The location is perfect, right on the street with an open air balcony. Drank an Austin craft beer, Pecan Porter, very good! We ordered the fried stuffed avacado(1 of their best dishes) & it was delicious! Reasonable prices!

Amazing Fish Tacos. Great beer. If the game is on this is the place to go. All other food is great. Perfect SOCO area place.

We came here on the recommendation of a server who promised they had craft beer and they did! We were in luck. They had about 25 taps each with a delicious beer. I wished they would have offered smaller pours than just pints though. They also have some games to play, shuffleboard, darts, etc. And they are pet friendly! Many... More

Watched the Superbowl at this bar and it was freezing cold sitting outside. The bars have lava heating lamps to warm us up to keep us from freezing. Wide variety of beer. The server was very friendly. I had hand battered fish and chips which was good. highly recommend this place for sports game viewing parties.

Parking can be a pain, I was there fairly early on Saturday evening and there was nothing available on Congress Ave. I luckily found a spot right behind... More
