The revamped bar and kitchen area have improved the vibe. They have expanded the draft selection and now have huge tv screens dedicated to what is on draft, and on deck. The selection is amazing, the breakfast is very good. You can get drinks on Saturday mornings, but not Sunday mornings(3rd shifter). There isn't a place in the area with a better selection of craft beer on draft.

Vibe: This place is located near the interchange with I-75 and US 40. It definitely has the look and feel of a sports bar as there are lots of TVs and sports-themed decorations on the walls. The bar is located on one end of the room and the rest is a large seating area with some additional located on the front patio.

Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperature but all came in pint glasses. I had an 11% wheatwine that was aged in bourbon barrels that would have been more appropriate to serve in a snifter glass.

Service: I went on trivia night and the place was pretty crowded, but they had a few waiters/waitresses working so the service was good.

Selection: What sets this place out is its selection. They have two flat screen TVs on the wall that cycle between the list of beers on-tap and upcoming events. The board lists the details for each beer (I.e., style, ABV, IBUs) and also lists the beers that are on-deck and waiting to be tapped. Some of the taps were BMCs but about 75% were devoted to craft beers, several of which were limited releases.

Food: They have a pretty large menu with various types of bar foods (e.g., appetizers, wings, burgers, sandwiches) with salads available for the health conscious. I had a black and blue burger with bacon and bleu cheese that was served in a basket with chips.

Value: Prices were inexpensive and seemed very reasonable compared to other bars in the area. This would make for a great alternative spot to stop at for someone passing through along I-75 that doesn't want to eat at a generic fast food place.

This place is a diamond in the rough! The outside of the building looks like your typical wanna be Frickers with bud light and mgd neon signs everywhere. But it's about two minutes from where I work so I decided to stop in there for lunch one day. Man am I glad I did!!

First off they atmosphere was pretty nice. Lots of tv's, and lots of space. There table were very spread out, and they have a lot of sitting room at the bar. Two giant 60" tv's are used to display their huge selection of draft beers and also their "on deck beers" (the kegs coming up next)

The quality of beer they had ranged wildly!!! They had everything from nati light in a can, to North Coast pranqster on draft (delicious by the way) Their food is the same way, everything from cheap bar food, including cheddar cubes (delicious deep fried cheddar cubes, with their own in house breading) They also have a nice steak selection, with Friday specials on their NY strip (which is also phenomenal)

The service is fantastic, I've gone three or four times in the past week now, the bartender is an avid Brown's fan, which is good for me because I'm originally from Cleveland. He's remembered what beer I get and what I eat every time I come in. Me and my fiance have also ate dinner there a couple times and the server remembered what beer I had 4 days earlier. Bartender is quick with getting the drinks, and the servers always have a smile, you can't really ask for anything else out of a bar.

Great selection of draft beers. 25 or 26 different taps, however that includes the bl, budweiser, coors, etc. Overall I'd say anywhere from 15-20 craft taps. Not really much of a bottle selection. But with that many taps who needs bottles? What I really like about this place is that it shows what beers are going to be on draft soon. The board changes every two or three days, so there's always something new.

Food was delicious and very inexpensive. Great cheeseburgers for only $6, $8 NY strip steak on Fridays, different food specials every day, and once again their cheese cubes because that is by far the best thing on the menu.

For 2 22oz craft drafts, an order of cheese cubes and two entrees me and my fiance's total has never been more than $35 dollars. $7 22oz craft drafts $5 for 16oz drafts. $4 appetizers. For the service and the price I don't think there's a better bar in Dayton.

Great place with a decent selection of Craft Beer. Most of the beers tend to be Great Lakes Brewing Company. The food is delicious and they have a great breakfast menu on the weekends from 8am until 1pm

The beer prices are really inexpensive. I had a 22 oz Great Lakes Hop Monster for about $7. It is a NASCAR and Browns bar, but they have plenty of Televisions for watching other events.

There is an outdoor patio for smoking that also has some televisions on it. They tend to get really busy on friday and saturday night with plenty of locals.
