Great place to have drinks. Bartender was very attentive. This is one of my must stop at places every time I'm in OC. Fun to people watch and they have live bands.

Yearly trip to Baltimore includes a trip to the ocean "HON". stopped at one of the old places on the boardwalk. I was the designated driver so I had a refreshing ginger ale. Daughter and sister both had their famous bloody Mary's, I did have a sip and they were excellent. Must say though that the music was way too... More

We did not eat here. Drinks and dancing. The bartenders were friendly (Ryan) not only him, but just saying. Nice atmosphere for nightlife

The bartender was a liar. He told us he'd been there for years then turned right around and told two girls that he just started and didn't know how to make the drink they wanted. The drinks are very small, so unless you just want a beer, don't go in.

Caution: This is NOT a place for kids. The names of the drinks are for adults only. And be prepared to be carded at the door if you look anything under 25. Despite that we liked the ambiance of the place. Although the drink was a bit sweet for our liking, it was a fun stop.

Face control staff didn't allow me to enter this place, they said that my international student ID and my Russian driver license is not appropriate to enter (but the information that they need is doubled in every document) . I really got their point, but they said that I made it in garage somewhere, and they bend (!!!) my documents.... More

I have been coming here for almost 20 years and they have the best bartenders, and the best Live bands this side of the Chesapeake Bay. The bartenders, and management are great. They really do an excellent job in getting some great live rock bands at this venue.

We thought we would give this place a try again. Bad move. We were met at the door by two bouncers who seemed angry about being there. We were told to sit where we wanted. After sitting there for ten minutes with no one waiting on us the bartender finally screamed that they don't have a waite staff and that... More
