Great atmosphere and excellent drinks. The bartender needed more help but she did a great job with no real help. We look forward to returning when it isn't so busy. Locals seem to love this place. It also has some fun outdoor seating we are looking forward to trying.

Full bar with a good selection of beers. Free popcorn behind the wall (search for it with the remodeling). Service was prompt.

This is just you're typical hometown hangout with a beautiful vintage bar and bartenders who know their stuff. Nothing fancy, but fun to hang out, listen to music and play some pool if you're so inclined.

Food is a joke. Pizza burnt & burger cooked in some type of microwave. Bartenders not very friendly, no shake a day & TV is not HD. Needs a lot of work.

We went to Pudge's on the night of a Packers preseason game. Pudge's is in WI so we thought we would be welcomed as Packer fans. Nope. Not only was the TV not on, but the bartender (owner) said "Well the important game is on tomorrow night." Referencing the Vikings game. We finally got him to put the game on... More

So much potential...sigh. Food is lackluster and takes forever to get. You can only get pizza after a certain time. I'll admit, even thought the pizza is frozen, it's pretty good. Would be wise to invest in a small grill to push out some decent food. Beer good, cold, reasonably priced. Service is sparse. Go for the music. They have... More

Worst food I have erer had, Hands down! Nacos from the gas stations, Cheeseburger was terrible, Buffalo wings the worst ever, fries OK at best. The price for all that YUCK plus four beers $48.00. Worst money ever spent! Never will go back!

First time writing a review, couldn't resist after the terrible experience we just had! Food took nearly an hour, had to check the and status several times, no condiments, no napkins, no utensils. The price for three people to have two beers and terrible burgers cooked on a George Foreman grill was $42! Top that off with rude server and... More
