Fun balcony and lively place to watch the football games if you don't want to buy a ticket to pack in the Vaught! Fairly good selection of liquor, beer and wine and great service. Hamburgers, onion rings, tenders and other snack foods. Fun place!

Live party band. Good crowd. Cold beer. Outside porch hang out area. Good time. Crowded to get to bar tenders - but that's part of the fun.
