Atmospherically-challenged, it is a nice-looking building but the interior is from Brewpubs for Dummies. Beers aren't great, but not awful either. A fairly neutral experience all-round, except for that beer festival afterparty, which was pretty cool.

An anomaly of market and offering. Downtown Buffalo is underutilized, its right behind a highway, yet its a safe part of town. This is a huge place, with three large floors and well maintained with good woodwork and iron patio. However beer selection is minimal. There were seven taps, including a guest tap, and a separate Molbat. And only two or three macros. And that repeats itself in three places. The sample deck is pretty and a good 3.5 ounce glass per, but I think it was the most expensive. Hey Buffalo guys, lots of friendly girls drinking hard in the middle of the day.

A huge and very nice place right downtown. Lots of room, but more a dining place than a pub. Service was very good and whatever they couldnít answer they found out. Lots of their own beers to try, unfortunately none that great. A very nice 10 beer sampler with just a few ounces each to tick away. Food was good, but nothing better than average pub fair. Prices were reasonable for a downtown restaurant. Although not bad, not likely I will head back.

My first stop on my Buffalo beer tour. Right next to the bus station and itís a great first stop. I was here on the day of a winter festival so it was pretty busy for 11:00 AM. Dark old pub with lots of wood and brass. Great selection of their own stuff. Lots of hoppy stuff (not quite as hoppy as Iíd have liked, but things rarely are). Beer specials (including a few knockbacks). Great sandwiches in here too. Friendly staff and friendly locals. I had a great visit in here. Iíll be back.

This is a mediocre brewpub in a below-average beer city (I guess that makes it a pretty decent brewpub in Buffalo). Located in downtown Buffalo, it is a large brewpub/restaurant. There were many beers on tap (maybe 10-12), although half were light beers or fruit beers. The beers are drinkable, but not great. The food menu is standard pub fare, perhaps slightly above average. It is a nice place to relax with a pint, but overall, I was not impressed.

Great looking place. Food is always decent to pretty good. Soups & chili are usually top notch. Beer was always pretty bad but supposedly a new brewer is there & things have improved

This is a large building downtown that is often crowded. It is part Resaurant, part bar, and part sports bar (upstairs with pool tables and other games). They typically have about 6 or 7 selections on draft. They serve the beer in plastic cups when it is busy and itís very difficult to get a drink here. The beers are average.

Beautiful old building, former department store perhaps? with a huge brewpub now taking up pretty much the whole thing -- man this place is spacious, and I didnít even explore outside of the main room on the first floor. Huge bar area and ample seating during the dead hour (3 pm a couple of days after Christmas) that I visited; parking was no problem within a block on the street. Food was pretty decent, excellent steak fries (too many) accompanying a nice piece of catfish (which could have been bigger); beer was a bit problematic. Stupid narrow "mug" samplers, get rid of that shit! But regardless of shape, the beers werenít all that special: the three lighter samples were basically crap, the stout and doppelbock ok, the scotch ale fairly decent. I kind of dug the vibe of downtown Buffalo, and this place has promise, so I may be back; but as is, this is marginal.

Continental styled pub with Polish-German hints especially shown on food menu. Large selection of home brews. Service was good and quiet helpfull.

Visited on a quiet Saturday afternoon in May, there were lots of wooden chairs and a huge system of belts and fans cooling all the rooms and tables and booths to some rockiní music. Service was fast and friendly. Great pulled pork sandwich and deep fried chips. Beer selection was at least numerous if not too different from each other. Located in an interesting part of town -- 50 years ago it used to be the worst place in America for gangs and fights and such! (Itís cleaned up a lot since then.)
