vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 5 | food: 4 | $$$

One of the best places I have ever been for a beer and a meal. As you walk in there is a long wood bar that covers the right hand side. Tables are scattered about. There is an upstairs area as well, though it looked closed because of the slow Sunday night. There is a side bar and a beer garden was mentioned as well, though I did not see it. It must have been in the back of the building. A very relaxing and chill atmosphere.

The beer selection is great. As good as anything I have seen in Houston, or anywhere. I did not count, but they have a huge selection of taps. It looked like they had twice as many bottles. Along with two cask handles, both are Marshall's. One for McNellie's Pub Ale (which I enjoyed several of), the other was the IPA. The other highlights for me were Fuller's London Porter, Pride, and ESB. Lots of Belgian and German beers as well. Lots of US micros with an OK beer flight. Lots of Boulevard beers. The bottle highlight for me was Fuller's Vintage Ale. Though there was such a huge selection, I don't think I looked at all the beers they had to offer.

The service was great. The bartender new about the beer and the history of the bar. He was quick and friendly. I can't ask for much more. The food was also top notch. I had a great grilled pork chop, and the side salad was no less impressive (with homemade blue cheese dressing, awesome). One of the few beer bars were the food is on par with the selection. The only thing to complain about was the price. It was $5.50 for a pint of Marshall's, and my diner was not cheap.

Do yourself a favor and check this place out if visiting Tulsa. I would be here every day if it was in Houston.

Amazing environment, the food is out of this world, the service is great 99% of the time. There is a smoking and non-smoking section, which you just don't see anymore. Not to mention, they have the largest beer selection in town. 60 handles and about 250 bottles. Fun activities held year round, check out the centennial club, and buy a mug, because you'll be back!
