Nice bar, good pours, friendly atmosphere and great wings! It's a good place to meet up with friends, maybe watch a game and enjoy a few hours out!

If you are looking for an off the beaten path beer and wings joint, this is the spot for you! Definitely a no thrills kind of place if that is what you're looking for.

Dumpy Dive Bar,every thing is either broken, or worn out, or at least dirty. Like 6 TV's with nothing but Sports on constantly. Scary patrons at the bar. That being said....It's about the Food, in particular the wings! You gotta have the "Doobs". To die...More

I've been looking for a place to go in North Haven when I come down on Fridays on the scoot (or even the truck) and I've finally found it. Cozy bar area, friendly and attentive bar keepers, and good chow. People rave about the wings,...More

Typical bar, tables are waaaaay to close to the TV, that broadcast all different sporting events. Basic bar menu with daily specials and some nice local beers on tap. It's a fun place to go to visit and watch a game.

Get the Doob wings. Also the quesadilla are great and burgers are massive and good. Good neighborhood bar. The bartenders are attentive and pour a good drink.
