    Tuesday AYCE crab legs. Service was great, staff on top of drinks, crab etc. Only downfall, smoke... I understand, just needs more ventilation, even on the patio. Will return, great food, cold beer.

    This is about as grungy as Midtown gets. Drink cheap booze and enjoy above average dive bar food while kicking ass in pinball, air hockey, or the coin-operated pool tables. Read more

    Great selection of beers and excellent food. I highly recommend the Pasta-rella Sticks and the Jalapeno Corn Fritters. Those two items are enough to bring my back. The decor and music is great too!

    Love this place. I am on a mission to try everything on the menu. So difficult to decide what to eat. The property owners are a bunch of fucktards with their parkng though. They love to boit your car

    The go-to order: Jerk chili, jalapeño corn fritters & the Kari Kari. (Seriously, just order all three.) Also, come by on a Tuesday for the $25 all-you-can-eat King Crab dinner.

    I had the Fish and Chips (french Fries) and my partner had the crab cakes both meals where much better than I expected. It is truly a diamond in the Ruff. Service was good We will return.

    The pastarella sticks forever. The back bar room is the real fun. No trendy idiot hipsters in the back and Marco will have a great time banging his head to the heavy metal jukebox with you!

    Cheap beer, pool tables, and fried food are the pillars of this dingy Midtown strip mall dive. Conveniently located next to Landmark Midtown, this is the perfect place throw back a few.

    Jerk chili was incredible. Love the atmosphere too. Great place. If I live in Atlanta this would be my spot.

    All you can eat crab legs on Tuesday nights. Great deal! Smoking is allowed at the bar. Classified as a dive bar. It is but I love it!!!

    The pot stickers are ridiculously good, the music selection is awesome and the drinks are well priced. Go in the Spring and spend a night on the patio or hit up the back bar for tunes and pool.

    No one under 21 is permitted here, but that's OK. It makes the late night scene that much livelier. Best place for loaded potato skins at 2 a.m.

    One of Atlantas best dives. Only downside is the smoke- it's thick and choking. Food and service are great.

    Cheap drinks, good food, cool decor and a couple of pinball tables. Allows smoking indoors so watch out if you're not into that

    Be sure to check out some of the daily specials - they're usually VERY good. The Highlander was featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives from the Food Network.
