We love the beer selection here, which is honestly amazing. But we ate here for Sunday brunch. We ordered beer, but we couldn't get a tea because the spout or handle was broken. Then the iPad to see the beers was broken. Then the lock...More

Stopped on the way to USC Women's Basketball game. Great Pumpkin Ale, onion rings, and sliders. Tavern taters are a MUST. Fabulous service from bartender Katie as she recommended ale, food, and found our football game! Great price and service.

Great time to stop at a WoB. Typical pub fair but the beer selection is out of this world. I had the chipolte chicken sandwich - it was good, but lacked the "zing" I was expecting with chipolte. Other than that, great visit!

Great place to gather with friends, especially to watch a game. Absolutely best selection of beer anywhere. Food selection was good as well, but not the type of place you would go to for a sit down romantic dinner either! It gets a little loud...More

If you're into domestics, this place isn't for you. If you like better quality, craft beers then there is no rival in Columbia. While WoB doesn't trot around scantily clad young women to entice patrons to come in, they simply best everyone by having a...More
