This place does have some charm--it's nestled in the Old Northeast neighborhood of St. Petersburg--but essentially, it's a sports bar that caters to young men who come here to drink and watch the latest game on the big screen TVs. If you don't fall into that category, the waitstaff will tolerate you, but the food here just costs too much given the extremely casual atmosphere of the place. If you want a really nice on lunch or dinner, there are lots of other choices with much better service and atmosphere just a few blocks away. P.S. Don't put a nickle in the jukebox to play music that is not to the liking of 20-something and 30-something males, because if you do, they and the management will shame you into leaving earlier than you had anticipated.
