    The brussels sprouts and artichoke hearts are great appetizers. Lots of tasty craft beer to choose from.

    Typically one of my favorite places for dates, but completely being ignored by the bar tenders. Don't sit behind the taps.

    Wish I remembered the bartenders name..he was great! New to Federal I remember. Came in for my birthday and he made me a great gin jalapeño drink. Loved it! They have such a great menu here, my fave.

    I like this place. Good selection of drinks. Pricey, but not unlike similar bars. Only disappointed that you can get a table if you don't eat; sometimes I just want to drink and watch a game :\

    Their burgers are bar none some of the best around. Anything with their pretzel bum = yum. But their wings, Brussels sprouts, artichokes, and pretzel appetizers are also standouts. Great beer options!
