    This place has a little bit of everything. Tourist location, whole-in-the-wall vibe, bar food, lounge, what have you. You get out of it what you put into it, so go in happy!

    Place isn't worth walking into. Dubious service charges, overpriced pints of mediocre beer. A tourist trap, pretty much.

    Popcorn shrimp, pizzas, and meatball sandwich are solid here if you need a bite to eat while you're drinking.

    They give you free snacks with each drink during happy hour. They also include 18 percent gratuity, so remember that when the bill comes.
