Well, the newer Tenaya location may be prettier, but Nellis is my first stop when I hit town...often even before I check in at the hotel. Cool dive bar / pool hall feel with an always interesting draught beer lineup. The waitstaff and bartenders are reasonably well educated and always very personable. The one rating I wish I could give is for value...the prices are very reasonable, which makes them practically dirt-cheap for Las Vegas.

Pool hall/dive bar with an awesome beer selection. Quite a hike from the strip, but well worth it for the beer enthusiast. 20 taps, and an awesome rare bottle selection. Bottles to go if you wish. Great bar food, pizza was excellent for pairing with good beers. Video poker and multi-game gambling at the bar. It definitely has a locals vibe, but everyone was cool.

I love this place---probably my favorite beer bar in the world. The selection isn't the broadest, but boy is it deep. Special events are great and the food it top notch. Overall you can't go wrong.

visited here for dinner and drinks before a flight out of Vegas.

The atmosphere is a little rougher than I imagined for a "beer bar", seems like more of a locals bar that happens to have a great tap list of beers. But then I did remember we're in Vegas. Smoky, video poker machines in the bar, tons of TV's showing sports. There is a side area with some tables, some high tops around the bar, and a side room with pool tables.

Taplist was very heavy on Stone beers, with other West Coast craft beers filling in the gaps. Some one-offs or speciality releases mixed in. Lots of IPA's. You order by tap #, and the menu clearly states name, style, ABV, ounces of pour, and prices. There was a video monitor with the same info too. Also some high priced vintage large bottles available.

Waitress was attentive and friendly, service was good. Food was better than expected, pretty tasty, and came out quick. Beers were a little pricey.

Went to aces and ales on super bowl Sunday. $25 cab ride from the strip. As we walked in, a bartender stopped us and asked if we had a reservation. We said no and she informed us that all seats were reserved. Fine; she said we could stand if we wanted but warned us service would be slow. Ok; funny thing was that there were open seats at the bar the whole time we were there but we weren't allowed to sit. The waitresses were not happy that we were standing so they glared at us the whole time we were there. It was hard to get any service at the bar ; again the place was busy but not packed. Place was smokey in addition. Shame is that the beer selection was awesome but we were not going to stay there after the rudeness we experienced. We left at half time and spent our money elsewhere. Vegas prices which means expensive.

Never going back there again.
