Atmosphere-old dive bar, warehouse feel, lots of wood, bar is nice, all draft based with chips for food. Of course the machines are cool, I really like the wood panels in between the machines to rest your beer on.
Quality-nice mix of local (Sixpoint, Brooklyn, etc.) with some good travellers like Victory and Stoudt's, all beers served well. Maybe a little expensive at $6 a pint, but quality is good.
Service-bartenders are no-nonsense, but beers were served right. One did a nice job of breaking up a fight.
Selection-see above, again nice mix of local and outliers.
Food-nothing but chips and jerky, good munchies.
Value-beers are somewhat expensive, games are a quarter apiece.
One last thing, this bar had the potential to be incredible in terms of the arcade scene, but while the games are cheap the vast majority have some sort of control issue, I wish they were better about that. Reduced what could have been amazing to something that was fun once but one I probably won't seek out again.

It's a bar that's also an arcade. Get it? What more is there to say?
Fine. I can say a bit more. They have good prices on great beer (most beers are $6, many beers have over 90 on Beer Advocate. They've even had Bourbon County Stout on draft a few times!). I believe happy hour runs 7 days a week. Happy hour means beers are $1 cheaper. Marble Madness is a really fun game but I don't really want to promote it because I like how no one's ever playing it when I go there. It's also impossible to beat by level 4. Anyway, this place gets super crowded pretty early on Friday and Saturday nights, but during the day and during the week, it's a great, spacious place to chill out.
I come here 9 out of 10 times I'm in Williamsburg. You should too.
