Stopped by here due to a lack of consensus on where to eat dinner after work.

Atmosphere - A big, sprawling Fox and Hound location with ample seating all over the place. Pretty standard FnH establishment outside of the size.

Quality - Solid quality food, but subpar quality of beers to drink.

Service - The original waitress we had was super slow. However, without us complaining, the manager stepped in and sped everything up. We received much better service once the manager took over.

Selection - They have a good number of beers to choose from, but by BA standards, it's average at best. The sheer quantity (20+) is the only thing that keeps this rating as Okay. The beer selection here is nothing like the one back near my home in Aurora, IL.

Food - Solid bar food. Not bad, but not exciting.

Overall I wouldn't bother coming here again. Standard FnH food menu, but subpar beer quality.

I love to go here during 2 dollar tuesdays. That is the best deal around and they have a very nice selection. I love to come here and grab a pint or 10 and play darts and pool. They do a pretty good job with their quality of beers, though sometimes I feel the kegging system isnt clean. I love the fact that this place is HUGE and you can get away from the crowds and just hang with friends and talk. The service here is very good too. The bartenders are fast, friendly and know how to pour a good pint. The food is the bad point of this place. We bought a pizza that tasted like cardboard, the chips and hot sauce was okay, but cant expect much from a bar. Overall I really enjoy this place. It is much better than the other Fort Worth location.

A decent "pub". More American than British, in my opinion. A nice place to have dinner, watch sports, or play billiards or darts. The beer selection is not as great as I would like, though they do have some decent stuff on tap, including Newcastle Brown. I am not a big fan of Guinness. They do have some bottled beers, but I didn't explore that selection much. The food is the normal fare - burgers and the like. The service is quite good, and the staff strives to keep one happy. A nice place to take a buddy or two out for a beer. The pricing is also moderate. Not a bad place.

Merely one of a chain of "British-style" pubs (meaning, not very British at all) across the DFW area. Not as good as an authentic pub but better than your average yuppie bistro.

Yuppie would be a good description of this place but don't let that stop you. A good place to watch the game with large televisions on all sides and this downtown location is big enough to always be accommodating, even on weekends. Plenty of pool tables, darts, food is above average, private rooms for parties if you reserve them. Bar area is huge and seating has rarely been a problem.

The beer selection is not shockingly good but better than most: about 24 taps, standards plus lites plus some good stuff like Guinness, Paulaner and Newcastle. There are 40-50 more in bottles, although I've noticed they often run out of what I'm in the mood for. Maybe it's just me.

A second bar is upstairs with the same selections, along with the pool tables and a balcony overlooking the bar below. Service is always good and very nice to look at, as is the clientele on certain evenings.
