Another new bar/resturant hits the Boca Raton, FL area. This place is near the swank trendy mizner area in Boca. Although this place is in that area it has a northern blue collar feel to it. The atmosphere is pretty nice as soon as you walk in you are greeted by a bar with about 35 taps, which all are pretty decent stuff. The look of this place looks like my uncle's hunting basement. The ceiling is litterly very low which gives it a basement feel. There is another room attached that is more of the eating area. The service is pretty decent everyone seemed to be served quickly. The selection of beer was pretty good, they had some special taps there Maharaja and a Yuengling bock beer I have never seen before. The food was decent. Overall this place is only missing a few good beers preferbly some Stone or Dogfish on tap, also a few animals on the wall would really spice this place up.

The lodge is a good beer bar. The food is decent; like a good burger you make at home on the grill. The fries however are pretty damn good. The atmosphere is better for grabbing a few beers with your buddies. Beer and wine only, no liquor.

Beer selection is good and changes frequently. they do tap out pretty quickly so popular/rare beer's run out quick. They do a lot of happy hour and all you can drink promotions. They also do a good job of updating the tap list and promotions on facebook so I suggest you follow them.

Atmosphere: I walked into the Lodge and saw a beer pong tournament going on, a great selection of craft brews, a very large plate of nacho concoction, and a snowboard turned chug w/ a buddy plank (2 pint glasses attatched to a snowboard where the bindings would be, fill with beer, get a friend and grab a rail, hope that your buddy can chug at the same rate you do...you get the idea). This is an awesome place!!

Quality: Theres great beer, great food, great music, and even though the area is a bit uppity, the people in here are down to earth.

Service: The staff here are great. They do a great job of keeping everyone happy, walking amongst the crowd and getting everyone what they need.

Selection: There's a full bar and craft beer selection with I think 6/8 taps (Can't remember). There's also a small bottle selection.

Food: I didn't order any food, but eventually will. The biggest plate of nachos that I've seen in my life, loaded with toppings, and they have sliders that looked tasty too.

Value: I kind of cheated. I met one of the bartenders and had a half off pint coupon, but even at full price, it's reasonable for the area of town.

Overall: Definitely a cool spot to check out and one of the better craft beer spots I've seen in South Florida.

The Lodge is the beer connoisseurs best bet in Boca. Every time I am in there they have something new for me to try out (and it is usually awesome). Their food might not be the best that I have ever had but it is good. Either way it isn't really a huge deal to me, because I usually just go there for the beer. Service has always been very good. The staff is well educated too so if you ever have any questions about a certain brew they can most likely help you out.
Overall an awesome beer bar that is definitely worth a visit if you haven't tried it out already.

Utilized Beer Fly to find this place while working in Boca Raton. Went two nights in a row. Have to say the 2nd night was MUCH more fun. There is a hooka bar in back of this bar and they share a courtyard. You can grab a beer from The Lodge and then a hooka from the Sisha Bar. Was really fun. Have never done that before.

Tap list is pretty basic for a craft beer bar, but some nice gems on the list. (St. Bernardus Tripel, Stoudts DPA and an offering from Cigar City. Food was pretty good, but not really up to top notch Craft Beer Bar standards. We ordered a cheese plate and I was completely embarrassed for them based on what they brought out. About 9 squares of the most basic cheddar & gouda cheese with a little honey drizzled over it. Not really what was expected. Wings were fine and a grilled chicken sandwich was passable. Said it was served in Texas Toast. This was no Texas Toast. More like white bread.

Staff was very nice and helpful, atmosphere was indeed, Lodge like. Light wood covers all of the walls and doors. Does not seem like you are in Florida. If you are in the area, it appears to be the best option. I would travel farther to enjoy the hooka bar before traveling just for The Lodge. But if your in the area, I think you'll enjoy it.

I am sure you younger guys know a lot more about beer than I do, but I enjoy a nice American craft or Belgian beer as much as anyone. I could not believe the selection at the lodge. I come back into town every Sept. 1st and this was the first time I have seen this place. I didn't know anything about it besides the fact that the sign says beer and grill instead of bar and grill. I had my wife drop me off while she went shopping and was hoping to enjoy a pint or two before she picked me up. What a surprise. I was expecting the usual low quality beer that you would find in the bars in the area. The girls behind the bar were very nice and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Nobody was trying to show off their beer knowledge and make you feel like an idiot like they do at so many specialty beer bars. I just want to sit back and enjoy a high quality beer without having my ear chewed off by a bartender who thinks they wrote the beer bible. I had a Scaldis and a Pranqster which I think is American. Both were very good. I dont know what more you can ask for as far as beer and nice people. I couldnt find anything to complain about and will try a burger with my pint next time. If you cant find a few nice people or beer you like here, I guess you will not be happy anywhere. Have a nice day my fellow beer buddies.

Real nice spot for a beer bar in Boca Raton, located pretty much in Mizner. The bar itself has a very unique vibe to it, hunting/skiing/outdoors styling to everything in the place. The bartenders were pretty friendly, and pretty knowledgeable about their selection, which is 25-30 taps deep, some of which were not ready to pour.

Didn't have any food, but it did look appetizing and the prices were definitely fair/average. Worth checking out.

The selection includes some Bell's, Stone, DFH, and a few other very common and widely distributed brews.

The Lodge is a small bar which recently opened in Boca, and is pretty much the only one of its kind down here (most other places in the area are swanky, etc).

The bar is set up to be exactly what the name suggests--a ski/snowboard type lodge with all wood paneling, etc. The atmosphere is casual, and the bartenders are very friendly and quite knowledgeable about the beers on hand.

There are 24 taps and at least 18 of them are open at any one time. They are constantly getting new beers and rotating their selection.

I personally think the food is amazing--very reasonable prices (particularly for lunch) with very large portion sizes.
