Very chill spot with great food and good beer. The 6 beers in their regular lineup didn't "wow" me, nor did their Irish Stout seasonal, but the Brewer's Specials the night I went (Barton Kriek and Barrel-Aged King Kona Stout) were both top-notch. The Kriek, especially.
Server was very knowledgeable about the beer he was serving, was prompt and attentave, and recommended some great entrees. Only service complaint was the wait, but even that was fairly short given it was a Saturday night.
My beef tenderloin was absolutely perfect (served on chipotle potatoes, covered with fried onions and asparagus, and with jumbo shrimp on the sited). Well-cooked, flavorful, filling, all you could ask for in a meal. Everyone else at my table was pleased with their food as well.
Great restaurant, solid brewery, a bit pricey, but a highly recommended treat if you're ever in Austin.
