Good Bar Food & Drink

Stopped in with a large group of friends (23 people) for lunch. We took up about one third of the seats! Despite the size of the group, drink and food service was reasonably quick and the food was good - typical bar food.

If you like stoners and drunks this is the place for you. Lake Erie perch may not be Lake Erie perch. Priced at 27 dollars a pound with heavy batter, oil that needs to be changed was too much for me. Maybe your experience will be better. Beware of the guy who sneezes in his hand and then uses the... More

We are seasonal locals and this place has the best pizza and the little bar atmosphere we like. Cold beer and friendly service.

When I'm in the area, this is always just referred to by my friends as Food Beer rather than Catawba Inn. Really good burger here with fries. I would definitely go back for another.

I've been going here for years. I really enjoy this place for lunch or just early in the day because when they have a band, this place is.....LOOOOOOOUD!!!! Anyway, they've 86'd many menu items, including their jumbo clams which is very disappointing. Still have great clam chowder and I did rather enjoy the Dino sub. I agree with some of... More

A favoriite of locals, it's plenty friendly for visitors. Don't expect much. Good burgers, cold beer, and it's cheap.

Good food and great fun. We go here every year. Everyone is friendly, the service is great and prices are reasonable. It's fun to talk with people who are visiting the area and those who live in the area..

Sure it's a dive by some peoples standards but it does not pretend to be anything other than that. The patio is a great place to have fun with your friends or meet new ones. Yes the bathrooms are not polished marble with an attendant but they serve their purpose. I do travel with a bunch of men on a... More
