Don't like Country Music And now I know Why

We didn't know this was a country western bar and since I'm not into that it was okay. They served drinks out of plastic solo cups so not a fan of that either. I ordered a Grey... read more

We didn't know this was a country western bar and since I'm not into that it was okay. They served drinks out of plastic solo cups so not a fan of that either. I ordered a Grey Goose gimlet and got something that tasted like a tonic with a splash of grey goose. I ended up watching Humans on the... More

The last 2 times that the Sidewinders Bar was scheduled to have Country and Western music they have did away with it and scheduled other events . So you better check the night night before going there because you never know what to expect .

Friendly people and staff. Good selection of libations. No real food to mention. Poor lighting in parking lot. For a small town, it's to be expected. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

We were there last Saturday night. No cover. Though a bit run down, the environment is comfortable and the drinks are strong. The restroom is clean. A decent liquor selection is also a plus. Tanqueray Sterling and Glenlivet were surprising offerings. A couple of pool tables and darts are available for those who play. The owner and her son are... More

Besides the smell if a very bad odor, these guys can't make a simple drink. They flood the drink with alcohol which doesn't give the drink any flavor. I guess it's ok for a totally intoxicated person.
