    Pros: laid back crowd, friendly people, strong mixed drinks, yummy pizza. Cons: 2 tiny bathroom stalls? Female servers are more friendly with guys, & slow service. It took 45 min for my pizza!

    Great spot to watch the Kansas Jayhawks play. It gets crowded so get there early on game day.

    Very rude service. 2 minutes until close and everyone stares yelling at everyone. Don't get it at all. Valet was just as rude. Everyone as very rude.

    Good for laid back sports watching and beer drinking...beware of the horn Big Al pulls on when teams score...some hearing damage but good for getting people into party mode!

    at no point do you want to cut loose and have fun here. I was dancing with friends and ended up on my back and no less than 30 seconds later i was out.

    Don't get the fried pickles. 5 bucks and you get very few pickles. Not worth it.

    If you want to have a good time, The Mat is the place to be! Ask for Nate, best bartender in uptown!

    Service is horrible. A bunch of clowns playing grab-ass with each other. You might get acknowleged...if they know you from some drunk bender or pot-fest. Non-starter!

    Apparently it's the place for bachelotte parties. We ran into four while we were there. $2 Bud Select pints were nice.
