Pretty decent place. The atmosphere is a mix between a sports bar and an upscale business class hangout... so the big screens and the hot waitress' were enjoyable for me :) They have always had some pretty decent brews on tap, Bell's, Stone, Victory, etc. etc. Nothing is ever rare or out of this world but a decent mix from some of the better Midwest breweries. They definitely don't rotate as often as they need to, though. Service for me has been mostly pretty damn bad. Sometimes they can be very quick to refill your glass and sometimes not, depending on the worker and how busy it is. I have yet to have a waiter or waitress that know a fucking thing about beer, let alone THEIR beer! My first experience at this place I asked the waiter what they had on tap. His response, "What don't me have!?!?!?! lol" Fuck that. Bring me a Westy 12 right this instant. Kate? Furious? Food is a bit better than you'll find at a sports bar with a couple interesting items and also steaks. Tuesdays they have $2 pints which is fucking amazing. Other than that, it's pretty average with expensive bottles as usual. Overall a pretty decent place and would be frequented more if I worked or lived within a couple miles.

This is my weekly watering hole. I stop by on Tuesday's with a regular group of work buddies and BA'ers to decompress and because of their $2 pint night specials on all of their 36 taps. They have 4 x pool tables and darts mingled with lots of TV's on the walls and louder music playing all the time.

The food is above average "bar food" and consistently good. If you go, try the 'Godfather Melt' and/or spicy garlic chicken wings, they are always good, filling and tasty.

I don't think they rotate their keg selections enough, but for what it's worth, I know they always have at least 1-2 Bell's beers including Two Hearted and Stone Arrogant Bastard.

Also, depending on the server you get (at least on Tuesday nights) dictates your experience there - good and responsive or pretty much non-existent & horrible. Also, don't expect the staff to know much about their current beer selections, short of providing you a generic list of current draft beers selections on their drink menu...

In all, it's the best place I have found in Mason and it's close to work for me, (but I've been to better bars in Cincinnati).

If your traveling from either of the coasts (West or East), check it out. They usually have a nice variety of midwest drafts and bottled beers to choose from.

CAREFUL THOUGH, make certain you know the prices of their bottled beers BEFORE ordering them. One time I decided to try a bottle of Delirium Tremens and they charged me $18!!!! That is, when it's $7.00 or $8.00 in local beer stores...

This was quite simply the favorite place I visited when I was in Ohio. I went here every night as it was down the street from my hotel. An awesome selection of brews with DFH, Avery, Great Lakes, Lots of imports, and tons of other micros on tap. The food was just as good with a ton of good sandwhich options and the more deleictable steaks and ribs. Overall this was an outstanding place if you arei n the area, I would highly recommed stopping in! The service was great, the beer was great, not a bad word I can say about them
