Belgian Fries were good. Am coming back another time to try their brunch. Sounds yummy. Theyíve got cocktails on top of beer - perfect for our group! Service was consistent. Bottle selection was OK. Draft was better. Check it out!

Stopped by this place on accident in June of 2011 and was happily surprised!

A really cool little place. My only complaint is that the bar area is pretty small/tight. I can see it being pretty annoying if itís busy. It wasnít when I was there, though, so no ambiance complaints.

I have to say for such an awesome place my service was decent but not stellar. It was mid-afternoon and there seemed to only be one bartender. He was friendly and seemed to know a fairly decent amount of beer, but he wasnít particularly prompt and couldnít answer a couple of questions I had about a couple of the beers (granted they have a lot).

Tons of beers on tap and in the bottle with a nice menu divided by style. Iím assuming itís about all the worthwhile beers available in Atlanta.

I thought some of the bottle prices were a bit steep, but the tap list seemed to be reasonable.

Overall, this is a must stop in Atlanta for sure. Great place!

This is my favorite neighborhood place. Itís my "Cheers," and while everyone knows my name it is the constantly changing beer list that keeps me coming back. With weekly specials including tap takeovers, pint nights and more the list always includes something either new to the market or new to me. But itís not just at the bar they excel. Co-Owner Nick Rutherford does amazing things in the kitchen. My only complaint is that some of the more popular "specials" like ramen havenít found a permanent home on their regular menu.

Extensive beer menu, excellent prices, friendly knowledgeable staff. If youíre in Atlanta donít miss this one of a kind local pub. Only negative is smoking is permitted after 10.

Personal consultations a plenty and as long as you like. Generous draft tastings. Good food made better by the make-it-your-way service. Best value for the mega-craft and food niche. Personal and quality. Ambiance is kind of hole-in-the-wall, but welcome and typical of old, neighborhoods like Little Five Points Atlanta.

We stopped by on a rainy Saturday afternoon and were immediately impressed. Itís small and cozy, no TVs, and lots wood and exposed brick. Our server was attentive and very knowledgible of the beer and what was available. The food was mostly glorified pub grub, which was fine. I really liked the place and couldíve happily spent all afternoon there.

Spend an absolutely delightful afternoon here with a dear friend while in town for a conference. After cabbing it from downtown to Little Five Points, we literally had to walk through a Tea Party rally to cross the threshold. It made the comforts of this superlative gastropub even greater. Old school bar, long and narrow, with mellow lighting, dark wood, and NO TVs! We bellied up to the bar and were immediately impressed by the superb tap and bottle offerings. We stuck with taps all day but the bottle list was rocking to be sure. Justin and Neil were unbelievably cool and helpful and knowledgeable throughout, so shout outs to them are much deserved. We sampled some nice Mikkeller, BFM, Lagunitas, Southern Tier, and more. And the food was really excellent, with bacalau (!) the highlight and sweet local cheeses too. Top notch, a must in Atlanta.

Five visits in 2010, most recent Aug 2011. Big downgrade in Aug 2011. Worst bartender ever at the Porter, so downgrading and putting this on my three year blues watch. Might be thinking better than it really is aka Browers in Seattle. Like a Portland or Seattle beer bar dropped into the beer desert of Georgia. 30-40 minute walk from downtown, $10-12 cab ride. Plus- poor toGood to excellent bartenders; great food; younger hip crowd; bartenders are good with samples as they seem genuinely committed to finding the right beer; deep and varied selection from Belgians and other Europeans to west coast standouts to some occasionally surprising southern beers.. minus- younger, hip crowd; some might not like the "little 5 Points area" (I do); some beers a bit pricy for the pours; sm0king alowed Food always varied and excellent. Would give a higher value rating if they didnít have so many 8-12 oz. pours of mid level beers; ambiance would be a 5 if no smoking THE beer stop in Atlanta.
