“Try the Blue Ox Burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Great place to visit. It really is a bar musuem. The service was good and had the Blue Ox burger which was excellent. They also had different kinds of micro brews you could try. Its one of those places you might see on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Great place with a lot of character and nostalgia.

“Drinking in a museum”

Awesome place to visit and get oxidized. If you like to reminisce about the old times and enjoy looking at antiques that are authentic then this is the place for you! These owners are the true american pickers!!

The service was very good. Very friendly servers. Paul McClain on piano is always fun on Saturday nights.

“This bar was a great "hole in the wall"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We stumbled across this bar on a drive we were taking around the peninsula. We loved the hodgepodge of antiques displayed around the bar. The Spotted Cow on tap was a huge hit as well. We met quite a few locals, and loaded up the juke box and had a great evening! We did not eat here, but had a some great beers and chatted up the bartender Kelso who had some great stories to tell as well! If you are looking for a great local pub with personal service, this is the place.

This is on our stop list every time we're in Bailey's Harbor. Fair bar food, but great atmosphere. Stop in and have a beer! Met the Owner...she was awesome.
