Great vibe

The pub was bustling despite the cold weather and the service didn't suffer because of it. Great pub style food with generous helpings, not to mention the very wide variety of beers. A must visit in Wichita..

The pub food is alright. Not bad, just kinda typical. The microbrews made here though are awesome! A great spot to eat or drink.

We went here one Saturday with my parents for lunch and to have a few beers. I've been here a few times and always love it. My wife had the grilled cheese and cream of mushroom soup, I had a pastrami sandwich and sausage soup. The soup was ok, the pastrami was awesome. We all shared an order of sweet... More

I am not a bar person, yet, my friend is, so sure I'll go. He wanted a Rolling Rock (we're east coast people) & I asked for Corona so he got a Budweiser & I got a Medeno. I had 2 beers as I was going to church right after. We would tell the floor waitress what we wanted &... More

Five of us had a meal with shared appetizers for $140 (including tip). The beer list was very good with plenty of local varieties. All the food was very tasty with generous portions.

Attended my first time there on a Wednesday with a weekly lunch group. At 11:30 am the parking, seating availability, food, beer choices and food quality were adequate. The beer was expensive. I tried the fried pickles I read were available in another review; but would not recommend them especially for the $7 cost. They were shaped like chicken nuggets... More

Fantastic choice of beer, and good bar food. Not a huge range of veggie choices for our group, but what there was tasted great.

Stopped by with 2 other couples for lunch. Classic metal antique ceilings and original vintage brick walls. Really enjoyed the brat burger with sauerkraut on a pretzel bun - excellent. My wife had a very generous Reuben. Loved their homemade chips.

Love this place. When people visit, this is definitely a stop before they leave. The Salmon burger and Black Bean Burger are my favorites.

Dinner and drinks on an incredibly busy night before a concert. Drinks were great...food was great...service was a little hit and miss BUT they were slammed with business so I really couldn't ask for much more. I look forward to returning to sample other beers and house cocktails
