Stopped in on a Friday night shortly before 6 and the place was crowded, but not packed. Tables and a long bar are available for inside seating, with a large covered patio for outside seating.

Large tap selection. Even as large as it is, they seem to emphasize quality over quantity. Many good selections, with Dales, Westbrook, Rogue all well represented. Large selection of bottles and micro cans, too.

Food was extremely good. BBQ sandwich was excellent, as was my friends fish sandwich. Sides are nice too. Red beans and rice was quite tasty. Nachos coming out of the kitchen looked very good and quite large.

Service was attentive. They have a lot of staff on now, but maybe could have used one more bartender. Lots of quality waitstaff, though, knowledgeable about their products.

Price was good for what we got. Almost a bargain, really. I'd go back in a heartbeat, and will.

Finally got the chance to stop in here last Sunday along with my doppelganger after trying to get my netbook fixed after a portion of my Dry Hopped Citrus Ninja Exchange killed it. :/ Luckily with us being in the Bible Belt they serve alcohol on Sunday! w00t! This location is down near the baseball field, almost directly across the street from Liberty. There is limited parking in the area, so be prepared for that as you might have to walk to get here if you don't feel comfortable parking in a church's lot and pray that you don't get towed. Upon entering you definitely get a good vibe here. We were greeted immediately by the hostess who was actually quite cute (big plus). There is definitely a industrial and workshop feel going on here. Lots of raw steel with wood floors. PLENTY of seating all around, whether it be the bar, high top tables, regular tables, or patio seating; they have it all. Pick your poison! We decided to take a seat at the bar. Looking over the beer menu, they have quite a nice tap selection going on here. While I was there I had St. Louis Fond Tradition Geuze (it was on special for $4!), St. Bernardus Abt 12 (kicked on my glass so it was free), and Westbrook Pacific Jade Rye Pale Ale. There were quite a few other brews on that I wanted to try but just didn't have the time. Quite a few Stones could had here including VE11.11.11. This makes sense as I can see this place having a nice Stone-esque vibe to it. Our bartender (Ashley) was very knowledgable about all the beers that were on draft and actually enjoyed seeing two guys who came in and were drinking things that most people were afraid to even try. The food here was pretty good as well. I ended up with the Philly Brisket Wrap with Mac n Cheese. The wrap was okay, but the mac n cheese was awesome. I will definitely be visiting this location the next time I'm over on that side of town. I suggest you do the same if you are in town.
