We ran into here to shelter from the pouring rain whilst walking down to St. A Distillery. The bar was dark with a dart board, pool tables and football on TV. Together with the permitted smoking, it brought back many happy memories of US bars...More

This is a joint. Period. You can play pool and hang at the bar and BS with locals. It's very low key and inexpensive. Stopped by for drinks: for a chardonnay and a Yuengling draft it was $6.50.... Nuff said.

Great Bartenders and good drinks. Plenty of darts and pool tables. Please stay away...so this place does not get overrun with DB's and tourists....

We wondered past here walking from the winery and stopped in. While we didn't like the smoky atmosphere, the friendliness of the occupants made up for. They gave me a free shot for my birthday - no wifi - no frills. Love it!!
