    Probably best Summertime Wed Happy Hour in Arlington. $1.50 beers until 9PM. Place is packed, but great place to meet people. Afterwards, head across the st. to Front Page for half-off burgers Read more

    Tip well on Wednesday nights. Servers deserve a little extra for slinging all those $1.50 pints.

    Food is better than all of the other local bars. Beer is way better. Someone below asked "How can they mess up chicken tenders?" I just wonder who over twelve years old orders chicken tenders?

    Mediocre food. First time here and was expecting great bar food but everything is bland. How do you mess up chicken tenders? Not worth the prices in my opinion.

    Wednesdays are $1.50 brews but it's always a sausagefest - have your beer selection ready before they ask and go to the guys in the back for fast results.
