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.

4.65/5  rDev +3.8%
vibe: 4.75 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 5 | food: 4.5 | $$

Location: As other reviewers have said, toughest part is finding a parking spot. Would recommend early arrival or you may have to walk a bit. Inside the bar has three levels so you can kinda choose your environment (horse shoe bar, tables area, smoking bar)

Quality: All the on tap stuff is good and fresh. You can occasionally get a bottle past its prime but you face the same risk at most such establishments, most bottles are great.

Service: Been here several times and the staff is always friendly and knows their stuff. One time I helped educate a new hire about some different beer, but the fact that she was curious and listens to customers so well is just a mark of great service to come

Selection: Top Notch. You'll be hard pressed to find more of what's available in Oklahoma.

Food: Better than most bar food you'll find for that price. I would eat here but I would not go just for the food.

Overall: This is a great place to visit and one of my favorites in OKC. Definitely worth stopping by if you are in town.

My favorite place to get a pint in OKC. Good food and great selection! I would strongly recommend this place to anyone wanting some great beer in a relaxed atmosphere. This location has three levels. The first floor is a horseshoe type bar with tables around the edges, the second floor is all tables, the third door is another bar and is the smoking section.
