I was split in judging the atmosphere of this place. On the one hand, it was a nice, spacious restaurant that highlighted historical military artifacts. On the other hand, it was jam-packed with tourists who neither added nor detracted from my experience. The food was no better than a chain restaurant's, and the quality of the beer was not good. The only standout that I've had just recently was the Hefeweisse (A-). Service was friendly, but in short supply. In short, this establishment is another example of one which benefits from a slam-dunk location. If you want better beer, hit the Firewaters beer bar in the Tropicana Marketplace for a great selection of quality brews.

I saw the luke-warm reviews here but my wife and I were across the street at the AC Convention Center and I figured why not give them a shot for lunch. I'm the kind of guy who chooses a restaurant on their beer selection first, food second.
We sat at the bar and had a very nice bartender. The beer selection was ordinary. The obligatory "light" beer for the Coors crowd, a pale ale, Irish red (I guess a Killian clone), stout, a weiss, an IPA and two special brews. One a wee heavy, and a "Belgian strong".
Being a hop lover I opted for the IPA. Decent but nothing to write home about. Sufficiently bitter but lacked (at least to my liking) enough finishing hops to satisfy me. My wife who doesn't share my affinity for hops liked the wee heavy. I thought it was true to it's style. She liked the stout although I felt it was a bit thin. The Belgian strong was I suppose a dubbel. Dark, strong and probably one of their better attempts.
Food is pub fare. I won't say it sucked, but pretty close. At least what we had. I had a buffalo chicken salad for $15. It came drenched, I mean dripping in bleu cheese dressing. The chicken was pretty tasty but that much bleu cheese ruined it for me. The wife had a turkey burger she described as mediocre.
I wouldn't recommend this place although the ambiance was rather nice. If you want good beer you'll go elsewhere.
