This place has atmosphere written all over it. It is a great wooden floor pub with dart boards, a long bar, a comfy lounge upstairs, and a tree-shaded biergarden out back that begs spring & fall to last all year. The quality is great, as they know their beers, how to keep them, and how to serve them. The service often leaves something to be desired, and is the weak point here. The staff is great, there just aren't enough of them. The selection is wonderful, really one of the two best in town. There is a goodly selection of taps and a larger selection of bottles with constant new brews to try in each format. The food is good but very limited. The cheese platter is the way to go to stem the munchies. All in all a fantastic place & I'd recommend it any time you're near downtown Dallas.

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.

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon while visiting a friend in Dallas. Found easy street parking, then saw that they had a parking lot. Either way, plenty of parking (at least in the afternoon).

The weather was nice so we sat on the front porch, where there are a few tables. It's a neat spot. It's a converted house. We didn't hang around inside, but the bar looked good and there were more tables out back. Definitely a fun, cozy atmosphere. Saw multiple people wearing Deep Ellum Brewery T-shirts, and random friends meeting up. The bartender knew some people by name. Dogs are welcomed.

It was unclear weather we would have table service or not, because there were menus on the table and we saw a few employees walking around. After waiting for a while we figured out we needed to order at the bar. There was one bartender, so it was a bit of a wait even though the place wasn't crowded.

Selection was very good. Wide variety of styles, and some Texas beers. I actually was surprised there weren't more Texas beers, based on the reviews that said they had a lot of locals. One from Deep Ellum, two from (512), and multiple from St.Arnold's. Still a solid list overall.

I would definitely stop here again next time I'm in Dallas.
