Great locals bar. Super friendly and very funny barkeep. Great selection of beers on tap. Good place to eat and drink solo and meet locals. Very good chicken wings. Easy access and ample parking. Close to the airport hotels for the travelers.

I wasn't given my receipt before she just swiped my credit card, making it so I wasn't able to refute the total beforehand. Apparently the employees will put... More

The beer is alright, mixed drinks are good, and the food (I always get the chicken tenders) is always hot. The bartenders are great and manage to keep up with the customer demand. BBC has 2 pool tables, free beer pong and music... More
