Each day that I was in Vegas, my wife would take a nap in the afternoon and I would come here. The beer selection is very good in general. They have lots of beers not available on the east coast, and I took advantage of this opportunity. One small issue I have is that they specialize in beer, but all of the beers are served in chilled glasses.

The pours are generous and the service was very good. They made an effort to point out the specials, including the happy hour. The bartenders were very helpful and attentive to making sure you are filled.

I didn't have much to eat here, but I did enjoy the hot wings. They were very affordable during happy hour.

The pub also offers a deal: if you can drink your beer in 7 seconds, then the next one is free. You could go all night with this special. You won't enjoy the beer, but it is free. I feel like this is an insult to the brewer's effort in each beer. It fits in for Vegas, but not with me.

Recently spent some time in Vegas and this was a must-see place for my wife and I. We were extremely happy with P.U.B. We really enjoyed the up-beat atmosphere, top-notch service, great beer selection and great food. Wait staff was great and offered suggestions based on our likes, dislikes which was good. A bit pricey, but it's Vegas.

While it's a nice option if you're in the Aria/MGM area, it's outrageously expensive. Eats were OK, but also expensive. And I'm talking expensive even for Vegas.

As for the service: our bartender was nice and attentive, but the manager and other bar staff were busy doing shots at the other end of the bar.

With more and more options for beer opening on the strip, I doubt I'd ever go back.

Met a few friends at this place to pregame before our buddy's wedding. There's really no way this place couldn't look nice as it's located in what must be one of the swankiest malls in America. We were seated at a table with a serve-you-own beer tap setup in the middle which was annoying and blocked our views of each other. The menu is enormous and not too easy to navigate. I'm not sure how this place is only listed as 'a bit pricey' since the only beers on the menu under $10 were PBR and Coors Light (which were $8) and most of the pours were between 12 and 15 dollars. (Also, there is virtually no price drop on pitchers) Our server seemed to be completely overwhelmed by the beer list and more that half of the beers we requested from the menu weren't actually in stock. I ordered a bottle of Sucaba, which was only slightly outrageous at $35 a bottle, and he showed up at the table without anything to open it, which was a little dismaying. Then to cap off a pretty underwhelming experience the place tried to charge us $56 for a pitcher that was clearly labeled in the menu for $40 and then did nothing to even try to rectify the situation. That's a pretty deceptive business practice in my book and I really don't think a place that already has you completely bent over needs to ask for more. This place made me sad that it's associated with craft beer.

Reasonably broad tap and bottle list especially for the strip, but all are fairly pricey. Most drafts are $12-$13. There is a fair amount of BMC on the menu which are a bit cheaper.

There are a couple of cask offerings also at $13 a glass.

Food was quite tasty. Haven't tried anything here I didn't like.

Service tends to be a bit slow especially at tables away from the bar, and the place can be quite busy at times.

Went here on a Sunday night for dinner and drinks. Because the place was packed, we choose to sit at the bar. That was a mistake because the bartenders were inattentive at best. They did have a very good selection of beers, including 3 from Deschutes on cask, but it took forever to get served. They could probably have sold me 2 more beers had the service been more attentive. We had the lobster rolls and the fish and chips and both were excellent. If the service was better, we would have come back.

Stopped in while visiting Vegas with some friends. The atmosphere is great with some nice outdoor seating. The beer selection is pretty solid with lots on tap and some interesting bottle options. They even had a couple on cask. The prices are a bit high but if you can catch their happy hour, drafts are half price which brings them much more in line. The food is very good too with a real focus on presentation. I enjoyed the Buffalo Burger and the fries were fantastic. This is a good spot for beer and a bite to eat.

I guess being in the same mall as Prada gives you the right to jack prices, but dios mio! $14 for a snifter of firestone? $11 for a pint of Dead Guy? $44 for a pitcher of 90 minute? I was expecting a bit pricey, but this is top-of-the-line expensive. For these prices im almost expecting a popular form of vegas entertainment to come with the beer, but no.

Food was good. Had the lobster rolls, lots of lobster. Other food looked ok, but again, gastro-pub pricing. I dont mind paying for quality, but paying through the nose for average is not bueno.

Servers were friendly, attentive and knowledgable.

Atmosphere was completely forgettable. Seriously. Im currently at the bar and im drawing a blank on features to describe.

Selection? Among the best in vegas for on-tap or in bottles. Lots to choose from. But theres that price - two to three times normal pint pruces.

For the Vegas strip id go with pour 24 at NYNY, or holsteins at Cosmo, both of which offer similar beer choices at better prices. $13 for a snifter of 90 minute is just too much.

Finding craft beer on the Vegas strip was a challenge, and I was very fortunate to have this place next to my hotel, the Aria.

They had over 50 beers on tap. No hotel bar I have been to has anywhere near this many taps. And, the taps were excellent, especially for Vegas where you are lucky if you can find Boston Lager or Fat Tire. They had 4 cask beers, a good selection of West Coast craft beers, Belgian beers, New Belgium beer, DFH, as well as Bud and Miller products. They had an extensive bottle selection and had wine and mixed drinks.

Here is the deal. Their pints range from $11 to $16 or more. It is expensive; however, they have two happy hours every day: 3-6 PM and 10 to midnight where pints are half off, which makes it much more reasonable.

The staff was extremely friendly. They were generous with the samples. They gave me good pours. I could not get a sense of how knowledgeable they were of their product, but I did hear them making some recommendations to customers that were clueless about craft beer. It was nice that they were friendly about it rather than pretentious.

The atmosphere was not obnoxious, and it was not packed during happy hour. There were some TVs playing sports, but no slot machines. It felt like I had stepped away from Vegas, which for me was a good thing. They have food, which I did not try, and the pub decor wasn't over the top.

We stayed in the Aria hotel and I was shocked to find this place downstairs. Totally excited.

The vibe is pretty good. Sitting at the bar is probably the best experience I had from the 3 times I went here during my trip.

The bartender we had was super friendly and fast. The servers we had just couldn't handle a large party. The restaurant wasn't THAT busy yet they managed to screw up a few orders multiple times during one visit. I had mixed experiences but overall it was fine.

Lots of beer to choose from. Good selection. Cool to get a half yard if you're feeling wild. Prices are outrageous compared to my hometown Portland/Vancouver but it's on the strip so it's to be expected. I think I paid like $12 for a Dogfish Head 90 min and even may have paid $11 for a simple Spaten Lager...and $17-19 for a half-yard of it. That's laughable. Locally, I'd pay like $4-6. Probably wouldn't go here if I was a local, however.

The food was hit and miss for me. I enjoyed some of it and wasn't impressed with some of it. There are some nice selections like the seafood and such but some of it is a bit overdone, swabbed in butter, etc. It is what it is.

Had some good beer and overall a fun time. I think someone mentioned there are tables that have taps on them but I didn't see that. Sounds cool as hell!

Beer destination perfect situated right on the gambling capital's main street. You'll find one of the few, if not the only, locations in Las Vegas that actually serves cask ales. Straight from the firkin and hand-pumped. I was told by the waitress that Todd's pub has a rotating selection of cask beers. Unfortunately, I did not stay long enough in Vegas to test that out, so I'll have to check the menu again when I return on my next trip.

Besides the cask ales, there is a very large and fine tuned (for the food) beer menu. Perfectly laid out to appease whatever your palate is in the mood for (stouts, IPA's, Belgian, etc...)

Service was enjoyable. Our waitress was kind enough to share her experience about changing from a "Miller Lite only chick," to a well-groomed beer snob. Kudos to Todd's training staff for taking the time to educate their staff. It makes the experience all the more enjoyable.

Atmosphere is upscale pub, with nice hand-carved wood trimings and beautiful white tiled ceramic. Makes all the food stand out a lot more.

Food is quite nice. Todd's head chef put a delectable spin on the world's oldest selection of bar food. Hush puppies, fries and corned beef filled my stomach and left behind a comforting food feel. I didn't feel like a dead weight with the usual grease ball stomach ache my body gets from eating pub food.

For now, this is the "go-to" spot for anyone on "The Strip" looking for good food and good beer.

This place is adjacent to the Aria, which is where my husband and I stayed when we were in Vegas. I must admit, Vegas for me was more about liquor than beer, but I still appreciated what this place had to offer. A very decent selection of craft brews, great service and amazing food. There are not a lot of "craft beer destinations" in Vegas that I am aware of nor that I visited, so this place did stand out among the establishments we went to. It was fairly expensive (hey, it's VEGAS) so be prepared to pay $9 for a beer that you would normally pay $5 for elsewhere. Atmosphere wasn't the best...kind of obnoxious crowd, but once you're imbibing in a decent brew (or mixed drink), the crowd drowns into the background with the rest of Vegas.

Recommended if you are looking for a good craft beer experience in the otherwise liquor-oriented Las Vegas strip.
