I have recently moved back to town and this is the fun atmosphere I remember! Great staff, understanding management and fetures great local bands. This is the place that thinks of you as a valued customer rather than dollar signs. On top of it all they have top notch food. Not just bar food skillfully prepared food items!

It was also more interesting since the University of South Carolina was playing not far away in Greenville against Duke. The food was great the beer was cold and the crowd was into the game.

I chase cheeseburgers. Not a truly easy task in Hendersonville, more to the point that there are so called "specialist" beef houses in town. If you want a delicious, juicy, cooked to perfection cheeseburger, this is the place. That's all I have to say!

No frills sports bar in downtown Hendersonville. They do have a lot of tvs and were showing the Gator game which is why I went. Food was hit or miss out if our four orders.
