I stopped in yesterday again hoping to meet Wes (a manager who posts on BA), but unfortunately he wasn't there, guess I'll have to go back.
The patio is cheerful, usually filled with a good looking, laid back Midtown crowd. Not a bad place to spend an evening, although the furniture isn't the most comfortable. I enjoyed the big screen HD TV on the patio as well, but the sound was quiet and it didn't feel like a sports bar, thank goodness.
They're working on improving and rotating their beers on tap, which is good. Not many bars in Midtown with Chimay on tap. Very happy to see the Sweetwater IPA instead of 420. My DFH 90 was served in a DFH glass, which is nice. Currently they're doing an 8 week series of revolving Oktoberfest kegs, which is right up my alley.
Our server wasn't good, unfortunately. He didn't really know about the Oktoberfest keg, I had to convince him he really had Paulaner on tap. He also tried to pick up the check not only before we'd left (pet peeve of mine), but before I'd even signed the receipt. And we weren't exactly lingering, there were open tables. I have a feeling this was an isolated incident, and won't hold it against the place unless it happens again.
I think the prices are a little high for beer ($7.50 for my 90 minute IPA, $6 for my Paulaner), but whatever. I'll give them kudos for their $3 "Cypress Ale" which is Flying Dog Pale Ale, not Naddy like most places. If you're in Midtown, it's worth stopping by.
