I've wanted to visit the Reliance for some time, but never seemed to be in the area at 6 PM when they open. Last visit, I talked my dinner date into a stop after visiting the Diorama. I do love quirky places and thought it was a hoot going in as though it was a mine shaft although we did have a problem seeing the door knob.
No food is served but the beer was cold, and the colliery mural and mining tools were interesting to check out. I'm sure our bartender was Donna, as mentioned in other reviews. She's friendly and helpful and on top of customer's needs. I will certainly pay this delightful little bar another visit.
