This place sure doesn't look like much, but it is packed because the beer choices are plentiful and the sandwiches are cheap and delicious. Also, try whatever soup they've cooked up. Also, to get there you have to cross one of the last remaining swing bridges in Florida. If you're lucky (and not in a hurry) it's really cool to... More

This place is awesome. Great food and huge variety of approx 670 different beers. Self service and just pay for empties at the end. Casual atmosphere and great staff. Definitely worthwhile visiting

If you happen to be anywhere 10 miles or more from here, hang with the locals and drink anything from a bland bud light [maybe hard to locate] or any one of 200+ well selected craft beers!

Its the coolest bar in fll. Its a beer market with good food. There are more Than 100 types of beers! I would recommend fried sweet potato as starter and the famous cheese pizza!!!! We also asked a chicken salad. For me, the best salad i've ever ate in us! You grab your own beer in the freezer, ask for... More

Great find in Ft. Lauderdale. Riverside Market is what we would love to have in our area but simply this place is one a good kind! Unassuming from outside and very cool on the inside. Outside seating looks good and I suspect gets lots of use as this place likely fills up during the busy times. Inside you grab a... More

Best way for me to describe this place is like walking into toy store and loving every item. It's a large do it yourself bar service. However all the refrigerators are full of different beers. When I say different beers there's probably over 650 choices. There's ample tables and sitting areas for you to relax. The place is decorated great... More

Laid back atmosphere and more different beers than I could count, many on tap and a huge number more in bottles/cans. The staff was very personable and knowledgeable about the beers that are in stock. The sandwiches were excellent. My Pastrami Reuben was great as were the fish tacos. Prices were very reasonable. Off the beaten path and well worth... More

Stopped in here on the way to Miami after seeing raves about it online. Being a huge beer connoisseur (husband and I are always looking for new beers and like to visit breweries everywhere we go), I was more than amazed. The place looks small from the outside and is in the middle of a neighborhood, which I think keeps... More

I was expecting cool according to a friend's recommendation and it sure fit the bill. My parents owned a mom and pop convenience store when I was a kid and it brought me back to that store...it may have been the fridges. It's like Purdy Lounge meets beer selection heaven, meets above average after hours restaurant. It takes you from... More

We were sure we were in the wrong place because it's in the middle of a quiet residential neighborhood. The waitress was very welcoming an informative, and asked me what I liked in a beer and made some recommendations. The mixed green salad was fresh and generously sized, and the pizza was fine, not a reason to visit but quite... More
