    A memorable little place with a rich history in the very walls. but of course everyone misses the old days when Ms. Shirley was with us, coaxing & tickling a lively tune out of the old ivories...

    Old world charm ("room" was originally English, deconstructed and reconstructed in America), great steaks, and a generally nice place. A little dark, but still nice.

    Great food and drinks are the staples of this steak restaurant. The combination of good food and live music makes the restaurant’s ambience.

    One of my all time favorite dive bars. Always go with the chicken teriyaki and side salad. They love their ranch dressing here which is alright by me.

    Love this place. Delightfully dark and cozy and a great place to hang out with friends. Also cheesy fries and cheap strong drinks.

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. From the Cabernet-colored Naugahyde to the rollicking sing-a-longs, this place defined lounge culture. Raise a glass to Shirley!

    Live music, friendly neighbors, kind hosts. This makes a great atmosphere. And it's open late. So don't hesitate to jump in.

    The bar menu is hard to resist, but go for the burger and avoid the "calamari steak." Your curiosity is not worth the pain.
