I used to frequent this establishment when it was Thorobred's and have occasionally been back since its been V50. The food is pretty good. The beer selection is fine, although I prefer wine and feel that the place could benefit from a better selection.
During my last visit, my server was prompt and helpful and was able to recommend beers using verbiage I could understand. Not pretentious at all. The appetizers were okay for the price but not as good as some other up and coming beer and wine bars.
All in all, I'd go back and I probably will go back but it's not my first choice. They need to up the ante or they'll end up like their sister, Vintage 51, in South Riding.
