Saturday was the first time I have been to D's since they remodeled from a small hallway to a full scale eatery. I just went in for beers to go, so I cannot speak for the draft selection and food...

Good atmosphere...a variety of people...families, singles, at tables and the bar. The main dining area is separate from the bar, so that is nice.

The staff is friendly and helpful...the girl who rang me up was knowledgeable also.

The selection is always what D's has been known for. They have a giant beer cave that houses 1000+ mix and match bottles. Great selection of craft and imports. They also have a walk in cooler where you can purchase mix and match bottles and sixers.

I haven't has food there for a number of years, so I do not feel right giving them a rating, but last time I had a dog there it was very good... (826 characters)

Food is pretty good but that's the only really redeeming thing about D's. The beer selection isn't nearly as amazing as it's cracked up to be and the prices are insane. Space is very small/cramped and if there's a wait, forget about it. (236 characters)

I have a love and hate relationship with this D's. Its crowded everytime i walk in here, and it being small doesnt help. So i walk back to the "beer cave" to get some space. Iv never been greeted by an employee asking if i need help looking for something, and when i approach one they seem to know nothing about beer. They do have a great selection of beers, some of which are hard to find, but the prices for those beers are laughable. $13 for a 12oz bottle of Wulver!? Every time i buy a six pack its around $25. Most of the time theyre highly rated beers, but they dont need to charge this much to make a solid profit. Ill be making the drive to House of 1000 beers from now on, as they have a better selection, and certain beers are cheaper (744 characters)

Prices to go were so high I laughed myself out of the store. Great selection, though, if you have $33 to spend on BA Narwhal. (125 characters)

This place falsely advertises as a six-pack store when it is not. IT IS A SINGLES STORE!!!!! It's owners are clearly interested in selling single bottles to greedily garnish the markup they can demand on singles. Yes, they have a large selection of beers, but who wants to pay an average of $3.50 per bottle? IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!!! One six-pack I had to build of Lagunitas Little Sumpin' cost me more than $2 than I've paid at multiple other locations! IT SHOULD BE $2 LESS AS I HAD TO SUPPLY THE LABOR TO BUILD IT!!! Another six I built cost me over $18 for beers I later found near my town selling for six prices at around $11. The term HIGHWAY ROBBERY clearly fits here as when one travels to far off places one likes to acquire beers not found in his hometown. (778 characters)

The selection is extensive, but look carefully at the bottle dates. Stuff like Troegs Perpetual and Head Hunter has always been fresh, but the more exotic stuff, like Firestone Walker Double Jack, can be more than a year old. For the most part I think the prices are reasonable. The person below that said there is a 10% six pack discount is incorrect, the discount is $1 off all to go bottles. Standard stuff like Sierra Nevada and Stone is $3/bottle, so a good mix and match 6-pack can be $12. There are some egregious prices, like $39.95 for Older Viscosity and $14 for Wulver, but thankfully it doesn't appear that people are buying those. There are probably 20 draft lines and they are usually solid, but not overly exciting. The food is hotdogs, pizza and a few sandwiches and other miscellaneous items. It's not high quality stuff, but it's sufficient as long as you don't go in expecting a gourmet meal. Overall, I wish there were better options in the area but I spend plenty of time here.

Also, upstairs at The Loft there is a great happy hour with half-priced drafts from 6-8, which is the latest happy hour I've seen. The draft list is different and less extensive up there, but can sometimes have some really good stuff. (1,235 characters)
