First I have read reviews that focused on not getting a soda or noise level. Locals recommended we try Handlebar PUB! We did eat inside since outside had a wait list. Inside has some cool decor, for example “tap” handles lined the ceiling. Multi TV’s...More

Knowledgeable staff with a good beer selection and good food. Would give 5 but prices keep inching up and portions are small.

I really like the outside seating. The menu sounds delicious, but the execution was somewhat lacking. Roasted pepper was almost raw and the sauce was grainy. The beer selection, however, is fabulous!

I like coming to the Handlebar bc of the patio area. The menu is short but everything I have ordered in the past has been pretty good. Wide range of beers to choose from. The patio area is cute, covered with lights and funny chotchkies...More

My friends and I sat “under the stars” and a nice AZ evening in their outdoor seating. Healthy comfort food - above average pub food with an amazing twist. Ask for a T-shirt or bandana - their putting in a new order.

Doubt it. It's not that kind of place. Think "boot-scootin' boogie".

Yes, they have an area inside the bar(at the far end) for a small band or group and when we were there last the group was good. I do not know the entertainment schedule, but you could call or check their web site.
