I was visiting from out of town, and went for food and beers with friends. They have a confusing name, but it's basically a sports and wing bar with lots of TVs and lots of beers on tap. Similar to Buffalo Wild Wings chain, but much better in every way.
With the like 100 beers on tap, you can certainly find something you like. Nothing super rare, but a nice variety. All of the taps are in a row on the wall behind the bar, so hopefully that goes directly into their keg fridge so no beer is sitting in warm tap lines when I would guess that kegs last a while. I had a few pints of local Atlanta beer.
Food was a mix of wings, bar food, and southwestern. Decent, but nothing special. Our server was fine.

Well lit large room with high ceilings, with large-screen television sets all around. Kind of like the inside of the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in the commercials where the ref. fixes the game to run longer, so that sport nuts can stay and drink longer. Anyways, I had a taco dish for my entree, which I found to be delicious, and for beer I saw quiet a few good selections, with me focusing on regional stuff that is not widely available in the Northeast(and that I got), but I couldn't help but pass by some Brooklyn limited release stuff and such. The server did not necessarily posses beer geek type knowledge, but was able to give info based on what he knew.
All in all, a good place.

Hit the Lindbergh location for the first time recently when meeting a friend for lunch. Given the location, I was expecting something closer to Metropolis than the Dallas Hwy location... I was let down
Selection wise, they had very little special to offer. The lineup of taps meant probably 50% to crap, 20% to Sweetwater/Terrapin and the rest to other craft beers. Nothing really caught my attention so I just went with the standard Sweetwater IPA - oh wait, they were out. I ended up with a Festina Peche, not the best beer but a style you don't see every day and it was listed as "new" so I knew it was still fresh.
Food wise, typical TM fat and salt concoctions, and just average at that. We did have a good server, even though we were there when it was pretty packed out for lunch.
Lindbergh is a pretty typical Taco Mac, other than the selection really could use some imagination.

Went here to watch the UGA v ASU game.
As far as the atmosphere goes, this is a sports bar through and through. Lots of seating in the main room with TV's everywhere. There's a good amount of seating outside, but I wish there were a few TV's out there as well. The bar is the back corner, and there's also an upstairs with more TV's and a good amount of additional seating.
Quality is good. I've been here before, and unlike those times I didn't have to bother asking for an unchilled glass as they were so busy the glasses came straight from the washing racks. The pours were a bit lacking, but again, they were really busy. Everything I ordered came in a standard unlabelled pint glass.
Service is pretty good. Once we finally got a table - no fault of the restaurant, just a lot of people there - it took longer than it should to get a server. Once we did get one however, the drinks and food came out quickly.
Selection is solid. Over 100 on-tap, with all regional brews - Sweetwater, Terrapin and ABC - along with many other micros. They were out of the first two things I ordered, but there were plenty of other options.
Food is good. I went with the buffalo chicken tenders and everything else that was ordered was solid.
Value is good. Pretty standard as far as Atlanta bars go.
Overall this place is exactly as advertised. Lots of TV's and lots of taps, just don't expect anything too rare.

This is a very commercial establishment but they do have a decent selection of beer.
The menu advertises 100 on tap and 301 in the bottle. They're well displayed in a very compact series of taps and a four door refrigerated section of bottles close by. The quantity is impressive but the quality is a bit watered down with lots of BMC and other mass produced crap. But they have enough quality to offset that. They have a lot of locals along with some good east coast beers like DFH and Victory. There's not a lot from the west coast.
The feel of the place is similar to a Chili's or Friday's but with more of a sports bar feel. They have a nice sized bar, lots of tables and plenty of TVs. I was alone on business but I can imagine this is a great family place. The service is average. It's a young staff and they seem just as content talking to each other as they do serving up the beer.
So it's got its pluses (quantity and enough good beers) and minuses (lots of lesser beers, commercial atmosphere) but I recommend giving it a try.

Large and open, it has plenty of tables and booths and a fair amount of bar seating, plus at least one private room upstairs. Beer selection is fabulous - lots on-tap and in bottles, plenty of craft brews and imports. The menu has a code to alert the reader about high-gravity beers and large bottles. Food is OK, if not outstanding. The wait staff are fairly quick, efficient and reliable. They can easily accommodate a large group even with short notice. Noise level is high when the place is jumping, but the many TVs are kept mostly quiet unless there is a major sports event on.
