“Solid beer selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

I'm not sure that I've ever been to a restaurant with as extensive a beer menu as this place. However, the ambiance was more like an upscale and trendy restaurant, not the sort of place you would generally associate with having 50+ beers on tap.

I had an Asian tuna salad here, and let me say WHOA, it took me back to my memory of eating poke in Oahu!

“Overpriced, loud and smelly”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

We waited an hour for a loud, overpriced and mediocre food. Go to Javier's! My drink tasted funny and it was vodka and soda. Lots of beer on tap though!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

Over-rated, Over-Priced, Over-Modulated (noise), Overcrowed. If any of those things sound good to you then come on down, because this is your kind of place. If you are like most folks who work too hard for their money then you have to think long and hard before venturing to this location. The Food was OK but nothing great and overpriced to boot, the only time I got to a normal noise level was outside. This place was so over crowded that the standard wait on a WEDNESDAY night was 30 minutes (can you image the wait time on a weekend??!!!) all in all there are way too many good restaurants in the Spectrum for you to waste your money here. On a positive note this place has almost every single beer on the planet on tap (it is sometime to see).

“Loud and entertaining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

This is obviously the place to go for beer tasting; you get 2 free tastes, so don't waste them. If you have never been to a Yardhouse, there are a multitude of beer taps in a sports venue. The food is good and atmosphere is loud but not so loud that you can't talk, just a tad noisy.
It was a fun and entertaining evening with a personable wait staff; they seem to shift around for breaks, so you may end up with a couple of different waiters/ waitresses but that is okay because they seem to keep their energy up and provide good service.
Also, keep a menu because the beer selection needs some analysis if you are serious about tasting certain genres of beer. Recommend the Belgium style abby, that has a smooth after taste.
