Went here recently to watch a game with friends. This has to be one of the worst bars I've been to. It seemed like everyone in there smoked, including the bartender/food runner. The floors were sticky and there's no music unless someone uses the jukebox. It's also pretty dark inside. We had a pitcher of cheap beer and some wings.... More

The drinks are great, the food is great. Staff is fast and friendly. Beer is fresh with a lot to choose from, new beers every month. The best wings in Tampa!

The prices are excellent, and can even get better with "The Wall of Foam" and their specials. They have an amazing selection of beers on tap, and an insane amount in bottle form. Just ask for the...

This establishment should be shut down. It's really dirty and after drinking \ eating there we have got sick both times. The bartender makes up his own prices as they go along. I purchased a drink and the person next to me paid 3 dollars less. I asked him about it and he said they can change prices and charge... More
