I love this place! Over 200 different labels from all over the world. A good mix of people and lifestyles with an emphasis on jazz and blues. Staff is friendly and the food is pretty good. They just went non-smoking even though Utah indoor smoking act dosn’t go into effect ’til 2009.

The selection is the best I have seen since I move to Utah the food and wait staff are excellent. Get there early if you are going on a friday or saturday night because most of salt lake will try to cram their way in.

Located in a brick building with limited parking on the side. Foods going for a New Orleans theme but is fairly bland. I had the Etoufee and there was way too much rice. The reason to come here is the incredible beer list. You could go a year and not see a Cantillon on the list and they had 4 at prices that were pretty reasonable all things considering. They also had over 300 other bottle options many of which you can’t find in the local liquor stores. The had 30 taps of mainly Utah beer. Of course the states draft laws constraint hem. The service was pretty good considering how bus the place gets. If you come to the SLC you have to come here.

Best beer selection in the state... Staff is knowledgeable about beer, and they’re generally on the ball--even when the place gets pretty damned busy (happens a lot). Really good food. Nice place.

Recommended by a college friend, this bar met expectations. New Orleans styled food with seemingly every 4.0% Utah beer on draft. Hundreds of bottles as well. Food was good, service was OK, but slow. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Cajun food in Salt Lake City? Who knew? Anyway, a really nice place for beers. Excellent lighting in all the right places here. A wide selection of beers and decent food. The gumbo was excellent and the jambalaya was on par. They have a small lot for parking and some parking on the street that is free later in the evening. I absolutely loved it here.

Great selection of beer. This place has an awesome menu of local, regional, seasonal and world beer. The food ranges from average to really good depending on what you get. Typical pub fare with some great souther hits. The place has a nice ambiance. Old brick building with a nice bar. I would recommend hitting this place up. It’s nice to see such a great beer menu in Salt Lake.

Great place. Beer selection is excellent for the area, and they were not out of any of my selections, as so many other "great" beer menu places have been. Food is a varied selection of fresh and tasty stuff; bartender is very knowledgeable. This is a good restaurant and pub that is trying to be a great beer destination , and is succeeding.

Saturday evening, place was busy, not packed. Great service from the bartenders-- some old guy got shot down for complaining about the 4% Hooegarden-- chuckled w/ the bartender. Ended up talking with and yelling at the Olympics with 5 guys around me that we’re very friendly and beer-knowledgable. I drank a large portion and the bill was only 20 something-- think I got comped a beer or two. I’d go back to SLC just for this bar.

A jazz band is often playing, and the place is always packed. Forget about all that: there are over 200 types of beers here, and many really great ones. No trip tp SLC would be complete without. Some beers often available include many locals, Rochefort, Cantillion, Chimay, Full Sail, Big Sky, Fullers, and many more. The selection comes and goes, but is always excellent. Also check the ’off-the menu’ menu.
