Excellent beer, service and food. Nobody does calamari like 23rd Street.
The staff is friendly and informative about their brews. Awesome place to go for this out-of-towner. They have many TV's for your sports entertainment. Their 666 Belgian Strong Golden Ale rivals Delirium Tremens. Our college girl is graduating next month and I'll miss going to Lawrence and getting to 23rd Street.

OK, I hate to be flat out negative about a brew pub, but this place really stank. I had two beers (Old School Porter and their Brown Ale) and both tasted like they were made by a first time home brewer...and a poor first time brewer as well.
Add to the bad beer really terrible food. My son, wife and I each had something different (burger, french roast sandwich, and a reuben), and we all thought they were the worst version of said sandwich we'd ever had. The 1/2 pound hamburger was clearly a 1/3 pound burger as well as dry, on a crumbling bun and with the smallest amount of cheese that I've ever seen put on a burger. The reuben came on burned bread, the corned beef was as dry as chipped beef, and the sour kraut and thousand island dressing would of taken a microscope to locate. And the fries...lovely seasoned fries in which in the seasoning appeared to be nothing but tons of salt.
Luckily, the prices are really high for Lawrence, too. We went for sandwiches because there is no way meatloaf is worth $14 in Lawrence, KS. It's a freakin' college town and prices are very reasonable for food here, but NOT at the 23rd Street Brewery.
Being a regular of Free State, I'd hoped that there would be a second brewery in Lawrence I'd be able to visit, but I'll never go here again. Having lived about 5 blocks from 23rd Street's former associated brewery in Kansas City, the 75th Street Brewery, I'm happy the two are no longer owned/operated by the same people. 75th Street is good....both for food and beer, and this place made me wish I'd ordered a Miller Lite...'nuff said!

This place is located in a strip mall area. It is a large open area with a sports bar feel. However, I must laugh at the small TV's placed EVERYWHERE!
They seem to hire attractive young ladies, which could be a plus unless you want to know about the beer.
So you're thinking...This is a Hooter's/Applebee's!
You would be right, except the beer is actually pretty good. They have a nice selection and good quality on all the beers I had.
If you are in town, like sports, and good beer don't be afraid of hitting this place!
