Nice vibe in this college area restaurant/brewery. Very decent beer selection from the brewery and we sampled a variety of apps at happy hour prices. Excellent wings!

I am told this is a U of A institution with a long popular history. We only came for after dinner drinks so have no comment on the food, but the beers were great and atmosphere nice for late day socializing.

Great beer selection and great tasting beer. Loved sitting on the large covered outdoor patio and people watching. Excellent location right next to U of A and at a Sunlink stop. Fun place to relax and hang out !

I've eaten here many times. The burgers are fabulous, as are the tacos. Prices are reasonable -- under $10 for a plain burger.

I was at Gentle Ben's last night for a business mixer. It had been a while since I was at GB. I was really impressed how nice all of the staff was and the drinks and food were way above average. We were on the patio and it was large enough to handle the group I was with. I'm going... More

Good food and ok service. Right in the middle of busy campus area, and it was obvious they cater to this demographic. Very loud metal music playing and could barely hear our colleagues. Just ok.

Have been to Gentle Ben's several times and enjoyed the food and service. This was totally different!! The service was deplorable!!!!! Not sure why I even left a decent tip because our waiter didn't provide any service. We all had empty water glasses, but we didn't see our waiter until we had been done for quite some time. He didn't... More

Very young crowd and thoroughly enjoyable! Very lively, happy, up-beat place! Great college hang-out. Brought back memories! We had "Cody" as our server - Very nice person!! Nolan's porter was decidedly worth a pint! I had the Black 'n' Bleu burger - Very good! My wife had the California burger. Wonderful! (I got a slice of it!) The garlic fries... More
