No atmosphere. Cook thought ham was corned beef. Only thing this place is good for is it's a locals joint.

The menu was limited. I ended up having a burger, which was okay. The waitress was awful. She had an attitude that made us feel as if we were bothering her. The drinks took forever. She never asked if we wanted another and never did bring the requested water to one of us. Of course, we didn't get any water... More

Went to Idle Hour with some friends for drinks. Good band playing called Fiasco. My husband went up to the bar to get me a drink and was completely ignored by the bartender. The bar had people, but not that busy. We left after two drinks and went elsewhere for food. Didn't want to inconvenience the bartender for a menu!

We went there for a sort of easy dinner because we'd gone a few years back with friends and had forgotten how drab and mundane the Idle Hour is. The place is sort of old looking and very noisy.

Although there is are tables to eat at, the bar is the scene here. The food is good but the bar is fun and very local. Bands on weekends, leagues and regulars is what the Idle Hour is all about.
