This is a fantastic place if you like your rock music loud!! Always a friendly welcome. Good selection of beers and spirits accompanying a plethora of heavy rock classics on the dukebox.

The jukebox rules, and the staff is cool as could be. I was traveling alone and made friends immediately. If you like rock and metal, I could not recommend this more. They stay open later than most bars in the area, so that’s a bonus....More
