This place is located on a little waterfront dealie downtown, right next to the arch. The area is touristy, but also filled with loud music attractive, drunken young people, so I assume there's a decent amount of townies there, too. Anyhow, I went late, so I can't judge the food or dining atmosphere. As a bar, however, it was pretty pleasant in spite of being loud and packed. The crowd seemed pretty okay, the bartenders were friendly, and nothing at all was in any way offputting...
...Except the beer, which sucked. They had a gigantic selection and all the pints were very reasonably priced, but of the four beers that I sampled, the best was just a notch above tolerable.
Don't get me wrong: this wasn't the Waterloo, Iowa Beck's Bar and Grill, where the beer actually tastes worse than the stuff that gets pumped out of a Mr. Beer kit. But everything *did* taste quite homebrewy, and not in a good way. In the vienna, for example, the hop profile was non-existent and the carbonation was so intense that I thought it was tearing the enamel off my teeth. The stout had a decent aroma and okay hop profile, but there was a strong aftertaste of dish rag.
Still, I got no beef with the place as a place. Some friends of mine went earlier in the day and the said the food was good, so maybe it's a fine place to visit. Just, don't get the beer.

In the Landing area downtown on the river. Very cool place. A lot bigger place, space wise, than I was expecting. We ran in before meeting up with some friends to just have a quick beer but wish we would have had a chance to stay longer and try more beers. The one beer I had was there Honey Wheat. It was good. I hope to be able to go back at some point.
