Lots of fun memorabilia on the walls and ceiling and fun games and things to do. They've got a beer pong table, darts, foosball, fun electronic games, trivia night, and all sorts of other stuff to keep you entertained. The outdoor patio is nice, and there's almost always a great group of people there. I've had some of their food,... More

A college bar, situated perfectly between Ft. Sanders and campus. Despite the unassuming presence it delivers a big punch! Don't let the corn hole and dart boards fool you, their kitchen can push out some tasty treats. Great prices, delicious food, good service. Personal favorite to get on Sunday Fundays - the tater tots with cheese, sour cream, and bacon,... More

This place is a local pestilence. I have seen my share of fun dive bars and college bars, and this place just doesn't measure up. It's a big fat failure. Here's the problem: The place is dull. How can a bar filled with drunk college kids be so damn lame? The food was greasy and gross. My friend got to... More

The waitress took my card number and ran it and wrote in her own tip (unauthorized). BBB now has them as a zero rating. Old broken down tables, musty beer smell, overpriced food, and rude workers. I didn't tip and even told them why and they ripped me off...

Tried this place out yesterday. Don't waste your time. We walked in and we weren't acknowledged by the bartender but we saw people seated and eating outside so we went out there. Waited over 15 minutes for service ( so we thought) a server or food runner came out to deliver there food,as we still sit and wait,eventually my sister... More

Fun college atmosphere with great drink prices. Probably one of the best burgers under $5 that I've ever had.
