Again--I don't know what's up the CF beer crew, but this is absolutely not a beer bar. The best beer they have on tap is a Sam Adams variant, and the "craft" bottles are 90% from Inbev. The only true craft options are Boulevard Wheat and Millstream, and last I checked those exact same beers were offered by every single bar in the Cedar Falls area.

This is a decent little campus sportsbar. That's it. It is not, in any way, a beer bar.

Not bad for selection (both beer and food), taste of beer and food are acceptable, would be nice to see some better variety coming out of their micro selection (seasonal or perhaps new mainstay brews) - the price, like most of his restaurants is definitely a bit over the average for like quality places I've been to -

Disclaimer: This is probably my second favorite place to go on The Hill, right after The OP.

A: This place is pretty cool, for The Hill that is. Neat UNI Panther memorabilia on the walls and TV's everywhere, however it's no different than any other sports bar and grill.

Q: The food is good, and their burgers are great, I'd recommend any of their burgers.

S: The service is pretty good, however, I seem to find myself wanting the waitress around more often.

S: The selection is fairly poor, which is disheartening considering they are an offshoot of a bar with a brewery in it. They will usually have your seasonals on tap with a few imports, but besides that, prepare yourself for Bud Light.

F: As I aforementioned, the burgers are great, and the appetizers are pretty delicious.

V: The food, while alright, is extremely overpriced.

Overall, I love this place purely for the Panther atmosphere, besides that I'd make my way just a little bit up The Hill.
