On a cold night when school was out we found ourselves here after a basketball game. Live band was good. Beer wasn't real cold, but decent selection. No offer of food that I could tell.

Great place to go to see a band, dance and unwind. Fairly small, and it will get packed during 10:00 pm-2:00 am on weekends. I like the Saloon better than the Phyrst.
