This place is packed all the time it seems. The food is good, the beers are very good. I was impressed with the service. Even though they were packed with a wait, the staff was efficient and kept things moving. The crowd is very diverse from government employees to college kids to families.

Fun bar right downtown. TONS of beer options, and a surprisingly good selection of wines by the glass (some local - and yes, Virginia does produce a few good wines). A good St. Patty's Day crowd, a good mix of ages but a fairly young crowd around the bar. They had a Bagpipe band come in and march thru the bar which was really cool. Bartenders were very attentive even though they were fairly busy...bar was well staffed. Looked like typical bar food coming out, but we did not eat here.

My fiance' and I went here for a drink and light food.We both tried their wheat beer and their $2.00 hamburgers, it's there Monday special, and it was great! The waitress was wonderful and the visit overall was fun!

I love that I can pick through a menu with over 200 types of beer. There is something for everyone. The food is also delicious. I suggest burger nights for the best value. They have these on Mondays and burgers (when I was last there) were only $2 for REAL burgers.

The staff is great and really helpful in picking out new beers to try. The only downside is the price. But, for a once-in-a-while treat, do not miss it. LOVE visiting.

Mondays are burger night, but if you get the special they only come one way - cooked until you can't tell it's meet.
