Last Monday was my first time back at Ginger Man Dallas in a long time. Great place. The old house feel with the large back yard patio/beer garden is what every pub should aspire to. There was one bartendar and one waitress working (I think Kevin and Jana) who were both knowledgable, friendly, and you can tell they care about what they are doing. Still the only complaint I have about the G-man, no liquor, and the food. I get the no alcohol, but these chains have been around too long to still have such poor food choices.

Cool pub set inside an old house in Uptown Dalllas. I really enjoy the upstairs area and actually had my engagement party and part of my bachelor party there. Good selection with the occasional rarity popping up on tap. Well exucuted glass nights. Service is decent and with most Dallas beer bars some of the staff knows little to nothing about beer.

A canít miss destination when in Dallas. The selection is excellent and the atomosphere very unique. Be sure to sit on the patio. The staff is very knowledgeable about the brews and knows a proper pour. Heck they might even teach you a thing or two!

Visited on a recent trip to Dallas. I really liked the vibe of this place. Lots of dark wood with a neighborhood bar feel. They had a great selection of local beers with reasonable prices. In fact, they had something like 15-20 Octoberfest beers on tap, which was cool if you like the style. I liked the patio out back as well. Didnít try the food, but I will likely be back if I am in the area.

Went here on a Sunday afternoon, I liked the atmosphere, almost reminded me of a Duval street bar with a front and back patio with dogs hanging out. The website wasnít spot on with the selection, but none the less they had a solid selection. I felt prices were pretty good, but then again Iím from NJ, where you pay $5 for an out of date Sam Adams at most of my local bars. Staff was friendly and served the beer in the proper glasses. Overall I would love to have a place like this close to me.

Nice pub located in Uptown. The bar is dimly lit with only a handful of televisions. This is definitely not a craft beer sports bar. Great selection. On a recent visit, they had Saint Arnold Imperial Whiskey Stout, Real Ale Empire and (512) Two on tap. There is a parking lot next door so unless you are there on a very busy night, parking should not be an issue. The food is regular pub grub, but there are plenty of great restaurants in the area so just eat before you come.

On the day we went it was incredibly crowded due to a chili cook-off. Out of the 10 brews we asked about they were out of 7 of them. The service was lacking, but not horrible. The menu is very limited and is not your typical bar food, which I guess is good. We ordered the fruit and cheese tray and the spinach/artichoke dip. Both were very good, but you donít get very much food for the price you pay.

Stopped by here because any serious beer geek needs to make a pilgrimage here. First off, it was a head ache to get to, I will never drive here again myself. Secondly, I liked the layout, gives the appearance of being a cozy bar. Third, I did love the beer selection, I found 2 beers here as of this date I had never tried, I am assuming 50+ beers on tap. Fourth, service did seem a bit slow, I was standing around for several min. until a bartender asked if I needed anything, it was around 3:30 on a weekday as well. One of the bartenders kept pretty damned busy due to a Sam Adams party taking place, she looks like a cute, balls to the walls girl, that was a plus! I enjoyed the patio they have as well as the 2nd level. Parking has to be a bitch during busy hours. Overall, I love the layout and selection, just hate location.
