“Expensive drinks, great lunch specials”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Our server was friendly and brought us water right away and pointed out the lunch special which was a burger and fries for $6.50. We all ordered that and 3 out of 4 ordered the bloody Mary since it was advertised as the best anywhere. The drink was simply mix poured from the bottle with some cheap vodka and a pickle and olive garnish. I guess the high price of the weak drink ($6) balanced out the cheap burgers.

“Bloody Mary”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

I only stopped in for an eye opener because I saw a sign out front about them having the best bloody mary. It's not. It's just Zing Zang with lemon, olive, and pickle. They serve it in a mug so the size is okay, but it comes from a bottle. I was expecting a homemade concoction. If you're going to put a sign up-do something special. You can get a better one at the VFW down the street for half the price and while your there, buy the vets a round!!

Horrible food, slow service. Not recommended. Definitely not a place that we would visit again.

“Kind of a dive”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

Went in to eat lunch. Drinks were kind of high. I had a burger and fries, nothing special about it. My wife had the turkey club om rye and she loved it. It was huge and she ate the whole thing. Only thing that keeps it from a 4 is the price of the drinks. Would go again.

“Three Strikes and You Get a Bad Review”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

I give a restaurant a chance figuring they may be having an off day. Each time I've been to the Paradise Bar the staff was rude, service poor and food less than mediocre. However, they are still in business so somebody likes them. I won't go back.
