Food is typical pub food but the beer selection is stellar. There was a good sampling of local beers as well. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately they no longer serve flights so its a little harder to really take advantage of the wide selection. I liked the atmosphere as well. I will definitely visit again.

Staff is great and knowledgeable about beers. Very good selection of beers and the prices are very reasonable for what you get. Food quality is way above average for typical pub food, in fact it rivals many chain restaraunts. I recommend the cheese fries with Gruyère cheese and gravy. If your in the area and are into beer and/or food I recommend you check the place out. I seldom take time to write reviews - but you wont regret spending your $ there....and your business will help vote with your dollars to ensure they will still be there next time I can make it by!

Amazing food; great beer selection; always awesome service.
The only downer is the noise -- they have worked to reduce yet it is one of the loudest pubs I've visited. Too many hard surfaces, concrete floors, tall ceiling, etc. I would visit more frequently if it was not so loud.
Probably the best pub food I've ever enjoyed.
This pub typically wins people's choice award for best Dallas (or at least North Dallas) Pub.
Patio is reasonable but often full of smokers; sadly loud outside with road noise.
As others have noted, this is in a nondescript strip mall broadly on the Southeast corner of Preston and 121. There is TONS of parking in the back; drive through the porte-cochère to access.

In a strip mall along Preston, just south of 121, this place is easy to miss. Don't. It is well worth the stop, especially if you like beer. It is not a full bar. Beer and wine only. No fru fru umbrella drinks. There are a couple of TVs but this is not a sports bar. It is a great place to talk, enjoy a few beers and good food.
The beer menu is two pages of small font, with an additional seasonal list. Imports, microbrews and the mundane. But seriously, if you like American mass produced swill, you'll be overwhelmed! The servers know their stuff. If a particular seasonal is out, they'll come up with alternatives and have never steered me wrong. If you aren't sure, they do give sample tastes.
The food is a step above bar food. I've never been disappointed.

I was quite happy that I found this pub and that it happened to be located close to where I had to be in the DFW area.
The beer selection was quite good, a large variety of styles available both on top and in bottles as well as a good selection of local (Texas) beers.
The service was good but not great - fairly knowledgeable but not overly attentive. Helpful with recommendations on local beers but i waited for a while between orders.
The food was excellent - I had a great pork belly slider appetizer that has a nice amount of spice and was well prepared. I would consider ordering it again (but might get distracted by a number of other good looking dishes on the menu).
The crowd was nice and diverse, people in business attire to casual and hipster - so a little bit for everyone - and a good gender mix as well.
Beers were well poured and fresh with appropriate glassware.
Only downside to the place is that it is a little small, so when it is too cold for the outside seating area it is cramped.
