They have a very nice selection of beers. However, I was disappointed in the small variety of porters and stouts. I think they had two stouts and no porters when I went. The waitress didn't seem to know much about the beers, luckily beeradvocate is my friend, ha.

The food is typical bar food, but was very good.

I've gone to the Pour House maybe a dozen times over the past few years, but I am never the one to suggest it.

The selection on tap is really quite nice, but unfortunately I've had several beers here that obviously have been spoiled by unclean tap lines. You know, that sour and just plain mildewy off-ness. Not most beers I've had here, but definitely enough to not want to risk it again.

The service is very hit and miss, even when the place isn't that crowded. I've had food come out after less than 10 minutes, but it was not even warm in the center. Otherwise the food is OK.

The bartenders really don't know beer other than memorizing all of the names of the beers that they have on tap. It's not a huge deal because this isn't the kind of place you go to be a beer nerd. This is the kind of place you go to play big buck hunter and yell at your friends across the table.

I will not go back to this place, which is strange to say because years ago it use to be one of my favorite bars. I went to watch a PSU football game there this fall and was beyond disappointed. I got a draft wild turkey stout and had to send it back because it was undrinkable. They clearly had not cleaned their taps in a long time. My friend ordered a yuengling can, which had rust all over it. He ordered the appetizer sample and things were not cooked all the way through, including the mozzarella sticks that were chewy and not melted at all in the inside.

There's some good here (the beer selection), some bad (atmosphere, service) and some pretty okay (food).

First: the beer selection is comparable to the other best beer selection in town, the Mellow Mushroom just a few blocks from here. But M.M. has The Pour House beat when it comes to food, atmosphere, and service. Hands down. No contest.

Food was okay, no real complaints there. The appetizer serving of fried pickles was a meal in and of itself, although these were sliced too thinly. But not bad at all.

Atmosphere is junky. Too much light, and way too sports bar-ish. Tons of TVs playing sports (and nobody watching) and tons of Budweiser flags and banners everywhere. Bah.

Service was next to terrible. First, they charged us for beers we didn't order; they poured us beers we didn't order; they forgot altogether to take my friend's beer order after sorting out my order ("sorting out" meaning I had to tell the waitress that they actually DID have Great Lakes Nosferatu on tap...she had no idea what I was talking about); and not bringing us things like napkins or silverware with our meal. DOUBLE BAH.

A great selection of taps saves this place. 3 different Southern Tier beers; two different Bell's beers; two different Duck Rabbit beers; two Red Oak (NC) beers; several Great Lakes offerings; two or three Stone brews. And lots, lots more. And Coors of course. And a few other macro-swill offerings.

Glad I went once, but really no reason to go again when Mellow Mushroom exists in G'boro.

The Pourhouse currently has the most taps in Greensboro, NC with 62.

Somewhat of a sports bar (Steelers fans will love this place, as well as rugby players; official groups of both meet here on certain nights), the night to go is Wednesdays when every beer is 1/2 off. (used to be all beers $2.00, but with Golden Monkey, Red and White, Pumpking, etc. on tap, i guess they got wise to that. Also on wednesdays, they serve 1/2 price burgers (a good thing, since they are normaly $10!) They are delicious, with toppings like fried egg and bacon jam.

the individual tvs in the booths are nice

i have been going to this bar for awhile now the food is good the beer selection is really good for bars in greensboro and not a bad price. for awhile they did $2 pints on wednesdays but now it is half price pints which the most expensive is $2.75 and that is a good price considering it is things like old rasputin or things of that nature they have things for every type of beer drinker which is good to find in greensboro not just the BMC that is at every other bar but if you are in the greensboro area i recommend this bar on a wednesday night
