As I said, a very friendly group both the staff and the patrons. Mondays they off free pool all day! This charming bar is within easy walking distance to the center of town with ample parking allowing one to stop in for a few libations and still wander the area.

The decore is comfortable and cute.

Best local bar ever! People were friendly, prices were awesome, not the usual tourist trap. Best wings, downtown, hands down! Located near the corner of Ribera and king st, close to everything, a very nice walk through the area. Just ask and bar tenders will hand you a st Augustine map and point you in the right direction.

I live in St. Augustine and wanted to stop in for a beer or a few. Sign said, "Beer cheaper than gas" which to me meant that beer would be less than $3.75 (at the time) a gallon. They serve small mugs (about 10 oz) which were $3 each! I think they did have one or two that were $2. Now if there is 128 oz in a gallon, that meant beer was really between $24 and $32 a gallon; a far cry from comparing the cost of a gallon of beer to a gallon of gas and again that was posted on the sign outside.

The place is dirty, and very dirty. They allow smokers so if they served food, I wasn't aware of it. I saw no menu and no one was eating. There are a couple of pool tables, a couple of games and darts. I don't mind cigarette smoke, but the place smelled like something other than an ash tray; probably that they don't clean property.

I would go back had the price of beer been anywhere near what they claimed on the sign; even dollar drafts would bring me back. But I felt cheated because of the sign and have no clue how they could possibly make such a statement.

Can you please, in detail, explain how it was so dirty and why you would even consider going back if the price is what we claimed?
BTW, domestic beer is always cheaper than gas
