The casual atmosphere, and more than reasonable drink prices are a big draw. They don't serve food, but a hot dog truck, offering great food, sits outside on weekends. The owners are very friendly and attentive.

Fun spot! Great prices on drinks, most nights can order from a gourmet food truck(Rhino food truck) on the premises. Saturday night karaoke is a blast. The owners are very friendly ........ just a great spot! Very warm and cozy inside, great atmoshphere. A hidden gem in Deep Creek!!!!!!

Nice place to catch a cold one with friendly service and clean place. Friday night trivia is the best

No food served but you can bring your own. Good Happy Hour prices, beer and wine only. Plenty of parking, clean inside with a classy décor, also outdoor seating for smokers. This is a locals hang out for the Deep Creek crowd.
