Went up to the bar and some guy said I was pretty which is fine. Next thing, he's grabbing my butt and trying to grab me in front too. Asked the bartender for help and he said it's my fault. NOT OKAY. AWFUL.

Fun place to have drinks in the evening. Drinks are reasonably priced. The bar is staffed to serve, it doesn't take long to get a drink. We had fun meeting the local crowd and the band was good.

HUGE patio with a big bar in the middle of it. Lots of 6+ person booths to sit at. Inside is small, but this is obviously a summer bar to chill at. Drinks are priced about average. Jack and coke was $4.50 and a bud...More
