Stopped in on a Thursday night, and the lower level bar had 2 seats open which is what we needed. Bar is very large and takes up the majority of the floor with only maybe 3 tables and then some seating along the window. Quality of the beer was pretty solid, but I must say that I ordered an Atlas IPA and it was either very old or the lines were bad. I know that it was not supposed to taste like it did since I had it a few hours earlier in Tulsa. Selection is very nice, making it the best place in OKC to get a beer. I would like to see some of the handles replaced with some bigger beers though. The bottle selection is far superior to the draft selection.

Perfect. It doesn't get any better than this. I went hoping that they might have at least one Belgian style beer, and maybe a Rueben sandwich, and I was simply blown away with the selection of quality beer on tap, and then the incredible bottled beer cellar collection, and then a superb Rueben. However, as good as this was, the service, and in particular the bartender, was even better. What a wonderful stop on my way from Knoxville to Amarillo.

The parking sucks, but other than that, it's a nice spot. Three levels, nice staff. Beer selection is awesome, food is on point

Got the Irish lunch. A Guinness and a bowl of irish stew for like 7 bucks. It was great. I love this place.
