Great Selection of Beer. Inside, the place is a complete sausage fest, which is great for me seeing as how I am attracted to men. Very friendly people on the inside, great place to flirt with a guy. The waitresses are horrible and i couldn’t maintain a buzz because, I couldn’t get a beer. Slow Slow Slow. When they finally brought my food out it was cold. I would say it is a great place to go for a pick up but other than that they’re are better bars in houston.
I had the pizza, wings, and rocket tots (not speedy kids); all were just fair. Pizza was like Tombstone.
Beer selection was great, mostly I liked it because there were so many Texas beers I never knew existed.
Great place to visit, especially if your hotel is in downtown Houston.
It was kind of hot in there when I visited in mid-July.
Decent selection for Texas. Not as nice as the Addison Saucer. Servers were not very knowledgeable – when asked about SA Elissa on cask, waitress replied that she didn’t understand. Come on, this is Houston – Saint Arnold is brewed here, the web site said they had it, but they didn’t. Web site also said they had Avery Maharaja on tap – they didn’t. Not a bad place overall, but a bit of a disappointment considering how hard it is to get to – downtown Houston and all.
Great beer selection...even though you could go down the street to Spec’s and get stuff for half the price if you don’t want it right then. Service is iffy...and food it typical of the bar scene, but hell, I’m there for the beer. They do care about beer and the little hotties working the bar are knowledgeable about the beers for the most part. They also host beer tasting events which is always good in my book. If you’re into the downtown party scene it’s near all that, as well as several, several blocks away from the baseball and basketball stadiums.
I stopped in here on my trip to Houston, and was pleased with the selection and food, but not too impressed with the ambiance or service. Even early on a weeknight it was pretty packed, and the servers were fairly overwhelmed. The pizza I had there was very good, better than I expected, and the beer selection was excellent. A place that I would visit during off-hours for the beer selection, but one that I would avoid the rest of the time.
The best thing about this place is the beer selection. A butt-load of beers on tap. However, the drawbacks keep me from going back. The waitresses are RUDE and clueless, prices are expensive, and it can get pretty crowded in there, which makes the service even worse than it already is. Other than that, it is a great place, but not for me.
My experiences here are from 3 visits in about a year’s time. The last time I was there was Spring of 2006.
cool place, good looking waitresses, bartender knew his stuff and the food was alright too. great selection and hey thats all that matters right?

Great bar to sit and have a few beers that you haven’t seen before. The Monday I went was $2.50 pint night and that was a good thing. Most of the beers seemed fresh, despite the number of taps. They seemed to be serving a very large number of patrons for a Monday. Food was so-so. Didn’t see any cigars. Parrk in the pay lot directly across the street. Unless you’re drinking during business hours, it shouldn’t be a problem
Very impressed to find such a place in Houston. Great beer selection with tonnes of taps on the back wall of the bar. Belgian beers are ridiculously expensive in the States, but no need to drink them here with so many great American beers to sample. Very impressed that the waitress knew so quickly and off the top of her head what the Seasonal ale was with so many beers to remember.
Great selection of beers - one of the best in Houston. Be careful though - some are pretty pricey. Also, they’re strictly beers - no girly drinks (zima, sky Blue, schmirnoff ice, etc). My g/f doesn’t like beer so that was a problem, BUT she found some peach flavored belgian beers she liked...unfortunately they were $12 a bottle and we didn’t know till we checked out.
