First, this is a waterfront bar where the drinks are served out of red plastic cups reminiscent of Pizza Hut and most everything else (including wine) is given to you in a can. If you are looking for an upscale establishment, this is not the...More

Held a going away gathering here for a friend. The drinks are delicious, and the food is pretty good, too.

The Rusty Knot is a dive bar that looks like it should be a 1960's sailor hang out in New Orleans. Super kitschy. Fish tanks, boar's head on the wall, 60's furniture. You come here for a mid-afternoon drink and relaxing conversation with friends. The...More

It's not an easy place to get to since it's all the way on the West side. Liked that it has a lounge area, which is good for a group, and nice relaxing layout. Find their drink prices very reasonable and they have a limited...More

Drank too many picklebacks...Mac saved the day (night). Thank you Mac - you are a superstar. The bar...is fun: good cocktails. Don't advise the picklebacks, though.

I made the mistake of having pickle backs. They had me so sick the next day! This place is right on the west side highway. It has a dive bar feel with one pool table.

This place is great, it has cool beachy decor, really friendly bartender and lovely food. Loved the atmosphere, juke box and drinks selection. You have to try the 'pickle back' shot for the experience!

Decor is a little 70's Long Island basement with dark wood paneling. It's small and crowded on a Sunday night but that is what makes it fun! Drinks are expensive but really good. Service is slow, the 2 bartenders have a few too many conversations...More

Could be a nice local bar but it takes a while to get served due to the small crowded bar who mostly order cocktails meaning service is slow. Bit of a frat bar so if you don't mind being bumped around by drunken people then...More
