    Happy Hour!!!! Drinks and fantastic apps make me happy, but when they're half price I'm even happier! I wasn't a fan of the buffalo tenders, but was a fan of the hummus, spicy shrimp, & fried pickles

    Place is using the Obama-backed Dodd-Frank regulation to have a $10 credit card minimum now. What a terrible policy for consumers. Other bars in Manchester are better.

    Tuesdays are f**king dangerous in the most wonderful way. First, pad your stomach with half price apps, then bomb down a bunch of top shelf 3 dollar shots, and chase them with one of many $2 drafts

    This place is a shithole. The only thing keeping it in business are the cheap drink specials and they are going away quickly. They used up have a good beer list but never have any in stock.

    Make sure you have a second and third choice ready. They usually don't have a fair number of the beers on their list. Avoid the surly, miserable excuse for a head bartender.

    If you get food to go, be sure to ask your server for a "TO GO" box. Don't say "wrap it up" since apparently they may mistakenly throw the leftovers away. Read more

    Love the atmosphere as well, but the live band brought the noise. I had the buffalo tenders that weren't as spicy as I like, but good. The fried pickles are great, my first time having them ever too!

    Tuesday night is $2 drafts and 1/2 price apps. And the place is jammed. Go Wednesday instead for $4 burger nights - the burgers are outstanding and the place is usually much quieter.
