Being the optimist that I am, I should've known this would not turn out good when the waitress greeted us and immediately said " hope you're not in a hurry- it's going to be at least an hour."

This is truly a locals hang out. Big bar with entertainment on the weekends. Good bar food especially the burgers. The service could be better.
