“The Legend”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Are you kidding. If you like live music and you haven't been here something is wrong with you. The list of bands that have played this place is unbelievable. It's a must visit place. Hurry and get there before the condo creeps decide to knock it down

“Bruce”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Ok, so, it's a little Honky Tonk, but fun nonetheless. Be aware that at least when we went the cover was not insignificant. It costs a pretty penny to touch the hem of Bruce's garment.

“History and fun”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

This is of course where Broos (Bruce Springsteen, if you're not from around here) got started. That alone would make it history - but a lot of other really great rock'n'roll musicians have played here (& still do). It isn't elegant; the prices are OK, but not great, and it's (still) really loud. It is well worth a visit, and I'm glad we went a couple of years ago (TripAdvisor is making me select August 2011, but it was longer ago that we went there). We took a young relative (he was about 22 at the time) - he loved it, too.
