Visited here while in Dallas area for business in late June ’15. After visiting two places the previous two days that were the complete opposite of this place (Braindead Brewing and Small Brewpub) this was like walking into a McDonald’s Brewpub. Yeah, it’s huge and all, but nothing really original about itv- corporate America written all over it. None of their own were on tap - the menu said something about equipment malfunction. Able to pick up a couple of Texas ticks, so it was not a total waste. Food was decent, I had chicken fried steak. Service was serviceable, prices were just just a tad high, but not outrageous. Won’t be back unless a travel partner insists.
Visited on 2-18-2013. A big establishment next to Bass Pro. The bar is upstairs with booths, bar tables, and a lot of bar seating. There were nine beers on tap. I did the beer sampler which is five beers that are 5oz. each. They also have growlers. I did not order any food, but the prices seemed to be high for lunch and dinner. The appearance is clean and laid back. The server was not overly friendly for whatever reason. She was not rude, just not friendly. This establishment is worth stopping at.

Visited February 2013.
First stop, right out of the airport. This place is inside a large hunting/camping supply store. Can’t remember if it was Bass Pro or some other chain. And the brewpub is a large steak house. So this is basically a redneck destination, not that I have anything against that. The bar is upstairs overlooking the dining hall. They have a fair number of house taps going and the service and food are decent but the beer needs some serious work. They brew on a good sized system for (presumably) not distributing. If I stop back in it’ll be while buying ammo or to ride out traffic.
Visited for dinner on a Monday night. Located nearby (to the North) of DFW airport. My initial reaction was just how enormous this place was, I mean it is an enormous space. Somehow I had not grasped this was part of the Bass Pro shopping complex. Huge beer hall type setup on the main floor, upstairs to an equally huge 2nd floor bar, that also had a bunch of tables and booths and tvs about. I did the sampler 5 beer sampler (served in nice 5 ounce mini footed Pils glasses) and the steak sandwich. The beer was pretty meh, and the food was merely passable. Overall, this place has a sort of a theme park vibe to it. I guess it would be a good place for a work group, or some such outing.
The atmosphere in this place is just awesome! It looks like a giant lodge with probably a 40 to 50 foot vaulted ceiling. The actual bar area is upstairs overlooking the restaurant area and they had the beer tanks on display on the bottom floor. I had the Sportsman Ale which was average but overall the experience was pleasant.
This place was something else!! .. stuffed and mounted animals everywhere, HUGE eating hall, pretty good service, fantastic food with huge portions and a healthy variety of house brews, which were basic but enjoyable .. . I really had a good time, and enjoyed the thunderstorm on the way to pyramids..
Just finished the 2010 Chili Cook-off Firemen’s benefit at the Bass-Pro Shop parking lot and won the "2010 People Choice Award" (87 teams) and needed a place to celebrate. We went to the bar which has some awesome appetizers and micro brew. You can see my beer ratings and in my opinion the Redhead Ale is by far the best followed by the IPA. The ambiance in the bar is great and wasn’t crowded at all during the Ranger playoff game 2 beating up on the Yanks to go 1-1 for the series. Nice screen TV’s. The beer-tender’s were great and was quite knowledgeable about their brews as a requirement to work there by the head Brewmaster. I’m a home brewer myself so I enjoy talking about beers. Appetizers were great but the food there might be a little pricy. They are connected to the Bass Pro shop and the hotel. We received a Bass Pro gift card as our prize and Uncle Bucks gladly accepted it for food and drinks. The next time I go with friends I might buy the 64 oz full growler for $12 bucks and ask for a couple of glasses to share. Refills are only $7 which isn’t bad if you’re buying the next round. Enjoy!!!
