“Good Eats & Great Entertainment”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

this place serves good food, and has a varied menu. The Thursday evening we were there, they had a piano player playing some good blues. He was very entertaining. the food was served hot, and promptly. This is also a late evening place to go and be entertained. Prices are reasonable. Would definitely go again if in the area.

“Check your ears at the door.”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The food is ok for pub food but if you are going for the entertainment be prepared for a small room with large speakers and lots of bass.. Not out bag of tea..

“Best music venue!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Always great live entertainment - usually two bands, up front and in the back room. Extremely reasonable prices and courteous staff. Visit the back room to see the slugs from John Dillon's target practice. Take home a SNI souvenir t-shirt or other cool gear. Oldest bar in Indiana. Best night spot!

“Blues at its best”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

awesome wait staff, very reasonable cover charge - and epic blues bands in there! I caught Jimmy J and band over there, it was an epic aural-gasmic experience!

Drinks were cheap, and the wait staff wasn't overly pushing the tables - but they came at the 'right' time, all the time. Really cool bar - and I got a T SHIRT!!!
