The staff knows their beers! A bonus! Great selection of crafts and drafts. Look at the board to find the specials. I usually get the naked wings for an appetizer and then go for the ribs a couple of pints later. My wife looks at ABV for her beer choices. Great sample flight selections!
Went in nby myself and bar area was jammed when I got there so had to sit in dining section. Lots of TV’s around. Great selection of craft beers. Very knowledgeable staff and food, although bar food, it was fresh and well prepared. Thumbs up to this one.
The first thing that stands out about Chappy’s is the incredible beer selection. By my count, they have approximately 14 craft brews that are always on draught, including some great selections such as Dogfish Head 90 IPA, St Bernardus 12, Hoeggarden, Chimay White, Southern Tier Unearthly, Oak aged Arrogant Bastard and more. In addition, they also have at least another 5-10 rotating drafts of seasonals and other beers, not to mention around 100 or so bottled selections. Many of the beers are served with the glassware from the brewery. Staff is friendly and cordial -- there are many TV’s in the bar and restaurant area, but they are typically placed in corners and high on the wall -- I wouldn’t necessarily classify it as a sports bar. They often have special events going featuring a particular brewery or special -- check their website and mailing list for these! In the past year, they’ve added a frequent beer club promotion -- you get a card and they check off beers from a list of 100 as you drink them. This definitely helps move their bottled beers and keep them fresh as well as encourages the customer to try something different. My only critique, is although the food is good, it would be nice if they had a little more variety with some healthy and/or a vegetarian option.
I absolutely LOVE Chappy’s. For awhile, we came every Friday. We know many of the servers there, the bartenders and the owners now. They always talk to you and are extremely friendly.
Chappy’s atmosphere is great. They have a very "upscale" setting with the low lighting and classy colored finishes. The bathrooms are clean and so are the glasses and silverware.
The food is great, I love it. We go there so much though, that sometimes I just feel like I’m eating the same food all the time. Their chicken tortilla soup is the best, get it with extra tortilla strips.
The beer selection is good, they often rotate their taps and get new stuff in. Make sure you ask your server, because sometimes things are out or new things just got tapped - they may have something not listed!! Their beer club is cool, but you may end up having to drink some beers that you just never have wanted to drink.
I really like chappy’s, if you are in Dayton, check it out. It’ll be a fav in your book too.
Besides being closed on Monday I can’t think of something bad to say about the place. Excellent tap lineup and a great bottle selection, also. They actually care about the quality of the beer in your glass, which is something not all beer bars tend to do. The food was excellent and if I didn’t like beer I’d go back for just that but i love beer so I’m heading back for another pint. Pretty busy when I was there (following alefest), the live music was very nice and at the proper level to keep conversation going. I love it.
