visited for lunch on june 5th/07.

the burger bar is a long narrow space with a nice marble topped bar running along one side, booths on the other, and tables up the middle. lots of dark wood on the walls gives it a bit of an "english library" feel, but there's a definite modern slant too. 24 taps, about half craft and half imports, mostly more common stuff. the music playing was odd...early 90s pop/hiphop type stuff, with some other less interesting stuff mixed in.

quality was good. one thing i found a little odd was two different beer menus: the regular one with their draft list and some bottles, and a "reserve" list with some wackier belgian and other imports. definitely ask for the reserve menu (which was in a nice chimay book). the two beers i had were good, one i'd never heard of.

the service was great. we sat at the bar, and the bartender was attentive without being annoying. the "beer guy" was quick to answer our questions and very helpful, even when we asked about other places in the area to visit. the only real faux-pas was when the bartender noticed i still had about a half ounce in the bottom of my bottle and dumped it into my glass before i could protest. i only had a sip left in the glass and didn't really care, but would have been unhappy had this happened at the start of my glass.

the selection was better than i expectd in a casino, but nothing too crazy. while most of the imports are more common stuff, it was nice to see the chimay white on tap and several things in bottles that i'd never tried before.

the food was excellent. this place is great, since even your non-beer geek companions will enjoy the visit (and the couple macro taps may be to their liking anyway). we both really enjoyed our burgers. my wife said the lemonaid was the best ever - not too sweet or acidic, and she also really liked the sweet potato fries and what seemed to be home made dressing.

i thought the prices were reasonable. they weren't spectacular, but definitely better than i expected in a casino (and less than i paid at a few other places in the area). i'd happily return and would recommend this as a good beer oasis on the fairly bland vegas strip.

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.
