    Commons is great casual few drinks and the table games are my favorite thing about the place. However, watch out for the staff. By mistake, I left my card behind the bar overnight and they helped them

    Great place, great owner. Awesome beer selection and they also have PBR in a brown bag. Get the chips and dip, or go next door to Joe's for some of the best pizza in town. They let you take it in.

    Great craft beer selections and free popcorn! There are some weird folks that come in to bother you though...

    Make you sure you try a beer taster before you commit! Chips & dip rocks for a snack & pizza available next door. :)

    Connect four and jenga! Pretty cozy spot, a lot less crazy then some of the other spots by the promenade.

    The habenero IPA is magic on your lips. And fire.

    They typically have Omission in bottles, and a cider or two on draft. Great cozy digs in SM.

    Good place for beer and games (Connect 4, Jenga) but acoustics are bad if it gets too crowded.

    Use to be the beer but the service is terrible! Was one of my favorite places but I will never go back and do not recommend this place to anyone that wants to be treated with respect.
