the waitresses are totally hot!!!

the owner is totally drunk!!!

the managers' necks sadly do not exist!!!

the lighting will give you seizures!!

the music is some teeny-bopper tween-er shite!!

there are guys lurking around the pool tables in giant shiny shorts -- in which it looks like a massive dump has been taken. and you won't be shocked to learn also that those same guys have huge beer-bellys protruding from satin, colorful, sports-themed attire & are also sporting chin-strap beards.

meanwhile, the food is totally generic and mediocre!!

& the atmosphere is your worst-nightmare sports-bar.... on ALOT of meth!!!
[there are alot of baseball caps with ~very~ bent brims!]

all in all, it makes you really contemplate suicide.

i'll be going back for the Bud, bud. respekt bieers, yo.

I was in town on busines visiting the University of Montana for two nights and wound up eating and having a couple of beers here each night.

The first night was with my boss and was focused a bit more on work. While this is not a brewpub, they do carry taps from the local breweries (which close their tap rooms at 8pm due to state law). The service on night one was good, our food was very good, and we each had a couple of local Montana brews (really couln't be taking beer notes with in from of my boss). They probably had 15 taps with very little macro domestic.

The second night, Thursday, I came in around 8:30 and sat at the bar. It seemed like all the bartenders were trying to avoid me so when I was finally waited on, I ordered an Arrogant Bastard. I had the "kitchen hot" wings. I told them to make them as hot as they could and they came out very hot - coming from a guy who likes spicy food.

Overall a very nice place with as complete a beer selection as you may find in Missoula.

Really large, family-friendly brewpub. On a Saturday evening, the place was split between college kids out enjoying beer on the patio and parents with little leaguers. Nice woodwork and valuted ceilings, but too many neon signs to make the place remarkable. Since I showed up with a party of almost 20, we got a banquet space in a loft above the main floor. Great food - the salads are amazing, and the half-order was more than enough to feed my sizeable appetite. Excellent service for our huge party, too, especially considering the servers had to climb a flight of stairs to get to us. Beer selection was pretty good - over 25 taps with brews from all over the northwest, and a couple of macro swill taps to keep the unadventurous locals happy. Overall, a great experience.

Made a stop here for dinner on my way to a bike race and I was not disappointed. The atmosphere is about that of the average sports bar. The beer selection was pretty good with a wide range of beers on tap mostly Montana micros but nothing spectacular. The service was pretty good considering the place was packed when we went in. However the food was amazing and by far the best part. It was mostly standard pub type fare but it was excellent with very large portions which made the prices very very reasonable.
Overall I really enjoyed eating here and would recommend to anyone I know to stop in if they are in Missoula.

Visited here with Da Boss on 9-2-11 on our way from Idaho Falls to Seeley Lake.

Atmosphere was OK, wide array of peeps here on a late Friday lunch hour. Everything from business people to cussin' moms with their youngins to tourists like Da Boss and I.

Quality was OK, comfortable atmosphere, ample space that was mostly filled.

Service was good, friendly but she was stressed from the territory she had to cover.

Selection of brew was good. Mainly Montana micros, menu was a bit behind what was on tap but it was nice to have local flavor available.

Food was good, we split a spinach salad and turkey sandwich, both very tasty. The potato salad was identical to Da Boss' recipe - quite nice!

Overall reasonably priced - $3.50 pints, food was fairly priced as well. Nice place to visit, downtown Missoula near the UM campus.
