This is an older bar that has good food and karaoke. My husbands customer recommended it and we weren't disappointed. We were a couple hours early for karaoke. Planned to go back but the weather was too cold for us Riversiders. Want to go again specifically for dinner & karaoke.

If you like playing pool with the best tables, straightest cues and you also like drinking excellent beers on tap and eating top quality food, look no further.
