This place can be a fun place to have a few drinks. BUT they are pretty hit or miss. Service can be almost nonexistent (on a slow day; you're definitely screwed if they are busy) but they tend to have a fun vibe. It can get pretty noisy in there. Avoid their food, it'd overpriced and meh at best.

I go here every once in awhile. The bar is kind of big oddly. It is two stories, and the ground floor is huge. They have a great big open bar with lots of seating. They have a little arcade in the back. They have a huge shuffle board table, and you can play beer pong if you want as... More

Such a cool place! Totally laid back drinks are great servers were super friendly and the band was pretty great too. Not over crowded and a mixed crowd so I didn't feel like I was around a bunch of kids. Had the Lake Alice Cherry punch and the melon mule.

We stopped in for appetizers and enjoyed watching a basketball game with the lively crowd. Typical sports bar with friendly bartenders and several choices of food. The burgers looked good, but we shared pulled pork sliders and they were just right. We left just as the band with getting ready. There was a cover charge for those just arriving but... More

Great location. Big open atmosphere. Decent bar food. Bands regularly and fair priced. Come early to avoid cover. So why just a 3 star? The service is hit and miss, usually a miss. Drinks a little high for the type of establishment and the iffy service. If you catch good service, it can be a great time

This was a large and spacious bar. There were loads of things to do there - 4 pool tables, a shuffleboard, darts, a punching bag, lots of pinball machines, and TVs on every open space on the walls. A good size stage had room for a band. The food was good. The waitress was friendly and efficient. Lake Alice was... More

A big friendly bar that serves good food (even late - when every other kitchen in town is closed), has great live acts, plenty of TVs, a great beer selection, and a super-friendly staff. What's not to like? Go!

Great place to catch the games! Multiple, multiple televisions and an expansive space. The food is above average for bar food. My favorites are the curly fries and homemade potato chips, hamburgers and the nachos with the sirloin. Not fancy but really comfortable and a place for shooting pool, darts and old school video games.
