DO NOT GO HERE – F this place. His card machine malfunctioned, and instead of letting me go to an ATM machine to pay my $12 tab, he called the police. Had 3 cops in my face, due to no other reason than my frequenting this dump. Owner is and has always been a complete jerk, and after 6 years of frequenting this dump, I will never be going back.

The worst bar in Austin. – This bar has terrible service, confrontational staff, absurdly high drink prices, and stingy pours.

It's not bicycle friendly, you can't have a backpack inside (the owner suggested I go hide my backpack in the bushes outside), and every time I've gone has been a terrible experience.

It's a disgusting establishment with disgusting staff, and it's a shame because it could be really cool. Avoid this bar, do not go here, give your money to a bar that deserves it. This bar deserves to be closed down.

GOD DOESN'T LIKE UGLY! First off the vibe given from this "ordained minister" was complete cr*p. Also the wall in a bar is not a place for a certificate to be an ordained minister and i wonder what internet website he got this from because they never met him in person. You should not make up random prices to charge people for beers that have not come out of the cooler since the dark ages. I regret not looking at the expiration date before putting the quarter of a beer in my body. He makes you feel so sh***y that you want to get online just to let everyone know how bad he and his 'establishment' really is.

His pinball machines are broken and instead of fixing any of them he just jacks the prices out of this world. He has cameras everywhere so he can just sit on his computer and watch everyone like the pedophile he is. I don't doubt that the mirrors in the bathroom are two-way or he has pinhole cameras in every urinal.

My only advice is if you want to go to this bar bring a sharpie because it will make you want to write G&S=POS.

The only good thing that came out of this place was that he gave me my money back when he kicked us out for being "F***ing Rednecks" even though we are farthest from it.

The only reason he got one star is because the website requires at least one.

Actually if you want to go to this bar.... save yourself the time and a fight and just don't.

best porta potty in town – Good place to drop a few bucks in support of a bartender who will treat you like you are garbage. If you can get past the stench.

this bar is for humans – This bar is in my top 5, and has been for the 13 years I've lived in Austin. Jimmy doesn't take any BS, and he throws drunks and people who are being unreasonable out. Get over it. He's a downright hospitable barkeep to people who treat him courteously while he's doing ten things at once, and he's absolutely loyal to his customers. Yeah, he lets his dogs roam free. Because it's his freakin' bar. If you don't like him or his dogs, perhaps you should go have fun somewhere else. More Brooklyn on tap for me!

I'd sooner drink from my dog's bowl – The owner has B.O that could literally wipe out a small African village and the mens room has a jungle of pubes on the floor that are old enough to date back to the golden age of por n.

G&S = Worst Bar, Owner Biggest Piece Of S#%t In Texas – Without question, Jimmy the owner is the biggest piece of little s*%t in the city of Austin. He threatens women, he tries to pick fights with his customers, his blockhead I.Q. gives him no idea as to how to talk to his customers. He is maniacal psychopathic piece of dog t*%d, and deserves to be investigated by the A.P.D. The A.P.D. needs to send an undercover in there, cross some of his unwritten "rules", get threatened for opening some door maybe, and take his p*%e lard butt to prison. Garbage... the whole operation. Owned by a*&holes.

The owner is disgusting. – There are no words to describe the owner. He is just plain nasty. I work in the service industry and know how customers should be treated. He called me a b*tch after I politely asked for another beer because the one he gave me tasted flat. He has called girls unimaginable names and chased people out with a wooden baseball bat. He shouldn't be in the industry. He deserves to be kicked in the face. DON'T SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE.

Its a wonder this guy hasnt been offed yet... – I am so surprised no one has gone in and hurt this guy he is seriously the worst owner/bartender possible. There is so much potential to this place but it will never happen while he is there... I would rather go anywhere else and pay twice the price to avoid giving him business.. its too bad since there are pinball machines there which is rare in Austin... nothing could ever get me to go there again, not even to beat him up. DO NOT GO HERE!

DON'T GO AT ALL COSTS – DO NOT GO HERE!!

Used to be a favorite hang out of mine when I lived in Austin. I revisited it this past memorial day with some friends and it was disgusted.

Not only is the owner rude but he's clearly out of his mind. He lets his dogs roam the bar free to to do their business on the floor- i nearly slipped on DOG URINE twice. It's always been a dive but whatever charm it once had is long gone due to poor choices of the management/owner. When a friend of mine (quietly) made a comment about the state of the bathrooms he took our beverages and kicked us out.

Ridiculous. I foolishly payed with a debit card and not cash so I will be watching my statement closely. Your money is better spent elsewhere-OWNER NEEDS TO BE HOSPITALIZED-not worth risk.
