My first visit to the Great Dane was Friday before the Great Taste. We started off in the dining area for a little snack and a pint. It was a comfortable, casual place for a meal.

After our first round and a bite, we moved to the pool hall section. I really liked the vibe. It's the type of place you can gather with friends, play pool or shuffle board, converse and drink a few good beers.

There also is a downstairs bar and patio out back which I didn't really explore.

I was really impressed with the service in the pool hall. There were two servers working the room and both were attentive and friendly.

The beer list went about 12 deep. I started with the scotch ale. It had a nice peat-smoked flavor that really gave it some depth. The hefe was a solid bavarian style wheat as well. There were selections availble from across the beer spectrum.

I liked it. It would be a good choice for a meal or hanging out.
