At the Loophole you get what you get. Good bar, decent pub food and a great location on the Square. Good selection of draft beers and competent mixologists. Service can be hit or miss sometimes but it's very convenient in the heart of downtown Denton...More

Stopped in at 11:45am to get a burger because of the good things we've heard. However, upon entering we were told that no person under 21 was allowed due to a City Ordinance for smoking establishments. (We had our 13yr old with us.) At first,...More

Large selection of interesting beer, very good food, tasty, not greasy. Not your usual burgers, fresh flavored buns, thin and crispy fries. Several aioli dipping sauces, fresh salad dressings. The whole menu is a win win. There are no bad choices. Friendly staff, great service....More

I always seem to have a great and calm night out when I go here. The food and drinks a little pricier than Id like but the poutine is worth it. Wasn't as big of a fan of the chicken fla tbread I got.

We came here to parch out thirst. I tried the Double 0 seven drink. I was not impressed. Not to mention that the waiter kept forgetting my drink orders. We did not have any food but the atmosphere is neat so it's worth the trip.
