Without knowing anything about this spot, I made a visit just cause of its inclusion on BA. As I drive up to the outdoor shopping mall, with generic chain stores and restaurants I was not expecting much. I walk inside, and am even less encouraged. Seems sterile, and generic. The place was packed and loud. Though several seats available at the bar, with a few dinning areas and a patio. The light fixtures, bars stools, and tables all look like they were bought at Pier One. A few TV's turned to sports, that are surprisingly unobtrusive.

Anyway, getting past that I take a seat at the bar. They hand me a small piece of paper with the beer selection. 8 taps, 7 are beer and one is a wine. I really like the small selection. Schlafly Coffee Stout, Prairie Ale, Marshall Pavillion Pilsner, and St. Bernardus being the big hitters when I visited. The taps always rotate, with clean lines, correct temps and glassware. A slightly more extensive bottle selection.

Service is spot on. The bartenders are all on top of everything. Very knowledgeable and friendly. The girl behind the bar is a sweetheart. Food is excellent. Mostly burgers, but really well made. The burgers come out slightly more than medium. Still really juicy and flavorful. Lots of different options to choose as well. They are not just a burgers and beer spot. Really good cocktails, and even shakes. A good place to stop for lunch, even if you can't have a drink at that time.

There is another location in Little Rock as well, which I need to try one of these days. The bartender here said the other location is bigger with more selection and cocktails. Even with the generic feel here, this is a most visit for the area, so I assume the other location is as well.
