Since the Sandy Springs location closed in early 2006 I’ve been forced to make the drive out to Snellville to see my favorite bartender/general manager Kevin. While it’s located in a somewhat vacant strip mall in the suburbs the service and food make it worth the trip. You can catch whatever your favorite sports team is all while enjoying above average bar food and a selection of more than 100 draft beers and 120 additional bottled beers.
Summits was a mainstay when I lived in the Snellville area and I still go out of my way on occasion to visit. The food is great for a sports bar and the beer list is extensive. Plenty of options on draft, including some hard to find rarities that pop up every now and then. Beer is a little on the expensive side though. Waitstaff is pretty knowledgeable about beer which is always nice. The atmosphere is typical sports bar, a little more on the family friendly side though. Not the best place to catch a game. Their TVs are pretty old and it can be frustrating trying to watch a football game or something in there. Even for big games they don’t really seem to put the volume up either. Overall though its a fun place to eat some wings and have a beer.
Dark, open restaurant with TV’s, neon signs, concrete floor, and an open ceiling. The servers were attentive. The beer list is extensive, but nothing really rare or unusual. The prices are very high, thogh. The food is good bar fare, but nothing that special. Overall, this is a good sports bar, especially for the area, but nothing to go out of your way for.
Family-style pub with open seating at the tables or the bar and TV’s everywhere you turn. There’s a little patio for the smokers, I guess. Never bothered me. Very good service and food. Never a bad experience in a half-dozen or more visits. Trivia is fun. A happening place.
A regular hangout for the guys on my softball team, church friends and trivia group; staff is well-rehearsed on beerstyles, and their recommendations are always a winner. Kitchen can be slow, but the menu is large and varied, portions large, and the quality of food (although occasionally they have an "off" night) is surprisingly good - the way good local pub food is supposed to be. I signed up for the Passport Club 7 months ago, and I’m a third of the way to achieving Tier 1 status (100 different draughts), which earns me: a personalized 16 oz mug hung from the bar which they fill at the 12 oz prices. I love this place!
This place does have a massive selection of taps, but you don’t know what you’re paying till you get the bill - prices are not posted. Food is terrible; I actually got food poisoning from eating there once! Ambience is typical lame sports bar. Service was friendly enough, if you want to be served overpriced beer and e-coli. Not much of a choice in the Snellville/Lilburn area. Save your money and make the drive to Decatur. Thank god i moved 1.5 miles from the Brick Store!!
One of my favorite watering holes in the Atlanta area. Their beer selection is nothing short of awesome, their waitstaff is very efficient and helpful, and the food is darned good. It is easy to find, and parking is more than adequate - there is plenty up front, and more in the back. Whether there are just a few people, or whether the place is packed for a sports event like the Super Bowl, it is a fun place to be. I recommend that serious beer lovers join their passport club and drink 100 different draughts to earn a personalized mug - then continue to the second and third levels. It is a labor of love, and worth the effort just for bragging rights!
I’ve never seen so many taps in one place. Damn! Some of the taps are for crap beer and some are dry. I ordered 2 different beers that were listed on their menu, but they “were out of that.” I did get to try the Sierra Nevada Bigfoot and the Rogue Old Crustacean barley wines. My date, who is not a hop head, fell in love with Sweetwater’s Sweet Georgia Brown. Our server was very knowledgeable to the point that when I ordered the Bare Knuckled stout (whose tap had been staring at me since we sat down) my server told me it was an AB product. I quickly dismissed this and asked him what he suggested, the response, “Terrapin Wake-n-Bake” Excellent choice. The food was decent and I’m going back tomorrow with my brew buds to try the wings. I’ll update this review after.
Also you can join their Passport Club. Drink 100 beers get some freebies and that is just Tier I. They have 3 tiers and to reach the third tier you’ll have to drink 500 different beers there. Oh, and they have a large selection of bottled beers in case you can’t find what you want on tap.
