I had a chance to check this place out with a couple buddies, and I must say I was very pleased.
The location is good - it is easy to find on Pike. The large painted Elysian Brewing Company on the building means it is hard to miss. The first impression was good an nice spacious bar area with tables surrounding it as the centerpiece on all sides. There are flags celebrating some well known Belgian breweries hanging from the ceiling along with chandeliers and small candles on the tables and rugs below. I found the music choices to be adventurous and upbeat. I enjoyed hearing some Mr. Bungle as I sipped the Perseus porter.
The quality is top notch- food and beer alike. Fresh food with lots of color and no complaints in the ale dept. either.
The service was prompt and friendly, checking up on our small table frequently. Even after the shift changed we were not forgotten. We were able to split up the check three ways without much difficulty at all.
The selection is great: everything from Pilsner to Imperial stout was on tap with Hefeweizen, Pale ale, ESB and Porter in between. They have most of their beer available for take out in bombers or six packs. There are guest taps and bottles from Belgium that are not that ordinary. Lambics are available as well as sour ale.
The food was brought to us quickly and was presented very nicely compared to most pub food. I chose Mahi Mahi tacos and frites. The curried snapper and cheesteak both looked appealing. I ate some pico de gaillo and mole sauce with corn chips from my friend's plate. The menu was not huge, but there was enough variety to satisfy the majority.
I was able to walk away spending under $50 and I had 3 drafts w/ dinner and got a sixpack to go. I was happy with the experience and would recommend Elysian.
