Delicious red beers in the morning and a great patio to enjoy the view. The food was typical bar fare, but tasty, and the beer was cold. Laid back and easy breezy.

Place is dirty and small like depression and stale beer. The "bouncers" are some type of secret service, swat team, wannabe lames. Could not bring my bottle of water in because being hydrated is frowned upon. Skip this turd on fire and go elsewhere.
