We wanted to eat Pizza and watch the game here, but we're never waited on so we went else where. They were not busy.

We are from a small town in Wisconsin so visiting this bar was like being home. The bartender was really friendly. We were the only 2 in there for a while and he gave us great advise on where else to visit! Great time!

Staff were nice, but I honestly couldn't stand to be there for more than a few cocktails at the bar, watching the Final Four match and needed to leave.... More
