This is a great spot for anyone of all beer tastes. There are so many beers on tap and in the cooler that you can find one no matter what style you prefer. Excellent food and good atmosphere, with a knowledgeable wait/bar staff to help you make decisions if the decisions get too overwhelming.

Went here for a few beers and food, the variety of beer on tap here will enable anyone to find something to their liking. The food was served fast and it was very tasty. The place is huge but not very noisy, staff is friendly and observant.

Great selection of craft beers. Eclectic decor. I enjoy sitting outside with the exception of the all too frequent panhandlers.

We stayed nearby and happened upon this place. So glad we did. It has a great atmosphere and is clearly loved by locals. The food was tasty pub fare and the beer selection is extensive - truly something for everyone. It's the sort of place you wish you could become a regular at. There are dart boards at the back.

We were trying to find somewhere to eat in downtown Houston over the weekend. It seems like everything closes by 5 o'clock so the choices were limited. We found this place and it was packed but we found a table outside and grabbed that. I ordered the grilled cheese which came with tomato and bacon which I didn't notice on... More

This is the spot for craft beer lovers as the choices are incredible. You can join their club and work your way towards 200 different beers and a plate on the wall, or just enjoy selections ranging from cheap to you better savor it because it cost an arm and a leg. I had the make your own pizza with... More

Pizza was amazing, salad was amazing. There are one hundred different beers to taste and sample, they even do "flights" of beers so people can taste whatever they want. It was a fun experience pre game and is walking distance from Minuit Maid Park so it was an ideal stop before the game. You can tell it is also a... More
