Excellent wings and chicken tenders. Best and original Bar in Bristol. Thanks for being the original Restaurant and a staple in Bristol on State Street

OK, it's not quite "Cheers," but its not far from it. Regular local patrons tend to claim their same perch each visit and continue conversations from the day or week before. The wait staff are all friendly, attentive and recall one's name after a couple...of visits. Their "Chicken Fingers" are actually large, lightly breaded and perfectly cooked slices of breast meat. So far, I've always had to take some home due to the large portions.More

Ok for a quick bite, more of a local bar vibe. I ordered a mixed drink with Absolute, and actually saw the bottle, but it certainly didn't taste like Absolute!

Bartender was friendly & attentive. Beer was good & cold. Shots were generous. We had a great time! We'll have to try the food next visit.
