“Typical hole in the wall bar that had bad service and a bad smell inside!”
Reviewed March 25, 2008

For the location of this tavern, you would think it would be pretty good, nestled in with all types of good restaurants and neat stores. It sits on the main road in this up and coming town outside the city. What it amounts to is a bad smelling standard run of the mill bar with awful service and bad food with not so good creations. The best thing in here are the 10 plasma TVs on the walls playing sports. The bar is pretty nice but the rest of the place is like a dive. The menu is a mess of hot dogs and other weird selections that taste bad. The service is so slow, it took us an hour for a lunch on a Sunday when the place was dead. The prices are a joke too. Do yourself a favor, unless you are dragged here to get a drink, don't bother. Oh plus they don't take credit cards forcing yu to visit the local ATM outside the back door that charges outrageous fees. Skip this one!
