I've been to a couple other Humperdink's, but this is the one that I frequent the most often. They have a sweet happy hour (1 or 2 dollar 18 ounce drafts from 4-7: I believe I've paid both prices). They also discount their appetizers for happy hour--50% off, plus $1--not bad. The atmosphere is like the other Humperdink's--lots of dark wood, immaculately clean, that huge bar featuring all kinds of other liquors and beers, and a poorly trained wait staff on the subtleties of the beers. Heck, they don't know anything about the beers...However, the beer isn't bad. The IPA is decent and quite hoppy, the hefe is definitely fermented with a Bavarian yeast strain and the seasonals can be pretty good. The food is better than average, from what I’ve had of it. Upscale American, like most brewpubs seem to offer. I’d put it above Two Rows, but below a serious restaurant's fare (serious referring to chef-prepared: this is no Spago). The dining room appears to be family frienfly, though I've only ever sat in the bar area, which doesn't cater well to any but the most cigarette-tolerant children (like most bars).

All in all an OK experience. It would be nice if the wait staff knew ANYTHING about the beer (though they are quite proficient otherwise) and it would be nice if the beers were a little maltier and characterful. Again, it’s an OK place, but it’s not great.

Your typical big name, big place kinda place to go for sports, food, and limited beer. However, this particular Humperdinks has a special place in my heart- here is where I saw Vince Young defeat USC- still some of the better beer and sports I've ever enjoyed. Yea, I'll take another tower.

I stopped by Humperdinks Restaurant last summer for lunch & a decent pint. I was staying at a nearby hotel and decided to give the place a try even though I'd read the other reviews which reported that had stopped serving their own Big Horn brews. The atmosphere here is your typical big sports bar standard with lots of TV's running ESPN. The beer selection was pretty much macro-swill, but at least they had some NB Fat Tire & SNPA on draught which help wash down the very good Kobe beef burger & Humps chips. The bar service was fast & friendly, but not overly attentive. Good place to catch a game and some grub, but not much to offer a Beer Advocate.

CHEERS! Beertracker

*Note: The Big Horn Brewery locations include Arlington, Greenville, & NW HWY which offer growlers & kegs to go.

Alas, I arrived after they announced that they've stopped brewing their own beers. This sucked major wind, so to speak. Food was ok, nothing bad, nothing great. Premises are definitely two separate atmospheres: family restaurant and sports bar/meat market depending upon the hour. Fast and friendly service. The staff was greatly disappointed that they stopped brewing also. Too smoky in the sports bar area. Standard BMC choices without their own beers available. Though in this part of Texas, apparently Shiner Bock and Fat Tire are considered delicacies. Go figure.

A decent restaurant/brewery. Home of "Big Horn Brewery". The big silver tanks are in view of the seating area. Their bar is phenomanal. Floor to ceiling, about 40 feet high, with rolling ladders that the bartenders use to climb to lofty heights to retrieve bottles of liquor. Looks like a "library of alcohol". Billed as the "Tallest bar in Addison." Their beer selection is less impressive, but they do have some good seasonal brews. I recommend the "Texas Brunette" and their IPA. The food is average, as is the service. I've only been there 4 or 5 times, and the service seems to be a roll of the dice - sometimes you get good service, sometimes not. They also have a decent happy hour, with large (22oz, I think) mugs for $1.75, for every beer they have. A nice place to go for dinner or drinks after work. Overall, I recommend this place over most in the immediate area.

A pretty typical American brewpub - maybe a little on the upscale side. This one is billed as "Addison's Tallest Bar". They have a rolling ladder that one of the bartenders uses to climb up to the second level of the bar and drop bottles of alcohol to the bartender below - an entertaining little show.

The atmosphere is fairly upscale. There are several TVs around the bar area and a couple more in the restaurant area. They have recently added a couple pool tables (pay by the hour) and a shuffleboard table which definitely adds to the entertainment aspect.

The food is good (avoid the potato skins), but some if it is a little overpriced. They have the standard beer selection with a rotating seasonal. The hefe is good and most of their seasonals are good, but I don't really care for any of the others.

Service seems to be a mixed bag. Sometimes you get really good service, and sometimes you wonder if your waitress went on strike.

Overall a good place to go. I try to make it at least a couple Sundays during football season.
