I have a lot of friends who like Craft and a lot of friends that don’t. It’s one of those places.
Personally, I don’t like the interior and think that they haven’t done as much as they could with the space they have (its always full and always crowded with wasted space).
The beers on tap are good but they’re small and overpriced.
The staff usually doesn’t know anything about said beers.
The food is fine. It’s better than the food is at chain pubs, but it’s not worth being at Craft for.
There’s always a line to get in on a Friday and Saturday and often on a Thursday too and once you get in you’ll be standing uncomfortably and feeling like a sardine.
Even nights when we’ve gone and gotten a table, there still wasn’t enough room to comfortably seat everyone and strangers were jammed right in and crowding because management will seriously jam everyone in that they can.
On top of that, I think the only douchier spot in the city is probably West. Maybe Hudsons? No, Craft is worse.
