First, let me say that this place SAYS they have Happy Hour but, when you get there its a totally dfiferent story and I honestly, have no idea how they have gotten away wit it for soo many years. If its Happy Hour, why is a TOP SHELF MARGARITA $6.50 plus 2.00 for an extra THEN they added another $1.00... More

I stopped in here with some friends after Rock the Garden at the Walker. It was fairly crowded and our waitress rounded us up two for ones before the special ended. I will give her props for pushing us to order before the deadline, but I feel like you just get two smaller glasses. We order some nachos which don't... More

Liquor Lyle's came as a recommendation from a local friend, and we're glad to have taken his advice. Good wait staff and an original watering hole setting, along with late night menu and generous offering of beer and spirits. Big wings, tasty chili+nachos and also tried the mini corn dogs, all great late night fare. Wish we could have gotten... More

2 for 1 on all drinks 9-11 every night and all dat til 6. Expect crowds Fridays and Saturdays and game days! Food is decent bar food - would definitely recommend the fried whole chicken wings and the all day breakfasts!

My husband and I went here to eat one evening. We are 55 years old, and my husband's hair has gone completely gray. Put it this way.....we absolutely look our age. However, the waitress with the dark hair and dred locks carded us and informed us that because my husband's license was expired, they legally could not serve us. She... More

I agree it is truly a dive bar! But the last 5 times I have been there the service has been horrible! The waitress are slow and really mean! Also the can't get a order right to save their lives and if by chance they do get the food right it will be raw or burnt!

I used to love this place. Seriously, I went at least twice a week over the summer. But after my last visit in August, I vowed to never step through LL's doors again. Basically, my friend and I (who were, I guarantee you, just barely beyond tipsy) were refused service by the rudest waitress I have ever encountered. We immediately... More

Dive bar, great jukebox, excellent food. The tuna melts are awesome. They do not skimp on the portions and there is usually some kind of happy hour going on (2-for-1's on all drinks, even top shelf liquor). If you like divey bars with great bar food, you'll dig Lyle's.
