This place has atmosphere written all over it. It is a great wooden floor pub with dart boards, a long bar, a comfy lounge upstairs, and a tree-shaded biergarden out back that begs spring & fall to last all year. The quality is great, as they know their beers, how to keep them, and how to serve them. The service often leaves something to be desired, and is the weak point here. The staff is great, there just aren't enough of them. The selection is wonderful, really one of the two best in town. There is a goodly selection of taps and a larger selection of bottles with constant new brews to try in each format. The food is good but very limited. The cheese platter is the way to go to stem the munchies. All in all a fantastic place & I'd recommend it any time you're near downtown Dallas.

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!!!!
