The PBRs are cheap and ice cold and the atmosphere is campy and fun. Televisions show Hee Haw reruns and the clientele is diverse. It's a small place but has a pool table in the back room and a nice front patio. It was packed...More

Great prices for ice cold beer in a throwback, vintage atmosphere. Once you enter this local dive, you cannot see the looming development that encircles this lively bar that just wants to peacefully coexist with its' neighbors. Don't change and stay strong!

Cheap drinks. Strong pours. Friendly locals. Pool table. PAC man. Every time I come here (perhaps twice a year) I meet friendly folks. Don't let the exterior throw you off. This is a nice dive!

Looking for fancy umbrella drinks and a great wine selection? Then keep looking, cause this place is just a bar with cold beer and mixed drinks served with a side of southern hospitality. Nothing fancy here. Try a PBR tall boy and a shot of...More

Our daughter introduced us to the Thirsty Beaver after a long road trip from Virginia. We both thought this was a cool little place, with reasonable drinks, and a VERY CASUAL ambiance. The bartender was very cool, the entertainment for the evening had not started,...More
