(Re-review 1/19/17, original score 3.78)

I've stopped into Pub 819 a couple of times for a bite and a beer as I work nearby. The atmosphere tries to be warm and intimate, but the dozen or so TVs stand in the way of that. The service has always been friendly, and prompt. However, nearly every time I've stopped in I've overheard someone on their staff providing incorrect information to a customer regarding beer or whisky (they claim to be a whisky bar).

The beer selection is solid, but not spectacular. They seem to stick more on the safe side of things when choosing taps, but I have always found something worth drinking. I do, however, have questions about how long it takes them to go through some of their kegs. On my latest visit they still had a keg of Harriet Dark Abbey on tap. Harriet closed its doors two months prior to my visit, and hadn't brewed any beer for at least a month before it closed. That keg was at least three months old. I sure hope it hadn't been tapped that whole time.

The food at Pub 819 is forgettably suburban. It is inoffensive, bland, and unfrightening. A picky child could look at the menu, and agree to eat the majority of it. Moreover, everything on the menu is overpriced.

Overall, I wish Pub 819 would give me more to like about it as it would be nice to have a place near my work to sit and have a beer while waiting for rush hour to die down.
