This is a lively bar located right in the middle of downtown Houston. All the walls are covered with thousands of dishes. They have lots of different beers, and they offer tasty typical American dishes such as chicken wings, quesadillas, sandwiches and salads. I loved their nachos and their pretzels. While we were there, they had like a trivia contest... More

Easy to get to from anywhere downtown - fun decor and an amazing amount of beers. They even have two dart boards! I had a "fire sale" Chardonnay and it was good. We saw the menu on line with quesadillas but the paper menu didn't show it so we asked and the server brought them out. They were okay, not... More

The walls were covered with plates. Once someone consumes a certain number of beers, I believe it was 300, they get a plate on the wall with their name. Someone told me you are limited to 3 beers a night toward the 300. The group I was with enjoyed it immensely as they had lots of craft beers and beer... More

Overall an excellent place to grab a pint. Almost 100 different craft beers on tap, and nearly 200 different bottles/cans. All of which are reasonably priced. The staff and service was great. Offered suggestions, samplers, etc. I would highly recommend.

I am a local Houstonian, and this place is nothing special. The beer selection yes, is great, but that's about it. The food is plain pub grub and not even good pub grub. Had the queso and it was runny and cold. Service is also very slow even when they weren't busy on a week night. Everything we had was... More
