Similar to my review of Clancy's, this is another dive bar. It's a locals joint with friendly patrons, reasonable drink prices and a comfortable atmosphere. I find people love dive bars or the hate them. I find they have there place and this is a place to stop if it fits your bill.

The typical dive bar, loud music, average drinks, pool tables and just enough dirt to make you wonder why your in there having fun..........it helps to wear sunglasses inside. Bartender was nice and busy, tried hard to keep up. No fights on this night, lots of Navy dudes inside who were respectful of others. Small bathrooms which are normal. Mind... More

Typical dark, mildly unclean, dive bar with Irish stuff on the wall. Patrons can get pretty rowdy. Nothing more to add.

You may recognize this spot from an old motorcycle movie circa the James Dean era. A bar some may refer to as a dive. But when you want a game of pool stop in.
