    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!

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

    Get the bagel dog! You won't be sorry! Great little place to stop in for a drink and a bite to eat

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

    Friendly staff, but beware there is an 18% service charge which is clearly mentioned on their menu and specials sign.

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

    Great local beers. Sit down, order a round and they'll give you complimentary popcorn.
