Great live music- some of the bartenders are pretty awesome, too! If you're lucky you'll get Andy! Good variety of food choices, too.

They always seem to have live music there during the summer. Definitely a dive bar but good drinks and a fun atmosphere.

I visited this place for bite to eat, and was initially attracted by the great atmosphere from the live band playing. However, the best thing about the experience was the food - it was excellent.

This place is a dive. It is packed late at night, has live bands, and a shady crowd. It is perfect if you are looking for a dive bar to dance at with friends. The music has always been great when i've gone, and it's a fun place to close the night out at.

We were there on Karaoke night and the place was jumping. Quite the mix of tourists and the locals. Everyone having fun. They also have live music many nights. Decent prices on drinks.

Went there on a Monday night with Karaoke. It was packed, hard to get a seat. A lot of fun, prices were ok. Great place to have a few drinks and a good time. Would go back there again.

This bar seems to attract the best musicians. I recently stopped in and caught Johnny Hoy , a Vineyard legend finishing up his set as another great band started playing on the other side of the bar. And it was a Wednesday! The place was packed and it just felt like everyone was having a blast. They take their music... More

This is where the locals go. It's not a dive bar but it's not the ritz Carlton either. Good spot entertainment nightly bar staff is attentive and entertaining. We had Andy for our bartender and he was great. The crowd is quite the mix. We would go again it is worth it.
