Great college bar

It's been a long time since we were here, but it is one of those "generations have come her to drink, eat and talk kind of college town atmospheres.

Its a college bar! With a few locals down stairs. If they don't know you then you can forget any kind of prompt service. The bar down stairs has a cool old school vibe, but the bar set up was an afterthought and makes it awkward to order.

Food is not bad , service is either great or sucks . Most of the time our service has been pretty good but once or twice they seemed to be stoned or drunk . Burgers are good , kids like the chicken strips but this is mainly a college hang out as its just down the road from campus .

Terrible service. I'm pretty certain the waitress each time (different one) was under the influence of something. If I were in college, I might find this place charming in a twisted sense.

Fave Dive bar....this is the type of place you see in your mind's eye when you think college pub. Downstairs is great. Love the Carpeted walls.....oh I miss it so! I'm so hittin' this place when I am in town again.
