I ended up at the Ginger Man on a recent business trip to Dallas. We had a helluva time finding the place because it is located on a small side street and looks like any other old house on the block.

Definitely not the nicest bar in town, but it was clean and homey. The booths up in the front are about the most uncomfortable things I have ever placed my ass in, so find a chair if at all possible. It looked like there was a lot of cool, outdoor seating behind the place, and even some cushy chairs upstairs.

The beer selection was great, and they even had a few little gems thrown in that I wasn't expecting. Tons of taps + tons of bottles = tons of great brews and good times.

I can't really comment on the food, because all I had was a meat, cheese, and fruit tray. This was good, but hardly spectacular.

The worst thing about the Ginger Man was the service. We sat around for a long time without even seeing a wait person when we first arrived. I finally went to the bar and even had to wait quite awhile there before the bartender finished her conversation that she was having with another person behind the bar. I ended up having to get my own beer twice due to the absence of the wait person, and both those times I had to wait excessively long for the bartender who was NOT busy serving customers. A waitress finally made an appearance late in my visit, and she was very nice and helpful from then on. She did make a mistake on the bill, but recognized it immediately when I pointed it out and was quick to correct it.

The Ginger Man is definitely worth the stop if you are close to downtown Dallas. I just hope that my experience with their service was an isolated incident.

Fantastic place. Great old pub feel. Wood, wood, wood, wood. Taps, copper, beer garden and an upstairs lounge style laid back area. It's a great place. I don't smoke cigars, but they have them. The ladies behind the bar were great. Christine and Whitney... Thanks.

This place is absolutely a craft beer lover's dream come true. The atmosphere is amazing, dark lighting, dark lacquered wood, warm and lively company downstairs and quieter more relaxed atmosphere upstairs with armchairs and couches. The outside area with the overlooking loft effectively gives you 4 different locations you can sit down and drink at and I find myself moving around from beer to beer. The staff is SO knowledgeable and friendly, they will gladly let you sample any beer you like or help you choose a brew based on what you like. The selection is amazing, I've always been extremely impressed with what they have to offer, both on tap and in bottles. The food I gave a medium rating simply because they only really serve a small numbers of snack / appetizer items, its just not a food kind of bar. HIGHLY recommend this one to anyone in the area!!!!
