the good - our waiter came over fairly quickly after we sat down. he brought us extra chips for our appetizer when he saw we were low
the not so good - my husband had to ask 3x for sweetner for his tea. the wine pour was very small so two glasses was really like one. we never saw our waiter after our food arrived which was too bad because I would have ordered another drink. the food was so-so.

Love the beers, the food could use some work. The quesadilla was less than to be desired. Chicken fried steak was sub par for the price.

We got a reservation on July 3 at 7:00. The bar was packed but the dining area not completely full. You could tell that the wait staff was stretched. Our drink orders took longer than necessary, but all in all it was a fun place. Burgers and fries were good, as were the fried pickles. We will be back!

This was my second visit. The first time was great. This time the service was very slow. We had a reservation, but they didn't setup a table until we showed up, as one example. Not impressed at all.

The food just wasn't that great! Everyone at the table agreed the restaurant and menu was just trying too hard. Definitely do not get the fish tacos, or the hummus appetizer.

Such a cool location and interesting decor. We love Trinity Groves area so decided to check this place out. Service was ok and the food was about the same. We ordered the nachos and Chile cheese fries along with a couple beers. Nothing spectacular or something I couldn’t have made myself.

The beer was really good though and had a large selection!

Overall it was a fun experience, with great food and beer. I love that they offer games to play, we took full advantage. My only criticism would be our waiter, I know he was swamped and he still did a great job considering that. But I wish he would have continued service even though we had paid out. Just checked in with us to make sure we were still good or remove plates. I’ll give an extra tip if the server goes beyond. Again though this is a cool place with good brews.

Pastrami sandwich was good but if it had the sauce in it was not detectable. My wife’s fish tacos ere doughy, with under seasoned fish but very spicy salsa. Beer selection was wide ranging and our choices were delicious. Service was friendly and helpful. Would recommend for beer but not for food.

Would not recommend due to slow service with food that’s just ok at best.

Service: The restaurant was half empty. Chose the patio as it was a nice night. Service was extremely slow. The menus were drenched with beer when provided to us.
Flight took a very long time along with no napkins/utensils until food came out.

Food: Nachos were good but not great. Halibut tacos were probably the best dish but the sides were ok at best. The poutine sounded delicious but came out with cheese in lumps and not even warm.

Drinks: their selection of beers sounded good but presentation needs work: the flight comes half-spilled so all glasses sticky.

Very disappointing experience.
The location is also not the best if you park in the trinity groves area. It’s hard to cross the street and can be dangerous.

The look at feel of the brewery was very cool. We met a friend there and had our 3 month old because it was full restaurant, not just bar. The set up in the restaurant was just fine for a baby, but there was no changing table in the women's restroom. My husband enjoyed his shrimp tacos (menu advertised fish tacos) and our friend enjoyed his chicken sandwich. I got the frito pie and it was dry and the cheese on top looked like it had been sitting for a bit. Their 3 dip appetizer was pretty good.

Invited a group of guy friends out during my wife’s baby shower. Ordered several different appetizers and beer flights to share. Everything was on point! The poutine is absolutely fantastic. Shishito pepper, dips, cheese board and biscuits n gravy were all solid. Not my first visit, and have liked most everything on the menu. Their beers are true to style and also super solid. Highly recommended!

We went for the Bachelor finale watch party... took about a half hour for a drink and an hour to get our food, my pork tacos had a bone in them, and the audio was so terrible you couldn’t hear anything. They just were not prepared for that many people or an event of that size. It’s a super cool concept with a cool environment but if they don’t get more staff and their food quality perfected, they may not last too long in such a competitive market.

Really large open space indoors and plenty of outdoor seating available.
Great food! If you love IPA styled beers you are in luck here! Unfortunately I am in the minority and drink wheat beers, of which they had one and it was just ok.

My husband and I were in town and decided to get some brunch here before heading back home. The beer was delicious!! The food wasn’t quite as good but pretty good for a brewery I suppose. I got the eggs Benedict with salmon and the eggs and biscuit were both overdone. But overall we had a great experience!

I've reviewed Steam Theory Brewery before and gave it 5 stars and now after another visit for my birthday I feel the same way. Great beer, food, service, and friendly people. They were very good to my group but they're gracious to everyone. Thanks Chuck and Jonathan.

We’ve been to the restaurant 3 times now. One was a work happy hour and everyone loved it. Great appetizers. I know they are still working on their menu, but I was a little disappointed that some of those yummy appetizers were no longer available. On our last visit, I got the schnitzel and it was wonderful. Can’t wait to go back.

Steam Theory's attention to detail is beautiful! It's one of the best Reubens I've ever had --- and the potato chips were really light and tasty! And that beer!!!!

One of the best restaurants in Dallas!

Service was very slow, didn’t even look that busy for the holiday. They allow smoking right at the door so we got to enjoy smoke blowing into our area while eating dinner. Wasn’t impressed with the food selection. I did enjoy the variety of beer they brew, but would’ve liked some other options on beer types they don’t brew. Would probably give one more chance but won’t go out of my way to go here.

Loved the experience. Food and drinks were awesome. Band was too loud to have much conversation. Go when they don't have someone playing or is a more low key performer.

We did the beer flights to taste since this was our first time here. Beer was very good, my favorite being the Cherry Xmas stout. My wife loved all of the IPAs. There were four of us and we went because it was my wife's birthday and she wanted to try it out. 3 of us really like our food, but one of us had the brat and chicharrones and was disappointed. First, they were out of chicharrones and second the brat was very dry. Our server never mentioned they were out of chicharrones until the food showed up. They did however offer to replace the meal for something else and we did not have to pay for it.
I had the Reuben, my wife had the beef short ribs and our guest had the pasta. All were very good. The only thing that kept me from rating them higher was I mentioned it was my wife's birthday when I made the reservation, and she was offered nothing as far as dessert. No big deal, as we usually don't order dessert,
but it would have been nice to at least offer.
