    Excellent food selection, the Ox Tail is phenomenal and has the benefit of being the least expensive entrée. If you get a chance, track down Chef Chad and spend some time learning his food philosophy.

    It sounds like stoner food, but the pork belly Mac & cheese fries were insanely good. Mac and cheese, collards and some old bay fries with a hint of rosemary.

    Best beer selection in the city. Sips is unfortunately not on the list, but love seeing up on the bar. #vt

    Fish tacos are excellent with some crazy roasted corn salsa. Loud but good bc they are playing Phoenix - what's not to like? Cool space to boot.

    Went back later in the day and I'm glad I did! Great atmosphere and great craft beer selection. Wish I had more time to try them all!

    Love the craft beer selection. $15 will get you four 5oz pours. The feral pig pork sliders were really tasty!

    Get the black bean burger and fall in love with their dill guacamole. Always impressed by their beer list - Arrogant Bastard was on draft!

    Great chill atmosphere. And I must echo what everyone else says. Smokehouse burger, duckfat fries, and a draft beer, or five.

    Make a reservation for dinner...or take your chances trying to get a seat at the bar. Bartenders are friendly...but c'mon, don't ask for miller lite!

    Smoke Burger with Fries is pretty much the staple, but they also have other great foods too like the catfish tacos. Great service!

    Great draught beer list. For food try either the smokehouse or black bean burgers.

    Alewife accepts! Have your friends buy you a drink or an appetizer even when they are at the bar with you.

    Best tap list in Baltimore - great if you are in the area, but it'll be packed before a big event at the arena.

    This is a good place if your a beer drinker. Service was so-so and not enough bar space. One beer for $5 during happy hour but no app specials? C'mon! My fried oysters were partially cold. Overall "6"

    Expect to drink large quantities of good beer. If you're eating, have the Smoke Burger or Blue Catfish Tacos.

    $1 off drafts, $2 off food M-F 4-7, try the black bean burger--better than most veggie burgers!

    If you order the burger the menu doesn't lie. This takes a LONG time. So if you're looking to rush out, order when you first sit down!
