    The greyhound is one of the best I've ever had. Fresh squeezed and refreshing, but strong as $&@!

    The decor is nice, The greyhounds are made fresh. But, the bartenders could use an attitude adjustment.

    Non-smokers and the smoke-sensitive should stay away. Cigarette smoke is perpetually drifting in from the tiny smoking section out front.

    You have to order a greyhound. It's like nothing you've ever had before. Also they only have one bathroom and the line moves super slow so keep that in mind. Love this place 5/5 stars.

    Fresh Squeezed Greyhounds. Pace yourself if thats possible, these are strong drinks! Great funky decor. Reminds me of New Orleans. Beer selection is lacking. More of a cocktail bar. good jazz.
