A visit to this establishment should be taken for what it really is: a bar with sub par food, inadequate service, and inconsistent product. It can also be considered a bit over priced, but that is only a deal-breaker if the quality is suspect (which...More

Food is okay. Usually loud young crowd. Not good for families. There is seating for family when you come in to the right. Just a loud bar, nothing special.

Food was average at best. Had a vegetarian sandwich and was told the vegetables would be hot. They weren't. However other than that mistake by the server, she was very attentive and stayed on top of filling drinks and making sure everything was OK. The...More

Had lunch at the bar. Not really smelly. Had the ham and Swiss club on toasted white. Nice sandwich for the price. Good beer choices. Yes its a bar but the quality of the food is a step up

Ashley the bartender is the sole reason for writing this review. Happy personality, eager to please. All alone on shift, she served us drinks, cooked our food and continued a good conversation. Fresh cut fries were outstanding, Cuban black bean soup was delicious and the...More

Super friendly staff. Drinks were always right and I can not remember one time the place wasn't clean when I was there. We plan to hit them up on Friday night again.

This restaurant/bar is caught in the last century. Don't expect any culinary wonders here. Basic bar food, basic wait staff and basic price. Would not recommend to anyone looking for any thing other than sitting around a bar full of regulars wasting their lives away....More

For a place with such a great location, it was hard for me to give this a one-star review. But the fact is that because this is a smoking property, you can't possibly come in here without leaving smelling like an ashtray. It seeps into...More

The "G-Man" has been a Mechanicsburg, go-to place for at least the past 35 years, that's how long I have lived here. It's a great watering hole and a place to meet new friends. It's a local favorite plus many students from Dickerson College in...More
