Great bar with lots of atmosphere. Great beer selection. Laid back. I hear they serve fish and chips and will have to try them next time in SF.

Walked in in the middle of a cussing contest! Hilarious! The place was packed. Crowd ages vary from 21 to 50. Great beer selection, heavy on imports from the UK, of course. 2 floors, stage. Had a good time!
