One of the best places in big D to have quality beers, and the food is far better than most other locales

Very cool place. My wife described it as having a "yuppster" vibe, too fancy for true hipsters but very obvious with its over the top efforts to be cool. It's a bit much, but fun and very Dallas. The food looked promising, though we didn't eat. The beer was well kept and the staff seemed very legitimately knowledgeable. The draft selection was very good and the bottle selection is approaching epic, though you apparently have to know to ask for certain things that aren't advertised on the menu. I'd put this on the must do for any hardened beer geek visiting Dallas.

A trendy place that balances both the tap selection and food. Was there on a Tuesday at about 6. No wait for a table, but the place filled up soon after. Make reservations! High quality tap list with about 40 items. Not enough locals (2 or 3) and too much Dog Fish Head (at least 10), but good stuff, none the less. The food was superb.Small dishes, all very well prepared. I was with three others and we shared the mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, mussels Diablo, and meat board. The sprouts, with its tasty bits of caramelized pancetta and the mussels with plenty of garlic, spicy broth were the standouts. Service could have been a bit speedier, but not that big a deal. Very little parking, plan on valet. Would I return? For just the food, no. For just the beer, no. Having both, though makes it worth the trip.

Good selection within the 40 taps. Plenty of bottled choices if the taps don't excite you. Friendly and knowledgable staff. Kind of loud but not overpowering. Great place to go when you're in Dallas.

I was in Dallas for work and was able to stop by for an enjoyable customer dinner.
This is an attractive space. As you enter there is the hostess stand and then the bar is off to your left. The dining area and washrooms are off to the right.
I liked the stained glass Elvis, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis. The ceilings are angular and of varying heights. There is also a patio which is always nice.

The waiter was friendly and knew the beer & food menus.

The beer list is large and varied by brewer and style. I had a great Gose and a really nice Pale Ale. Beer was served in the correct glassware.

The food was very good. We enjoyed a lamb appetizer, some good salads and entrees. Dessert was an awesome Blueberry Crumble with Ice-cream.

It was crowded and had a nice buzz. You will have to speak pretty loud as the music is played a pretty high volume.

This is new favorite place in Dallas.
