Our waitress was very attentive. We didn't have to wait for anything. The food was great and the beer menu was impressive. Would definitely come here again.

Outstanding staff, v knowledgable and could describe the beers in detail and their recommendations were good. I don't particularly like American beer, however there are a few European beers to choose from. Food simple but good value and not insane quantities! Overall v recommended.

Dropped by for a business lunch - was a fun place that if you like beer (sampling the literally hundreds of options) is a must go to place when in Houston. There's even some award if you reach the tasted 200 different varieties level (but mercifully they have a six bottle per person per trip limit!). The food is pretty... More

Good place to get a beer. They have a large selection of beers, bottles and on tap. We didn't go here for the food. The food is ok at best. I've had better at some minor league ballparks. The place was crowded. You seat yourself. We received good service and the food came out pretty fast. Great visit overall.

Really nice and really big bar. Staff really nice as were the other clients. Seems to be used primarily for office workers. Food good and drinks reasonably priced.

Our favorite bar. If you love trying new beer, this is the place to go. Hundreds of brews to choose from and the food is great, too! And the waitresses are super friendly and always helpful.

They have TVs showing games, but its not really a sports bar. The food was good (pizza was very tasty) and the local beer selections were fun to try (they offer beer flights).
