Loong bar with extra tables, restaurant next door. Service was OK, they were friendly but looked a little stressed on a Sunday afternoon. Food was outstanding. Beer selection was very good, with lots of local stuff plus an occasional rarity. Good prices. Worth going out of your way for.

Fancy interior - dark wood paneling, comfy leather bar stools, polished metal throughout the bar... a lot of rich WASPy folks hanging around drinking martinis and pinot, but the beer selection is actually better than decent. Drafts of Houblin Chouffe and Bear Republic Red Rocket, among others. About 15-20 drafts along with a nice bottle selection (Scherlenkerla Urbock, Olfabrikken Abbey, Mikkeller Black Hole). Bottle prices are spendy, of course. Food is actually really good, and surprisingly the prices aren’t astronomical. The crowd is a bit too much country club for me, but I liked the food and the beer selection is solid.

Located in a standalone building in a prefab block I wasn’t expecting much but this place is pretty awesome. Lots of brass and wood on the inside. They have 24 taps plus over 150 bottles a few of them pretty hard to get. They have a nice range of local and national crafts plus a few Brewdogs, Mikellers, and Nogne as well. They also have weekly beer nights on Mondays. The food is fantastic. The portions aren’t large but they’re incredibly flavorful. The prices aren’t cheap but it’s a really cool experience.

A nice gastropub conveniently located in Columbia. From the outside, it looks like it could be another strip mall parcel, but once inside, you realize you are somewhere different. The owners are serious about their food and beverages. This is a family-owned establishment, with all four contributing daily. I highly recommend the duck fat fries. The beer selection is thoughtful and fresh. There are beer dinners every month with wine dinners thrown in occasionally.

A must stop while in the Columbia area. The owners have introduced themselves on a few occasions and they are very helpful and accomodating. The beer selections are great and the food is top flight yto. Add a great atmosphere and you have a winning combination.

Shopping mall exterior gives way to a cozy bar and separate dining area. Sat at the bar with almost everyone else in the place at happy hour and beyond, so service was good at first but slowed a bit when they got deluged in the bar. Draft beer selection is not huge, but very well selected and they have a fairly extensive bottle list as well. Food was excellent and one of the few who should be allowed to call themselves a Gastro Pub. Beers are high quality but a bit overpriced. However, the food pricing is actually a pretty good deal for the quality presented.

Nice gastropub in Columbia. Nothing special from the outside, but the interior is spacious and well designed. Thoughtful beer selection, but a bit on the safe side. Food is the standout here and everything I’ve had was delicious. Good apps also make this place a good choice for a happy hour gathering. Great staff and management with occasional beer dinner events.

Nice restaurant with a good amount of craft beer, sleek interior. Good amount of bar seating and a good amount of dining tables. Draft selection is pretty good, nice variety of mostly local and regional offerings. Food and desserts are great, try the poutine fries! Bar service was friendly. A bit pricey but not too bad. Well worth a stop if you’re in the area.

Stopped in for the first time for a beer. Selection was very good and I appreciated how they served 12 or 20 oz for many of the beers. I didn’t have the food but will say that it looked good. Service was fine and geared towards a nice restaurant experience. I was surprised about how unfriendly the place felt to have a beer -- hostesses were stiff and unwelcoming and the decor seemed geared more towards high end dining. In whole it works because of the selection, but not a place for simply enjoying good beer.
