Not a bad place if you consider it's location. Kind of sketchy area, but not dangerous. It's small inside with concrete floors. a few tables and booths.

Beer - Selection is decent when again, you consider the location. I do wish they had more local brews on tap.

Food - I had the bratwurst. It was good, but a little dry/overcooked. The french fries were awesome. My friends had the all you can eat crab and they got their moneys worth.

Service - Exceptional. Never went long with out a fresh beer or request for any additional needs. THe guy handing out the crab was there whenever the plates got even just a little bit empty.

I will be back. If at least for a beer and french fries.

Nice, small neighborhood bar with a good beer selection. At the corner of Ponce and Brockett it has a great location from 285 and the Decatur crowd. The food is outstanding and the owner John and his staff do a top notch job at serving your every need. 10 or so beers on tap, first place i saw in ATL with Magic Hat and Ten Fiddy on draft, with a good rotation of seasonals and a few staple american light beers for the no beer snob. Cooler has a good selection of 30 to 40 beers with Dogfish Head, Duchesse, and other well known Micros. Can't go wrong with this place for Clarkston. Try it on one of its pig pickens' too its outstanding.

I really want tolike this place as the owner is affable and trying to make a go of it in a slightly marginal neighborhood, but one that is fairly convenient to Decatur and the highway. The beer is well kept and the service is attentive, but this place is just sorta average. It looks okay from the outside, but its a little dark inside and doesn't really seem to get a beer clientele. As others have mentioned, they have about 10 taps and a small cooler with what looked like 20 or so bottled beers in the cooler. The coolers have some bottles of interest, but I got the impression there is not a lot of turnover there. The most interesting thing on tap was Sweetwater Roadtrip. I hope that this place makes it and expands their selection, but as of now I'm worried that the neighborhood won't support it.Okay for a quick stop, but I'd like to see something more interesting on tap.

The Brockett Pub House and Grill is owned and operated by a former manager of the Summit's chain. He has taken the best of his experience and applied it to his own creation at the corner of Brockett Street and E. Ponce de Leon in Clarkston, GA. The atmosphere is nice, clean, and simple with wood, mirrors, nice lighting, and flat screen TVs. You can't find a friendlier staff anywhere in the greater Atlanta area. There is about 10 taps and about 40 different types of beer in bottles. A lot of thought has been put into the selection. It varies from the usual macros, to American micros (including North Coast Old Rasputin), to a few Belgian beers such as Westmalle Dubbel and Triple, so everyone has a few beers that they are interested in. The food selection is a notch above the standard bar food selection. They have the regular burgers, brots, etc., but also have items like baked bree. I had the chicken breast sandwich and it was one of the best I have ever had, very juicy. There is a small game room off to one side with video games, a pool table, and pinball. This pub is obviously a diamond in the rough for this area and I'm sure it will be popular once the locals catch on.
