Visited during the weekend of 5/9/08 - 5/10/08.

I had heard seating was tough here, and it is. But both times I visited, I was able to get a seat at the bar with no wait (once for a party of two then again for a party of four).

The bartenders are very friendly and personable. I didn't need their beer expertise to decide what to drink, but I saw them helping some craft newbies decide on a brew.

The draft selection is solid and is probably the best thing they have to offer. Be warned that pints are pricey, though.

Food is, to put it mildly, seriously overpriced. Burgers can easily run over $20.00 without much effort. If they were truly $20.00 burgers, this would be acceptable. But I feel these burgers and sides (brought in frozen or prepackaged, no less) are worth perhaps half to two thirds what is being charged. You are definitely paying for the scene.

Speaking of scene... it is crowded with youngish, good looking people. Saw lots of beer being consumed, but also saw a good amount of other beverages. I don't think the craft beer list is the main attraction for most of the diners.

Some places have deserved reps for great burgers (Father's Office and Lucky Devil's in L.A., for instance), but this place is getting by on its inexplicable "hot" status. Don't get me wrong, the food is good. But it's not buzz worthy.

I don't think I'll be going back here again unless it's to grab a pint on the way to eat somewhere else.

I would not waste your time trekking to this place if you're not already staying at Mandalay. After reading some reviews about strip craft beer places, I made the effort to get here from MGM, about a mile walk, not a huge thing. Was not worth it at all. The tap list was meh. It might be better at other times, but most of it was your typical wanna be craft from familiar sources, with a couple decent brews interspersed. The best brew on the list was Dogfish 90 minute. After that, had a local IPA from Joseph James, it was so so. Last, I decided to pull from the bottle list and had Stone IPA. They a few nice beers in their cellar but unless you're cool with paying 60 for a Sucaba, you won't be touching them. The service while sitting at the bar was terrible, one bartender who was constantly pooring drinks for the wait staff and didn't give a hoot about anything else. Food could have been decent, nice burgers. After a long wait, being served a cold burger and flaming hot onion rings did it for me. Not coming back. The Pub at Monte Carlo is the much better option. This place sucks....at least when I was there. Sitting down at a table might give you better service too.

An excellent selection of beers, very well organized on the menu, both on tap and in bottles. great prices for outstanding beers. Being from the east coast, there is a wide selection of beers that I normally can't get. To top if off, the burgers are fantastic.
