4.08/5  rDev -2.6%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 3.5 | selection: 5 | food: 2

As this establishment is a converted old-style home tucked away minutes from downtown, this place still has a very homey look and air to it. You feel like you're walking into someone's redecorated living room with low lighting and wooden pub furnishings.

The bar includes a semi-spacious seating area with small tables but a larger patio exists out back, weather permitting. A large front porch also accommodates customers as well as some room upstairs, away from the main crowd. The main room can get noisy with the crush and music but not terribly so, as the customer base tends to be slightly older than your ubiquitous college kid.

The beer selection is impressive with 70 taps and 100 or so in bottles, rivaled locally only by the Flying Saucer. A rotating offering is kept on cask, something I woefully wish more local pubs would embrace. Primarily bar service with a knowledgeable staff but I did notice some table service beginning late in the evening.

Due to recent city smoking regulations, the food menu has been cut back to bare-bones to allow smoking inside. Typical bar sandwiches, not all that exceptional. But who has time for food when a fresh cask is merely a few feet away? Highly recommended on any visit to the Big D.

vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.75 | service: 5 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4.5 | $$

Great selection of beer, both on top and bottled. Love the way the menu is setup, listing draught beers by type and bottled beers by country. Ask the waitress about the seasonal beers they have not listed on the menu and she'll steer you in the right direction. The beer garden atmosphere in the back is hard to be matched in Dallas. The German style pretzels are amazing. Quality place right here.
