Stopped in on Halloween, all dressed up and this bar was great. The bartender was super nice, also in costume and poured great drinks! We'll be back.

Went to this bar with my brother in law for a few cold beers. Staff were very friendly and so were the other customers we met. Beers and gins were cheap but great.

In my book there is nothing wrong with a give bar every once in a while and Bortell's do it very well. Friendly (& attentive) bar staff, friendly locals (& Tourists). An enjoyable stop off after dinner.
