Great place to hang with Friends

Cool little local joint with a nice patio out back. Good beer selection and good bar food. This is your typical local, no frills, hang out.

My husband and I had dinner here on a Saturday night. My youngest sister how loves a good burger has been bugging me to have dinner with her here. I had a burger with lettuce, Feta cheese and a very strong red onion. They cooked the burger just the way I like it. I asked for it rare and I... More

This place is one of a kind. If you want a night out with the guys, this can be a legit place. If you want to scare a date off, this is your place. If you want really really really hot wings or a huge burger this is the place for you. It is in the basement, so you might... More

I visited the Quarry House in it's new spot across the street the other day. It's not bad, really. I just like getting drunk and going to trivia night, really. And I happened to be in the neighborhood. I mean, it's a good spot. The space is well used, can fit a load of people, and the back patio area... More

I liked their large choice of Whiskeys and busy feel. I didn't like the small seats. Too bad the old place burned down, hopefully they will reopen soon with updated AC. It is one of those iconic places that you have to visit, after all, it used to be a Speakeasy at one point.

We walked in, seated ourselves and waited for about 10 minutes for someone to give us menus, though several members of the staff walked by while we waited. But I'm so glad we stayed. The beer selection is incredible, and the food is insane. Once our server started talking to us, he was super friendly too. The beer menu had... More

I'm not even sure why I'm bothering to review QH because we all know how amazing this place is. I love a great dive bar and this one takes the cake. I never even liked tater tots until I went here and fell in love. The last time I ate here I was on medication that made me lose my... More

I wish I had found this place in my 20s. A dive bar with Tater Tots, bar food, and a cool outside area in the back? I'll be back.

It's hard to find a better dive bar than the Quarry House. The beer menu is absolutely amazing--a huge variety. Burgers are consistently good, and this is one of the few places that always cooks to order. I'm a fan of rare burgers, and they understand the concept. Toppings are good; I particularly like the Black & Bleu and the... More

As the result of a fire in the original location, the quarry is now located in a building across the stree, but more imporatany, they are streetside. It does lend itself to a change in atmosphere, it now even boasts an outdoor seating area. Don't get too comfortable though, staff says that the basement is home and they will move... More
