Came here for a few drinks after dinner one with a small group from work. They have a really good beer selection, especially their high gravity brews, that is really unmatched in the area. Seating can be limited especially during busy times.

For me an ultimate comfort meal... Ramen noodle surprise and micro-brews! They had about 25 different microbrews on tap. Unfortunately , The brew list on the chalkboards doesn't seem to be updated regularly, so some of the beers listed weren't available. I also noticed the...More

Suttree's, near the movie theater on Gay Street, is styled in the old-timey taverns of the 19th century. Although they have a very limited menu (I was given a one page menu), the food is definitely of good quality, especially the popular 1/4-pound, all-beef hot...More
