Stopped here after the Lost Abbey 2nd Anniversary Party for abut forty-five minutes before I had to get back home, atmosphere was cool with a nice old pub feel, pool table, TVs with sports on, some tables for dining, and a large bar area, pretty cool people in here too, even though the place looked old it was really clean and everything seemed sanitary, service was decent although I think they had a new bartender in training because he was a little slow and seemed a little lost, another guy was there though that was cool and helped me also, they had a nice rotating tap for today with three New Belgium beers including La Folie, Eric's Sour Ale, and Le Fleur Misseur, also Cantillon Cuvee des Champions, Fuller's London Pride, Deschutes Abyss, Ballast Point Sextant Oatmeal Stout, and a few more I cannot remember, they have a big bottle list with things from Belgium including Drie Fontenien Oude Gueuze, all the way to brandy barrel Angel's Share from Lost Abbey for $30, bottle prices were more than fair and the going rate for any bars down in this area, food looked good but I was too full from all the tacos to try any, prices were very reasonable, one of the cheapest prices I have seen the Abyss, I would definitely go back to this place and recommend it to anybody in the area, fun experience

Went recently following the Stone Sour Fest. Parking lot full, so just drive down the side street and wait for a spot to open up. FIFA World Cup on the big screen created a packed and festive party-like vibe. Usually not so crowed or noisey. Open, pub-like feel. Large and small tables, long bar, patio, TVs. Servers were swamped, but did a very good job - congrats. Wonderful variety of beers on tap form local to regional to international. Something for everyone. Food is mostly stellar, and I'm still yearning for that Maryland burger. Reasonable prices. Always stop by this place.

Recently visited on a CA trip from AZ. Had really high expectations but wasn't blown away with the inside vibe or the service. Luckily the tap list makes up for a good portion of that but still sucks that there isn't much else going on. Would certainly be a good place to spend most of your night if you had to pick one place in the area.

Decided to stop in after Lost Abbey since it was pretty close by, have always heard great things about this place so I was pretty psyched to check it out. It definitely has the english pub feel but with a more modern take. Atmosphere was solid. Lots of people all over the place enjoying themselves. Guys beside us were enjoying the USA hockey game from two days before, apparently oblivious to that fact. Quality was great. Food and beer were top notch and the furnishings were more than adequate, loved the dedicated darts area as most places don't leave you enough room. Service was fine. I didn't have to wait for a beer and our food came out quickly. Selection was awesome. Only a handful of the 50 or so taps were kicked and they had plenty of local offerings which is always nice to see. I totally forgot to look at the bottle list, wish I could go back and check it out. As far as food goes, we weren't super hungry so we just got an order of their loaded fries which were quite good. Prices were a bit high on certain items but nothing over the top. Overall an awesome pub, I would definitely be a regular here if I lived in the area.
