vibe: 4 | quality: 3.5 | service: 1.5 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4.5

The atmosphere was great. Kind of warehouse meets college bar, meets Applebees. Good band playing.

The quality of beer was allright, but the Stella Artois I had on tap tasted skunky. Having never had Stella before, I can't be sure. The Lake Effect Pale Ale was a solid offering.

The service was poor. The waiter was overworked and barely visited us after our first visit from him, 10 minutes or so after we were seated.

The bathrooms were in poor shape too. My wife said the ladies' room was as bad as any she's seen. Wet floors and "debris" on the stall walls.

The beer selection was great. Several great ontap selections, including one from another microbrewery in town.

The food was top notch, if pricey. It's been called high-end bar food and that fits. We had the meatloaf and Buffalo Chicken strips. Both were excellent.

Summary
Great beer, great food, poor service. It seems the management is cutting a few corners while banking on the popularity of it's location near the ball park in Buffalo.

Not enough servers, not enough staff to keep bathrooms clean, and not enough ketchup. A waitress asked for ours when we were done with it to use on another table.

I shouldn't let the management read this, but we'll probably go back, bad service and all. But we'd stop more often when passing through if we knew we could count on good service.

The beer is awful here. There have been numerous brewmasters throughout the years that have changed the recipe countless times. I can't even finish an American IPA here without struggling. Great place to watch a game or eat food but avoid the beers at all cost

Must visit if you're in the area. Live music on the weekends. Great, great, great food. Decent selection, rarely out of what you wanted.
