Went for an app and a few beers late Saturday afternoon; so not very busy. Attractive pub with a bar down the left, with perhaps 15 seats, tables in the remainder of the large room, with another room way down back where bands perform, which indeed has it's own bar; not in use during my visit.
Bartender was very nice, and very attentive. He had decent to good beer knowlegge, learned on the job, but was spot on when I asked about the hop level in various IPA's.
They had 30 drafts and many more bottles. Most beers were local, and were priced $6 to $7 per pint, a little pricey, but not horrible. The selection of Mass. brewers was good, but as a result, not the greatest IPA selection in my book, unless you go to bottles. I had a draft Great Divide Oak Aged IPA that was pretty good, then a local IPA by Opa-Opa, then a bottle of Green Flash West Coast.
No saisons on draft, to pick a complaint, and no killer IPA's, but all in all, I liked the place and will go back. They claim to rotate drafts often, and I have no reason to doubt them. It's great to have another craft beer spot south of Boston; as you know there aren't many.

Very Laid back environment with a huge selection of beer. Over 100 in bottles and about 40 Taps. New beers are rotated in each month. They have an outstanding menu that pairs great with beers. Also they have a "Challenge" where once youve drank 150 unique beers you get your name on a plaque and put on the wall!

Went here on a weekend with Live music. Specifically called and asked if they had a high chair for our little one. When we arrived (Bobby) the bouncer looked at us with two kids and said "It's going to be a while" Now I don't usually look much into this, but I could tell that this guy wanted nothing to do with kids. Long story short, this is definitely not a kid friendly place.
We did put our name in and grabbed drinks from the bar. We only had one couple in front of us so it wasn't a big deal. Actually it was. If you go here on the weekend and the place is full, don't bother waiting for a table. Tons of people plop themselves at a table and just order drinks to listen to the music. Which I get, I've been there. But you have an entire back room dedicated for music, why not put the band and the people back there so people can get tables and order food?
So after 30 minutes, I strolled around to the back area and noticed a table that was open. I went back to Bobby, he said it was "reserved". Now when I had called earlier, they don't take call ahead or reservations. I shrugged and we continued to wait. I then had to use the facilities and noticed that people were now sitting at the table. Considering we were next, I decided to ask him what happened. He stated some people just grabbed drinks and decided to sit down but agreed to leave in a hour when the party showed up. Really? So lesson learned (not that I will be back) its a free for all with the tables don't bother putting your name in.
Constructively, the do have an extensive draft list. The sad part it isn't that good. More crap on tap, than good beer. I was hard pressed to find a decent IPA at the place. Their taplister was out of date as well. I don't expect it to be perfect but when there are 5 beers on there that according to the bartender have been kicked "days ago" you are wasting my time.
Long story short, there are better options out there. Especially in Plymouth.
