I"ve been there a few times since they put in the dueling piano players upstairs and the small bar. It can get real loud from the piano players and everyone trying to sing along. Downstairs is the best place to hang out,drink beer and throw darts. I dont think the piano players will last another year.

Grease, grease and more grease. Lots of atmosphere though if you like English pub kind of places.

Great dive bar, but closed. The new owner's are calling in the Swingin Door and it's not as good. Plus, no Habanero Hamburger.
