The address given is a bit deceptive as you actually have to transit a little east to get to a long hallway that opens onto a double-doorway with the M.D.S. to the immediate right. The immenseness of the place was striking, especially given the slightly raised center area with high-backed, pew-like seating bisecting the initial entry to the place. Pool tables ran down the left wall and Jeanette “The Black Widow” Lee was due for a visit and demonstration. A racetrack-like, oval-shaped bar ran most of the second half of the first floor and I sat (with Uncle Steve) just inside of the second turn. An admixture of booths and standard table seating with chairs ran down the left wall, culminating in both the servers’ area and the lavatories, slightly to the left. Upstairs, accessible via twin staircases in the centerline, was table and chair seating with TV monitors at each station.
Ambiance: Lighting was low-key, befitting a pool hall, with satellite jukeboxes, numerous electronic games PLUS they have both Countdown Satellite Trivia and Trivia-Aoke on Thursday nights with trivia from 2000 to 2200 and karaoke from 2200 to close. I am not a karaoke buff, but I loves me some trivia!
Beer: 67 taps, 3 N2/slow pour, 1 cask. I was VERY impressed, not only by their draft selection, but by the fact that they offered six-ounce mini-drafts (schooners/micro-pours) of anything and everything.

I've visited here a number of times over the last few years as it is about 30 minutes from my home. They often have beers that I'm interested in, including some hard to find ones. For example, they had Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp #29 (Ghidorah) on-tap, which is the only place I've ever seen it.

Just this past week I was able to get growlers of Jolly Pumpkin Bam and Troegs Perpetual IPA.

They have about ~60 taps. Service has been friendly and if you get a chance to meet and talk to Dan, do so as you'll be chatting with a fellow that can brew himself and talks knowledgeably about craft beers. In fact, Cobblestones is trying to get a license from the city of York to do on-premise brewing, which Dan would lead.

This isn't your typical city bar. The room is cavernous, dimly lit with big screen TVs (with no volume - thankfully) and good rock music playing over the speakers. There's a balcony level too. They have happy hours and weekend specials.

They do a good job of keeping the on-tap beers updated on their website although their web master could get-busy and format it differently so it is easier to read.

Check it out if you get a chance. I think you'll enjoy it.

Cobblestones seems to be some sort of old ballroom or something, really big and lots of booth seating and a huge bar. I prefer a dive bar atmosphere so this isn't so comfortable to me, this seems more of a place to get a mediocre meal and drink pitchers of bud light, but they do have a pretty great micro selection.

This place seems to have the best overall selection in York, which I guess really isn't saying much. They have different nights with discounted growler fills on Troegs, Stoudts, Rogue, and I believe LBC now, which is the only reason I've ever gone.

The bartenders don't really know too much about all the different styles, which seems to be par for the course around here.

They have a good amount of beer on tap but since a great deal of people frequenting the place only buy macros, a lot of the microbrew kegs can be active well past their prime and I've had a few bad experiences with that.

The bottle selection is pretty decent, and is the only reason I've ever tried an Old Rasputin which was pretty awesome.

As for food, it sucks and is overpriced, but I don't go to bars for food anyway...

A: Stopped in on a Friday night. There were plenty of people there, but since the place is so big it did not seem like it was overly busy. A long big horseshoe shaped bar, ample seating. Lots of tables and booths all around the place and upstairs. There are pool tables, trivia, a few other games, and plenty of TV's.

Q: Based on the beers I had, there were no problems.

S: The service was just fine. The bartenders were for the most part knowledgable and friendly and quite prompt.

S: There are tons of beers on tap. 60+ beers on tap, lots of local selection, pa beers and others from around the country and world. There are also plenty of bottles.

F: It is your typical bar food type, nothing stand out here, but nothing bad. You come here for the beer not the food IMO.
