We visited this fun, unique place on a slow, rainy Saturday afternoon. They featured a dollar menu that included sliders, chili dogs, beer, etc. The food was good, the beer cold, and the hospitality first rate. They have a tradition, on your first visit you...More

Place could use some cleaning. Menu items are few. Typical hamburgers, chili dogs and fried fish. Establishment only accepts cash or checks. Good place to hang out and have a beer.

Interesting little dive. Pretty dingy decor with very uncomfortable chairs. The whitefish I had was almost tasteless, shrimp were pretty good. French fries with the platter were the best thing served. Very limited menu. Probably won't go there again.

Burgers are smaller. Fish on bun a lot smaller. Burger and fried were good but not as good as it use to be. My husband said the tap beer is still good also the chili dogs are good. Friendly staff and good service.

Short menu of typical small restaurant fare. Crowded atmosphere and limited parking. Small bar area in restaurant. They did accommodate our large evening group by special arrangement.

The food was great, building held together with sticky notes or something comparable. Restaurant has recently closed.

Not good. Really a bar first. Food is prepackaged and re-heated. Never looks open, not even sure it is.

It is a hole in the wall. Hours are few except on Friday but everything that I have eaten there has been great quality for the price. Friendly and good service, Cheap eats.

New management, no draught beer, raised food prices across the board. Wife, I, and a friend had their fish & chips and a bottle of beer. Food was OK; but the unique atmosphere we would road trip here for, is gone.

Ever go into Hardees, McDonalds, BKing, look at the menu and suffer sticker shock? And when you finish eatin you feel like you have been cheated in a big way? No more, stop at al s in lake wales and have a burger and fries....More
