This is a place I've driven by on several business trips and never stopped so this week decided to break the cycle.

This is a pretty large place with two bar areas (front and back) that comes across as being a little bit mega-macro bar/sterile (for lack of a better term), but on the contrary, the beer list is quite solid. The bar is surrounded with ALOT of flat screen TV's with sports piped in, pool tables, trivia going on, and lots of space.

The draft list is predominantly craft with (36) taps and what appears to be (18) craft bottles on the list. For what it's worth, as of today, I've ticked 1,681 beers (which is skimpy compared to the heavy hitters here on BA), but the point being, I had three beers on the menu I've never tried before so I was stoked.

For food, went with the bartender's recommendation which was the Buffalo Chicken Cheese Steak and wasn't disappointed at all, in fact, ranks up there as one of the better ones I've had. It was pub fare, nothing fancy at all, but really enjoyed the meal.

Service? The bartender, Nickie, was right on top of things and she was awesome.

Overall, I'd definitely stop here again next time I'm in town, not for the atmosphere, but for the great service, solid craft menu, good food, and overall was very reasonable in price which is always a good thing.

I stopped in for dinner one night while in the area on business. They have two bars and dining areas. First off, the beer menu was very good, both taps (about 20) and bottle selection. I ordered a Victory Hop Ranch while I looked at the dinner menu which was also very good. The bartender informed me that it was a 10 ounce pour and asked if that was okay with me. I figured that it would arrive in a tulip glass or a snifter. It arrived in a 10 oz. pilsner glass that reminded me of the type of glass that my dad drank his Reingold out of back in the 60's. No big deal, at least the glass wasn't frozen... I ordered the tuna steaks but when they arrived, they looked a lot like salmon steaks. When I pointed this out to the bartender, she was very apologetic and promised to fix it immediately. Well, I got my tuna which looked okay, but was very much over cooked. I never said anything about the over cooked tuna as I really wanted to eat right away. I then ordered a Heavy Seas pilsner which was served in a frozen pint glass. They also didn't charge me for the pilsner because of the great tuna debacle.

Go for the beer and service not the food...
