A friend and I went there and there was a wait to get in. Being the new hot spot in town we waited 20 minutes to get in to the bar. The wait for a table was over a hour. Got to the bar and saw they had tons and tons of beer. My friend and I got up to the bar and where going to sample some new brews we have never tasted. After another thirty minutes of waiting to order, the bar tender did not even acknowledge us. So we said screw this place and we went across the street to Shakespeare's. Too bad, I really want to like this place but way too busy to enjoy it. I should rate it lower. But they have the best selection of beers in Kalamazoo just be prepared to wait and wait and wait.
