Great atmosphere, cool vibe, lots of old tap handles... everywhere. While the quality of beer available was ok, the selection was not good at all. Being around the corner from some great Jax breweries and being able to pull in some CCB, they had ZERO FL beers on tap. How is that possible? The kicker, it was Jacksonville Craft Week. Maybe they didn't get the memo. I went down to World of Beer and had a Bold City Duke's Cold Nose and Cigar City Homemade Apple Pie. The bartender was a very nice guy though.

I had been to kickbacks about 4 years ago and had a great experience. Previously the beer selection was vast and my server was knowledgable and helpful.

The second time around my experience was the complete opposite. They place felt dirty. The atmosphere was not good. The beer selection was abysmal. Instead of 60 some odd beers on tap it was more like 10-15 and not even good beers. I chose a Oskar blues Christmas ale my girlfriend had a bells IPA. My Christmas ale was the very bottom of the keg. It was flat and tasteless. Both beers were poured with WAY too much head. We ordered a burger and a panini sandwich to eat. The food came in time and tasted okay but as it cooled quickly the chicken in the panini became very dry. I tried to order a barley wine in a bottle. My waiter went to look, came back to the table and told me they were out. He didn't recommend any other beers or give me an alternative. He just walked off. A few minutes later he came back and I asked if they had ANY barley wines. Once again none. I tried one more time and asked for the Weyerhaeuser fifteen. This time they had the beer BUT it had not been in the cooler. I was told the beer could be ready in 8 min. Really?? How is a beer going to go from room temp to ready to drink in 8 min?

I politely said no thank you and asked for the check.

My impression is that this place is running in the negative and the owner/manager is putting no money into inventory.

I can't imagine this place staying in business. If they do they need to change their identity away from a high end craft beer restaurant and just be the local dive they have become.
