“Never again!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

You may be tempted to stop in here because it is the only place in town that is open late. Do not. We read reviews on several other sites like yelp.com and google review all talking about the drunken owner. We never believed it. This is ridiculous-the owner sits in the corner drinking all night then, gets extremely angry. He becomes a belligerent little man who we witnessed argue with patrons.....as he FOLLOWED THEM TO THEIR HOTEL AND MADE THREATS!! (Terrifying.) This was all because he didn't like when tourists asked for a certain song to play. (American Pie by Don McLean if you're brave & want to try it out for yourself.) The bartender was a very nice guy and I hope he can get work in a better place-he deserves better than that "tavern". The dj is a grumpy 60+ year old man who prefers you leave him to his play list of what was cool in 2002. Find a better place-it's sad that this kind of a place in in a tourist town. Clearly no one knows what hospitality is.

“If you are looking for a place after 9, this place is horrible!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

The owner will not allow certain songs to play with the DJ. DJ will recommend to give tips to get songs played, then you request songs and they don't get played. What a joke! Highly do not recommend!

“Especially enjoyable in nice weather when you can dine outside”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

We always enjoy grabbing a table in nice weather and getting a sandwich and beverage or just a beverage while we people watch. The seating sits up on a mezzanine type flooring from the sidewalk so you can look out over the sidewalk. Right on Main Street. Service is good as is the food.

“Has Character, Lacks Service”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

This is what I would call a "townie bar" or "hole in the wall". Busy night had only bartender on, no wait staff to speak of. A very grumpy middle aged woman would sometimes get up from her seat to help out, I can only ascertain that she was the owner/manager of some sort. Regardless, she was more of the typical small tourist town bar owner than friendly frankenmuth host. As in "oh yes I will take your money because we would not exist without tourists, but Id prefer if you just sent a check as a donation instead of coming into my bar because I actually hate tourists, yes this makes no sense but that is how we do.". Im sure Ill stop in again next time I am bar hopping in the town, but certainly would not go out of my way to do so. And another note, the bathroom was offensive. Even for a man.
