This is an odd little place. It's an old house right across the street from UTA, looks like it might have been a frat house back in the day. It being an old house makes it have a very odd layout, which can be nice and challenging. I normally park in the back and enter from there, and depending on where I sit, I've gone a good while till I get noticed, one time we had to go flag someone down to let them know we were there. The staff, while being friendly, can also disappear at times. The food is good, we really enjoyed the wings, but the pizza is good too, not as good as Mellow Mushroom, but better than most everything else in the area.

Decent beer selection, nice size for Arlington, and normally a few craft offerings I've yet to try, and always a few local offerings. This isn't Dallas or Fort Worth, so don't expect Gingerman or Common Table selection, and you won't be disappointed.

Stopped in here for dinner w bg and jk on 17 Dec 2011.

A beer bar and pizza place in a renovated old house (guessing 1930s vintage). Lots of potential. Didn't quite live up to it.

We parked in the rear and entered through the back and made our way to the front to sit in the bar section. Initial service was a bit slow. About 18 beers on tap, but they were out of three or four. 12 beers in bottles. Between the three of us we ordered a Brooklyn BCS, Firemans 4 and Magic Hat something or other. For food we ordered the large Maverick. Beer was good, pizza serviceable. We got the regular crust, when it arrived was not nearly as hot as the server warned or we expected.

The night was dominated by the group of loudmouths sitting at the bar. Most annoying, loud boorish conversation and several out of control children that the parents neglected to discipline. As we were leaving we were semi apologized to by the group.

Overall, not a bad place to stop if you are in the area but no reason to go out of your way here.

Old School Pizza and Suds is a very nice, chill place to go grab a craft beer and a tasty pizza.

The Atmosphere is not bad, but not great. It is very small, so just a few people and it is crowded. This was an old house or something and has different rooms with tables. They also have a place at the bar to sit, which is nice so you can order directly to the bar tender.

The service was okay. The girl we had talked like a robot and took a while to get ahold of. The people there were very nice though and helpful.

They have a lot of craft beers on draft. I got a Dogfish Head 60 Min, a Deschutes Black Butte and a Brooklyn Brown Ale. They also had Stone IPA, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and tons of other popular craft brews.

The food here is also pretty darn good. I got a calzone and I wasnt expecting it to be this good. Their pizza is also very delicious and they run a great deal for lunch where you can get a personal pizza and beer for around 8-9 dollars.

The prices arent cheap by any means, but going to happy hour saves a little money. The calzone I got was only 6 dollars and I couldnt finish it.
