Sort of a dusty old place in a less than upscale area of Buffalo (is there an upscale area in Buffalo?). Lots of dark wood and beams with dusty college team pennants hanging on them. Long bar with about twenty circular wooden chairs. Several tables for dining. Roughly 30 taps, much of it pretty decent quality, nothing spectacular. Southern Tier Oatmeal Stout was my first selection and I can't recall the rest. Wings were very good. The knucklehead coworker of mine ordered a Bud, but the other guy has grown to become a craft fan and appreciated the offerings as I did. Service was good, though the barkeep at times seemed overwhelmed even though there were only a handful of patrons in the building. Arguably, the best you're going to get in Buffalo which is sort of sad. Still, worthy of a visit if you're in the area.

Been going to Cole's for years. Food is great, everything, from brunch to dinner to chicken wings. Draft list rotates very well and they do a good job of keeping some local beers on the list most of the time. The bar is long, but there is only six feet of room behind the bar stools and a lot of the time the people who end up at the bar are not very welcoming to you ordering a beer around them. Bartenders are slow at times and do not know a great deal about the beers(rotating taps so I understand). Most of a time its a great place to go for a drink and some food, but the bar can be very crowded and that is my only real complaint.

This is my favorite bar and restaurant in Upstate NY!!! Perfect location on Buffalo's hippest and best neighborhood with a college theme. Incredible draft beer selection and bottle selection. Love this place because 45 year old conservative wife slightly uncomfortable with the hip bar. I cannot say enough about this place. If I lived in this neighborhood I would be there Thursday through Sunday.

Very popular bar with the beer and non beer crowd alike. Likely the best American craft tap list in the area. At times can be overwhelmingly busy and hard to get a beer at. Servers run from knowledgable to clueless as you would expect. Food is slightly aboe average "pub" food. Expect to see a lot of suits and their "dates". Usually a slightly older crowd compaired to Goodbar. Never a bad choice as there's always something new to tick.
