This is a great little neighborhood bar. Happy hour has a free food buffet with cheese, chips, wings, and more. It's pretty good. Not much room around the bar area and it is dark inside - but good place to come to grab a drink, have a few bites, before heading home after work.

I call it the BFS, it is huge, it is a great lunch, or dinner in the summer time. I usually get it to go, as it gets loud at night

The food is good, the beer is good, and it's usually pretty busy. Some nights they have a band playing. It's a good place to gather with friends and enjoy comfort food. The ribs are my favorite, and they have a nice battered onion with dip that rocks! What I really like about this place is that you can order... More

We go here nearly once a week, usually for lunch. The food and service are consistently good. It has a generous frequent diner's card for lunch and a special menu (Monday-Sat.). Ribs, chicken, steak and salads are delicious. Definitely worth a visit. Also has a great happy hour.

Been here before as we're local and have had very mixed experiences, but I have to give the, credit this time. Sat in the bar. Comfortable booth where we felt unrushed. Service was friendly even though he forgot to put in our initial drink order. Food ( burgers ) was good. Impressed that their draft beer had been expanded beyond... More

My mom and I had lunch at Bare Bones. She ordered the pork barbeque sandwich, and she thought it was very good, but I ordered the Bare Bones Special Salad, which they claim is famous, and I was disappointed. It was all Iceberg lettuce and didn't have much flavor, in my opinion. Maybe it was because I needed to substitute... More

Although it is nice to sit with family, listen to the game or music - This is my favorite carryout place. It's on the way home, the host/hostess' at the front desk always double check to make sure everything is there and correct, and they couldn't be any nicer.

On a recent trip we actually stopped here two nights in a row. The first night was a Friday and it was near the end of the happy hour and it was busy at the bar. My wife and I were able to find a couple of seats at the bar which was great. They have a decent selection of... More
