Great hamburger

I had the Texas burger and very much enjoyed it. The hamburger was juice with plenty of cheddar cheese and bacon. The fries could have been better. Seemed like they had been sitting out a while before being served to me.

Really fun decor inside but the beer list is pretty lame. They do have some pretty huge red bull drinks though if that is what you're into.

This is a must stop if you are looking for a fun atmosphere and cheap drinks. There are two floors to the restaurant each with a full bar. Drinking in the city can add up, but the Pour House gives you big portions and large drinks for a fair price. I would definitely go back.

Brunch, lunch, or dinner, this place rocks as the go-to spot for folks on a tight budget. The food is good, and their beef jerky bloody mary is awesome! Its a fun bar with great atmosphere & yummy drinks & dishes. Dive bar, maybe, but just go, relax & enjoy!

We stopped in while waiting to meet people, and this was a great choice!! We found a seat right at the bar, even though the place was full! They were serving Sunday brunch which looked like huge portions. The service was a little disorganized and we had 3 different people help us, but overall I will definitely return! Plus I... More

This bar and grill offers decent food and a great selection of beer. The upstairs frequently gets crowded, but the bartenders are polite and the giant beers are a huge plus.

Came here for a down and dirty burger. I got one. It was okay. The space was like a classic bar meets frat house, with wood booth seating with all kinds of distracting decor. Plenty of beer on tap...but it just didn't taste right. I ordered a smothered mushroom burger and subbed the fries with mash. Bad move. The mash... More

After reading the breakfast reviews, we decided to go to the Pour House for breakfast, and we thought the reviews were far too generous. We both ordered the French Toast, and both of us were disappointed by it. The food was only luke warm, and the egg the bread was dipped in pulled a part from the bread. The French... More

Our hotel recommended The Pour House for breakfast on our last morning and what a great recommend that was! We had friendly service and a very reasonably priced, huge, breakfast! The Piggy had everything and more piled on the plate and it was delicious and certainly set us up for the day. The only downside is that we found it... More
