“Brought me back to college life”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Stepping into a loud and bumping bar was immediately met with the familiar sensation of my feet being stuck to the ground due to spilt drinks. This place would definitely have been a fun place to visit during my college days, but it's really not a great place to be if you're over your post-college days.

“Overrated”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

4th street is one of those "been there done that" places. Sure it was ok the first time I went but I really felt no need to return (although I have returned for dinner, Xmas decorations, etc.)

FSL is way overpriced and full of either a) Bachelorette Parties, b) Post-frat party Greek kids, or c) Jersey Shore type "Guidos"

Plus I really don't feel safe down there. The very few times I've been, I've been approached by drunk/drugged-out hobos asking for money.

“Enjoyed the entire block”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Best thing was that it was in walking distance of my hotel. Enjoyed watching folks skate on the 'ice' rink. Plenty of choices for food even though most were chain restaurants. Liked that there were different choices for bars (I even went to PBR and I'm not a country music guy). Only disappointment was that the comedy club wasn't open. Worth a visit though!

“Food and fun”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

It is true that this area is commercial, loud and not very original. However, the music, energy, lights and proximity to different types of food makes for a good evening for any group. The covered street ensures no worries about weather. Not rocket science but good fun.
