Couple friends called me and told me we (me) were going out, just the guys and going to a place called the "Watering Trough" more like a swaggering hole. The music was varied and loud, the smoke was equal to the fires in California, the dancing regulated, some nights they offer instructions, fair mix of guys and gals, lots of... More

This is a fun country bar but its very smokey. The music is sometimes hip hop which is annoying for a country bar and the drinks are sub par

About 30 of us Fan Hosts with the Tampa Bay Rays had a night off and met up at the Watering Trough! What fun! The instructor was great, very patient! Lots of room to either dance or just sit and watch. We will be back on Tuesday nights as well!

We were looking for a place for couples dancing on a Saturday night. We had a recommendation for the Waterin Trough. We arrived early (9 pm) and had a mostly empty large dance floor for 2 Step, Cha Cha, Swing, etc. Even with the line dancing there was plenty of room for all, at least until we headed out to...

If you love country this is the place to go! I went on ladies night on a Thursday and there is a 5$ cover charge but drinks are free. I have never lined dance before so that was a great experience and people are willing to help . Everyone seemed really friendly as well.

we go on Friday nights and play pool and have a few drinks. The wait staff is very good and they look that way too. The whole place is run very well, and all seem to have a great time there. There is also a very large dance floor and a great sound system.

I've been to this bar several times (like, I used to go every weekend). Friday and Saturday nights they offer sink or swim (if you don't know, you pay one price and drink all night). That's a good deal if money is tight but you still want to go out for a night of drinking. Problem is, here the drinks... More

Visiting this establishment for the Halloween costume contest was a horrible experience. After placing three separate calls days before the Saturday night contest we were unable to find out any information about the costume contest. We decided to show up in costume and find out how the contest was set up. After asking five separate rude employees how the contest... More

I completely agree with the "complete waste of time" post. Very snobby atmosphere where you can't get drinks. I do not recommend.

The worst experience I've had in awhile. We came in a bus of 22 and saw that they were busy. We understand what happens sometimes when you are. Unfortunately we ended up waiting at the bar for 20 minutes to try and get service. I personally still didn't get any and ended up leavimg. The only service that we got... More
