As others have said, you go here for the beer. Best selection of Baird in Tokyo, which means a lot of fine choices, and with the drink card it works out to 750/pint, much better than the usual 1,000 in the rest of Tokyo.
However, there is room for improvement regarding the service. The food selection is fair, but small plates leave you hungry. Better to get dinner elsewhere.

I have been here once and still not sure what to make of it. For starters, the place is located in a business mall district (which is probably great for business but deducts massive points for atmosphere). The place is brand new so it really doesnít have that broken in feeling. Thereís no blood on the walls yet. The beer selection is...well, itís all Baird beer so if you like Baird beer, then you should go here. But I preferred the small town joint feeling of the Numazu Taproom.

Good place to try Baird beer. not my favourite Ji Biiru as I tend to think they spread themselves too thin but good beer none the less. The place is well decked out. Nice place. I agree that the place could have been set out better as its just one open room. Otherwise good for a few. UPDATE. Service can be downright rude here - and often choices are left on the board even when they are finished. Seems odd - the other taprooms are excellent for service and availability. Also my comment about Baird should be taken with a grain of salt, the quality (particularly the seasonals) has improved a lot over the past few years.

Beers from Baird brewery on tap is the only reason to come to this place. Beers are quite expensive, even their sampler. The brews I tried were OK, but nothing great.
Food is made with beer as an ingredient, which is usually a plus, but this was also pretty ordinary stuff.
Interior is all light pinewood and brass. Itís not a pub - itís a taproom. The room is very open so youíre on display whereever you take a seat. Atmosphere is tense and uncomfortable.
I had maybe expected a bit of enthusiasm from the staff, this place being so devoted to a single brewery, but that seems to have gotten lost somewhere along the way.
Staff is blatantly uninterested and provide no guidance upon choosing beers, a passive aggressive attitude from the staff when hesitating during my first order.
Surprisingly unwelcoming, given the hard to find location. If I ever I get back to Tokyo, Iím not going back to this place.
