Decent bar food. The burgers are good, but it wouldn't be in my top 3 for Gainesville. Buns were fluffy and held together, patties were juicy albeit lacked some seasoning and slightly overcooked, toppings were fresh, fries were crispy. Service was friendly and food was ready on time. Prices were reasonable for Gainesville. It seems like their chili is pretty well known, so we'll have to come back to try that.

Awesome bar and great food! And the beer shoppe next door is incredible!

What a great place!!! The decor is great and the selection/quality of the drinks (especially beers) and food was better than expected. To round out a great experience, the service was wonderful. We will definitely be back again soon!!

Food was great. I got the Angus burger and fries. Food came pretty fast and was superb. Our server was awesome! I would recommend this place to anybody looking for a good meal, or beer. They have a ton of different beers on tap. Give em a try and I guarantee you won't be sorry you did!!

Great beer selection, lots of TVs. Only downside is the food, which could be better. I recommend the corn nuggets and burgers.

I liked it, the bartender was great, and very attentive. Burger was good. I am not local and was dining alone, so was hoping to socialize at the bar. However, it was Trivia Night, so most were engaged. Not their fault, but not the experience I was seeking. I will try again on a non trivia night.

Fantastic selection of beer on draft and great from scratch bar food. We came in game day before going to a UF a game and all of the big games were on and it wasn’t ridiculously crowded. The service was friendly and great as well.

Very good cheese steak sandwich but a little pricey.

Always phenomenal. Wife gets the burger special on Fridays and I usually get the special. It was a jerk chicken Philly this last time. It was soo good!

10/10!!! The workers are so sweet. I recommend coming here!


Great selection of beer and tasty food. The wings I got were a little under-sauced, but I asked them for more and they brought it right out. The cheesesteak quesadilla was very good. They also have live music and different special most days of the week.

Awesome service with a great selection of craft beers (local and non-local), good food, live music/trivia nights. Service was very knowledgeable about beer options and accommodating with food requests. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area looking for a quick bite with good beers!


Best wings I’ve had in a while I haven’t had a chance to sit in yet but it’s on my list

I got the fish and chips and my lady got the Shepards pie. No complaints on the food whatsoever, great portions for the prices. We did sit at the bar so can't speak on service but the bartender was very attentive. The real draw for me is going to their bottle shop after, always an impeccable selection.

The beers most is almost always poured right, some times it's a little low but the fact that the kitchen closes when even it feels like makes it a waste of a trip far too often. They always says something about it being slow despite the fact that it's the busiest I have ever seen it. Also that's just not how business works. You don't know when money is walking in the door, what good does it do ya if people spend there money some place else? Tbh I pretty sure the package store next door is the only thing keeping this place a float. But yeah if it's like after 7pm they close the kitchen the last 10times I have made the trip. I guess if your a booze hound it's fine but if you need more than frier fair keep on rolling.
