Awesome pre-football game place to be! A little bit off the beaten path to find but recommend by the hotel we are staying at. Bartenders outside friendly. Good beer. Good food. Good atmosphere. Good crowd.

This place is a local pestilence. I have seen my share of fun dive bars and college bars, and this place just doesn't measure up. It's a big fat failure. Here's the problem: The place is dull. How can a bar filled with drunk college...More

The waitress took my card number and ran it and wrote in her own tip (unauthorized). BBB now has them as a zero rating. Old broken down tables, musty beer smell, overpriced food, and rude workers. I didn't tip and even told them why and...More

Tried this place out yesterday. Don't waste your time. We walked in and we weren't acknowledged by the bartender but we saw people seated and eating outside so we went out there. Waited over 15 minutes for service ( so we thought) a server or...More

Fun college atmosphere with great drink prices. Probably one of the best burgers under $5 that I've ever had.
