3.9/5  rDev n/a
vibe: 4 | quality: 3.75 | service: 4.25 | selection: 3.75 | food: 3.75

Visited numerous times over the past six years. Half price burger night almost once a week.

Not the broadest or deepest beer list in Arlington, but a sports pub with above average beer, kid friendly menu and atmosphere, belgian pub menu, and close to my house, make it a viable option when I need a craft beer (which is ALWAYS a priority if the family eats out).

A - An open, clean, bright, albeit small, sports bar/pub. When all the seats are full it can get a bit crowded.

Q - No complaints about the quality of the beer, though some of the European bottles can get a little dated (but is this the bar's fault). Chimay is served in the correct glass.

S - Service is good. Wait staff is friendly. Typically amenable to tweekig a dish to accomodate a child or other need.

S - There are many bars in Arlington and the surrounding area with much better selections, but there are also many more places without Chimay (on tap), Celebrator and the seasonal SN. The selection is not deep, so if you are looking for a new beer everytime you visit you be disappointed. They could attrach me even more often if they had a rotating tap not dedicated to a particular brewer.

F - For me it can be hit and miss. But the burgers are real good and they are half price on Mondays.

V - The beer is a bit on the pricey side (thus the rating) but the food is reasonably priced.
