Very popular place. Large dining area with a small bar area off to the side. Service was really good for us, but the food delivery from the kitchen was slow. Moderate beer selection (this is not a beer bar) with locals and favorites. When food arrived, it was excellent. Terrific value as well.

Stopped in for dinner with some non beer friends. Actually they were beer people back when I started in 2005 but they no longer care so for all intents and purposes this was not a ticking trip.
The place was packed on a Saturday night. It would have been an hour to get a table but we found a table in the bar area that the 5 of us could get around. Service was pretty slow as you might imagine on a night that busy. The tap line up isnít that impressive as itís just a lot of macro taps with a few good ones mixed in. I got an old Union Jack and then a Paulaner hefe. My friendís Sierra Nevada Pale was pretty fresh. The food was quite good albeit way too much. I went with the spicy burger (canít remember the name) and that was pretty good, though when I ordered it medium rare it came out medium well. The one I really wanted to try but didnít want to commit to was the peanut butter and jelly burger. Sounds like it could be good but it also might be terrible. I guess Iíll have to go back and try it.
Overall a fun place but donít expect an intimate dining experience or anything too ridiculous on tap. Also, prices are pretty high.
