This place was a blast and in a great location. Seating both inside and out. Lots of character with all of the hats hanging from the ceiling. The bartender was awesome and was patient considering there were 11 of us.

Interesting little place with a lot of history and charm. Quick staff, darts, pool and a sweet jukebox make for a fun night.

It was a great party for all. Good food. Live music from local bands. They have one of the best places to watch beautiful sun sets, on the back deck.

What a nice bar. The crow was fun, eclectic and diverse. The drinks were good and the staff was friendly. Not many if these kind left around. Talk about personality!

This place is NOT the place to go if you want fancy drinks, classy atmosphere, or food. This is just a long time standing bar on the waterfront. Dusty hats hang from the ceiling, wooden floors, a few tables and a couple of pool tables....More
