This place is located within a new development of trendy food and boutique stores that appeal to the trendsters (like raw food extremists and women who love patterned cloth bags)... fortunately most of the development is still empty because there aren't many of these people around in Oklahoma, which means plenty of parking! The first thing I noticed when I pulled up was the type of crowd coming to this place, which includes the aforementioned trendster and rich snobbists who are there to be seen and don't even drink beer. If you don't drive a Lexus, Mercedes, Audi, BMW or Hummer... you don't fit in... sorry.

Fortunately for the rest of us the place does have one of the larger selections of beer in town... especially that part of town. The decor is pretty cool, with a giant beer wall right in the entrance. Great place to watch sports too with plenty of large flat screen TVs... unfortunately the day I went was all NASCAR, all the time. The food is pretty impressive, but don't expect to get out of there for anything less than $60 (especially if you're having multiple beers). The wait time is pretty obnoxious though since the place is fairly small and no one plans on leaving because there's not much else around... except a raw food restaurant (which no one wants to go to). You can get a beer while you wait if you can reach the bar, but don't go outside because you will get yelled at. The service was average... I would imagine it would be pretty hit or miss depending on who you get. I can say I wasn't terribly impressed and it took a while for things to arrive, like water and menus. I think he actually asked us what we wanted to eat before even showing us a menu.

They have real towels and blue accent lightning around EVERYTHING in the bathroom... thought I'd throw that out there to summarize.

Decent place, but a bit too hipster for me. The night I went the taplines were all down, but they have a huge bottle selection which made it alright.

Food was decent and prices were reasonable. Overall a doo spot to visit, but I'll take Tapwerks over this.

Great combo of a hip place but also with enough beer to feel more like a public house. Unique patio area, surprisingly good food and reasonably priced.

Love the feel of this place. Not many sports bars have such a nice beer selection. Probably 25+ taps with lots of local goodies including Bomb!. Quality was decent, some of the taps were not served at the optimal temp, but it was minor. Service was spotty, but good overall. Prices were okay- $8 for 12 oz glass of bomb, $7 for a flight of 4 beers. My food was pretty bad and my wife didn't care for hers either.

After a harrowing 12hr drive from Nashville that involved some of the worst road conditions I have ever driven in we finally arrived in OKC and headed straight here to catch the second half of the Super Bowl. Upon entering the first thing I noticed was the huge TV's hanging all over the place, couldn't have picked a better place to watch the game. Took a minute to get someone to seat us but once they did it was mostly smooth sailing. Atmosphere was pretty good, once the game got really out of hand most people left for home. Service was pretty good, only had to really wait once. Quality was pretty high. The space felt high end and my beers came in the correct glasses. Selection was killer. I was only interested in local OK beers and they had plenty to offer. I got a Prairie Birra which was nice and I got a Prairie Bomb! for dessert which was a more than welcome surprise to see on the menu. Food was solid. I got a burger which was drenched in BBQ sauce, I ended up just eating it with a fork and knife. Also tried some of the ruben sandwich which was quite good as well. Not really a fan of the no sides included but whatever. Prices were a little high, especially for some of the beers. Overall a really nice modern pub, I could see myself watching some games here and having a few beers.

A very contemporary bar; high ceilings, large copper-clad bar, clean black decor, floor to ceiling windows. Lots of TVs for watching sports. There are even small wide screens at the urinals so you won’t miss any plays!

The beer selection is wide and fairly deep. There are 60 or so drafts. The menu is nicely laid out by style of beer. The beers hail from all over; imports, US, and local OK beers. Styles cover the gamut from light lagers, through Belgians, to the standard pales/IPAs/wheats/porters/stouts, etc. I didn’t look at the bottle menu too much, but there were at least 100 flavors available.

The food is quite tasty. Pub food taken up a notch. My “Republic Burger” was cooked as I asked for (not the norm for American restaurants). It came with blue cheese, arugula, and a fried egg.

Last, but not least, there was no one smoking here. Something they still do in bars in Oklahoma City.

I'd definitely come back next time I'm in OKC.

Visited this place twice, found the place a bit hard to find even with my Tom Tom...

This place has an upscale sports bar feel, with a nice mordern edge to it. The only real detractors to theis place, not a great place to have a pint ( looks like you get 14 ozes) & a conversatio, too damn noisy, plus annoying music. Additionally, the clientel is a bit too rich & stuffy for my liking. I will still viist this, this place far more to my liking than Tap Werks

All beers I've tried I have been in great shape

Service at the bar was great both times, the two bar tenders that served me were friendly & liked talking beer if time allowed

Selection was great roughly 40 taps, no real throw aways. I would've prefred a little more emphasis on Oklahoma & regional beers. Always something worth trying. The bottled beer list was good, not great. Would love to see a cask offering

The food is stellar here. Everything I've tried has impressed me, frankly this the best food I've had in OKC (been here for 5 weeks). Gastro Pub type food with pretty good portion size

This place isn't cheap, but the quality of the food beer have made me happy. This place will be what I'll be thinking about as I visit other OKC beer destinations
