We went here not expecting much, just going for trivia night. The place turns out being pretty damn good. Had St. Bernardus Abt 12, Rouge Chocolate Stout, DFH 60, Stone Ruination IPA, Leffe, and several others on tap. Also had to very large selection of bottled beer, Rouge Hazelnut Brown, Rouge Mocha Porter, Westmalle, Rochefort, and several others. Prices were pretty good as well, the St. Bernardus Abt 12 on tap was only $6 for a 12 oz. pour, which isn't to bad of a price. The food is okay, wings are really good, but what do you really need when you have good beer.

The beer selection is impressive for Smyrna (not known for quality beer bars.) I've had nothing but crappy service at the bar, however. Seriously - you think you might die of thirst before your bartender comes around again. And regardless of what night it is or how busy it is - the bartenders are painfully slow, get your order wrong (or ask you twice,) and are inattentive.

1/2 price wings on Mondays, late night (10pm) trivia on Wednesdays (where one topic in every round is Sex.) Crowd is typical. Pinball, Golden Tee, and bar shuffleboard. Great darts area. The restaurant, as previously mentioned, is seperate, and I've never visited.

Went to this place to meet some friends for dinner. The restaurant and the bar areas are separated out. I guess this is to create more of a family atmosphere in the restaurant. I didn't visit the restaurant, and only saw the bar area. The bar area includes neon signs, TV's etc. However, it is relatively cozy despite the signs and TV's. Service was pretty good. Our server wasn't incredibly knowledgeable about the beer selection, but he was quick to bring out the food and drinks. Considering the Smyrna area, this place has a pretty good selection. Terrapin, Sweetwater and Old Chub were on tap. Bottled beers included a good amount of Belgians - namely Rochefort, Westmalle, and Chimay. Bottled brews included Dogfish Head, Oskar Blues (can, of course), more Terrapin and Sweetwater. Of course, there's the typical selection of the macros. The food was pretty damn good. The fish and chips were outstanding, and pretty reasonable. I would go back to this place, if it were a little bit closer.
