We absolutely love coming here. And it is a place that I can go to alone and never feel awkward or uncomfortable. Bar tenders are great and other patrons have become part of my family. The owner Betsy is the bomb!!

I was invited by a friend to the bar, the staff and the riders all then headed for Ocean Beach for a ride out. had a great day meeting new people and was treated like a local by the people I met.

I dont smoke, and personally I find it a disgusting habit. I also have asthma, so I turned around and left as soon as I walked thru the door. THE WHOLE PLACE REEKS OF CIGARETTES!

They do serve food now, and it is good, but the money spent on the upgrade was wasted on the motorcycle on the bar.

There is no food to be bought at this establishment. There are paper plates with stale chips/Cheetos. These are provided for free. A reward for patronage? Many drinks later you stop caring.

Wannabe biker bar. Not bad, but not good. You get what you pay for.
