Still my favorite place when I go to the Soo locks. We were there for Halloween weekend this year and Ohhhh what hoot. The staff did a fabulous job keeping everyone happy. I don't think I have ever met a grumpy person in this bar...😁...they could update their bathrooms tho.More

We stopped in on a Saturday early evening before heading to a Soo Locks dinner cruise, the waitress/bartender was very pleasant and personable. The Moscow Mule is to die for! This bar is walking distance from the Lock area hotels and motels. This is definitely...a bar and I would not think it's a good fit for small children but for adults it's a nice atmosphere. The only drawback that we could see is they do not take any debit or credit cards but they do provide an on-site ATM.More

This is a hometown bar, bring your own food or order from takeout menus from inside. Friendly place.

This bar is a block off Portage on the way you get into town. Stopped by for a drink after dinner - just checking out the local places. Very helpful, pleasant and prompt staff. Bar has cool, vintage ice boxes - yes, I said ice...boxes - which have been converted for modern refridgeration. Neat old back bar also. Nice place to stop in for a refreshment.More

Great drinks - reasonably priced. Great service. Friendly and efficient staff. Fun bar atmosphere and FREE popcorn. Always a fun stop for Happy Hour or a night out. Katey runs the place like she's been doing it her whole life.
