Moved my daughter into Purdue. Needed a place to each lunch. Good beer selection and OK bar food. Nachos were good and so was the cheese pizza (even though it was a frozen pizza). Waitress in training wasn't familiar with beers on tap. Nachos came...More

By far one of the very best bars/pubs I've ever been in- the place is an institution and a rite of passage-great drinks- they pour a good one and basic pub food- very old, historic- maybe a little dumpy but oh so fun !

Friendly, helpful servers and the best wings I've ever had! Skip the quesadilla and go for a double order of wings!

Best bar on Purdue's campus in my opinion. They play the best music a mix of everything but of course the best classics that are out there.
