Last night at arena I got the OMG burger and it was seriously the best burger I've ever had. They also have a great 2 dollar happy hour where house wines and like 50 drafts are included. Really good service too. Would recommend to anyone

The selection of beer here is huge and frequently changing. During happy hour the drafts are only 2 dollars, so it gives you the opportunity to try rare and unique beers without risking a ton of money. The food is great. They have the typical bar food you would expect at a bar food price, but it tastes like it... More

There is an overwhelmingly large selection of beers--foreign, domestic, and craft-brewed. The prices are a bit high, but you can't beat the selection. I had a flat iron steak with bourbon sauce, and it was absolutely delicious. The portion size was not huge, but the quality was terrific and the price was fairly reasonable. The dessert was middling: chocolate thunder... More

We stumbled upon this place about a year ago when we were in town for a WBS Pens game, and it's become an after-game tradition ever since. There's plenty of seating, the food is good, the beer menu alone has over 200 options, and the pieces are VERY reasonable. What more could you ask for? Thanks, Kaitlin, for another awesome... More

This place is your typical bar and grill except they have 100s of unique beers! They have dozens of season beers on tap... from pumpkin to oktoberfests to Apple beers. The food is pretty good as well - nothing groundbreaking, but there burgers are top notch. This place gets very crowded with limited parking. The beers are a bit pricey,... More

Maybe this place gets a great rating but I haven't been here for 5 years and now I remember why. Limp fries warm beer and so so good. This place has everything going for it except what it should be noted for. Probably won't be back for another 5!
