I love the people who hang out here. people of all kinds come here and enjoy a beverage of choice. sometimes a bit wet and nasty but it is a pub. service could be better slow but they do a lot of business. did not try food here and it is a bit pricey but they do run specials on drafts. Also another thing is I hate to complain about is parking is a bitch. if you go get here early or be prepared to walk a distance, or drive in a circle for a while.
The atmosphere though is a must to give it a shot.

Went and checked this place out with some seasoned Dave's veterans after some Piano Bar fun... definitely a nice atmosphere and a different crowd than across the street. The temperature was great for the patio, but there was room inside as well.

I was impressed with the beer selection for sure, although they were lacking a large variety of craft beers and imports. There were some, but not as many as I would like to see.

I didn't have any food, but I'd definitely go back to Dave's if I was in Birmingham again.

Dave's Pub; a beacon of light for those who enjoy good beer as opposed to mass produced swill. A Southside landmark for quite some time now. When it's not hot as blazes, a good place to sit on the patio and watch the world go by, via 20th Street South.

Good selection of beers, especially bottled imports. They had Pilsner Urqell on tap, which for me, having just moved back from Eastern Europe, was quite a surprise for this part of the world.

Overall, a good place to hang out and enjoy a few quality beers. Crowded with the college types on weekends.

Dave's Pub has been in Southside for a very long time and has always been known for their superior beverage selection. Inside there's a main bar area which is a little small but not ridiculous. There's also a back area with a pool table and bathrooms that can be used. It tends to be full of yuppie-type college kids.

Selection is among the best in Birmingham, which isn't saying much but because of the Prohibition laws it's impressive. I wish they had more taps, but they seem to have just about everything in bottles. Service is typical for a sometimes crowded bar but the bartenders know enough about the beer to get what you ask for without giving a dumb look.
