“Overcharge & rip off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Been going here for years, recently they have been trying to overcharge every chance they get. Ordered a single Jack & coke they charged for a double, said i ordered it (happened twice a week apart with different bartenders). Went with group, added drinks to friends tab. Great place if they wouldn't try and rip you off.

“Neat place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We went for lunch at this bar and grill. Our food was great! We had great bartender who was our server also. The bar has some original features of the old time saloon. Evenings are different it is more of a bar atmosphere with live bands and DJs. Overall nice place.

“Amazing beer list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We ended up going to Showboat because my husband saw a sign for Dogfish head beer. We were surprised on the beer selection! If you like beer I highly recommend you check this place out. Plus they have shuffle board which is always fun.

“Nice bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Your basic neighbor bar where you can sit and relax. Staff friendly with fast service. Drinks were a little pricey. It was quiet when we were there. Older bar but clean. I never saw a lobster tank machine before.
