    Outdoor seating is nice, but the view of parking takes away the appeal. Large beer list, but small beer love here.

    Great beer selection. On weekends, it's always nice to share drinks with a large group of friends (cuz it is pretty pricy there) and dance! Very large venue for your typical drunk activities.

    Good food, nice outside seating. Mother with kids complaining about smoke outside ruined the day. Word to the wise, don't bring your kids to a bar, take them to Chuckee Cheese where they belong.
