What a great place. If you like craft beer it is the place to go. On my first visit I had the Hercules IPA and a St. Bernardus, both on tap. I was on an empty stomach and don’t remember my wife’s beers....or much of anything else for that matter. Awesome place.

One of the best beer bars in the world. Two floors, two bars, and every beer in its proper glass. Excellent selection of beers, what I’ve had off the menu was delicious. Better prices are found on the draft selections rather than the bottles, but that’s to be expected. Can get a little crowded, but this is a popular place. Decatur is always a fun trip, there are plenty of restaurants and shops, and everyone should check out the Dekalb Farmer’s Market.
A very nice pub in a good neighbourhood. Seats outside and lots inside. Clean and decently appointed wood seats. Very good selection of beer, particular Belgians, though most are available at Green’s, the best local store. Service is good, but the staff outside of bartender do not know their beer, however they do have the patience to ask. Much better than average bar. Had a good time, courtesy of impromtu Beer Advocate sharing with dano213, smchnsgy, blitz134. Great place to meet in late Northeast’s winter, when it’s clearly spring in Atlanta.
Crowded on a Friday night but got a table had excellent service. The food was excellent and arrived promptly. The beer selection was great and the server was there to get what you needed. It was just crowded, trips to the restroom were an adventure but the place was great. I plan to go back just to be sure.
This place has GOOD beer both upstairs and down (and everything is served in the appropriate glass), it has good food (try the Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and the fish and chips are a must), and I will go there again and again and again… And you should too.
Crowded place, but a fun atmosphere. Nice beer list that includes approximately 8-10 American micros and 8-10 Belgians on draft. Extensive bottle list. Food was better than average bar fair (including some stew and fish & chips). Servers were knowledgeable and fast considering the number of customers they had. A good time, and I would return
holy crap. This place is completely awesome. The most crucial pub to visit in Atlanta. Every drink comes served in appropriate glassware and the food, though mostly pub fare, comes served in a professional arrangement and is very delectable. The Belgian bar upstairs was the last straw, I didn’t even know how to react to that.
Ambiance is great, its done perfectly! Service is great. The selection was great downstairs some nice microbrews. But go up stairs to the Belgian Room. On man, this is heaven! The selection on belgian beers was unbelievable! awesome place.
This is about as good as it gets, in my opinion. Incredible attention to detail in the creation, great regulars. The tap list has everything you want for Belgians including a nice tap selection. The only weakness of selection, I thought, was that they didn’t have many local beers on tap, though more were in bottles. The food is good, fresh, homemade, though not fancy. Prices: unbelievably good, like $5 for a pint of Old Rasputin on tap in Georgia? VERY easy to reach from Atlanta via Marta (sits behind Marta station in Decatur)--if you have just a day or two in Atlanta, make this your first or second stop with 5 Seasons and Greens Liquor.

This place has a TON of excellent beer on tap and in bottles - a full spectrum of beer varieties on draft is a definite plus. All 20 or so draft beers are highly rated beers - you won’t find any budweiser or miller products on draft at this place. Prices aren’t bad, but it isn’t cheap. If you want the good beer, you’re going to have to pay quite a bit for it. Service was outstanding - waiter visited our table often. Only negative is their food. We found nothing we liked on the menu so we had a few beers and ate dinner at some other place in Decatur Square.
Great bar obviously run by a guy who cares about good beer. It can be a little cramped inside at times, due to its popularity and the fact that it’s on the Sqaure. The draft list is not one of those "100 taps" type deals. Instead it’s a continuously rotating 20ish beer selection that covers almost all styles and also usually features the finest of Sweetwater and Terrapin. Beer is almost always served in proper glassware. Food is good quality, but a little pricey (but in-line when compared to other restaraunts on the Square). The place’s atmosphere rocks, especially the upstairs Belgian bar. Service is very helpful. Parking kinda sucks, but thats cause its Decatur Square. I’d say if you were visiting Atlanta and could only visit one place, this is it.
