    Craft Beer selection is legit. Good food selection, definitely not typical bar food, and US Soccer everything!

    Make sure you park in the Haymaker lot, not the one to the east, or you risk a boot on your tires.

    I got the nutty grilled cheese it was ok it could use more flavor. Their sweet potato fries were delicious along with their fluffenutty Cristo. Plus $2 margs on Friday... I dig this place.

    Delicious cocktails. Highly recommend the Red Headed Mule - whiskey infused organic black cherries, fresh ginger, and orange peel served in a copper mug.

    The Cuban pressed burger and fries were delicious! The frozen margarita was mediocre (and not frozen)... but that's what you can expect from a $2 marg right?

    Their southern style poutine is ridiculous. Get it. Also if it's still on draft get the Bible Belt beer. It's $10 for a half pint but god damn is it worth it.

    Great selection of global and local beers and a good hangout spot, Haymaker is geared toward sandwich-loving beer drinkers. The food is hit or miss, though its two varieties of poutine are very tasty. Read more

    Beer is good-Elsewhere. I have had good experiences in a dive bar to a 5star; I walk away loving a new beer/Brewer. This place made me wanna drink wine. Long live Austin brewers! Salty, lifeless food.

    Order the Haymaker, but forget the fried egg. It adds too much salt for what's already a delicious flavor explosion.

    A good place for a fun night out! 39 types of beer on tap, and tons more bottled. Great food plus shuffleboard, pool, and TVs to watch the game. Menu Must-try: the Traditional Poutine - IT ROCKS!!!
