Definitely designed more for fine dining than the beer connoisseur but the brews were damn tasty, well constructed, and fairly complex. Waitstaff not particularly knowledgeable about the beer but were very friendly and fairly attentive. Nice ambiance, upscale for sure. Appetizers were flavorful. Would definitely return.

We visited this restaurant on 20.12.2013. This is a great fish restaurant, which also brews beer. Beer is for sure not the focus here. The oysters and steamed mussels were excellent, the service very nice and professional (we were sitting at the bar) and the beers were mediocre. We had an Irish Red and an IPA. They have around 8 own brewed beers and 2 guest beers on the menu. Here you come not for the beers but for the food.

Iíve been visiting this place since 2007 or so. Theyíre a semi high end seafood restaurant that also makes a lot of beer. Iím impressed that they can move as much beer as they do in house. In all the times Iíve been there Iíve only eaten appetizers, never the expensive stuff. Thatís more because Iím not into seafood. The beer ranges from meh to really good. The old ales (Hillbilly), the coffee beers, the XPA, and a few others are quite good. Theyíve had a couple of flops like their sours but over all Victor makes some good beers. Service can be good if youíre at the bar but can be hit or miss at the bar tables. Iím not sure the low scores are justified here but itís not really a beer geek type of place, though they usually have at least half a dozen house beers to try.

Sweet spot. Very nice place, feels slightly upscale yet very comfortable. Service is great. 10 house taps this day, and 2 bucks for a sampler of any. Didnít eat. Free parking just to the north/northeast.

A place where you get your stomach filled, the portions are huge, and it tastes nice too. The beers are decent, but rather forgettable, not off in any way though. We got good and friendly service even though we sat alone on the patio. A nice place to stay, even though the beers are a bit boring.

Returned here during RBSG and couldnít understand why we were visiting...until I had their stouts. My goodness, this place is a great example of not judging a book by its commercial cover. Kind service and good seafood, but youíll pay for it. Hope they keep developing big beers and slowly move away from their current aesthetic.

Another stop on the RBSG bus tour. Service was spotty, but we were in a massive group and sort of chaotic for the staff. Still very friendly. Food was delicious but huge portions and very rich. The buffalo burger was on buttered toast and was ridiculously good but very heavy for lunch. The fries were awesome. All the food looked delicious. Tap list looked okay- house beers and guest taps. The house beers could be ordered in small glasses, didnít see a real flight of sorts. We ordered their Balinese stout and a bottle of the Remy. Both were quite good. The other house beers were disappointing. Ambiance is like a mega mega sports bar. Enormous cavern of an interior. Sort of like a beer hall feel. Very social and casual. It was a bit pricey, but the food portions were enormous. Prepare for LEFTOVERS!!

Really good food, some nice beers. The bottled REMY was a treat. Service was pretty good considering how many of us there were.

Nice place with good food but a bit pricy. Service was a bit sketchy but we were in a big group doing lots of ticking. Decent beers but not so special. Would be nice to eat here slowly and chill.

Nice place for dinner if you donít mind spending some cash. It is really comfortable inside with a huge bar area. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was really good and the beer was mostly above average with a few really good ones. It is spendy, but not ridiculously overpriced for a nice restaurant like this. I would come back here for sure if Iím in the area again.
