I'm not a huge fan of the whole family-style bar and grill setting for when I'm wanting to try craft beers, but it's more tolerable if you're there with a decent amount of friends. Impressive amount of taps, and I do get a kick out of the whole beer club idea. The food's pricey (as it is at any chain like this), but it's better than some other places.

This chain pizza joint tauts its 110 Beer tour as the best beer selection in the area, but out of 110 beers there really isn't much to pick from. Not a single IPA on the hole list, but list local favorite as Michelob Ultra, ugh. Having 25 different Macro's and 50 different InBev Euro lagers doesn't actually give you a very big selection. While they did have a few suprises like a couple Rogue offerings, and Red Chimay, there still wasn't to much to get excited about. Plus it never fails every time I have been there the first beer I ordered was out. This time it was bodingtons - I settled for a bluebird bitter. Last time it took me 5 tries from the so called huge selection to get something they actually had in stock.

The atomsphere is typical Shennagins style chain with sports on a few TVs.
The service was good, but I have yet to actually have a waiter or waitress who actually knew anything about their beers.
The food was good, some decent unusual pizza offerings and decent pasta, but nothing great. A touch on the expensive side.
