Food is OK and interesting choices, good price points, nice people, gets a little loud and feels like tight quarters but enjoyable

If you're looking for a great bar menu with good food options, check out the West End Tavern. The bar itself has a huge selection of drinks and the food was solid. We were there on a football Saturday, so it was fairly busy and loud, but the food was great and much better than your average pub fare. Service was quick and friendly.

Nice spot to post up for a little bit. Great beer selection, amazing whiskey/bourbon menu and HAPPY HOUR STARTED AT 3PM!!!

Did not look at a food menu, cannot comment.

Nice big bar, lots of tables on the first/main floor. Has 4 tables out front on by the street, they were very cramped almost to the point of being a bit awkward. Exploring around a bit more had an upstairs part as well, with some additional seating up there. The views would be incredible.

Down the stairs lead to the bathrooms, very clean cool modern look. Interesting paint décor down there, enjoyable trip to the bathroom.

Was a great spot to wet the whistle for a bit, and with such an early happy hour start time was nice to be able to enjoy the calm before the evening dinner/drink rush for a discount.

Some street parking available on Pearl Street, we parked in a lot Walnut Street and 13th street and enjoyed walking a few blocks of the Pearl Street Mall.

The meal was just ok and the service was extra good.

We had three orders: Buffalo Burger, Half Yard Bird and Beef Brisket. All were just ok and nothing special.

We went here for the rooftop seating and it was a nice evening. They had the heaters and fires going up on the roof and it is covered.

Good selection of beers and we are the BBQ chicken and pork - perfectly cooked and not dry at all. The slaw is very lemony and we asked for extra sauce. Be sure to get the sauce for your meal since they have different ones.

Staff was friendly and efficient and the beer and food came at the right times.

If you're in the mood for casual BBQ and beer, I recommend it. Also recommend the rooftop on a nice evening.
