One of the longest running saloons in Buffalo. How it survived through the ups and downs of it’s location is truly admirable. Friendly staff, good prices and good food in a very interesting and historical part of our city.

Playing darts with my sister and dad and a server walked into us, then claimed that we were in the way. Told us to leave. Had to leave full beers...that we paid for. Very disappointing. Never again.

What a great place to go before the Sabre’s game. Friendly, down-to-earth crowd. Friendliness was encapsulated in an old building; service was excellent; parking was great as there was quick and easy access to the game, we enjoyed cocktails, stuffed banana peppers and wings. It...More
