After noticing some good reviews online, I decided to visit this place on a Friday evening/night. The place isnít hard to find; right off of the always busy State Rd 50/Colonial Dr. Inside is fairly spacious with number of tables and booths spread out, with even an area to play pool. Thereís not much separating the billiards area with some people eating their meals, though. The lighting throughout is dim but not too dark. The bar has adequate seating, and where a friend and I ended up, but itís not really a great place to sit for anything. The stools are not that comfortable, depending on where you are sitting the TV viewing can be awkward, and the way the bar is setup itís not ideal for eating a meal. The service was probably just okay. One bartender did a great job, while another was next to impossible to flag down. Iím not sure flinging my glass at his head would have gotten his attention. When we first arrived around 5:30 it wasnít busy at all in there but by 8:00 or so it started to fill up. The food is your mostly typical pub food; I had the Jerk Chicken sandwich, which was decent. But the fact that they have food at all is a big plus in my book and the main reason I donít necessarily think they are directly competing with Redlight down the road. Iím pretty far into this review without mentioning the beer; a crime. The beer is tremendous! Honestly, everything about this place; the vibe, location, service, food, screams mediocre, but itís the beer selection/quality where this place really shines. They had a ton of stuff on tap I either hadnít seen in FL before or really wanted to try. They offer half draft pours for half the price, which is very nice. The bottle list was impressive as well. Despite the half pour option, I left without getting to try so many good beers I wanted to, which makes a trip back at some point very likely.
Visited here during my Florida trip. Great, spacious and atmospheric bar with booths and high tables as well as a pool table and long bar. Cool selection of beers, some more special than the other, but certainly some cool finds. Food was good, some cool burgers and pub grub, but done well. Service was good, but not too knowledgeable about their beers but still very friendly.
Much more restaurant than bar, with black-clad heavily pierced servers who were unfailingly pleasant. Our server was quite nice but did not appear to know his beer terribly well. A good list of taps, with half-price 5-ounce servings to make tasting easy. I found it rather expensive, with 10-ounce beers in the $6-8 range, but that could just be Orlando -- I visited on a conference trip. The food was sort of punk-hipster-bar food, with things like fried pickles, many flavors of tater tots, and a dozen themed burgers. They did an excellent job creating vegetarian versions of almost all of their dishes.
Interesting place, enticing from the outside. Ambience is a low lit divey bar feel with a semi halloween theme. Staff was both friendly and knowledgable. Selection, was pretty impressive, ltos of italian stuff I had never heard of, as well as some itneresting micro things. Food was decent bar food. Value was solid for what tthey had, but not incredibly cheap or anything. Will definitely be back if in the Orlando area.
Great place in the Orlando area. Food is great and they recently redid the menu to reflect more of a burger joint, which it originally was anyways. The people really care about their beers and they always have a good lineup of drafts. They get some rare and out there stuff as well. All their beers are really reasonably priced and I would even say on the low side compared to other places around town. Great value and food is very good.

Dark interior, limited natural lighting, but very wide open space. Biker bar feel with punk rock looking staff, though they are extemely friendly. Small food menu, I had some wings and they were good. Excellent beer selection with tons of different styles and price points. $1 off all beers during happy hour is a sweet deal. Overall, a pretty cool place that I went to twice during my 3 days in Orlando for work.
Take I-4 to Colonial Dr to get there the other way from the Orlando tourist has a surprise toll. We went on a Tuesday. It is kid friendly. Excellent service, great beer and food. I donít think there are any great beer places in Orlando near the tourist area. Way better than Cafe Tu Tu Tango (both have good food but different kinds).
†The ambiance really doesnít seem to fit the products sold...† If I didnít read about it first I would have walked in expecting Bud Light and a hamburger. I was pleasantly surprised to have received excellent service, a fantastic variety of very good beer, and delicious food. I would encourage anyone to check this place out. Its worth your time.
We love Oblivion. Itís always one of the first places we think of when we go out. Crazy good beer list, great food that is actually scratch made & really cool wait staff.
So tired of the trendy hipster scene invading Orlando, this place is refreshingly awesome!
Side note to the older crowd - if you come early they are really family friendly. We have a 5 year old & he loves it there, but weíve never stayed past 6:30 with him.
good brews and decent food. hostesses are good to look at regular type of young girls and friendly. the place is abandoned diner redone nicely in skeletons with pool table. is that Glenn Danzig near the entrance? Wife loved the burger.
