Went for a late lunch with the wifey after we debated about hitting here or Billyís... Great looking interior, I like the wood floors and ceiling- makes everything boring so your eyes stay at room level. The joint was empty but the servers still were on point and helpful. Selection- bar had over 12 taps with some local picks (Jester King had 3 alone) and a selection of bottles, just wish it was a larger selction. Food- it was ok, and then I remembered the price- hide your mamma! A bit on the pricey side, and I can just imagine what type of cliente comes through the door on the late weekend nights. Overall- Iíll be back someday. Iíve saying that alot lately.

I was here on July 4th, about 5pm. Nice open layout. I think thye had 20 drafts, some which were draft only offerings, which is nice. We ate light (Crostini, tortilla soup!!, salad) and the food was good, as was the service. I look froward to going back there again.

I go to this bar probably once a month or so. The highlight for me is they have pint night on Wednesdays and that usually is a cask.
They have had some epic casks here some even that the major Austin beer hangouts donít get. Real Ale and St Arnold casks spring to mind.
Parking is not all that great. I usually park in a unclaimed parking lot and worry that my car doesnít get towed. Itís an easy walk from downtown, though.
When I have been here , usually during happy hour on Pint night, and it is pretty crowded. The service has suffered due to the crowds. I have had the range from pretty good service to really bad service where the waitress forgot to put in my food order.
The food is ok, not exceptional. Pretty decent selection of food. A little pricey.

Went for pint glass deal w. cask Elissa. Been meaning to go here for a while. Nice, but not that exciting. Most entertainment was watching a mom that was probably my age put away three or four pints to my one. She was READY for thanksgiving. For the number of taps they have, itís a pretty good selection.

Well I had aweful service and apparently Tuesday night is Tango night...no joke, accordian, violin, piano, and double bass playing music and about 2 dozen older folks tango-ing...interesting beer selection but not great...16 taps and nothing extraordinary but it was interesting that Chimay white is on tap...interesting spot if nothing else...I had the Flat Iron steak and it was pretty tasty...

Very nice place with a good beer selection and a nice but small menu. From burgers to gourmet dishes. Friendly staff as well. Check it out.

Not a beer geekís paradise but have a few decent locals plus some surprise gems such as Red Seal Ale and Chimay on tap. The draw for me is Pint night on Wednesday nights - order their featured beer that night (on 3/2 it was New Belgium 1554 and keep the glass - no limit!). Food is passable and the crowd is friendly and a bit more "yuppiesh" than the rest of Austin. Quick, cheerful service. Nice change of pace.
