We didn’t actually go for Ladies Night, but we did enjoy the cheaper prices for my Cosmo. This is a good bar, with very good food! We had the brisket quesadillas and red beans & rice. Fun place!

It was an rainy afternoon with rain on and off couple of times. We decided to have a break. Actually we stayed until closing time. Food is good (even if the offerings are basic bar food), staff friendly and Karaoke night was fun.

A very hot day in October and running through town gets you thirsty - so we dropped in at Bowies Tavern - and look what we found - just what we needed :-)). So all fine and off we went. Nice place inside and outside!!

Service was awful, nachos and burger were good. Waited 20-30 minutes after getting our drinks ordered for the waitress to come back to take our order.
