If a person is a true foodie, then Nobi isn't going to be great for them... but to the average person used to bar food, it is much better...
BUT again... the best reason to go to Nobi is the tap list. I'm surprised to hear about one of their bar staff acting that way. I am a fairly regular patron and have found all of them to be friendly and pretty well versed on their beers and styles.
I'm a fan of the Pork Sandwich.. with extra meat and a fried egg. I get it almost every time. I love to add plenty of Sriracha.. probably more than most.
Anway, Nobi was/is a huge step up for the Webster/Clear Lake area in regards to craft beer. A few new places are opening around and that is a good thing. I do look forward to the day Nobi can expand and can add some noise suppressing materials in the room. A few good wall hangings at the right places could make a big difference.
Overall, Nobi is an amazing addition to the area. Charles, Channing and crew have done a great job and I am glad they are open to serve me deliciousness in liquid and solid forms.
