Reviews for El Bait Shop

"Two Hundred Sixty-Two." Yes. You read that right. They have 262 beers on tap. It took me five minutes to decide on a beer, let alone dinner! Something for absolutely everyone. My wife had a Patty Melt w/Onion Rings and enjoyed it very much. I had a Bacon Cheeseburger w/fries. It was great. Both items contained two 1/4lb patties. Be prepared for a half-pound burger! Atmosphere was excellent. Thanks to Matthew, our server, for keeping us refreshed! All-in-all, highly recommended.
Very horrible service. We where celebrating a birthday party and they find tables and ask for our drinks. our drinks where not there after 20 minutes so we went up and asked and they came back with them. So we decide to order food and an hour and 30 minutes go by with no food and then another thirty. At this point some guests had to be seated at another table and they where finished and ready to go. so we get the manager and he gets us or food that is cold now. So we complain...read full review

We really enjoyed our first visit here with some out of town visitors this weekend. As advertised, the beer selection was phenomenal, it was delivered cold, they had a great open area for eating and drinking and our waitress' personality added to the experience.We will definitely return another time.
