Not bad food for what they were charging in Vegas. The waitress didn’t know the alcohol content for the Raspberry Wheat when I asked her about it, but she did make a point of finding out. It was noisy, but it was one of those places where the noise seemed to add privacy to your conversation instead of preventing it. In terms of the beers, I just got the feeling they really weren’t allowing anything to age long enough to fulfill any (moderate) potential.
Stopped in for lunch on a rainy day. Like the whale blowing fire logo for sure! Pretty big bar, easy to find to seats together. Service was SLOOWWWW, but friendly enough when you could get their attention. Taplist was pretty extensive, but it felt like a mega-Yardhouse, nothing really out of the ordinary; not a single sour, gose, berliner, barrel aged beer. I think the had a couple of saisons at least. I ended up with the Tenaya creek IPA, which was decent. Wife chose the Horchata Blue Moon, which was as you would expect. Food was decent - fries were crispy on the outside, creamy in. Steak salad was tasty as well. Wife thought everything was spicy. Perhaps that is the significance of the fire coming out of the blowhole in the logo? Prices, as noted, kinda suck, but I bet you can get a tick here if nothing else!
Large place on the way from Monte Carlo to Aria. Nice darker vibe, yet too large to feel cozy. Service was good. Prices typical for this part of town, Beer choices ok for some scooping.Did not eat, had a drink and moved on.
The biggest list of common beers I’ve ever seen? Talk about mundane. Prices that were high, even for Vegas, and at happy hour. Early in the day, so wasn’t busy. Had the very bad house pale ale and left.
Located on the Street of Dreams in the Monte Carlo casino. Ambiance is great, large bar and copper accents. Flights, large bottle/tap selection and local offerings. Food is "eh" for Vegas standards, but not bad. Happy hour specials.
Visited Wed. evening. Place was very much empty. Large selection of taps and bottles, I liked it because of the flight selection- choose 4 beers for $12 from a list of either local or other domestic beers. I had 2 flights with local crafts. I think this is a must stop for craft beer on the strip.
Lots of beers. Just what I was looking for but had trouble finding on the strip. The bartender was very knowledgeable about the beers and steered me in the right direction. Didn’t try the food. Beer prices were outrageous, but what do you expect?
I was skeptical that this was the right place at first since it was just called “The Pub” but the hostess confirmed that they used to brew beer on premise. Take one look at the sign and tell me you don’t want to go in. It’s a whale and below it is some writing: “Food you can’t forget. Drinks you can’t remember.” And the whale is blowing fire out of its blow hole. Inside the bartender was very friendly and let me try a local beer or two. I should have gone with the Sculpin but instead I got a pint of the Wasatch doppelbock. They actually have a pretty decent tap lineup. Probably the best of the places that I stopped. The wall behind the bar is glass and behind it are a bunch of kegs with the whale logo on them. This place would have been cool if it wasn’t for the weird lady sitting next to me. Oh, and my pint was $8.65. Ugh. At least I can in all honesty say “this place is whales, bro!”
