Visited February 2013.
First stop, right out of the airport. This place is inside a large hunting/camping supply store. Canít remember if it was Bass Pro or some other chain. And the brewpub is a large steak house. So this is basically a redneck destination, not that I have anything against that. The bar is upstairs overlooking the dining hall. They have a fair number of house taps going and the service and food are decent but the beer needs some serious work. They brew on a good sized system for (presumably) not distributing. If I stop back in itíll be while buying ammo or to ride out traffic.

Visited for dinner on a Monday night. Located nearby (to the North) of DFW airport. My initial reaction was just how enormous this place was, I mean it is an enormous space. Somehow I had not grasped this was part of the Bass Pro shopping complex. Huge beer hall type setup on the main floor, upstairs to an equally huge 2nd floor bar, that also had a bunch of tables and booths and tvs about. I did the sampler 5 beer sampler (served in nice 5 ounce mini footed Pils glasses) and the steak sandwich. The beer was pretty meh, and the food was merely passable. Overall, this place has a sort of a theme park vibe to it. I guess it would be a good place for a work group, or some such outing.

Big lodge themed steak joint that just happens to brew beer. The house brews have really improved recently and hopefully with the recent boom here will continue to improve.

The atmosphere in this place is just awesome! It looks like a giant lodge with probably a 40 to 50 foot vaulted ceiling. The actual bar area is upstairs overlooking the restaurant area and they had the beer tanks on display on the bottom floor. I had the Sportsman Ale which was average but overall the experience was pleasant.

This place was something else!! .. stuffed and mounted animals everywhere, HUGE eating hall, pretty good service, fantastic food with huge portions and a healthy variety of house brews, which were basic but enjoyable .. . I really had a good time, and enjoyed the thunderstorm on the way to pyramids..

Just finished the 2010 Chili Cook-off Firemenís benefit at the Bass-Pro Shop parking lot and won the "2010 People Choice Award" (87 teams) and needed a place to celebrate. We went to the bar which has some awesome appetizers and micro brew. You can see my beer ratings and in my opinion the Redhead Ale is by far the best followed by the IPA. The ambiance in the bar is great and wasnít crowded at all during the Ranger playoff game 2 beating up on the Yanks to go 1-1 for the series. Nice screen TVís. The beer-tenderís were great and was quite knowledgeable about their brews as a requirement to work there by the head Brewmaster. Iím a home brewer myself so I enjoy talking about beers. Appetizers were great but the food there might be a little pricy. They are connected to the Bass Pro shop and the hotel. We received a Bass Pro gift card as our prize and Uncle Bucks gladly accepted it for food and drinks. The next time I go with friends I might buy the 64 oz full growler for $12 bucks and ask for a couple of glasses to share. Refills are only $7 which isnít bad if youíre buying the next round. Enjoy!!!

Just like the old place, new brewer and some better beers. Nice projector for games and plenty of flat panels.

Essentially the same place as Big Bucks, except a new brewer as of three months ago, and as a result, slowly better beer. The old beers were messed up and there were still two of them on tap. The new brewer comes from Florida and is slowly changing things around. The new IPA (use to be a pale) and the Redhead are markedly better than anything I tried under the Big Buck era. It is on the right path now.
Ambiance and such: Huge restaurant in the Bass Pro Shop Complex, sports bar up stairs. Tons of fermenters. 9 Beers on tap. Didnít try the food (but it use to be decent). Lots of flat screen TVs. Only person who knew anything about beer in the whole place was the brewmaster who also works as a part time manager. Looking forward to the changes he is continually making!

Formerly Big Buckís, Uncle Buckís is in the same building with exactly the same set-up and decor. Different brewing team creates a new line of beer, as well as a different food menu. Stopped in for dinner and ate in the bar. Seating is available on 2 levels, the bar residing on the second level. TVís are viewable upstairs, the largest playing the Rangerís game. I tried the sampler, which was 8 5 oz. samplers. Enough to get a good sense of what the beer was and for a decent value. I also had the buffalo burger which was a pretty large serving. All in all itís basically Big Buckís renamed, but still a nice establishment. Prices can get steep on the steaks. They also have TVís built in above the urinals.....a nice touch.
