More of a bar to meet with friends and have some greasy bar food. It was a fun place with great crowd.

decent burgers, cold beer, nice crowd. Can get cowed at night but still ok. Good place to drop in during festivals.

I can't believe this place as small as it is still allows inside smoking. The ventilation is not adequate and I would not recommend ordering food from here for the same reason.
