    Happy hour till 9pm and great variation of their own brews. Washington And White Ales are great but feel free to ask for their equivalent of your favorite for an affordable alternative.

    Wednesdays are $1.50 brews but it's always a sausagefest - have your beer selection ready before they ask and go to the guys in the back for fast results.

    Stopped on a whim and glad we did. The beers on tap cannot be beat and the food is great

    $2 beers until 9pm on Wednesdays, but get there early because it gets crowded. The food is cheap during happy hour, but it doesn't taste that great.

    Eat here all the time. Food and service is great! Good beer too though I don't drink it much. The Dj on Wednesdays is awesome too!

    Before you get on the bus, stop by and grab a pint or two! Great place to meet up with friends before heading out to Gold Cup.

    Save room for dessert. The mini donuts are amazing! Served warm with a caramel dipping sauce. Delicious!

    Probably best Summertime Wed Happy Hour in Arlington. $1.50 beers until 9PM. Place is packed, but great place to meet people. Afterwards, head across the st. to Front Page for half-off burgers Read more

    Great if you're looking for a good drink, appetizer or salad. Not so great if you're looking for a genuinely great steak.

    Tip well on Wednesday nights. Servers deserve a little extra for slinging all those $1.50 pints.

    Food is better than all of the other local bars. Beer is way better. Someone below asked "How can they mess up chicken tenders?" I just wonder who over twelve years old orders chicken tenders?

    Mediocre food. First time here and was expecting great bar food but everything is bland. How do you mess up chicken tenders? Not worth the prices in my opinion.
