I can't remember which terminal this one was in, I didn't even realize there were 2 spots until I started to write this review!
This particular tap-house was crammed full of people, but we were able to get a small two-top table during the lunch rush. Loud R&B music and the chatter of patrons thundered through the small space. The food options were limited to a small selection of salads, chicken wings, burgers and sandwiches--pretty standard pub fare. We ordered beers, and IPA for me and a Georgia Brown Ale for Sj, but it took nearly 20 minutes to get them. I was starting to feel glad we had a long lay-over as this wasn't looking good for actually getting food. The IPA was fair, but to me seemed more like a pale ale, lacking the strong hop aroma and flavor I expect from the style. When we ordered food our server seemed like he was having a hard time remembering what we wanted (boneless wings for me and a quesadilla for Sj) despite a distinct lack of complexity to our order. A few minutes later he returned to clarify Sj's order again. Twenty minutes later our food arrived: room temperature wings for me and a chicken salad for my wife. Yup, despite re-checking with us our order was still fouled (fowled?) up! A while later the quesadilla arrived and we were able to eat. The silver lining to the extreme time-lag was that I did get to try a pint of the Festive Ale, a pleasantly spiced holiday ale. When our bill came to us it was done incorrectly (chicken salad's revenge!) Do I expect an amazing dining experience in an airport? Not really, but there is an understanding that airport restaurants should be used to moving people through quickly and problem free.

Reviewing the location in Terminal A. I had some food and beers while waiting for a flight.
As with any Airport place, they jam in as many tables and chairs as possible into a tiny area. I sat at the bar so I could watch football on the two TV's above the bar.
They had the LowRyder, Motor Boat, 420, IPA, Blue, and Brown on tap, plus for whatever reason Yuengling and Bud Light. Not great, but as good as you can expect in an Airport. Beers were $6.5 which again is steep, but goes with the territory.
The food was limited menu pub grub, I had a quesadilla and boneless wings. Served their purpose. The Bartender was friendly and giving people samples if they asked about a beer.
