Chappy's has been open for a few months, and I have now been there a handful of times. In particular, they have a lot of tvs, and the Big 10 Network, so I watched a few games there. Chappy's has a bar area, that is sort of enclosed, with several tables. There are also two dining areas. The atmosphere is more of an upscale sports bar, without being overly swanky.

Chappy's has a good tap selection, and a pretty good bottle selection. There are around 30 taps, but only a handful seem to rotate. Selection includes Bell's 2 Hearted, Buckeye Hippie IPA, DFH 90 min., Chimay White, Erdinger Hefe, and Hennepin. Season handles do change, most recent including Bell's Winter White, GLBC Xmas, and New Holland Dragon's Milk. Bottle selection is probably around 40 or 50, and run across styles just at the tap list. Good variety of glassware.

Each time, service has been good, and very friendly. Food includes some good BBQ ribs, fried chicken, fish, a few salads and appitizers. When I have been there, most people seem very pleased with the sides, such as cole slaw, green beans, etc. Prices seem a bit high for food, but for draft beer it is reasonable. Bottles can be pricy depending on the particular beer.

Chappy's is a good place to grab a bite, and wash it down with a couple great brews. You could watch a game there, or just simply enjoy conversation. This was well needed in this area.

Neat little place close to home. A little broken up between bar area and dining areas. Also a bit too dark, especially for reading menu's.

We were there for a reserved birthday party. The staff set up more than enough seating for our number of guests. That was nice.

I had an apple martini and a sangria. The sangria was wonderful! So if your wife doesn't like beer, there are other options available by the glass.

My husband asked for Sam Adams, but was surprised when they didn't have it at least by bottle. He settled for both a Clown Shoes Space Cake and the Luchador En Fuego. He said the Space Cake was very good, but the Luchador En Fuego was too much. Could hardly tell it was a beer. Could be better as a cocktail mixer.

The server was knowledgeable about the beers my husband talked about and quick to return to the table to check on us. They were very busy too as it was a Saturday night.

Food was excellent but a bit pricy, although all the portions of what everyone ordered were huge! Almost everyone took home a to-go box. I had the Garlic Shrimp linguini. It was a special for the night and awesome! My husband had the full rack of ribs, and said they were very, very good.

All in all, very good place to eat and so many different beers, (except for Sam Adams), that it makes it fun to go there.
