During the street festival it was a great pit stop for a nice cold beer. Great locals to talk to and friendly staff. Pool table, shuffle board, and a stage all in one place! Check out there iPa's for some local flavor.

New owners same name. Better feel than in the past and the new owners are great people. Good beer selection/full bar. Pool table and DJs certain nights and I hear they will be doing live music in the future. Open till 2am.

New ownership may change things around. Potential for a great bar and a nice place to hang out with your friends. Give it a chance. You may like it.

If you like to play pong, shoot pool and drink beer, this is your place. Crowd changes later at night to a younger crowd and a band on the weekends

this place is filled with very young , loud, and distracting 20-30 year olds. Kinda fun on a summer night.
