The only thing holding this place back is the unremarkable food (but typical for a pub) and the average service. Otherwise, at least last night, the beer selection was very impressive. Parabola was served as part of their 3rd anniversary celebration, but as if that wasn't enough, Victory at Sea was on tap along with a nitro bourbon barrel aged sweet stout from a local, Lakewood Brewing. Several other offerings I've had before on tap, but most of them bigger beers at 8% and up. Service was ok, but the bartenders were not terribly chatty and were slow at times to notice my empty glass. A little on the hipster side too. Still, a solid option and perhaps the best one yet that I've experienced in my many visits to Dallas.

I live around the corner from common table and have been going here for years. After my last few trips, ive decided it needs an honest evaluation.

Vibe- for dallas its pretty chill, not great, but its good especially for uptown where most places are just crammed with Frat bros

Service- I honestly often have great servers, but the bartenders can range from amazing to down right awful. Last night the lady serving was basically grunting at me instead of using words

Selection- So on any given night the beer selection is mediocre to decent. For special events it can be amazing. I really like that they have 10 and 20 ounce pours, and the prices are decent. They have a special bottle list, but they dont actually have most of those bottles on a given night.... so yeah

Food- Ive had some great food hear (P.I.G) to some of the worst (they literally served us rotten mussels). So im not giving them a great score here


Overall- I go here alot. Its got a decent patio, craft beer, and its close to my house. For Dallas its pretty decent, but i feel compared to beer bars in most other cities, it kind of sucks
