A great example of what a gastropub should be.

It was crowded, as would be expected for a Saturday night. I was able to find a bar table close to the door with no wait. Gastropub meets sport bar feel: dark with lots of wood, big rectangular bar, and lots of TVs. Service was very good. The server knew the products, both food and beer, and didn't mind sharing his opinion. OK number of taps (6 to 8) with a decent enough selection (I had a Hop God and Cerise). Better bottle selection, though (50 - 75, maybe). Food selection was excellent (quality and choice), particularly if you're not in the mood for a full entree and can suffice on appetizers and salads. Worth a return trip.

Located in the Westport neighborhood a few miles from downtown.

Stopped in for a snack on a rainy afternoon last week.

Seemed mellow and & casual, the staff & customers skewed hipster

Beer was good, small sample size

Service was friendly/helpful

Selection 20-ish taps, nothing mind blowing to be sure, no crap either. Bottle selection was okay

Food was great, deviled eggs were nice

Expected way more from this place. but worth a visit none the less

Stopped by on a lark while in Kansas City, mostly due to seeing a beer cheese soup made with Boulevard Tank 7 on the online menu.

This is a trendy, pricey gastropub. There's about a half-dozen taps, which all seemed to be higher-end beers (my girlfriend and I had a Prairie Bomb! and a Jolly Pumpkin Fuego del Otono), and a more extensive bottle list that is kept updated on a chalkboard across one of the walls. The crowd and vibe is rather skinny jeans and flannel with knit hats, so not my usual sort of place. The food is quite tasty and unlike many gastropub establishments, actually comes in decently large portion sizes.

A meal for two people with a single beer apiece came up to over $60, so be prepared for the prices. We also hit during an odd time between lunch and dinner, so we got a table right away, but there was a line out the door by the time we finished and left. The service seemed rather dismissive, and the wait staff at the tables aren't all that familiar with the beer offerings.

I might or might not stop back in if ever back in town.

As in other comments about this place it is super pricey. Tons of different bottles to choose from so there is something for everyone. Nice stuff on tap as well. Service was dissapointing and we felt very out of place. Have kind of a redneck family and this place was more of a hipster crowd. Price on Abraxas was $37 and printemps was $29 so bring money if you want to drink the fancier stuff. Overall a must visit if passing by though

Possibly the best beer selection of any restaurant in KC. Some fantastic bottles that are hard to find at local stores- Abraxas, Parabola, Loons, etc. But expect your wallet to take a hit. They are proud of their selection and aren't afraid to rape you on the price. Abraxas is $17 if you can find it around town, but $41 here.

Nice chilled atmosphere. Good beer drinking can take place without the TVs or music being overbearing. Service is solid. Some of the staff seem to know their craft beer, others do not.

Burgers are fantastic. Simply some of the best in town. Fries...oh yeah. You will pay $15 for a burger and fries, but you will walk away quite satisfied with the quality.
