I have lived in Raleigh for 6 years and never knew this place existed. I am very surprised that this place is not in the top 10 on TripAdvisor places to eat in Raleigh. If you are looking for comfort food, comfort beer, comfort atmosphere…...More

This place has a lot of beers. Not just on tap but bottles and cans too. The day we were in it was four dollar can beers. Really cool place worth checking out

Difficult to chose, bartender brought a few tastings until I found the one. Loved the special stouts. Nice food for a bar.

This was my fourth visit here. The beer selection is huge. The apps and pizzas are great. And the service is the best. Went tonight after the snowstorm, and they had half the staff. And they excelled.
