So the applebee's of beer joints has made it to Las Vegas, however the luxury of personally knowing that the GM and a regular floor manager are exceptionally competent at their gig, I knew I had to check this place out more than a few times before posting a review.
All the things you'd expect from a mainstream establishment, GordonBiersh'esque stainless steel interior with well thought out art and ambiance lighting, outdoor seating, and essentially a wonderful dining environment. Even when extremely busy the traffic tends to surround only the bar patrons, and therefore most table diners are left alone. The food is excellent, and in my opinion as it should be, as all kinks with the menu should have been ironed out in the CA stores, among other locales as well.
The only qualm with this establishment is, since I'm assuming it is similar to other mainstream dining venues, is that it is susceptible to a high turnover rate among employees and therefore the training and overall beer knowledge (I'm leaving dining out of this review...)is often shoddy. In the four times I've drank at the Vegas location the bartender/server has never heard of or understood the concept of the following: Oatmeal Stout, A Belgian Trappist, A Belgian Lambic, and even refused to pour a new drink in replacement for the stale and obviously outdated Ephemere that was set in front of my date.
Judge as you wish, and feel free to consider me a grumpy gent with a sore eye for mainstream establishments, however upon granting this place more than three attempts I know I like this place more for its dining. This is beer advocate after all, correct?

I really liked this place a very very nice selection of brews, they served something called a shorty I believe (9 oz.) with a very nice price attached to it. The place was very active alot of people there. The staff knew their brew's. I did not have any food, but the plates I saw look pretty good. I would recommend this place and would visit again.
