    Can get pretty packed. Grab a table if you can get it and take advantage of the beer and shot combo.

    Way better than you'd think! Don't be afraid of the oysters and order their frozen daiquiris!
  • Josh H.
    Great atmosphere, tasty food, poor service. We'll give it another try in case it was an off night.
  • Josh H.
    Tiny crawfish w/ great flavor. Took an hour to get our food. They don't know the menu, so you have to show them. The bartender seemed high and doesn't seem to know how to make a hurricane.

    Do not go to this bar! Bouncers were slamming doors, cursing and screaming at patrons, and sexually harassing my friend by demanding she show her breasts as a price for admission. Stay away!

    169 Bar is best explained by a few things: a disco ball, a dinosaur on the wall, and a pool table covered in leopard print. Also, of note: you can text your drink order.
