Top notch all around! The brewed beer is excellent, the wings are awesome, and they make one of the best bloody mary's in town! If I had a complaint it would be that there are not enough TV's in the bar area, othewise, it's one of my top places to visit.
Can't beat beer brewed on site. I had a "wet hops" beer, which is made with fresh, undehydrated hops, and really enjoyed it--first time I had ever even heard of such a beer
By accident, I ordered the sampler over lunch. You get more than half a beer for each of the 6 or 7 samples, I was quite tipsy by the time I finished all of them.
They allow smoking
The food is pretty standard pub grub so that is not a major attraction. They brew their own beer but so do other places. I'll be back, but only when there are no smokers.
Great place, great food, great people. Love the beer selection, and people were mostly down to earth and friendly. They have many pool tables upstairs where the bar is. Prices are medium range and they have many beer choices that would be premium priced if available at other bars. Usually a fun time.
Awesome food! Awesome atmosphere! Outstanding brews! You owe it to yourself to try this place!
The BEST food! Great, laid back atmosphere. I have never had bad service here. Once a waiter forgot to bring me another drink that I asked for and when reminded, I got it in a few seconds, and I got it and my next drinks free. We go there all the time as it is wonderfu!
CABCo is a great restaurant on the verge of having big city calibur in a small city atmosphere. The restaurant has a selective menu with great specials every night for a reasonable price. The beer is rich in taste and compliments all entrees. You can dine at this restaurant formally or informally and feel comfortable either way. The staff is always smiling, and the management has your best interest in mind. If you are trying to impress a client, a date, or just wanting a pleasant night out with your family, Court Avenue Brewing Company is right up your alley!
I really like Court Ave. I like their food and their drinks, but the service is horrible. I keep going back there, but the service is the worst in the city. One time a couple of friends and I sat at table in the bar and waited for 20 minutes till I got up and asked the bartender if we have a server and then it took another 10 minutes before the server came over. The food, drinks, and atomsphere are great, but if you are expecting good service, go somewhere else.
CABCo is one of my favorite downtown hangouts. Atmosphere is cool and the food is very consistent. They have one of the best cheeseburgers in town here. They also have a very tasty chicken salad.
Great onion rings with good batter flavor. Very good meal and good service. Enjoyed our dinner.
I thought this place was great. I live in a big city and was in town on business. Amazing jazz band on a Monday night, excellent steaks, and too good to be true beer sampler (9 large glasses) for a nominal amount. I recommend sitting at the bar for more atmosphere.
I don't know what the big deal about this place is. It kind of sucks. The bar area is cool, but the menu is so incredibly boring. I don't know why I keep going back. Maybe I think they'll be better? I don't know.
The brew is good and a nice place to hang before an Icubs game or after a crappy round of golf.
Rock Bottom should buy it and show them how it's done.
The Wonton Cookies - chocolate chip cookie dough in a fried wonton with powdered sugar and chocolate sauce - are a sweet way to end a meal (and just $1.99).
Potstickers are excellent! Try 'em!
Try a root down, well worth it.
Honest Lawyer I.P.A. might be the best micro in Des Moines....
Wings are the best. Kelly.is the best bartender too now that james sold out
If you like malty beers like me, you gatta try the Oaked Evie's Alt.
Join the mug club. I hear the belgian white is awesome
Great microbrews, try buffalo meat loaf
The sampler rack is worth every penny, especially if this is your first visit.
Try the brew sampler. All of the brews are awesome!
Micah is the best bartender ever.
Try the pork medallions wrapped in bacon with the red wine currant glaze. Love on a plate.
Try the Funky Monkey reserve beer b4 they run out.
The fish and chips dinner is to die for!
21st amendment. Literally unreal.....
They have a good tasting option to try all their brews, but be warned, their idea of a "tasting portion" is pretty hefty. It's best if you have someone to share with.
21st Amendment, Black IPA, Pumpkin, Fresh Hop are great
Micah is always the coolest dude ever... And knows his musicas. Love the iPod playing right meow.
Good beer but terrible service.
Best bartenders ever!!!! A perfect welcome to Des Moines :)
Sunday is Wing Night! $0.45 wings.
The Fried Chicken salad makes an awesome lunch!
Try the starburst martini and the 1/2 price apps from 4-6 pm M-F.
I eat the Colossus Salad like it's my job...hummus, falafel, pita points, mixed greens, cucumber greek dressing. DELISH.
Tracy is THE BEST waitress!!!!
Try the Merguez Flatbread (via @Foodspotting)
Back in Black is a dark IPA. Give it a try while it's still here.
