Taking the place of the former Sherlock's that has been in this spot for years. I later found out that the same franchise (Sherlock's, Baker Street, Watson's) opened this new gastropub. It certainly takes its inspiration from other well known places (BRC, Hay Merchant, Anvil, Downhouse). So off the bat I am a bit curious...

Anyway, on to the important stuff. This place has been completely gutted and re done from what Sherlock's use to be. A wide open seating and dinning area, with a nice patio outside. A long wood bar with plenty of seats. At the end of the bar is the open kitchen. Really a nice layout.

The service is great. Several bartenders that are very enthusiastic. Some, not all, are knowledgeable about the beer menu. All are eager to help. They have about 50 beer taps, plenty of wine, and a handful of craft cocktails. As mentioned above, this is nothing new with all the beer bars and cocktail places opening up (and have been open for a while). What ever, they have close to 30 Texas micros on tap alone. Anything from Saint Arnold and Karback to Deep Ellum, 512, and Live Oak. With a few other good national micros thrown in, one of the most extensive Texas beer selections in town. I love it.

For food, I had the Scotch eggs. There was an honest mistake and problem when I first received my dish. I don't need to go into details, but they quickly corrected the problem and I had a new plate in font of me in no time. Anyway, quail eggs wrapped in Italian sausage over mashed potatoes. Very good, though not great.

Good service, a great rotating Texas beer selection, and good food. I need to try more from the menu, which will be a pleasure. IMO, very similar to the Refinery. Even though I am not a fan of the Sherlock and Baker Street bars, this is very well done.
