Trekked over here from the suburbs during a recent stop in the city.

Atmosphere is good. It's got a very nice neighborhood feel to it. I felt as though half the people in the bar were regulars and the servers did their best to make you feel that way too. A long bar greets you upon entering on the left with a good deal of tables on the right. A large doorway on the right opens up into even more seating. The beer list is written on a chalkboard at the far end of the bar and a TV sits directly in the middle.

Quality is good. All glassware is appropriate and I especially appreciated their stubby glasses for half-pours. The temperature and head levels are also nice.

Service is also good. They seemed a bit understaffed while I was there and I had to wait longer than I'm used to a few times to put in my next order. That said, when the server was able to make it around she was very friendly.

Selection is very good. Around 15 taps with two beer engines. While I was there a good deal of locals were represented along with some of CA's finest.

Food was underwhelming. The burger I ordered was OK but with the recent burger revolution I was a bit disappointed. The fries were solid and the rest of their menu did look interesting.

Value is good. The half-pours are a good deal and even if you get a full pint it won't hit your wallet very hard.

Overall this place is a bit off the beaten path but that's what makes it more of a neighborhood bar. A nice selection with friendly service makes this place worth a stop if you're near the area.
