  • Its a good place to hang out, drink and play some blackjack. They have good live band and different themes every week. Its crowded like a pub needs to be. It feels good to be there to have some fun.
  • Unless you get a bottled beer drinks aren't very strong. The bands are generally good to listen to. Friday nights are the best times to go. The usual amount of 'creepers' hang here as they do any bar.
  • Nice place, gets wild on the weekends! Met a nice married white lady She gave me a throat job and tossed my salad in her van in the parking lot, didn’t even bother to remove her wedding ring! Friendly staff and good,strong drinks. Definitely recommend!
  • If you can get past the 45+ year old men wearing Affliction T-shirts and bedazzled jeans it’s not a bad bar. Great bands and it’s very easy to pick up women here, just keep your standards low because most have muffin tops and bad teeth.
  • Music was supposed to start at 9:30 but didn't start until close to 10:30 which was quite disappointing since the band only played for a short time. The Pearl Jam tribute band was awesome and they should have them come for a whole night of playing. Maybe more people would have stuck around...the place cleared out shortly after they stopped playing.
