The selection is fantastic here. I never tried the cocktails or food (do they really serve food? Maybe, but I never noticed.) But the beers are great, for a decent price. And of course the retro games and atmosphere are fun. Just beware of how crowded it gets on weekends.

It's a bar that's also an arcade. Get it? What more is there to say?

Fine. I can say a bit more. They have good prices on great beer (most beers are $6, many beers have over 90 on Beer Advocate. They've even had Bourbon County Stout on draft a few times!). I believe happy hour runs 7 days a week. Happy hour means beers are $1 cheaper. Marble Madness is a really fun game but I don't really want to promote it because I like how no one's ever playing it when I go there. It's also impossible to beat by level 4. Anyway, this place gets super crowded pretty early on Friday and Saturday nights, but during the day and during the week, it's a great, spacious place to chill out.

I come here 9 out of 10 times I'm in Williamsburg. You should too.
