After roasting all day in the blinding sun, this was the best place. I would have never found this place if not for my guide. Timmy and the staff were so friendly and nice. I could have stayed longer if I didn't have to fish in the morning.

Live bands every Friday and during summer on Saturdays. It has character and great bartenders, pool tables, and this is where the locals go. If you're a non-smoker, go somewhere else. They do have "smoke eaters" though. The place is dark and cold, just how I like it. Crowd is usually in their 30-50's. No teens or just-turned-21 kiddos! (YAY!)... More

Great local bar! This place has a little bit of everything and a little bit of everyone! Great drink prices, pool table, and local live music! This place has a great chill vibe ad welcomes everyone! however if you don't like smoke don't go here! The bar quickly feels up with smoke as the evening goes on!
