2008-01-17 16:52:27   As someone who went here as a UR student 'back in the day', walking in now always freaks me out for a few minutes. I don't know whether they 'classed up the joint' and drove students away, or whether the remodel / re-concept was a response to the Saturday night drinking drinking crowds drying up and leaving them without a core market, but I suspect it was the latter. In any case, this place is VERY different than it used to be (for the better, I suppose, although I do get nostalgic for when it was darker and dirtier), and even still, I don't know if it's really anything special. It's a decent bar with (just) decent food - I wouldn't go there ever if it were out of my way. Am I missing something? —BrendonTroy

She was very friendly and seemed to have a rapport with every table. She handled a loud-mouthed group of four sitting across from us, like a champ. The food was plentiful and very good. Nice coleslaw. —BigPun

2008-09-03 10:19:58   Decent beer selection, but the food is awful. I guess Ill have to try the wings. Ive tried the food 3 times and havent had anything good yet. Its ALWAYS packed though, so I guess Im in the minority. Ambiance is nothing special, typical dive bar. —MrRochester
