Great Atmosphere – Great location, excellent rock music that was selected by the bartenders. Excellent beer and food menus.
Great neighborhood bar – I recently celebrated my birthday at House of Brews and they bent over backwards to make it a special night. The food was good and plentiful, everyone in my party was treated wonderfully and everyone on staff - the manager, the bartenders and the wait staff made sure that the party was a success. Special commendation goes to our waitress, Jena, who worked extremely hard for us, promptly took care of all our needs and always did so with a smile and a winning personality. She definitely added to the celebratory evening.
Great Beer! – Had a few great time - Jena helped us pick some great beers...loved the hoptical illusion.
New flat screens, bad picture! – Great bartender(colin),great food(like the new menu), great beer selection but very poor quality picture on the new flat screen tvs'.Bring back the old tube tvs'.
awesome beer, awesome waitress! – came in and sat downstairs after seeing the 2-4-1 stella sign and wound up having some other awesome brews that our waitress suggested (pretty sure her name was jenna). after talking to her i would now consider myself a better educated beer drinker! also they have great onion rings and a beer and burger lunch deal--i highly recommend this place!
Good spot for a B-Day party – My friend Emily had her b-day party here last week in the loubge room upstairs and the staff could not have been nicer. They were very understanding about all the seperate checks and specials requests. We had our own little room off the main bar that had couches and a giant flat screen tv. I was drinking a blueberry beer and it had fresh blueberrys in it. Nice touch!
Solid beer selection in midtown – Stumbled upon this place last night with meeting an old friend. As luck would have it itwas 2 for 1 Stella night. Can't beat $3 stellas any day. 20-30 odd taps and about 60 bottles on their list. Solid selection of local brews. We tried the nachos and chicken fingers and both were prety good. Nice place, wood bars with flat screens for the Ranger game.
HUGE dissapointment – i am a local that has been coming to the house of brews for a while now. in the past i could not find a negative thing to say about the place but recently my opinion has changed. the only two stand out things that remain for me are the daytime bartender colin who is fantastic and Dana a waitress, both have been there as long as i have been a patron. It is very regretful that this place hhas been tainted for me because i truly enjoyed it but a few weeks ago i encountered kate..a manager who has been around for i guess a short time..but i saw her berating the staff and hovering over the patrons. i felt sorry for the girls on the floor..i work in the industry so i may be a little more in tuned with things of this nature but SOOOOO unprofessional. i have never been turned off by this place before and its a shame because im just not sure ill be back. to the owner..your staff is wonderful..as far as this new addition..not so much..take it from someone whos spent a very decent amount of money at your establishment.
OK but not great – The beer list was extensive and the service was great. My only complaint was that some drunk guy was flipping out on a waitress and made a bit of a scene. Should have been brought under control and wasn't at all. Other than that it was uneventful. A good bar if you don't mind the b&t crowd.
Dependable Beer and Grub in Theatre District – Tasty fresh beers on tap and in bottles starting at a reasonable 5.50 (although how big is that glass?!) and large portions of well cooked food. I had the Philly Cheesesteak Sandwhich which was a solid steak cooked to be lovely and juicy with a mountain of fries. If you're going to a show and don't want a full on dinner menu this is the place, everything was delivered to our table of four extremly swiftly. The menu seems to have more variety at the joint than on this website, including for instance a bean burger for veggies.
