Great selection and sandwiches, long waits for tables, rude staff,very drunk patrons,and the few times I was there it was mid afternoon ! Lots of kids, basically free roaming kids while there parents get drunk. On guy actually disciplined a kid by picking him up by his foot and holding him up toward the ceiling,while the crowd and staff roared with laughter, not for mature craft beer, shame because the potential is there

Fat Head's has the most consistently interesting tap list in the city. I can't really think of anything that would even be close. They seem to have really increased their own offerings, with around 10 of the draft lines for at least the last 6 months. Frequently top selections like IBUsive and Barrel-Aged Battleaxe are available, but it seems impossible to go wrong with a Fat Head's brew as long as it is a style you like. There are a bunch of styles that I have become interested in just by trying them here. They do a very good job of bringing in other interesting drafts too, and unlike a few of the competitors in and around the city they seem to do it within normal distribution channels. It can get crowded, and there isn't much room in the bar area. The food selection is extensive. It wouldn't be healthy to eat there too often, but you can't find better tasting bar food in my opinion.
