What do you want more? Good food, love music, great beer for a decent price. Service was perfect! Had the steak dinner and was really tasty. They have beer tasting plates with 4 different local beers. I really recommend this bar for dinner and drinks.

Funky spot with good food and cold beverages. They had a DJ spinning tunes that made for a nice vibe. Friendly staff.

Went here with my coworkers during a business trip. The happy hour menu is great, apps for $5 and lots of beer selection from $3/$4. After happy hour ended, ordered a few more drinks, prices were still very reasonable! Also ordered the sliders, decent appetizer. Great bar, lots of options. I would go again when visiting Houston.

My daughter and I ate dinner here, and the food was surprisingly good. Prices were reasonable as well. Much more than basic bar food, the menu included several interesting salads and pizzas, as well as main courses. My halibut was quite good.

We arrived into town around 7:15, were looking for a bite to eat, so walked over from our hotel. I'm not sure what this place is supposed to be - there was a little stage in the corner for a guitar player, the seating was picnic tables and metal chairs. The bar looked to have a so-so beer selection, not... More

The start-ups had excellent presentation and even better taste (I recommend the charcuterie starter as well as the hummus)!

I stopped by for brunch on a Sunday at around 9:30 am. The server was very nice but everything took a while. Make sure you go when you have time to wait. I ordered a mimosa and waffle. The waffle was ok. I felt it looked better than it tasted. I'm glad I tried it out but may just try... More

I tried this place out for lunch with a friend today. The plantain chips were a nice appetizer, and they have good craft beers to choose from, including flights if you can't decide on one to try. I got the kale salad with chicken for my meal. I would have liked to see more ingredients on the salad, but it... More
