This is by far the best bar in Dayton, If you sit at the bar. Every time I go here it seems like eternity to get another beer. Now that I've expressed my only complaint... how about why its so good. Every Monday is half off large, and extra-large pizza's. The pizza is some of the best in Dayton. They have some very different pizza's you won't find most places. Gyro pizza, gordon blu pizza, and the seafood pizza just to name a few. The quality and taste of this pizza is well worth full price, getting at half price just let's me get more of the amazing beers they have on draft. The draft board is always changing to. I go at least once a week and have not seen the same list of beers twice. Definitely worth the trip from cinci or c-bus.

Visited for lunch on Halloween to talk business. Will definitely be coming back.
Atmosphere: Cozy and clean joint. Booths, bar tables, TVs - a typical small bar type atmosphere, but well lit and not at all a dive. Nice big chalkboard sign as you walk through the door showing what's on tap. Interesting to see a wide range of people in the place. Father and young college son having lunch, several businessmen, some locals, and a big crowd of friends getting together for an event. Very accommodating.
Quality: Lots of high quality beers available on tap and in bottles in a cooler behind the bar. I did see 1-2 macros, but from what I've seen of this place, it's so they have something for everyone - plenty for those who love craft beers and imports, and also something for someone who just wants a simple US macro lager.
Service: It was very crowded I think unexpectedly so for the staff in the place. There was a large crowd at the tables (a special get together) So while it took quite some time to get served, the waitress hustled as best as she could and took 10% off the bill (with no prompting from us) due to the wait. Beers were served in the proper glasses - Tulips for the Belgian ales, and Nonic glasses for the lagers that were ordered by others in the party.
Selection: I can't remember the wide range of things they had on Tap, but definitely a good range of seasonals, imports, US craft, 1 cider, and 1 macro lager (Labatts). To my surprise, they had on tap Kwak, one of my favorite Belgian ales, which was what I had with lunch. They had quite a bit from Bell's and I think a few choices from Stone, but again, I can't remember. Behind the counter I saw several Lambics, quite a few 22oz bombers, several imports (Weihenstephaner, Sam Smith, Piraat is what I remember). Honestly, something for everyone with the choices they had. I don't think you would be disappointed.
Food: Not a huge selection, but a neat selection of pizza, calzones, and sandwiches. I had the Gyro pizza which was fantastic. I will have to come back and try some more things off the menu.
Price was very good. 4 people, 5 beers, 2 calzones and one large pizza - $53 total.
