Absolutely the best Reuben Sandwich I've ever had. The corned beef was so tender and juicy! I will be back for more! Nice atmosphere, but the service could have been faster. Will give a second chance!!!

Easy access from highways. Great food and the craft beers are excellent. Outside patio is dog friendly... our dog got water before we did! They let you put together a six pack of mixed beers to go. Service was fantastic.. ask for Rodney...he is the best! More...

We always try to seek out the local places. This is by far the best local brew company I have ever been to. The Dogtown Brown and Strawberry Blonde was wonderful. We had the chance to eat there here as well. I am so glad we did. The Cobb Salad was outstanding. The chicken melted in your mouth. The homemade potato salad...well lets just say...they need to sell it by the tub full. Kevin our server was the only wait staff on but he was fast and efficient. He took time to answer questions and you could tell he enjoyed his job. We even purchased some beer from their on site store. Thank you everyone at Dimobd Bear for making these out of state visitors feel at home. We will be returning...with friends of course. More...

Drove from Chicago to Little Rock to see Metallica, many bars were full up. Diamond Bear had great ratings so we took a little walk from the Verizon Center. Place was busy, not packed. The staff was friendly but moved with what seemed to be zero urgency. We were probably there for 3 hours and received two drink orders, both were wrong. The bartender provided us with several complimentary drinks, you could tell it was a rough few hours. Sad to see patrons weren't very forgiving that night. Great drinks at a low price, I will try to come back! More...

This smaller, tucked away brewery was by far the best I have ever been to. A strong history is made known by their amazing free tour. They have a strong variety of beers that are delicious and the food is by far the best I have ever had at a bar or brewery. When you check it out, be sure to ask about their mug club and the passports. Cheers. More...

What a lovely visit we had on Sunday afternoon. The beer and food are delicious, and the background music was not so loud so as to force us to shout at each other during our meal. The table placements, bar and patio seating create many options, and the acoustics are pleasant. So many breweries and restaurants have such a loud "vibe" these days, but our experience at Diamond Bear was relaxed and conducive to a nice Sunday Brunch experience. Easy to bike to as well from the River Trail! More...

As a Dallas area brewer, I was very impressed with the brewery, taproom and staff. The staff were very cool and helpful. The beers were solid and good across a good range of styles. The taproom had good food and a great laid back feel. Definitely will come back again when I visit Little Rock. Have to say it: it's a diamond in the rough. More...

Nice little Brew House with a good selection and large stock of product. The hazy IPA seasonal is spot on, as is rocktoberfest and the porter. Very brisk, bold beers without the soft, round edges that suit beginners palates. Very strong attitude of service with good southern courtesy from the moment we walked in the door!Update: spoke to other people in regards to disappointment with beer flavor. Was told that brewing sours has tainted their beer. Why are they selling product that isnt representative of what they normally produce? More...

Great place to stop in with friends for a good craft beer and food. They offer a good selection of beers that are made in house. They also have a good food menu that rangers from appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, brats, and even desserts. If you have the time stop in and grab a pint.... Definitely coming back next time I'm in Little Rock. More...

My wife and I visited Diamond Bear Brewery a day before the Little Rock Marathon. They had a great selection of excellent beer but the food is what impressed us the most. Made-from-scratch bratwurst, bread, German potato salad and sauerkraut was a pleasant surprise. The potato salad was probably the best I've ever had. Hard-working staff and a great experience.

My host and I enjoyed DBB front outdoor seating. The beer was great and service was good. Our dinning experience took place during shift change and I was very happy with how they handled the transition. We never felt rushed.When the charcuterie board was brought to the table, however, I wasn't given a quick run down of the items on the board. They were all good but I would have wished to have known what cheeses and meats I was enjoying. When I visit LR again, I would absolutely consider stopping by Diamond Bear. More...

Wasn't too big of a fan of their beer a few years ago, but having it on draft is way better. Ps. Their bread pudding is THE BEST I've ever had. And I've had plenty.

28 September 2018

Very cool, modern place. I love the way the entire place is decorated. There is wood everywhere. They serve a wonderful bratwurst and German potato salad. My husband got the El Cubano and it was amazing! Be sure and try the strawberry blonde beer. It has the taste of a normal blonde brew but with a champagne, bubbly crisp taste to go along with it. Totally going back here again. More...

Loved the "new" (4yrs old) location, I just moved back from Dallas after five years, and I loved it!! Nice setup, more beer choices, sadly I didn't get a chance to try the food, but I will definitely be returning soon. Knowledgeable, and friendly staff, good service, and good brews!! More...

We stopped by on our way back from the Buffalo River. We went here for the beer of course. However the food was amazing as well. Everyone loved everything we got. The Sunday brunch menu was different from what we expected but didn't disappoint. I had the farm house burger with potatoes O'Brien, both had great flavor. I also had the Honey-Weis beer which was light and had a great flavor. After that I tried the Dogtown which is an Amber beer, it has a great Amber flavor. I loved the visit to Diamond Bear and plan on stopping by or next trip through the area. Service was exceptional as well!!! More...

Great Brewery and Taproom. I'm here almost every week playing trivia drinking excellent local beer and eating great food. If you go to a brewery in central Arkansas this should be your first stop . I believe they have been at it the longest and have represented the state well. The taproom is full of big screen tvs, a good size bar. and plenty of seating. They have a solid menu and offer one of the best club sandwiches I've had. And they make an unbelievably tasting bread pudding dessert everyday that will leave you wanting more. More...

Food and beer were terrific. Very relaxed atmosphere in both dress and speed of service. They have a outdoor pet friendly patio they call the "Petio" and even have water bowls for the dogs. Initial service was a bit, um, delayed. (We almost left because no one would wait on us). The food made it well worth the wait. More...

I was a little skeptical pulling up to the place. It's in an odd location, but holy smokes was that good! They have a good selection of craft beer and we had the brat sandwiches (great portions). Service was attentive and friendly. Bathrooms were clean. Would recommend. More...

Went at about 11am. The burger special of the day was amazing, and great Mac and cheese. The wife had a Ruben, it was amazing as well. Outside seating is great. If your contemplating eating at a brewery, I assume you already know about the beer selection. It's always good. Loved every bit of it. More...

Excellent venue and glad to whitness Diamond Bear's success. The Frisco club was hearty and unlike the traditional club. The Southern Blonde was awesome from the tap and does have a fun strawberry hit on the nose. Kevin was a great waiter and we kindly thank him for his recommendations. More...

Among the first of the growing, illustrious club of Arkansas craft brewers. If you still haven't had one of these Hop Master's ales, do yourself a favor.

T
28 September 2016

The beer is by far one of the best local brews you can get! I enjoy trying the darker beers but always end up finishing with the Southern Blonde. The patio is great especially for larger groups. The best part is the food! Everything we've ever had has been out of this world with flavor. The Cuban Sandwich defies all standards!It's laid back and has a comfortable feel. I did notice the servers were using their phones pretty heavily but I would like to think if you avoid that area you'll be fine. (The server's station is exposed next to the kitchen window so the staff congregates to the right of the bar.) Service is great when you need a drink but not as attentive when it comes to the food. I'm always excited to try something new, it's almost a shame they don't draw more attention to it. More...

I try to support my local brewers as much as possible, and am glad to recommend Diamond Bear as quality local fare! The Saturday tour is quite enjoyable, free samples and a full walkthrough of the brewery and its processes. Bring in 10 of their 6-pack or 12-pack carriers and trays to recycle and they'll give you a pint glass. Fresh beer on tap for purchase - even on Sundays (as local breweries are the only places allowed to sell take-away alcohol on Sundays) More...

About the beer ..... I have sampled most of the beers from our local brew pubs, micro breweries, some out-of-state, as well as major distributors. There are a lot of good one's out there. I am not a certified expert but, have done a few beer shows and sampling. For a good smooth full flavored beer you just can't go wrong with Diamond Bears "Pale Ale". When I have a gathering of "thinkers and drinkers" at my house, it is good to have a few of these handy. About service ...... I am amazed by the Diamond Bear guys willingness to accomodate any event large or small. You know they are an Arkansas owned company by their effort to take care of their customers. I have only meet them in person during a couple of events but, KUDOS to the Melton family and many lifetimes of success! More...
