    Very friendly service, but otherwise a pretty typical Irish (?) sports bar. Dark and loud and sticky.

    This bar is awesome! The food is good and drinks are relatively cheap and the atmosphere is very lively. Try the Spicy Back Shot (shot of whiskey + shot of spicy pickle juice) and the Downtown Tea!

    This is my favorite bar. It gets loud in the evenings, so sit outside if it's warm enough. They make a great hot toddy!

    It's called Whiskey Tavern. So if you want to shoot Jager bombs all night, you're in the wrong place.

    The most personable and welcoming bartenders I've seen. When a bartender acknowledges you by eye and never has to ask your last name on a busy night, you get my 10/10 review
