First the good stuff. This college-style bar has great, friendly staff and the food is not bad at all but New Orleans style cooking this is not. I've eaten in the Big Easy and it's really hard to compete with shrimp just up from the Gulf fresh and sweet and remoulade sauce that makes you want to break into song!... More

On this Thursday, November 20th, I went to Fat Tuesdays for the first time after hearing about a music show taking place. Having never been to Fat Tuesdays I wanted through the wrong open door at the patio. An African-American bouncer of twenty some years of age asked me to go around the fence to check in with him. I...

My husband and I frequent this venue for great local live music. They have a wide selection of craft beers available, especially Abita brews, some on tap. They have bottomless peanuts available, good gator bites, fried pickles, etc. A great dive bar!

We were happy to find this place open during a recent snow storm. The bartender Chris was awesome and a credit to his profession. There is a great selection of beers on tap and the ones we were unsure of he was happy to give us a small sample. We ordered gator bites and fried pickles and both were tasty... More

It is a bar so don't expect 5 star food. There is a nice stage and they have live music every weekend for a small cover charge. They sualy have a selection of local craft beers.

This is one of those local places that revels in being a Dive Bar. It place is a l'run-down' looking, but interesting. There is all kinds of memorabilia all over the walls, there are also TVs everywhere. While the menu is very limited, the food itself is very tastey and has good spice to it. The beer selection is also... More

The draft beer selection is one of the better ones in the area. Live entertainment is hit or miss and no calendar is visably published. Its a dive bar that takes pride in itself with good neighborhood feel. There is food, mostly sandwiches which are nothing special.

We sat outside on a nice night, not enough chairs for everyone to sit, good selection of beers. Bar food was ok, nothing to write home about. Cheeseburger was good it was on a hoagie bun, po boy style. The bathrooms were dirtier than an outhouse. Place needs a complete remodel. There are much better places in the area.

I don't think anyone would be surprised to learn the quality of the food here leaves a lot to be desired. Really, it's just a college bar. Throw a couple of peanuts on the floor and throw back a couple of beers. You're here to hang out and relax - in a strip mall in the 'burbs. Good place to... More
