Came here to beat the heat. Large restaurant with seating on two floors, outdoor balconies. Beer selection on tap eas all their own save labatt blue and labatt light. Service was attentive, but failed on the difference between a pale ale and an ipa. I had two beers, neither were above mediocre. No food thanks. Next

I went to a wedding rehearsal here last November. The placed was packed after a Hockey game and I found myself having more fun with the regular crowd than with the wedding party. Great ambiance, shocking food and excellent Lake Effect Pale Ale.

I have truly mixed feelings about this bar. The sports bar area downstairs is not really my scene, but go one floor up and you get into a belly-up beer bar. I sat at the left-end and had a bunch of beers made on premises. Is the beer amazing? No. But itís not bad either. Itís very serviceable and I like to support a local place making their own product. Once the bar gets into "night club" territory, it gets far less desirable. My party left and came back later at night, and when I was ten steps into the bar, the doorman chased me down and told me there was a $10 cover. (He might have caught me had he been doing his job instead of gladhanding his buddies.) I declined to pay the cover and left. I donít do cover charges, son.

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.

went here before a Leaf game and it was full of Canadians... loved it. They had a pile of beers on tap. We had the pre-game buffet, which was just greasy food. Would go back just for the beer selection

I wouldnít go here for the food but I would go here again for the beer. Quite a place, they had at least 20 different beers on tap. The beer was good, I liked the atmosphere. Good place.

I have been here so many times and just recently realized I have never rated it. My experience last night wasnít the best: rubbery chicken sandwich, hop-less pale ale, somewhat annoying service. With that said I have had several good meals in the past and their seasonal beers can be pretty solid. My advice is to stay away when there is any type of major event at HSBC Arena or anywhere else downtown, that is unless you like dealing with massive crowds of course. It can be quite nice when it is not packed. Enjoy the huge old building or sit out on one of the balconies in the summer and hopefully they will have a solid beer on tap.

Cool brewpub near the HSBC arena ... walked along the lake and the downtown which are all accessible from here. A great location ... old warehouse with a huge tap on the outside corner .... A nice selection of brews and a beautiful wooden bar with plenty of TVís ... unfortunately could only try two of the beers and they were both above average.... I imagine this is a great place before or after a Sabres game .... didnít try the food because I was going to dinner at Hoaks on the lake for a Beef on Weck and had Anchor Bar wings earlier for lunch so this was a great in between ... Definitely had my fill of Buffalo before the Bills/Browns game just took me 6 months to rate it!

Visted before a Sabres game. The buffet was recommended. Food at buffet was average, at best. Food in other parts seemed to be better quality. Place was packed, and am told it always is on game night! House beer was pretty good. Seem to have about 8 on tap at a time, and lots of choice. The WIlly Wonka was dynamite, a must try!
