“I guess if you're a college student, this is okay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I've been to this place maybe 3 times- twice for drinks and once for dinner. I don't think I'd go again if I had a choice. It gets incredibly noisy, the food is bar food (mediocre at best), and two times I was there people grinding against each other to the music- no kidding- next to the bar. The last time we were there was after the fall wine festival. I'd definitely avoid this next time- it was packed with drunk people. Of course, the other two times I'd been there, it was (or wound up being) equally packed with drunk people.

When the bar has been quiet- when it's early on the weekends- it's not so bad for a beer. But the food doesn't change and the service was about the same- slow, hard to get a drink, and aimed at the 20-somethings. But the funny part is, the times I've been there, there aren't many 20-somethings.

“It's A Bar...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I enjoyed the grilled chicken bites. It was just enough for a late night meal. Even though there was a group of us, the waitress was efficient and pleasant. I didn't hear any complaints.
