    This is a great place to visit. Good beers, food and the locals are very friendly. The bartender upstairs was extremely friendly and on her game for customer service.

    It's pure nostalgia nothing else. Over priced everything and considering the show ended 20 years ago, It should be more humble. The memorabilia is expensive just like the drinks. Go just cuz.

    If you go and want a seat, always tell the hostess staff that you are eating. Otherwise they won't seat you. You have to just stand and hope to be seen over the crowd at the bars.
