Casual place with lots of beers. BUT: For a place that specializes on beer, pouring Weizen Beer into a regular glass is a sin :-( , therefore I have to deduct one point. They must know better!

I used to like this place, but the service and food quality was not even mediocre during my last two visits. The beer choices is all there is here. There's much better food and tastier cold beer options close by!

This restaurant is doing something incredibly right. There is *always* a crowd. We opted to sit outside on a Saturday afternoon in the summer heat ... and had to wait 20-30min. Inside wait was longer. I'm not a fan of the pizza here - but do love their burgers and sandwiches. And just how many varieties of beer do they... More

Good Beer, good meals, outside seating- dog friendly! What more can be said. Just off of I-10, a great place to stop and Half Price Books is just next door.

Over 100 beer choices with many locally brewed favorites. This is one popular place, with great outdoor sitting. The German food is excellent. Great place to unwind, or just visit with friends. Additional parking is right past the restaurant in the movie theater lot.

I have been here three times, in groups and alone. The servers (female) are friendly though not necessarily fast. The written menu of beers has about 30 and the servers are knowledgeable about these. The food is pub-style; I had no full meals. While there have been good crowds it has never felt crowded and there is outdoor seating. There... More

Stopping by for lunch with a friend, I ordered their shepherd's pie. It tasted good but proved entirely too greasy. I was a bit afraid I'd have to run home afterward, so I ate it slowly, but I had no problems. The service was average but the decor was really interesting. I stopped by a few weeks before, though, for... More

What a great pub! My buddy works close by and took us here & we weren't disappointed. Amazing beer selection (200+) and seriously great bar food. Try the cheese fries. A fabulous time was had by one and all here!

Amazing beer selection. You come for the huge draught beer selection but the food is great as well. German food or burgers but the salads are solid as well. Did I mention over 100 different beers!

We just had drinks here and the place was very cool. Serious beer establishment with a great energy. Casual and comfortable with an efficient wait staff.
