YMMV on the friendliness of the staff, but my wife and I had a great conversation with the bartender that made this stop memorable. We talked about several American breweries that we've been too or are near our home towns, such as Firestone, Coronado, Modern...More

Great beer, reasonable food (but you go for the beer rather than for the food) and Shimo- is still cool as. Food menu is in Japanese only, but the beer menu is in English/Romaji for those who are taking notes.
