Went here for the KDWB Owl City performance with some friends. The stage was in a decent location, and we even got some free beers from the whiskey girls. We ordered the nachos for a snack and they were BY FAR the worst nachos I have ever had in my life. There was iceberg lettuce on the chips, unmelted cheese,... More

For those of you who like youngins dancing around and somewhat expensive drinks then this is your place. If your looking for classy, don't go.

my fiance wanted to go dancing with me and a few of her friends for her birthday so we thought this would be a decent place to go. We soon found out just how wrong we were, the other male patrons wouldn't leave the girls alone, even after being asked multiple times. Service at the bar was terrible, it took... More

don't go there..i went over there for the football game...but this bar is terrible at best and racist too i think..i went to the bathroom and they gave my seat away to other people because they are buying more stuff i guess and the stupid server/patron won't even answer me when i was asking what's going on.

I've been going to the Dive Bar for years, even back when it was T-Birds if some of you younger kids can remember what it looked like before the name change and remodel. I love it there. To me, I know I can walk through the door, talk with the bartender and have a good time. Their food is always... More

I enjoy going to this bar because they do not let all the trouble makers intot he palce and that helps with drunk fights and stupidness. I do like their strict dress code and their no bull crap attitude. you have to be some what of a Jerk when you are working at any bar because you do not want... More
