Don't know what to say... this place is a minimum-less Bar... Meaning minimum service, offering, tables, chairs etc... you almost have to bring your own mug... did I say Rude? Yes also very rude....

New ownership may change things around. Potential for a great bar and a nice place to hang out with your friends. Give it a chance. You may like it.

If you like to play pong, shoot pool and drink beer, this is your place. Crowd changes later at night to a younger crowd and a band on the weekends
