A friend who is local to this establishment introduced me to this place for lunch one day.
In a very nice, renovated neighborhood. Sits on the corner. Very pub like and new. They usually have some of the better belgian offerings on. Regulars like: Chimay Red, White & Blue, Ommegang Hennepin, Three Philosophers, Bells Two Hearted, and Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale. They do have the usual imports on tap: Smithwicks, Guinness and others. They rotate their taps pretty often so there's always something interesting on. I've had a few of the lunch items from the menu and they have all been ample and good. Nice decor and juke box. Nice place to hang out for lunch or a happy hour. It can get crowded at nights during the weekend.
This is a nice stop if you're in the area and looking for something different.

This place is pretty much exactly what I look for in a bar. Classy, clean, well lit, and not cluttered with TV screens everywhere. The food menu is limited, but what they have is delicious, if a bit pricey. Their Mac and cheese combinations are genius, and the fish and chips was well above average for bar food.

The drink menu impressed me as well, as a beer drinker. Beers were arranged by style, Instead of the typical 'import' or ' domestic' distinctions most establishments have. I ordered the local Kentucky Bourbon Barrel ale. We had great friendly service, and just a great overall visit. There is another keystone near the house I am about to buy, and I hope I can expect the same from that establishment during my future visits.

I was pleased to be able to stop here for a late dinner on my roadtrip to Dayton. It was Mac and Cheese Mondays so I had a half price jalepeno mac and cheese with an Eliot Ness amber. Bright, cheerful vibe but not much going on for a lame Monday night.

Service was fast and attentive. Selection had an eclectic mix of American craft standards and a few decent imports. Only about seven taps but two cases of bottles as well. I had Bells Two Hearted on tap for the first time in a while.

Overall, a decent little joint just over the river from the ballpark. I would recommend this place.

USo I stopped in here tonight exploring. I have found lots if great bottles!

The atmosphere is a little rowdy but pretty subdued for the surrounding area. Reds fans strolling in after a win is a great atmosphere for me personally. For me I feel very comfortable. Mixture of upper to lower class people mingling. I like it.

Quality is good. Nice bar area. Great beer great food. Quality is a God for a corner bar.

Service is awesome. Female bartender is a good source of knowledge and is into ipas. Soon as I sat down I was asked for my order and moments later my drink order. Semi knowledgeable and super nice.

Selection is about average on the tap side. Locals, bell's, founders red poppy. But the real selection is in the bottles. Haf a double trouble for AB appetizer, then
a pere Jacques for dinner and going with old Rasputin fir dessert.

Food was excellent. Had the Philly cheesesteak. Pretty awesome. Bun was great and they actually use real flat iron steak for there steak.

Value is good. Now I don't have to drive to the nati area for good craft brew
