Awesome drinks! They always have specials and they have the best prices in the area. Buffalo Dip is a must try! The staff is really fun.

Second Chance is a great bar that knows it's a bar. They have a good draft beer selection, but they take pride in the number of beers they offer by the bottle. They have a couple pool tables (that don't give change) and some cornhole boards out back. Most of their food falls squarely in the pub grub category, but... More

This place is a riot! We went on a Tuesday night a week before Xmas – they had karaoke. Some could sing, some couldn’t, but by the end of the evening, no one cared. The bartender was good, the steamed shrimp were huge and juicy, the drinks were generous, and they had Guinness on tap. Here is a sample of... More

We keep going back to this bar. It is a local bar with good food at good price. Not an elegant atmosphere, just basic bar atmosphere. Not a touristy place, lots of locals.

It had been a while since we visited Second Chance during Happy Hour, so we stopped by on a Friday afternoon for drinks, food and some familiar faces. Much to our surprise, most of the familiar faces were gone and the new staff were seriously lacking in people skills. The "What's on Tap" board had a beer I wanted to... More

Was looking for a place to watch the Orioles on a Saturday. They are one of the few bars that have a Saturday happy hour. $2 miller lite I also had the beer battered onion rings that were outstanding. This is a throwback to the bars I grew up in., lots of wood, not a chain that the people in... More

We were in town with a soccer team for a tournament. We needed a place that could handle our group of 30. They were great. They placed us in a side room of our own. The staff kept the drinks and food coming. They were very organized. This is an old local place. Good beer and drinks. The food was... More

Ended up here because the Thai restaurant nearby was closed. Ended up having a good meal – once we got served. It was “trivia night” and lots of locals were there, so we got ignored for a long time. When the server finally noticed us, she was very apologetic and was very attentive thereafter. There are lots of beers to... More

I happened to come across a review of this place that mentioned its selection of craft beers, so I sought it out. It is really kind of hidden in a strip mall, and had I not sought it out, I certainly never would have encountered it . . . but I'm so glad I did. It had a great neighborhood... More
