This place was completely redone in February, so we checked it out for lunch. It is more bar than restaurant, with a wall of small batch beers that you can self serve. Very cool. We had wings and a couple of drinks. They were excellent! Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable, but the kitchen was pretty slow considering that there were only about ten people there. We will definitely try them again.

Met friends there on a Saturday night. The inside has been totally remodeled. Turned out great. Plenty of TVs if you want to watch sports. If you're a beer drinker you'll live the beer bay. It's self serve and there are quite a few selections to choose from.
Appetizers we're good and there was plenty of entree options. The crawfish flatbread was amazing. The burgers were all 3/4 pounds.
Staff were all friendly and service was excellent.
We will definitely go back

Heard about this place while visiting in Pensacola...turns out it was a long term “Bar Rescue” project. Being big fans of the show, we decided to check it out. (The reno was completed in February 2018, not sure when/if it will air)

The decor is great, and they have a self serve beer tap system that is very neat, sure to be popular. Other than that, somewhat underwhelmed by the place.

Had a couple of cocktails...the Breaking Yard was actually very good, but the blueberry Afternoon Watch was way too sweet, even though the server represented it as the less sweet choice.

As for the food, the wings were very good, and my wife enjoyed the Triple Decker Chicken Club (without bread at our request as we eat a low carb diet. They did a nice job...actually)

I had an Anchor burger, well done. The meat paddy was so over cooked I could imagine dust puffing out when I bit into it. I realize a lot of people in the US eat hamburger not fully cooked, so perhaps they are not used to cooking things well done. It’s called a meat thermometer, the cook should try one out. It’s very easy to cook well done and still have a juicy paddy.

Another beef (pun intended) was the drink times...over 10 minutes for my first cocktail, and closer to the 15 minute mark for the second. (There was about 12 patrons when we arrived, no more than 20 the entire time we were there) Most of my meal was spent without a drink, which is a particular pet peeve of mine.

I think this place has potential, but perhaps Jon and Lisa Marie need to pay a visit for some fine tuning...?

Feels laid back with good food, signature drinks, and pay as you go self-serve draft. Has stage for live bands to perform
