Great wings! Wednesday special is $7 for a pound! Had their Cajun style wings. I am using their round the world card to try 40 beers. Had Karl Strauss red ale and Anchor Steam. Beers were refreshing, got stuffed on wings, took 3 home.

Spikes was a favorite of the collegiate crowd 30 years ago. That crowd has moved on to other venues, but the beer and spuds are still great. Its a less crowded more laid back environment than the 80's. Its also lost some of that 80's...More

Great beer selection, okay service and moderate prices, but a nice change of pace from the other younger skewing (college) bars downtown. Actually worth hanging around for a bit if you can grab one of the booths!

I went with a few friends to this restaurant. They refused to give us separate checks, and some of our friends left early. When we got the bill, we struggled to figure out why we hadn't collected enough money. It took us a while to...More
