Good time

The food is very good, the service is solid, and the music is enjoyable. The acoustics need a little improving but overall it's good for a fun night out

They have good food -- good music -- good wines and beer -- cocktails lack a bit -- it is a good vibe and lots of fun -- can get crowded -- always have had fun here

We knew that the place would be noisy. But we didn't know it would take 1 1/2 hours to get our meals! The salads and drinks came in time, but the entrees, when they did come - the meat dishes - were raw! Two of us had asked for medium rare, not raw. They took them away, but I refused... More

We had to stay in town an extra day due to a snow storm on the mountains. We called tons of places looking for a place open on Christmas day that wasn't a fancy buffet. We found this bar. The food was good. We both had hamburgers, mine was a veggie burger. The beer selection is small. No draft beer... More

When was the last time you had the opportunity to watch two people get it on while you're trying to relax and catch up on the day's events? Welcome to Charlie Browns; where the wait staff treats you like your homeless, the management does nothing and the experience is anything but relaxing. Accuse you of trying to get a free... More

This place had so much character & was comfortable like an old favorite sweater. Their food was good, the drinks were better, the atmosphere/ambiance was the best. No longnecks... More

Well, if you think smoking is banned in restaurants think again. we sat outside under a permanent ceiling with screened-in walls, and yes, you bet...smoking! couldn't believe it. and even the WAITER was smoking....in between taking orders and checking on customers, he took puff after puff. unbelievable. absolutely stunning disrespect.

We had dinner and drinks Sunday night following my sister's wedding. Our party of 16 was seated immediately and right next to the piano. The piano man John was wonderfully talented, funny, and friendly. He spotlighted the happy couple (my sister and new hubby) and kept us all singing and laughing. Samantha was our waitress and was AMAZING! She remembered... More
