“two words... FROSTY GOBLETS!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

We tried the place on recommendations from the hotel staff. I have to say that it was a really good decision.

First off it is a bar. The center of the room is a huge two sided bar with a poured concrete counter. They have dozens of beers, ciders, IPA's on tap and lots of bottles and booze of all shapes and sizes. The unique thing is there choice of beer mug is more of a super thick goblet that they freeze. I watched the top of my drink frost over after it was poured, so that is one cold glass.

The food was classic bar food like wings, appetizers, steak, pizza flatbreads, and sliders. It was all really good and the portions were plenty big enough for even the heartiest of eaters.

It was a little hard to locate because we drove past it. They share a driveway with the gas station next door.

Go for the beer, have a snack, and watch a little TV. You wont be disappointed.

Happy Travels!

“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

The food is ok but their isn't much of a selection . The beer is good and they have some really good ones but they come in a frozen. ( chilled) mug. On a hot desert day they can be refreshing but beer isn't supposed to be at such a cold temp. So if your a beer lover and understand that overly cold beer loses flavor ask for an unchilled mug. . Oh and the service is not very good. . I've been their before when their was no one and still took forever to get service . It's disappointing because if the waitresses were better I'd go more often .

“Great Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

We were told about this place by the Econo Lodge we were staying in Ridgecrest. Great food, cold beer. Comfortable place, lots of TV's. Enjoyed the food and beer. We will return our next trip. Good selection of items on menu, something for everyone.

“Big portions for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

This place is a hidden gem.Located near the EDD in the town. If you blink you could pass it by. The place is very casual with saw dust on the floor.Most dishes are ala cart hamburgers do not come with fries unless you order it as a side. They do also offer bottomless steak fries. The food was good and there was plenty left over for take out!

We came in for lunch and was greeted by a nice young lady, who informed us to sit where we liked..we sat by a window seat and was greeted w a very sweet server..she got our drinks, brought peanuts and we love the fact we can just toss them on the floor..our waitress was marnie and she was attentive and sassy to boot..my husband was teasing her relentlessly, and she gave it right back..food was great and server was excellent..we definitely will be coming back..good job schooners..
