great people hang out. Not pretentious or too hipster. Mainly musicians, artists and people who really enjoy great beer.

Itís impossible to enter this place and not see the passion for beer this place has. Not only are the walls of the restaurant and the bar being covered with beer memorabilia, but so is the entranceway. The restaurant and the bar area are separated in clearly delineated rooms. I didnít check out the bottle list because the draft list was so good. They had over 20 taps including 3 theyíve been saving since 2009. They have such an attention to detail they not only the beer but what kind of glass itís going to be served in. The food is fantastic, reasonable priced, and very large portions. Iíll definitely be back.

The bar is in the back, beer drinkers should definitely head there to see all the taps. The place is covered in beer posters and the beer list is pure quality, split 60/40 US/Belgium. The staff at the bar is knowledgeable about what they are serving, which isnt surprising considering the beer list. Enjoy some Pho, a nice craft beer and the game on TV!

Sculpin IPA on tap at a Vietnamese restaurant? Yes. A Randell that pulls Stone Ruination through citra hops, ginger and fresh chili, at an Asian restaurant? Of course. You can only be at Mekong when you see these things. And by the way, the food is excellent. Oh, and the prices are terrific. And, of course, the staff is a riot, and they know a ton about beer. What more do you need? Itís nirvana.

This place is beer heaven. The next day you can come back for some Pho to cure the hangover. Brilliant!

I love this place. Good food, friendly.. and knowledgable service. Lots of parking. the only thing I donít like about it is that itís always so crowded, unless you go on a M-TH evening, early. Even so, the wait is worth it.

Thought Iíd already rated this. They work hard and succeed as making themselves a go-to beer place for Richmond. Great selection and decent prices. Physical ambiance is very basic, but it seems to have good energy. Owner takes to a bit of moderate celebrity and works it well. Servers are very efficient and can handle the mass confusion of a table of drinkers ordering helter-skelter. Nothing to complain about the food. Good for bar, groups, casual night out.

Visited for a late lunch, mid-afternoon on New Yearís Eve and was surprised at the relatively sizeable crowd. Quirky joint -- the feel of your average Asian restaurant, but festooned with breweriana. They had a rock-solid lineup of 12 or so drafts, including a Hardywood Stout run thru a randall with peppermint canes. Other than the one local offering, the selection was decidedly Belgian. I didnít look at the bottle list too hard, but it looked like it had a similar slant. We dined on some yummy food and had a great time overall. The beer was actually a nice complement to the spicy Vietnamese cuisine.

Any beer lovers, if youíre in VA. Have to give this place a visit. Was taken here by a co worker. I was BLOWN, SPEECHLESS. Never try soooo many beers in 1 nite. I was having a great time. Hint ( best beer experience is seating at the BAR) My co worker introduced me to a beer expert name An Mekong. He keep bringing us beers to taste and tell us stories of belgium trip. Food was awesome. I love Rocket Shrimp and clay pot fish. Service by An was outstanding. Best beer place so far. looking forward to next visit :))))
