Visited this place recently with a friend when I made beer-run from Gulfport, MS to visit the BeerBuddha at Martins Wine Cellar. Had a very extensive selection of draft beer on the menu and even more in bottles. I think I counted seventy-six different draft selections. Had some things not typically found on draft in the area. I had an Optimator on draft that was delicious and a Philly Cheesesteak wrap that was also very tasty. Will definitely return when I come back to Metairie for my next beer-run.

I've been here numerous times just never fot around to reviewing it. Lagers is owned by the same people that own the Bulldog so their beer selection is outstanding and the food selection is great as well. Crawfish banditos are incredible. Probably about 30-40 beers on tap and 70 beer in bottles. The place gets REALLY crowded so finding a parking spot is next to impossible(I park over at the mall or after 7pm you can park at Firestone)and finding a seat can be difficult as well which is why during the spring it is nice to sit outside. The waitresses are a bit knowledgable...and some are hot which is nice. Overall a great place to drink when you are in Metairie and not near a Bulldog.

As was correctly stated at the bottom of the review list and incorrectly stated more recently, Lagers has 75 beers on tap and claims to have ~100 different bottles in the two large coolers (I've never counted the bottles).

Lot's of typical American and European beers on tap (BMC plus Amstel/Heineken/Bass/Guiness) plus a bunch of American craft beers and less common European imports. The bottle collection is similar and usually carries my favorite - Aventinus. They keep their beer collection listed on their web site (a pdf).

The quality of the draft beer here is always top notch. I've never had off tasting draft at Lager's.

The bar tenders range from decent to great. They willingly give samples of the beer they have on tap and give feedback on the draft and bottles. The wait staff usually sucks and doesn't know what I'm saying when I ask for Aventinus. One time I got "half a Guiness." If you're going there just to drink beer, I recommend trying to get a spot at the bar.

The place feels like a nice beer pub. I've got decent feedback from some Brits I brought there once. Of course, I've never been to a pub they would typically have a pint at. It feels a little more cafe style during the day if you sit at a booth or a table.

The food is typical bar food: (burgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken fingers, quesadillas) plus some plate style dishes that seem to vary. The food is good enough, but I'm going there for the beer.

Prices seem on par with other such establishments. They run daily specials and have happy hour pricing.

I come here every once and a while. A good place close to home where i can enjoy a good beer at a bar.
It seems to have about 30 beers on tap. Bottled beer are around 75 (if memory serves me right. IMO the best american were a few rogues. Seems to have a balance between the styles, but a little short on the belgiums.
service is good. friendly. Pretty attentive to when i want/need another beer.
food is ok. Certainly good food, but not anything all that special around here.
Value is ehhh, i guess about average. Not pricey, but not cheap.

Overall a place to check out.

Atmosphere reminded me of sitting in my beer room, all the mirrors and posters.. but they have more TV's and more tap handles... and the tap handles are attached to kegs.. and what a variety. Had a very hard time choosing which beers were going to be sampled, they even have their own menu for beer. The food was very quick, very hot and very good and was priced very affordable (dinner with beer for 2 was $21 before tip). And I loved the oddly shaped fries. Wish I could get one of those here on the corner. The only problem that I had was being an out of towner I ran across it by accident and the parking was hard to come by, but I noticed that about alot of places in NO. I will be going back.

Not bad! I’m a sucker for any place with enough beers to have a brew menu. Chances are if you ask they have it. The food is pretty good as well. Atmosphere reminds me of Bennigan’s on a Friday night. I guess the only downside is the location. Metairie isn’t really bad but out of all the places in the NO area its not quit on par with the quota. Overall a definite selection for a beer drinker.

Lagers is located in Metairie on the main drag of restaurant row as any typical suburb making you think it was going to the usually theme type environment. I was quite impressed that it was still setup like a local pub with 75 taps. With over 10 taps of German Brews and 8 from England I was really impressed. The draft is served in a frosted pint glass so you need to tell your server if you prefer a room temp. Food was also very impressive which is something you do not typically find in a pub style atmosphere. Great place to drink, eat and socialize.
