First off, not sure how this is listed as an attraction, it's just an awful bar with horrible servce. Rude female staff that only pay attention to the male custumers. A friend even admitted he had much better service till I, a female showed up. Run their clocks way fast so deals end early. Music is way to loud, even... More

Rude,unfriendly,crude staff. Customer doing things in public they shouldn't be doing and the staff didn't care. I stopped in with a friend to kill some time before dinning elsewhere. Never again. Not even good for a quick drink. Go elsewhere.

I tend to go there almost everything Thursday night when they have dollar drafts (a select few). The beer is alright, mixed drinks are good, and the food (I always get the chicken tenders) is always hot. The bartenders are great and manage to keep up with the customer demand. BBC has 2 pool tables, free beer pong and music... More

food is terrible and the assistant manager on the weekends has no reason holding that title this place is a joke...
