After reading the great reviews about this place on BA, we decided to hit this place up while a short trip to Vegas. I definitely regret making the effort.

Service: I had made reservation to get to this place. We arrived 5 to 10 minutes passed our reservation time (due to bad traffic). The hostess told us that "we were very late and should consider going somewhere else." I figured she was having a bad day, so I told her we would wait. We were seated 10 minutes after (not long at all). Our waiter, great guy, but told us that they were short staffed, therefore the service was slow (yet decent).

Beer: they had a good selection, I noticed Deschutes and Widmer on the menu. My only problem was that I felt overpriced! I tend to do beer flights (to find new beers). They averaged $4.50 per taster. What made it ridiculous was that they would charge you $4.50 for a taster of MILLER LITE! It is already a bad beer (surprisingly they offered it), and then it was overpriced (much like everything else). I believe you can buy a six pack for that price. Wow I was shocked!

Food: I had noticed other reviews had talked a lot about the burgers. I decided to order a burger for $20 (I figure there has to be some magic going on, ciabatta bread, blue cheese, etc). I was wrong. It wasn't that the burger was bad, but it wasn't $20 good. At best it was ok. I was there with 3 other friends and no one at my table was impressed.

Atmosphere: regular diner looking place. Lots of things hanging from the walls. You have to walk out of the restaurant to use the bathroom.

In conclusion, we were disappointed with this place. We ordered 4 burgers, and one beer. Our bill came out $88 and change, very overpriced. Not worth a repeat.

I would not waste your time trekking to this place if you're not already staying at Mandalay. After reading some reviews about strip craft beer places, I made the effort to get here from MGM, about a mile walk, not a huge thing. Was not worth it at all. The tap list was meh. It might be better at other times, but most of it was your typical wanna be craft from familiar sources, with a couple decent brews interspersed. The best brew on the list was Dogfish 90 minute. After that, had a local IPA from Joseph James, it was so so. Last, I decided to pull from the bottle list and had Stone IPA. They a few nice beers in their cellar but unless you're cool with paying 60 for a Sucaba, you won't be touching them. The service while sitting at the bar was terrible, one bartender who was constantly pooring drinks for the wait staff and didn't give a hoot about anything else. Food could have been decent, nice burgers. After a long wait, being served a cold burger and flaming hot onion rings did it for me. Not coming back. The Pub at Monte Carlo is the much better option. This place sucks....at least when I was there. Sitting down at a table might give you better service too.

An excellent selection of beers, very well organized on the menu, both on tap and in bottles. great prices for outstanding beers. Being from the east coast, there is a wide selection of beers that I normally can't get. To top if off, the burgers are fantastic.
