“Sketchy Bar”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This bar was sketchy and so were many of the people in it. The bartenders were quite rude as well. I was told by some locals you only get good service at this bar if the bartender wants to sleep with you. The atmosphere was not welcoming at all. Go to Lonigans or Kelli's, had a much better time at these places.

“Great Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

We initially went in because the sign said they had a shuffle board table and we spent the evening there. It was mostly locals but everyone was very nice. My husband played pool all night and we had a really great time.

“Ok bar...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Cold beer, descent service. Bartender kept going outside to smoke, so had to wait on occasion for the next round to be served.

“It was fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

It was a nice stop but we went for a late lunch and found out they don't serve food til after 5 p.m. but they can call a few other places and have them deliver to them. Prices were not bad for the area. Just a nice little stop to relax for a few in a classic dive bar.

“Great Dive Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

What can I say, I liked the place. Full of locals with party spirit. When I'm in Estes Park, I'll have another drink there and dodge the "Karaoke Scene" down the street. Laid back bartender never missed a beat.
