Went here for the birthday celebration of two friends. It was a Saturday so the place was packed and there was an hour wait for a table. This is to be expected, but it was colorful and vibrant. Lots of good energy. We ended up getting a table within 15 minutes and the service throughout the whole time was great, considering the place was packed to the brim. One of my friends even got a waitress' number.

They have a beer menu that is many pages, all seperated into styles of beer, with ABV listed next to every selection. Everything from Chimay Grand Reserve, to Schlitz. Even the coveted Sam Adam's Utopia that goes for $150.

All the beers that my friends and I ordered were served in appropiate glassware. Tulips for Belgians, etc etc. My only nay say, is that I believe my Chimay was served too cold, but I let it warm up for a bit.

Standard pub food with some nice twists. I ordered the Turkey Burger and it was good, very good. Hit the spot.

You pay for what you get. Expensive beer is expensive, and vice versa, but overall a good deal all around. I had a great time. Good friends, good food, good brew. Can't ask for much else.

Went here maybe 2 months ago & was impressed by the huge draft list. However, literally the first 5 beers I ordered from it they had "just run out of." Food was pretty solid though.
