Rather impressed with this place despite having preconceived notions about it. Was hesitant when my friends suggested going but, boy was I wrong! Nice line-up of drafts and bottles. Absolutely friendly and attentive service and AWESOME barbecue made on site! We were treated like old friends in this place. Shot pool and shot the shit with the owner (who makes the BBQ). Will definitely go back!

wouldn’t be considered my favorite atmosphere. i think the location is odd for a desire of trying to sell nice beers. service was average...it would have been nice if the bartender new what she was talking about. but maybe it will get better with time.

The feel of the place is very relaxing with pool tables and darts. Music playing at a volume that’s not overwhelming. The owner and bartenders tend to the guests very well making it personable instead of just a "hey, how are ya?". The beer selection was hand picked by two of the bartenders and they did FAR MORE then a superb job with a selection of anything from a cider beer to a dark lager. Value wise you can’t beat it with specials changing monthly. 1/2 value on bottles of wine, 2 dollar domestic beers, and many more perks! After only one visit this is the impression I got and I will surely return soon. Plenty more beers to try;)

I’ve recently tried to visit this tavern in the evening, and they’re frequently closed. Prices are decent, the crowd is mixed, and the beer selection is exaggerated. I wish they would just act as a tavern, offering decent domestic’s with a few imports and staying open past 10pm.

Excellent Beer selection...one of the best I have seen in that area in years. Red Nectar Brooklyn Brown, Legend Porter on tap just to name a few. The food was excellent, the service was slow, it was busy and only one bartender for lunch, but the selection more than made up for it.

This place recently reopened with new management and new beers. Pool tables, dart boards, about 10 taps and 40 bottles make for a nice stop in an otherwise desolate part of Newport News. Selection of beers tends toward the hopheads and Imperial crowd, but is lacking in terms of a German traditionals lagers, English/Irish ales or just any good session beers. Limited pub food selection; homemade chips were good, but nothing to write home about it. Service was very pleasant, and crowding very low, but this could be due to a slow Monday after-work period. In all, not a bad stop and nice hometown environment, but wouldn’t be my star stop on any tour.
