Went here for dinner. I was impressed by the taplist, a good selection, the freshness on one of the beers made me think that they don't turn over as quickly as they could but the others were fresh. Maybe it will pick up as the students return.

I ordered a burger rare, but it was pretty raw, ate it anyways but cringed a few times. The server was weird, she talked like she was fucking pretending to be in a hairy potter novel... get a life.

This place is also expensive as hell, totally not what you will be expecting price-wise.

The atmosphere is decent, we sat at the patio.

Came here for New Years Eve with my wife. I was looking forward to trying their usual menu, but unfortunately they only had a special menu for dinner. They had stuff on the menu that wasn't what I would normally eat, but man it was good.

The craft beer selection was pretty good, somewhere around 15 on tap with the likes of Founders, Figure Eight, Rogue and North Coast. I was told they try to rotate often and will be trying to bring more local brews in.

It did seem like it was trying to be a little more high end than our area really tends to be, however I didn't feel uncomfortable, the wait staff was nice and the cost was reasonable. Check it out if you are in the area!

I stopped here the other night with a couple friends.

a- this place had a old school feel to it. There was a tin ceiling and white marble bar top. They got what they were going for although I think it was a little much once I started to think about it.

q- Everything was served in the right glass and the beers seemed to be fresh and nothing too old gets put on tap here. The glasses were cleaned and well I would go as far to say beer clean actually.

s- The only downfall to this place that I've seen so far. My bartender was cocky and a know it all without the knowledge. He told me once that something I said was wrong and just really rubbed me the wrong way.

s- Selection was good with about 19 different craft choices. No BMC on tap at all which was nice. Local breweries were catered to along with a couple very respectable USA and Europe breweries.

Overall a perfect fit into the area for craft beer. Plus Belmont on South Bend Ave. is right up the road. Do yourself a favor and try it out when you are by Notre Dame.
