Stopped by here for lunch during a recent visit.

Atmosphere is nice. The bar is directly in front of the entrance with seafood on ice as the main attraction. Tables are on both sides of the bar and there were a few other tables out front. No TV's.

Quality is good. I only had one beer but it was a good temperature and had a good amount of head.

Service was good. I never waited long for drink, food, or check and the bartender was on top of things.

Selection was solid. They had a few brews from Real Ale on-tap along with the omni-present Shiner. Their bottle selection was also solid with some more common Belgians. Nothing spectacular but you can find something here.

Food was good. I had clam chowder and de-constructed fish tacos, both were nicely done.

Value is a bit on the expensive side. Nothing over the top but it's not the best deal in town.

Overall I was a fan of this place. The seafood was very good and the beer selection was a nice accompaniment. Not worth going out of your way for but a nice option if you're relegated to downtown.

This is an upscale cafe right on the Riverwalk associated with the Watermark Hotel. I was at a conference and was able to escape for a relaxing lunch and quality beer. Not many taps, but all of them were rarely seen on the Riverwalk, and no BMC in sight. Stone Pale Ale, Dogfish Head Pale, Real Ale Fireman's, Chimay, and others. Had a seafood sandwich that was delicious! Nice menu that would bring me back. Service was a bit lacking for the luxury feel they're going for, had to wait quite a while for a new beer and they weren't very busy. Overall, it was a very satisfying experience, especially considering the environment. It seems like if you need a top quality craft beer on the Riverwalk, this might be about the only option, but it's also a very good one.
