My last stop in Charlotte on my way back home. Stopped here for dinner. This was the last "must see" on my list. This place was packed out around dinner time. I found one spot at the bar. Great service. Was acknowledged right away even though they were crazy busy. I started out with a SN Tumbler on tap. Their selection was pretty great. Many of their offerings were ones that you would see most anywhere around, they did carry some very special brews like: Avery Maharaja, DFH Bitch's Brew and Saison Du Buff. The prices on those were high for sure, but it was cool that they had them. They had Founders Nemesis in bottle form as well as about 50 other bottled beers. I ordered a smoked salmon sandwich on rye. Very good, but the fries that came with it were pretty average. Finished off the night with a DFH Bitch's Brew. Very good. The atmosphere was pretty cool in there. There was a sort of back room with some billiard tables and such. Cool place. This was second only to Mac's - Steele Creek. I'd love to come back sometime.

The food is really good, the service is good (I don't go there during crowded hours), and the beer selection is kind of a joke. about 100 taps and maybe 5 I'd like to order. You can tell they just buy a high quantity of less than par craft beer as most of their customers are new to the craft scene so they get away with it.
