Food and beer is good, but service terribly slow. Might be good if you go for a slow dinner, but with customers it won't work. Waited 15 minutes to get some beers.

The bar has a large selection of good beers and a even larger choice of snacks and dishes. It’s definitely worth the visit! Service could be slightly quicker but it’s not bad at all...

You should call or e-mail them, because Fridays can be very busy. Otherwise, I think you shouldn't have any problems booking a table for 12. Try calling them, too. Have a nice celebration!
