Sadly, this location is now CLOSED. Fortunately there are still three other Opal's around town until they get a replacement. The building, while kind of cool and historic was much smaller than any of the other Opal's locations and had begun to "cramp their style" according to the owners. Last beers served were at the end of May. They are looking for a new, larger downtown location, set to open in 2014.

The first thing I noticed when approaching Opal’s was the two-story patio that welcomes you in. While the view is only the traffic (foot and vehicle) on 6th street, the vibe is friendly and congenial. The patio has a nice mix of larger picnic type tables and smaller 4 person ones. This is a group friendly spot.

I also knew I found the right place as there was a Duval van parked next to the side patio.

As you enter, there is a dart room on your left. The tiny bar is off to your right. The bar only seats about 8. The rest appears to be dinning areas.

The crowd is a nice mix of students, business folks and regulars. I bet this changes a bit on weekends.

The service was friendly, attentive but not hovering. I liked that they knew the menu.

24 regular taps, 6 rotating taps including a cask option. 14 Belgian style bottles (Monday is Belgian night with a nice discount) and 16 craft bottles and 6 BMC bottles add to your choices. I like the emphasis on Belgians and TX crafts. I think any beer person will find about 60 percent of their offerings are quality

Note they have a massive scotch selection and even offer flights (sampler trays). It is an impressive list!

The food menu is fairly large and should hold a few choices for just about anyone. I thought my shrimp tacos were a smidgen above average due to the perfectly ripe avocado and the corn-black bean salsa.
