The next time the University of Miami is listed as one of the nationís top party schools, Iím throwing out the magazine. I donít think the Princeton Review ever rates it highly, but still... Playboy did... once. Miami had unexpectedly beaten Maryland in the ACC basketball tournament and I expected much celebration. This place was right off campus and... NOTHING! Five people there other than boboski, myself and my friend Heather. One of the ugliest bars Iíve been in. Horrible decor. Half Miami Hurricane Football Sports Bar, half out-house. The bartender was the only staff and she was clueless and uninterested. The beer, however, was fairly solid and therefore I canít totally slam the place. Iíll go back one day, but only for the beer. Not really a bad reason at all, I guess.

Nice lengthy bar. Decor is a bit run down, but you can tell it used to be pretty nice. It gives it a partied in kind of feel. The beer and food were pretty so-so though the former was mostly drinkable and the latter mostly edible. Service was decent. Other than being in the area I really wouldnít consider it worth a special trip.

Easy to locate off Dixie Hwy just past Uof M. Parking in front. Long wood bar with brew operation behind bar and glass and section of tables for food. Server was freindly and had the sampler of standard six and she let me sample the three seasonals. They had guest drafts and bottle selection. Bar menu with a seafood kicker. Had the calamari and a salad. Very good and fair price. Good change of pace from South Beach crowd.

Plenty of their own beers available, but not all good. Food was good, but the service was the slowest encountered in Florida.

Sat at the bar, so service was good (when you first visit a place, I believe sitting at the bar is a good way to learn about the beer). I came on Sunday around 11:50 2 days after "minor" hurricane hit... and they were PACKED by 12:30... on Sunday! many local houses had no power. But maybe they are ALWAYS this busy :) Bar is nice and large, great view of liquors available. The beer is stored behind the bar and you can see brewing equpment behind the bar. Limited food was available due to the hurricane/Sunday but I had a fish sandwich (bit expensive at $8) that was very fresh and good (but on bland side, not much seasoning... but good!). Juke box going, FREE WiFi internet. Glasses were still sitting outside on the window ledge from Saturday night party. Even the cofee is good quality and kept in thermos instead of on a active heater. Overall a REAL DEAL place with a wide selection of micros in house. Next to the university, live music ever weekend - I tend to prefer the less busy times, but looks like a great place if you want loud and busy too.
