Oh my.
Atmosphere: Mix matched chairs cover a two story location. Upstairs more dinner seating, downstairs tables around the impressive bar. You must have "X" many tattoos in order to work here, but you must know beer too.

Quality: Was concerned about the age of bottles and some of the taps given the extensive selection, so stuck to more local brews on tap. All in excellent condition and appropriately served.

Service: Friendly, knowledgeable, attentive even during a busy evening rush, top notch.

Selection: Just silly. So many tap selections, so many bottle selections, a freaking firkin. Just wow.

Food: One of the best steaks I've had. Hard to say from a Texan. Everything was tasty and multiple dining partners had only praise.

Value: Through the roof. Cheap eats, very reasonable beer prices, excellent quality, just a world class place. Almost enough to make me consider living in OKC.

Perfect. It doesn't get any better than this. I went hoping that they might have at least one Belgian style beer, and maybe a Rueben sandwich, and I was simply blown away with the selection of quality beer on tap, and then the incredible bottled beer cellar collection, and then a superb Rueben. However, as good as this was, the service, and in particular the bartender, was even better. What a wonderful stop on my way from Knoxville to Amarillo.

The parking sucks, but other than that, it's a nice spot. Three levels, nice staff. Beer selection is awesome, food is on point

Got the Irish lunch. A Guinness and a bowl of irish stew for like 7 bucks. It was great. I love this place.
