Great bands playing and such a fun scene. Staff made it very pleasant despite the fact the place was completely full. Food is what you would expect for a place like this and a reasonable value. Happy hour is great!

Yes. Oddly, there’s a sign that says No Dogs but they don’t seem to mind. There’s also a website you can read reviews called Bringfido....cant include a web address so just google it or add a dot and a com at the end.
