A - A little commercial and bright, but tons of room.

Q - Very good beers on tap, and a pretty solid bottle list, including bombers. Craft from around the nation. Nothing particularly rare, but high quality stuff all around.

Ser - Service was very friendly, courteous, and quick. Absolutely no complaints.

Sel - See "Quality." Pretty good variety represented, and a nice amount of beer overall, if you include bombers.

F - Great burgers as always, and their fries and truffle fries are excellent!

A great place to eat and drink, family friendly, with reasonable prices. If you want a good beer, you're probably not going to be disappointed. I like the Plan B in Hartford a little more for overall atmosphere, but this is a solid place to stop and eat.

I've been to Plan B several times since it opened, but I never reviewed it. The restaurant is conveniently located in the Basketball Hall of Fame area, so there is plenty of parking. Upon entering, there is a bar area to your right, dining area to your left, and some back tables. The general atmosphere was family-friendly in addition to a social place to go after work or with friends. Service is quite nice. Every time I have been there, the wait staff has been attentive to our needs and have come by frequently to see how we are doing.

The beer selection is quite good here. Although the restaurant has a lot of spirits and other drinks, I have seen the bottle and tap list to be quite varied. For tonight's dinner, I had Jack Abby's Hoponius Union. The food is also quite good at this place. Although its known for its burger, I have had dinner plates, like the southwest stuffed chicken, which were quite good. For dinner tonight, I had the blue cheese burger, which was rich in barbecue sauce and caramelized onions.

Overall, I would recommend this establishment to most friends for both food and beer selection,
