Everything you look for in a simple local bar. Good service, good selection and reasonable prices. A couple pool tables, a small dance floor, a little karaoke and really cool quotes on the walls. I've gone alone, with a buddy or in groups and always enjoy my visit.

Love this bar! Great bar tenders who even remember your name and your usual drink! Funny karaoke, two pool tables, and free popcorn, where could you go wrong?!

A friend of mine and I ended up here because we were looking for a place my friend could have a cigarette(I don't smoke), and we definitely were not disappointed! Our server Brittany was very friendly, engaging, and professional. Even the most minor of hiccups in our order did not deter her from staying cool, calm and collected. I had... More

The bartenders at McGarvey's were awesome! They were extremely friendly, funny, and fast. Rachel was a sweet heart, and a great bartender. Though she got busy at one point and we expected her to get flustered, she held her own and did a great job. I loved the dive bar type atmosphere, which is way more my style than a... More

Went here for Karaoke and Pool after meetings and it was great! The bartenders were fun and the atmosphere was great! And the DJ was very accepting of our karaoke, :). All in all, I'd go back again.

This is one of those "Cheers" like places. Very much a local bar, after work drinks in the early evening, and a younger local crowd at night. The drinks are well make, priced right. The staff is very efficient and friendly. The patrons are open and outgoing. Don't let the first impression coming through the door throw you. Go on... More
