We were in search of a small dive bar in the area, and wasn't disappointed with our find/choice. Great place to grab a beer and some good grub.

Plenty of TVs with multiple games on. I could do without the Keno. Great beer selection at very reasonable prices. Menu is classic pub fare. Friendly staff. Good place to meet friends and kick back.
