“Authentic local place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

This was a nice and unpretentious restaurant with a great local flavor. The kind of place when you walk in everyone at the bar has cowboy hats and boots, the juke box is playing Tim McGraw, etc.

Dining room was very friendly and food was decent.

“don't believe the hype”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

This place sucks!!! The service sucks! The food sucks! They can't even get a to go order right! And they don't give a crap about any of this. It is a bunch of old bitty's that drink from the time the place opens till their shift is over. If they make it that long. I will never go there again!

Good, but nothing fancy. Great atmosphere, but service can be slow and the food is just ok.

“Best local "Western" bar & grill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

The Pour House has a very genuine "rustic" Western atmosphere to it. It is in a building that was probably built about 100 years ago, with furnishings that were probably added over the next 50 years and haven't changed since then other than for some flat screen TVs.

As with other restaurants in Carbondale, the prices are rather high by typical small town standards. The food is mostly pretty standard -- not particularly "innovative" -- but it is hot and fresh and the portions are generous. There is a good selection of beer on tap and also all other types of liquor.

The place attracts a wide variety of patrons, some of whom are pretty seedy, but that is consistent with the atmosphere of the place. Service is informal and varies from adequate to very good.

“Love this place & the food, too.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

This bar / restaurant is a breath of fresh air. We always go back here when in the area. It is a local place with real people. Good food and drink. They always greet us and seem genuinely interested in our business. We had Taco / Enchilada plate and a cobb salad. Both were prepared fresh and worth the stop. It seems to be the locals watering hole, since most visitors greeted each other on a first name basis. My kind of place.
