Visited for dinner on a Wednesday. Huge place, big sprawling suburban type restaurant set up. Claim to have the tallest bar in Texas, so bully to that. Beer selection is 9 Big Horn house beers and 4 guest taps. Also a macro focused bottle selection. Huge food menu that reminds me of what brewpub menus were 20 years ago. Everything about this place was over sized. Service was attentive and efficient. This was close to Love Field, so worked fine for dinner.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
It’s like the brewpub as tacky hunting lodge. Only in Texas would having the highest ceilings in town be a point of civic pride. From the frozen beer glasses, to the reheated food, to the boring beers everything about this place screams mediocrity. No Point in going except for the beer/place tick.
I quite enjoyed my visit to Humperdinks... I would go here to watch a sports game, which seems to be how they aimed this place .. . pretty waitress was attentive, manager came by a few times also and chatted beer .. . pretty good food .. . and a really big selection of house brews .. . now to the next stop!
Ambiance: The one on Greenville is right by me, but I much prefer this one. High ceilings, windows and wide open spaces makes this place quite comfy - compared to the Greenville cave.
Service: Not bad, BUT. The referee outfits they put on the women are both ugly and ill fitting. And they seem to hate them and it shows in their attitude. And who likes a referee anyway? Dumb choice. Service is very prompt, courteous and attentive here. Again, far better than Greenville Ave.
Selection: If you like uninspired, lesser flavored home made beer this is your place. The more aggressive styles are seldom to be seen. Currently a Maibock, that is pretty tasty. The IPA (Big Red) and Porter are very pedestrian, but are at least drinkable.
Food: Like the beer, competent, but uninspired and limited in aggressive flavors. Think Applebees and you’ve got the idea.
Value: They put coupons in email and the newspaper all the time for buy one meal, get one free. It nevers moves me to act. Enough said.
Overall: If you want great beer in Dallas, avoid this brewpub. The Gingerman is a far superior choice. If you want great food and beer, The Libertine is an awesome choice.
