“Good drinks, but not the friendliest crowd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Can't go wrong with a good bartender, but the crowd wasn't too friendly; too busy karaoke! haha
Haven't tried the food, but it smelled good!

“Tatty, Smelly, Cheap Beer”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

If the place weren't so big, I would call it a dive bar -- not necessarily a bad thing. This one is in a strip mall at a nondescript suburban intersection.

This one has devoted a section of the sidewalk in front of the place to a dirty and ugly smoking area. After one navigates the smoking area and manages to find the front door, one is treated to an aroma reminiscent of a backed up sewer. The smell doesn't extend too far into the place.

Not a place that I would choose for a date or for the family. The inside is tatty. I'm not squeamish but I had that sense that I didn't really want to touch anything. Some of the patrons overly inebriated. One fellow was stumbling around.

Didn't try the food. Server was fine but nothing special.

“Great Local Bar and Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

This is a neighbor bar and grill that has surprisingly good food. It is a regular lunch venue on Mondays and Tuesdays for a group of us.

If you have never tried "Irish Nachos", this is the place!! A delicious and completely new approach to Nachos. Fair warning...if you order regular nachos or a burrito, be sure to order the small size or you will be overwhelmed.

On Mondays and Tuesdays, Karen will be your server and she is as good as the food. Tell her I said, hi"
