This bar is great. Don't pay attention to the yuppies that gave this place a bad review. They probably frequent the Virgina Highlands, and my advice to them is stay where you are. You will also notice that these users rate 1 thing and that was this place. They are probably competing bars giving this place a bad review to find business. If you look at my profile I have rated pleanty of restaurants and bars. Take my advice if you really want a deal try 6 beers for 18$, and these beers on Ratebeer dot com are highly rated, so you are not having to chug on Miller Light or Budweiser if you know what I mean. Also, 8 beers and a meal for 30$, now that is a deal. I would recommend going on Wednesday nights which is ""Pint Night."" The pints are cheaper. Also, they offer a $2.50 ""Starving Artist"" beer which rotates every week it seems. The people are relaxed, and the atmosphere represents the type of person you would see at this place. Hunter, the bartender, is really nice and always checks to see if you are doing okay. Who cares about the attitude of the owner, as long as I am not having to drink with this guy, I don't care. The food is bar food, so get over it. If you want to go to a great restaurant go to Chops. The beer selection is great, St. Bernardus (10% abv), Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout (9.5% abv), Terrapin Rye Ale, and Victory brand beers, are a few beers on the menu. Hunter, the bartender also told me they are going to serving more microbrew beers. This I think is great, given there are a lot of awesome American microbrews. If you want to relax and have cheap drinks come here, if you are a Virginia Highland yuppie punk, stay away. Thinking Man's is a place to relax and drink. More people should drink this way, if you truly appreciate good beer.
Pros: Great Beer Prices
Cons: In a weird area, if you live in Midtown.
