Loved going to this small college bar with some friends! Very awesome feel to the place, and many pool tables and places to sit. The music was great, and well as the service.

Its a college bar! With a few locals down stairs. If they don't know you then you can forget any kind of prompt service. The bar down stairs has a cool old school vibe, but the bar set up was an afterthought and makes it awkward to order.

Food is not bad , service is either great or sucks . Most of the time our service has been pretty good but once or twice they seemed to be stoned or drunk . Burgers are good , kids like the chicken strips but this is mainly a college hang out as its just down the road from campus .
