The only poker bar in Marin, it was grandfathered in. It has a regular clientele and you can play most evenings. There are also regular tournaments.

We love to stop in here for lunch. It is a sports bar, and doesn't look like much from the outside - or really from the inside either for that matter. There are pool tables, etc. and not a ton of seating, but it is never crowded - at least when we've gone. The food is always excellent. Great change of pace for a tasty lunch. They have superb desserts too.

Its old school. Really old school. Legal card room and bar with food. The place has many regulars and is comfortable. The bartenders are pretty good. The bar food is fine. Nothing earth shattering but good for a bar. I would go again.

I'm not a big fan of subway so I strolled into this place on a Saturday afternoon. It's a sports bar and poker room. Friendly crowd of people who are used to spending Saturday afternoon in a bar. Clean and the food was pretty good. Some good beer on tap. I missed breakfast but they have sandwiches and choice of side. I enjoyed an iced tea cause I was driving and they had several games on. Nice surprise.

I was in the area for business Sunday morning so I stopped in. This place has been around a long time. I hadnt been in for years. The place is a dark one, no windows, make no mistake. However, it has been converted into an adequate sports bar. Several TVs, A poker area ( Only card house in Marin County ). The pleasant surprise was the menu and the food. There were daily specials, a good daily menu and nice dessert menu. The breakfasts were huge. The coconut pie perfect. The service by the bar tender, Ryan also perfect. The place isnt the RITZ, but if you are looking for very good food at a reasonable price, give it a try. I wpuld suggest the breakfast, specials and the burgers
