Dumpy Dive Bar,every thing is either broken, or worn out, or at least dirty. Like 6 TV's with nothing but Sports on constantly.
Scary patrons at the bar. That being said....It's about the Food, in particular the wings!
You gotta have the "Doobs". To die for!
This place is "Wing Heaven", there is no need to go anywhere else. There was recently an Italian restaurant on the other side of town voted Best wings in town ( Really Linda!)
When will Guy Fieri visit ?

I've been looking for a place to go in North Haven when I come down on Fridays on the scoot (or even the truck) and I've finally found it. Cozy bar area, friendly and attentive bar keepers, and good chow. People rave about the wings, are rightfully so. They are done right. Do the Doobs! The burgers are awesome. A real interesting variety and cooked to order. The Couch Potato is my fav but I'll try the Peanut Butter and Bacon one of these days. mmmmm... bacon... The place is definitely a local favorite. Everyone seems to know everyone. The bar keepers sure knew their guests. It was like being on the set of Cheers (for you old timers like me who remember that show).

Typical bar, tables are waaaaay to close to the TV, that broadcast all different sporting events.
Basic bar menu with daily specials and some nice local beers on tap.
It's a fun place to go to visit and watch a game.

Get the Doob wings. Also the quesadilla are great and burgers are massive and good. Good neighborhood bar. The bartenders are attentive and pour a good drink.
