    Used to be one of the more tolerable bars in Old Town but the renovations have sucked most of what character it had to begin with.

    The crowds at this Old Town bar and grill come for the barbecued ribs and super-sized vodka-spiked lemonades and stay for the spacious covered patio. Read more

    Seems like a great place to watch sports. Multiple bars, tons of TV's and a good amount of space. Watched UFC PPV here and enjoyed it. They have food and golden tee, too.

    The BBQ Lovers Delight is a ton of food. You will eat for days. The Prime Rib on Fridays are good. The wings are good and the staff is fairly attentive.

    We were perplexed by the bar staff on a Fri afternoon/eve. Both were cold, and seemed like they would rather be elsewhere. Many patrons were making comments about this around the bar. Not good!

    Don't ask them to make a grilled cheese. Unless you'd like it on a hamburger bun. Gross.

    Do NOT get the Santa Fe Quesadilla or the mini burgers. They looked like they came straight out of a box (but smaller - literally boca burgers cut in fourths) and were served totally plain with no sid
