“Meh.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Good selection of beers on tap but the bar hygiene is somewhat lacking. It is generally boring the two or three times I went to have a beer passing by. The food I saw looked typically Chile's like, greasy bar food.

“Basic Pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

We went in here for a quick lunch and both got salads and drinks (beer and wine). It was fine. We were there after normal lunch hours so it wasn't very crowded. Service was good. Nothing special, though.

Great selection of beer! Burgers were perfectly seasoned and fries were fried just right! Waitstaff friendly and helpful!

“Great dive bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Fun place with cheap drinks and good specials. They have trivia nights and cater to a largely 20-something clientele. It's a great break from all of the "upscale" bars in the area.
