The times I've been here they've usually had a good jazz trio playing in the background. Not too loud--allows for conversation yet offering some good music--over adds to a pleasant ambiance. Lots of windows also gives it a good vibe. Granted not the dark, dim-lit pub feeling, but still great in its own respect. They have a huge selection of good beers on tap and a fair amount in bottle as well. I had some food--a burger, I think--which was good but don't remember too much about their food. Usually when I've been there its been pretty busy but haven't had trouble getting a table. It's a decent size so shouldn't be the type of place that runs out of room easily.

They have 77 rotating craft beer taps and their turn over is fast enough that the taps remain fresh. They back the taps up with 30 or 40 bottled beers. I am in a rut and have been eating their angus cheese burger every month or so for the past three years - it is that good. The crowd can get loud but not oppressively so. Their charcuterie plate makes a nice after work snack to wash down with a few craft beers. If you stay long enough, try their dinner menu - its excellent.
