Service is lacking. For appetizers stay away from the figs but oder the brie. Pizza is all very good. BEER is of course the center of it's attraction. I agree , many great beers to choose from.

Monday is Pint Night - imports for $3.75. Love the crowd in the back room that night too - you can show up alone and leave knowing at least 3 new real friends.

Interesting variety of sliders here. From burger to pork to crab to fish.

Best tap beer in the state of Iowa, full stop. Try Bell's Two Hearted, Fuller's ESB, or Rogue Dead Guy - all first rate drafts. Good hands-off service at the bar; they stay back and let you drink.

Best beer selection in town, best atmosphere. Good people , good music and no God damn T.V. sets! I love it here.

Try the Buffalo Negra cocktail. It sounds weird, but is amazing. They do have Templeton Rye, but it costs $12 a drink. Yikes!

Introduced me to Buffalo Trace. They win.

Service has gone down hill, expect a 20 minute wait for your drinks. To bad because the beer selection is the best in Iowa City.
