    Smells like 1000 people were smoking in the place, get an air freshener already. Totally rude bartender too. Tap beer was funky, asked for a bottle and got an attitude. Grumpys made me grumpy!!

    The cream cheese burger may sound weird, but it's amazing (if you love cream cheese). No other condiments needed. Get the fried cheese curds too.

    Try the "Totchos". They substitute tater tots for their nachos. Not on the menu. You'll thank me later. You're welcome.

    Bathroom Review: The men's bathroom has a trough and a freestanding toilet. If you are male and need to go #2, ask for a towel from the bartender and pretend you're cleaning the women's room.

    Staraoke blows every other bar's karaoke out of the water. Rock Band kicks ass, as do the bartenders. Try the veggie cheese bites, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the molten awesomeness.

    ask for a sandinista shot to go with one of the great specialty taps that are frequently rotated out. if you're hungry, don't sleep on the cream cheese burger (adding jalapenos is a MUST) with tots.

    With the Burgermeister you can get almost any tap beer. For the price this is a great way to get a burger and good beer.
