Older 80s decor. Several pool tables. Nicer bar area. I've heard it's a great place for a steak, but haven't tried it yet.

Yes, it looks a little iffy from the outside, but honestly it's a nice little bar & grill. Several beers on draft (domestic and craft). Prices were great and service was outstanding. If staying at one of the nearby hotels, I would give this place a shot.

In town for regional soccer tournament and stumbled upon this gem by searching what was near our hotel using tripadvisor and Yelp. So happy we found it.

First thing, you must be 21 to enter so no kids. This was surprising to us as it has a full menu. Not sure why kids can't come until a certain time.

We had a group of people who all ordered different items. All were fantastic! I did the breaded Pork tenderloin fingers. A hand breaded tenderloin cut into pieces. Delicious!
Burgers were excellent, club sandwich was too. Everyone who ordered chicken tacos said they made a good choice. We all wished they were a little more generous with the fries. The fries are steak fries and were great-they just didn't give enough.

I cannot tell a lie, we went there two nights in a row. It was excellent both nights. The first night they had a trivia contest, the second night karaoke.

Debby, our waitress, remembered what we drank and ordered from the previous night. She's super friendly and attentive. Fantastic lady!!

It is a dive bar but don't let this fool you---it's fun, the beer selection is incredible and the food is excellent. Why wouldn't you go there??
