    Great place with high ceilings, dim lighting, and cheap beers. Playing neat old movies on the tvs and decent music on the stereo

    Awesome food and people. Try their turkey sandwich on pumpernickel bread with cranberry aioli. So so good. Also they are now open during the day so you can stop by for lunch!

    Great place! Their food and drinks are good and decently priced. They show movies on the tv (Jurassic Park!!) and there's an oldschool photobooth.

    Good menu, and the food comes out pretty quickly. Side note, check before you sit to make sure there's more than one waitress/waiter. It was packed with only one server...

    The large patio is perfect for smoking a cigar and watching the Big Lebowski on the TVs outside. There's no sound on the TVs, but who doesn't know every line to that movie?

    If you don't want beer or don't feel like a mixed drink, you can get a hard cider!

    This place has a douche factor of at least eight. I came to this bar after passing by and thinking that there might be an enjoyable LA vibe. Typical LA posers. The bartenders were nice though.
