“great food and staff”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

My sister and I ate here Memorial Day weekend. The two girls who served us were absolutely great, friendly and attentive and knew the menu quite well. The food was excellent and the portions were large. Enjoyed the people watching and although I am two hours away, hope to go back soon to enjoy other menu items.

“Nice setting, good beer selection, food average at best”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

They have a good variety of beers on tap and nice outdoor seating at the main crossing area of Decatur (bars/restaurants on every corner). But that is where the good ended for me. I had a brisket sandwich - the roll was less than fresh, and the meat would have qualified for 'where's the beef'. There just wasn't much of it. Lady had steak sandwich - she said the flavor was good but it was not hot. Neither were her fries or my tater tots (a mistake to order the tots). Service was ok - and.. did I mention they have selection of beers of tap? Otherwise, try one of the ones across the street.

“Good bar food”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

Really nice chicken sandwiches and burgers along with a great selection of brews. Very inviting atmosphere with outdoor seating right on the main plaza in Oakhurst. Seems very popular with the locals and I can see why.

“Great local hangout with excellent patio/bar/food”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

the U Joint, as it's known by locals, is a great community hangout. My directions to my residence always include the Universal Joint, as most people know where it is. It has a wonderful patio, and the community congregates there in early evenings when the weather is nice (and sometimes when it's not) - bringing kids, significant others, friends, or solo - everyone is welcome here. The menu is creative and beyond what you would expect from a neighborhood bar. This is a great place to get a local beer and sit on the patio and just people watch. You'll have a great seat to the focal point of the diverse and friendly community of Oakhurst!

“Great neighborhood hangout”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

This is a GREAT place to hang out especially if the weather is nice and you can sit outside. Lots of fun, interesting people and the food is good. It is on a corner so it is a great place to people watch.
