Good beer and food, two winning combinations! Must try the Carole Pasta, it's one of my favorites! Diverse laid back atmosphere.

Craft beer is always a win. There have a diverse tap list and the beer was good. The menu was large but not overly so and trendy. Burgers are cooked to order. The Baja fish tacos were very tasty. I'd recommend them. This place of industrial modern. Cool environment. I'd definitely return for beer and food without hesitation.

I believe this place has had a better days. Ground floor is just perfect, stay there, eat and drink there. On second floor, hmmmm, while waiting on line for restroom (only one in a beer bar - common) i observed a kitchen. Was not really willing to eat afterwards, could not figure out where is kitchen, dish washing area and... More

2nd visit was good - the 2 of us had a chicken sandwich and a french dip sandwich. Beer was as usual - cold, crisp and easy-drinking. 3rd visit had a larger group - we had burgers, fish tacos, nachos and beef and broccoli. Everything was cooked well, it was all flavorful and fresh!

My hubby & I stopped in here & split a flight of beers on a Friday night. They have several good choices for their own brewed beers. IPA'S to stouts were all yummy. Although we didn't eat, many around us had delicious looking bar food. We noticed most people were headed on to a hockey game, so this is a... More

We have been to DBC in the past and have been very happy...this time is the complete opposite! We went here on a Saturday with another couple and got a seat right away, that should have been our first clue. The employees acted like we were bothering them by being there. Our dinners were terrible, I didn't even eat mine.... More

Hello, We are sorry to hear that this most recent experience, was not as positive as your past ones with us! We never want our staff members to be described as unapproachable and do apologize that you had felt that this was the case. It is also disappointing to hear that you did not enjoy the food served to you.... More

We visited on a Saturday evening and were immediately seated after we found the hostess who was not at her station. The food is your basic bar fare of burgers and American classics. The burger patty was premade, and nothing special. The beer was the best part as it was tasty and true style. The stout was very nice. Our... More

Don't order hard liquor. One shot of flavored vodka grape to be exact was $8. The food was average. My husband enjoyed the fried fish. I had a salad with grilled chicken. I must say the grilled chicken was perfectly cooked. I truly think I could have eaten the same meal at a Coney Island and paid a lot less.

Never been there. Definitely glad we went. Solid beer selection, but they could use a little more flavor. The food was spectacular and the prices were outstanding. Between two of us, two flights, six pints, starter, and main course, all for less than $60! Would go again without question.

The hostess was far from the mostest. She lied about our wait time and never apologized. Never had a smile on her face, I suggest she not work in customer service. After taking it upon ourselves, we ordered from the bar an hour later after being told it would be 10 minutes to get a table. You'd think after this... More
