If you love a dive bar with good music, you will love this. I did. Cheap drinks and even ciders for the gluten-free. Great musicians the night we were there. Perfect.

Two couples went and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere as well as Dickie Lee and his band. They put on a great show, were entertaining and personable. He appeals to all age groups. It is reasonably priced and has a terrific patio in the back.
