OK...so, compare to Tanks Bar and Grill (the other fav beer haunt in Dayton), Chappys wins...
but they're different enough that they almost serve two different audiences. Chappys has the better beer selection, and better food, but it comes at a cost, literally.
you go to these two places for two different reasons: Chappys for a special occasion, and Tanks for a flat-out-great neighborhood experience.
Just TRY Chappys loaded chips or their po-boys. bar none in the Dayton area.
if only their beer club was less constricting, limiting you to such standard fare as sam adams, i'd be there every week. as is, the buds and i make it once or twice a month...
highly recommended. you don't get much better than this in Dayton, really....

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.

Chappys is an interesting place in a stip mall in South Dayton. I go there a couple times a month to see what's on tap (30+ taps). Lot of Belgians if that's your style. Staff are friendly. Always set at in the bar area as opposed to the restaurant seating section. It may be this dichotomy that makes it kinda strange. Not sure if they want to be a restaurant or a bar or brewpub or what. It's OK but the vibe is odd. Food is good but the menu never changes so that can get old quick. Parking is generally available but being in a strip mall it can be hit or miss at times with the other businesses.

Incredible selection of beer that is in constant rotation, so it's easy to find new beers every time you go. The food is fantastic, definitely try the white BBQ sauce. Love going here and being part of their beer club makes things fun. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.
