Visited on a Friday night where the bar area was very crowded and very loud overpowering the vibe in the dining room. For a place that calls itself a taproom the beer selection was pretty boring. Lots of BMC, with a few local and craft taps. The backlight menu disguises a semi-permanent beer selection except for seasonal taps of which they ony had one which was out. They also served all their beer in refrigerated pint glasses which did the Racer 5 IPA I had no favors. The food was solid but not spectacular. The Mac and cheese had a grainy texture to it. The Cajun fish sandwich was a bit underseasoned. The prices are typical for the region like 6 bucks for a 12 ounce draft of Victory the love (which is to say high!) coming here multiple times will quickly exhaust their beer list but it’s better than Jackson’s.

Good central location, nice backlit menus. Nice selection of draft and bottled beers. Food generally good on my five visits in two weeks, though service varies a lot. I agree with the previous rater on the annoyance with the cold beer glasses.

Met some friends from work. Its got that small bar and grill vibe with tons of TVs and an excellent location in Reston Town Center. The craft beer is mainly in bottles and the selection is OK. (note back a year later and the selection looks about the same).They annoying give you a cold glass to go with your cold beer. I’d rather have the glass at room temp so it doesn’t affect the taste of the beer. We tried several appetizers which were all pretty good. The server was competent, but we didn’t see her very often once we placed our orders. Overall, I’d come back for the food, but not specifically for their beers.
