I've been here a few times. Thursday night is ladies night and drink FREE from 9-11. Fridays and Saturdays they have $2 well drinks and domestic bottles. Drink specials here are awesome! They have live bands all of these nights so expect to pay a $5 cover fee at the door. The Windbreak also has pulltabs, pigwheel and blackjack. So... More

The pool table area is nice. I wasnt impressed with the band from last night, 32 Below. The entrance fee was usual and the door security was quick to get us in. There wasnt a line, that was nice. Wasnt my scene, but it was okay. It was clean, the staff did a good job of picking up after concertgoers.

The building has a great layout for live music. The bathrooms were very clean and the staff was very attentive. We left during the break the band... More

Staff is horribly rude! It gets was to overpacked where it is not even enjoyable. People seem to act however they like. Now we have to get harassed to buy shots. Not a good place.
