    The buttery, crispy crust on the Detroit style pizza from the truck outside delivered right to our table was SO good. It made me want to visit the Motor City just to get some slice.

    Great bar. Lots of beers on tab. Heavy pours (be careful) and the always awesome Via 313 pizza trailer. Prefer to sit outside in the patio with my dog where my girlfriend can smoke. Very casual.

    With dark lighting, cool air, and the Beach Boys on the jukebox, this is a perfect after-work stop that holds up nicely into the night. The long, L-shaped bar is good for chill TV watching.

    Some of the best prices in town! Great outdoor patio, Trivia on Wednesday nights. Stop by and have a Tang Pounder, you won't regret it. And say hi to Fish, Steve, Squirrel and Pete for me!

    Blanche De Brussels, Left Hand Milk Stout, Live Oak Hef, and a ton of other delicious beers! All for $3 a piece whenever the hell you decide it's beer:30 !!! Who need happy hour?

    Same crew that brought you Mugshots, Barflys, Bender & Hideout. Stiff pour, reasonable prices, good service & respect for you as long as you reciprocate.

    Via 313 pizza truck is great! Bring a scarf if you plan to hang on the patio on a chilly night; they have no heaters.

    Perfect for why it is. No pretense place to grab a drink. Love the Anti-trendy vibe.

    Drinks are poured heavenly and are cheap that's the plus side the downside was the small juke box they had that you could barley hear .
