My first visit to Mikro and it seemed pretty true to the previous reviews. Overall a good experience. First note, parking on a Friday afternoon/evening is a bit of a bitch. It's a small shopping plaza with a very few spaces for a number of small businesses. We found our way around the back of the building. Then, arriving at 5:20 PM, we still had to put our name on the waiting list for one of the dozen or so small tables in this one-room tiny establishment. It does make for a "happening" sort of crowd-feel but obviously it can be a detraction. There was a little room at the bar and service was friendly and prompt for such a busy place. We were seated about as promised and the menu is limited but decent with fish n' chips, a venison sausage dish, some sort of vegetable pot pie, and a few other interesting choices as well as a featured special of a rib eye steak. The venison I had was very good, I'd have it again and I recommend a little mustard on the side. The fish n' chips got a very good review and the steak was less exciting with perhaps a bit too much extra flavoring pumped into it. But all was good and portions weren't ridiculously small, just not large. Enough I'd say. We had the special Beer-amisu desert which was good but not "beery" in any way. Our server was a young lady who claimed to know all the beers on the extensive tap list and she convinced me that was no lie. She was helpful and knowledgeable. Very impressive, and friendly too. All the beers I had seemed plenty fresh and tasty. They were out of a couple from the beer board but nothing unusual. I enjoyed a Great Divide Titan, a Southern Tier 2XIPA, a Clipper City Black IPA and an Ommegang Witte. No complaints. The atmosphere is obviously close quarters which with less of a crowd should be fine, but at crunch time is a little bit of a put off. They handled things pretty well though. They do have a 2-hour policy on the tables which ultimately is probably a good policy but it can also be a little awkward as they roust you from your seats at the appointed time to make room, even if nobody else is necessarily waiting for your table. We got up and stood at the bar "rail" for another beer while we watched our table sit empty for at least 5+ minutes, though another group eventually came along. Decor is simple, clean cut, a combo of rough cut wood and new age moderne with simple beer items on the walls (framed advertisements and banners, etc.). As a beer geek, I liked it fine but I probably would avoid another weekend dinner engagement there. Prices weren't horrible, just differentiating themselves from your corner bar. Good to see it thriving.

While searching for some dinner a friend and I stumbled onto this gem! We were in Connecticut for work and found this place to be super packed and brimming with customers. Happens they were having an Allagash tap take-over with nearly 15 taps of Allagash and a few more with variuos others from the area. People were very friendly and bartenders and staff knew their beers. Most of the time they have a local Berkshire Brewing Co. Coffee House Porter on nitro tap but aparantly they had just run out so had an Old Rasputin nitro. Very nice establishment and hope to return to the area for work to re-visit this place . Great Time.

Read about this place on Beer Advocate and had to try it. Nice looking joint that oozes fresh beer. Walked in, not crowded and found a seat at the bar. They were running a special event, the 8 beers of Hanaukah. I'm not Jewish, but, when in Tel aviv...selected the very non-kosher Bahn Mi sandwich. Delicious. Asked the bar keep for a recommend draft and he suggested the He'brew Hop Manna. Perfect foil to the Bahn Mi. Would have loved to have sampled more but had to have a clear head. Wish that I had a bar like this near where I live. I would be there all the time. Great little spot in need of multiple revisits. Try it, you'll like it.

always packed and for good reason. food is fantastic.
its a treat for us to go here. we go a few times a year. coast 100 bucks every time we go. which is why its a nice treat.
my only negative is community seating. its your option to or not to. but as a service industry worker myself i feel that it greatly takes away from the romanticism of going out. but again if they did not offer it packed would be an understatement. Don't get me wrong, if you have never been you need to go! in fact you need to go a lot till you try every last bit of food on the menu!
