I was there a few weeks ago on a Friday night. It was fine for the whole night, their beer selection isn't anything special but hey, it's a sports bar. The free popcorn was nice as well. However, at 12:30 the bartender called last call. So I got another drink. Five minutes later he starts saying they're closed. Everyone generally disregarded him since it wasn't even close to 1. He starts getting more and more aggressive and by 12:55 was screaming at everyone to get the f out. The worst part about it all was that I'd closed my tab and tipped the bartender fairly generously before any of this happened. With so many bars in the area, there are plenty more that don't treat their customers with downright contempt; I'll be sticking to those.

An unassuming bar in Amherst, this place offers some interesting food choices. In addition they offer a good choice of draft beer, locals, microbrews and large brews. For food i ordered shoestring fries with melted gorgonzola and balsamic drizzle. Creative combo that worked very well.

Perfect place to take a family or share drinks with others. Prices are reasonable, with expansive menu selection. Service is consistently good and friendly.
