Good pub all things considered

First off, this is really a brewery, and more a typical brewery not something made as a tourist spot. That being said the beer is stellar, and soooo affordable. You can get $3 half pints of almost everything they have on tap. Most pints are $5. Its a great place to go and taste a wide variety of... read more

Stopped in on a warm September day. the bar had no air conditioning. windows and doors were opened. There were tons of flies and Fruit flies. The beers tasted great, but you had to swat the bugs away to keep them out of you drink. I would go back but would be middle of winter.

This place has a big variety of beer so u definitely have smth to choose from. The atmosphere is nothing special - drunks, people with a newborn baby, weird. The service could be much better. We came here in the evening and sat at the table and had to service. Any time we needed a beer we had to go... More

Kind of seems like the owner just gave up. The beer is great, the atmosphere is really lacking. Witnessed (and basically had to save) a female bartender from a drunk, angry old man harassing and threatening her. There is so much potential for this to be a great place, but it falls short. But still, I'm here practically every week.

Don't expect a Guinness here, but they have a lot of interesting stuff on tap or cask. This place, and Kipling's next door is a great 1-2 stop for anybody on a pub crawl in the winter, where you don't want to walk far.

I have been visiting McNeill's since 1999. My first time there was my first introduction to fresh beer served from cask via a beer engine. It was an enlightening experience. Over the years the quality has come and gone, and happily, come again. Our last visit (last week) proved to be one of the highlights of our trip. We visited... More

This is a can't miss if you're a beer-lover. They brew so many different, fantastic varieties, and the selection is always changing. The even have some cask beers. The bartenders are very knowledgeable, and happy to tell you all about what makes each brew distinct and delicious. Long tables encourage interaction between groups. I love this place!

Ray McNeill brews the very best beers, usually 15 or more on tap at any one time. Wide variety of beer styles: stouts, IPAs, German style Altbier, Kolsch, Maibock, a great bitter. But the service is awful. The bar rarely opens on time, and is dirty until someone decides to clean it, while customers are waiting for their beer. It... More

The beer is nothing short of excellent! This is a pub/brewery. Hand crafted beer at its best! Go and enjoy something different, something fresh and something extremely tasteful!!

I'm not a beer fan but they are open a lot of hours and offer a wide array of simple, tasty, bar food; nachos, wraps, burritos, etc. I enjoyed just sitting and having a drink but was disappointed that the only big sunny window was filthy with pesty flies enjoying the sun too. Good clean bathrooms, bar games and tables... More
