The best place to hang out with friends and have a great time. Older crowd than most bars in town, which to me makes it the best. A dive bar like no other.

Hadn't been to this fun well-known locale in a few years. Clean and quick service. And must order a Hot Nuts round!

College bar. Kind of hard to get a drink. Place is long and narrow. Two dart boards at the back. No food here. Just drinks. 2 for $5 shot specials. Good music. Oldies/Classic Rock.

Nothing fancy here, but good place to meet friends for a drink. Crowd tends to be a little older than many of the others in town. Tony, owner, is the best!

Tony's was one of my favorite hangouts when I lived in town a decade ago, and it's one that my wife and I still love to visit when we come back. Tony's has a comfortable student to townie ratio that, for some reason, doesn't seem...More
