I was at the Convention Center and decided to walk across for some beer. It is very easy to find. It was a crowded Thursday afternoon. It is well-lit. Very thin, but deep. On the right were cooking stations that were open with some tables along it. The thin, but adequately roomy bar was on the left. There were beautiful, young girls serving beers. They seemed a bit overwhelmed by the crowd, but were handling it well.
I sat on the side of the bar that was nearest the cooking stations, as there were no openings on the other side. The heat from the stoves was very uncomfortable. This was a fairly cool day - I can imagine how hot and uncomfortable it would be in the summer. The smells of burgers came over.
The selection was well-rounded. Eight craft beers were on-tap. There was a Barleywine that was cask conditioned in Jack Daniels casks. Interesting, but too early in the day for me...Also, they had an IPA, a stout, a honey brown, an amber, a light golden ale, two seasonals - an O-fest and a Pumpkin. Bud, Heineken and Coors Light were also on the lines. (I thought that they should be separate, if there at all.) Anyway, I had the IPA, which was nice.
I didn't have any food, so I can't comment on it.
The bartender was friendly. It took me a little while to receive my first beer (which was, thankfully, not in a chilled glass), but refills and the growlers came quickly, esp. considering how busy it was.
The prices were $4 for a pint, but the growlers were $18, and $10 for re-fills, which I thought was too high.
Well, it's worth stopping in if you are in AC.

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.

Went here for my buddies bachelor party and my father told me that he and I have been there before but I never really remembered it.

We went there on a Saturday evening so the place was totally packed. Had live entertainment which was nice to listen to. The beer sampler was pretty good I really enjoyed the IPA.

I ordered the chicken tenders and they just give you 5 tenders w no fries for 9 bucks. The one guy got a philly cheese and it was loaded up. So just guessing what you order varies portion size.

Overall it was a really cool place and would like to go back on a week day and see if I would enjoy it with less of a crowd.

I almost skipped this place during my trip to ac due to some of the reviews i read on here. Sure glad I took the chance. first off a convention was in town and the place was absolutely packed, but we were seated within minutes. They even made a spot for our stroller to fit by the table. All the workers we came in contact with were very friendly, I ordered the all american ipa it was served quickly and ice cold. One of the most enjoyable brews ive had in a long while. The food was phenomenal ,we got some burgers they were served quickly,perfectly cooked and tasted delicious. worth every penny, and reasonably priced for atlantic city. got a growler of the ipa to take back to the room with us and enjoyed it in the jacuzzi. i got two brews, two pint glasses to take home ,two awesome burgers, a growler full of ipa and it cost me less than 60 bucks.

A bit out of the way, but a nice little walk from the boardwalk. Very clean and spacious inside and out. I was noticing all the military stuff and came to find out the the owner with in the service and did this after the fact. I really enjoyed the decor, especially the tanks above the bar. The bartender was very friendly, attentive, and knew her stuff. Had spinach and crab dip, a bit rich and filling, but really nice. The food all looked good, but a bit pricy, whereas the beer was decently priced. A cool place, and quite enjoyable.
