Previous reviews are constant in describing Galaxy Hut as a "dive;" however, as one who has spent many a wonderful times in "dives," I would choose words like "homey," "comfortable," or "low key." In any case, this quaint litte spot - hey, "quaint" is another good word - is the antithesis of the usual DC area bar in that it lacks the obnoxious, self-important douchebag and the accompanying phonecow with her incessant, monosyllabic blathering. QH is a quiet place that attracts unpretentious beer lovers who seek a placw to have a pleasant chat, drink some decent beer and relaaaaxxx. Live music at night.

Yes, it is small: the size of an apartment living room with a few worn tables and a small L-shape bar that seats about 12 on bolted bar stools. (ala Brickskellar.) The pale blue walls are adorned with the work of local artists. They have about 20 taps with beer priced by the size of the glass you order: ie, pint or goblet. The server was excellent and attentive. The food is your basic pub grub and must be ordered at the bar benaeth the sign. Somewaht like a British pub. That said, they offer tater tots, a comfort food that everyone loves - much like puppies.

I agree this place is a hole in the wall, but it's definitely worth the change of pace for Arlington.

Once you walk through the door you realize this place is centered around the beer and that is it. Yes there is food and live music occasionally but the real purpose everyone is there is for a different brew off the beaten path. The crowd is a bit younger than you normally find in the area and the place does have some character. The service is fair and as long as you know what you want and it's not a weekend or peak time there isnt a problem getting served.

The taplist has a good mix of styles and always has a few unique drafts. The other nice change of pace is that the local DMV breweries are well represented.

Overall this is one of my favorite places for happy hours and enjoying a beer on a day off.
