This place opened up not a mile from my house, but I have been slow to actually go out east & try it out. I'm very glad I did.

The restaurant is very casual, and more of a bar than I was imagining. Nicely lit, but not too dark...lots of wood and deep earth colours. Nice looking bar too, lots of stools & hightop table space everywhere. It was friday night and while it filled up, it was never too crowded. We noticed a few BA people there next to us at the bar.

The beer selection was equally impressive & unexpected. I was very content - and I wish now that I showed up earlier, instead of being ready to go home after only 3 beers. The beers were all priced extremely competitvely, especially for the boston beerbar scene (and the priced for all the different drafts are listed right on the menu, which is nice).

The food was excellent pub stuff...we have the mac & cheese & a burger -they were both great. The fries (both traditional and sweet potato) are solid.

I am definitely going back to this place soon....I can see it becoming more of a regular spot for me.

Oh yea, there was a really cool band playing some sort of jazzy gypsie stuff that I loved....

My first impression is of the large all wood bar. It takes up two thirds of the place and it wraps around to where the hard liquor is kept. There's even mirrors like in the Wild West movies. There are five two-top tables near the window and perhaps twice that many in the back. The furthest wall from the street features perhaps the smallest stage known to entertainment--a drum set takes up 75% of the space.

Now for the beers, there are 25-30 of them on tap with another 75? in bottles. I found five on tap which I've never had (just shy of 3,000 rated). This is a pretty good ratio in my book. The service was quite good, there when I needed but not overly obtrusive.

I did not try the food, but from what I witnessed, everyone was enjoying their typical bar-grub fare.

This a bit between a dive bar and a sophisticated beer bar--a great combination in my book.
