Nice place to have lunch and sit outside in the sun on a day when the weather is nice. The food is actually really good for what is essentially a bar. No kids in the evening - it's a bar - and a college town bar at that. Try the fried green beans. And the grilled pimento cheese sandwich with green olives is amazing - even if it does sound a little weird. It's dark and loud inside, which is fine if that's the atmosphere you're looking for.

Have been here before once or twice in the span of a year (which should say something) but went here yesterday with coworkers.

I've had the BBQ pulled pork sandwich which was tiny (I thought it was a slider!) but usually order the fried chicken sandwich tossed in buffalo sauce. The chicken breast isn't very big and I always leave this place hungry. Always go for the buffalo chips as a substitute, but beware. You are always served ONE side of either potato chips, cole slaw or potato salad... if you want anything in their place you will have to pay a dollar or more for another item. The sweet tea here is not very sweet either if you like that for your drink. Sandwiches usually run between $6-$8. The place is supposedly known for its bean roll or pimento cheese sandwich if you like those things.

The decor is... well... unique. Not sure how its very "New York style" to reflect its name but that's fine. The building looks like a machine shed from the outside.

The staff has been very attentive and friendly. This place isn't horrible but isn't amazing either. The MSU athletics coach's show is broadcast from here every Monday night during football and basketball season. The place serves as one of the few bars in Murray for the college kids too.

We go here quite a bit just to hang out with friends. If you don't like college town bars with lots of college kids, you might want to head over the toms grill or something. We love this place. Its nice to have a drink and wind down for the day. The food is actually very tasty, especially the bean rolls! You have to try a bean roll. They also have good bands on the weekends. Nice outdoor seating area with plenty of room. The only drawback is the smoke. They still let people smoke in here so leave your jacket in the car :)

The food here is really good! It is very casual and part of it is a bar. We were in the no smoking section but the smell of smoke was really strong!!
