Big 50 – Does anyone know the day of Jimmy's birthday? It is either May 2 or 3. He turns the big 50.

I don't want to hear this or that about Jimmy. He can be a sphyncter but, get it, can't we all. Jimmy is a good freind tha I am proud to have. I just need the answer. Thanks.

Kinda grungy, but a fun neighborhood hang out for locals – People need to loosen up, if you are looking for an upscale champange drinking join this place isn't for you. Jimmy does not like to chit chat so don't try it. Have a drink play some pool and chill. That is the type of place the G&S is, it is no Vicci. Pay cash the place doesn't do well with credit cards!

not for cry babys – I used to be one of the regulars there, until I joined the U.S Army. Before I left, Jimmy bought me a silver medal from the catholic church, for protection. Even when I come back to visit, he greets me and buys me a beer. Jimmy is very giving, the rules are simple dont try to start conversation with him, he doesnt warm up to people that fast. Get your drink and dont stall move out the way. when I come back from the war I will pay him a visit.

sincerly Soldier of fortune...

Talking D0uchebag – How can one man be so bitter? I guess his sister cheated on him, or was it his mother? Get a life Jimmy...my only wish was that you would have tried to chase me outside. I've been to jail for assault before and handing your arss to you would be a pleasure. Keep fuck1ng your customers, foreigner. You'll get yours...I just hope its from me!!

Hands down the worst bar in Austin – If I could give this bar zero stars I would! I am sure Jimmy the owner gets a sick pleasure out of reading these with his loser regulars so I will give them some more material. All of the things about getting ripped off are a cake walk compared to this guy ticked off. There is a serious mental disorder with this guy and it is scary. I was unaware that people that were as unstable as him were allowed to carry licenses to serve beer! He probably was denied for a real liquor license because he could not pass the "I'm not a raging lunatic test". All-in-all, I feel really bad for this guy. Even when you read the nice comments on City Search from his "friends" these people do not like him. They are posing as friends because being on this guys bad side is a scary place. It is sheer pity for this lost soul who will one day realize he has made a life of being mean, hurting people unjustly, and just plain poor ethics. I think if I came to the end of my life and realized that I had behaved even half as bad as Jimmy I would be a very disappointed person. What a waste of space in this great town that is Austin. Check out other local bars like Trophy's and don't bother with G&S. Let his poser friends get overcharged and put your money towards a different cause...no amount of money for therapy could help this guy. Being chased out to your car is frightening and one day when the assualt charges stick maybe this loon will get locked up for good. Treating people like this should never be acceptable...oh yeah, Girl with the nappy hair last night...Take a f-ing shower!

Stay away, bartender needs therapy – Came to Austin to visit a friend for the weekend and he suggested we head over to a bar in his neighborhood to watch the Alamo Bowl. I noticed the bartender was surly when I asked him what the beer was with the red handle that had the name facing the wall. He gave me a name that I had never heard and became visibly agitated when I said "I had never heard of it, what kind of beer is it." His response, "Beer". I smiled and asked if he could be more specific, was it a lager and ale, what? His response, "I just serve it I don't drink it." Okay I'll have an XXXX then. My buddy came back from the restroom ordered and we sat in front of the 4 televisions the place has by the door. 2 huge tv's and 2 small ones and all of them are showing the NYGiants v. New England game. I say to the guy, "excuse me, could you put one of those on the aggie PSU game". He responds that the tvs are set up for the game and if he changes the channel he will have to be changing the channel all night. (never mind the fact that those two games are the only ones on and that changing the channel involves picking up a small box and pointing it to the tv). I again ask nicely. You have the patriots game on 4 tv's, would you please put it on the alamo bowl." He responds by throwing my credit card on the counter that I used to start a tab, picking up our beers and yelling, "there's the door". I probably would have been angry had the whole scene not been so totally surreal.

After reading some of the other comments here I see that Jimmy has a bit of a history. That dude is totally insane.

Huge potential, but a failure in the end – Oh how I would like to tell everyone how great this place is. However, the owner/barkeep/loser/psycho will not let that happen. So instead let me tell you about being overcharged and then when calmly and politely asking about the discrepancy this lonely soul turns into a complete child and begins shouting and throwing people out. I've heard all he stories about him and have always been polite, ordered promptly, paid cash, and tipped, but that was all forgotten when my brother and I went to clear up the tab confusion. This place could be so great if Jimmy (owner/loser) would hire some decent help and take a few nights off. Maybe find a hobby and after a few years of social conditioning perhaps even a companion. Until then stay away! Prices are high, service is beyond horrible, and you never know when this grown kid is going to have an episode.

Don't Waste Your Time – You could say a lot of good things about G&S Lounge. Good jukebox, nice video games, and several pool tables and air hockey boards. However, the one bad thing about G&S is the over sensitive moron behind the bar. If you go to G&S be prepared to be overcharged. There are too many decent dive bars in South Austin serving cheap beer - don't waste your time in this one. If you pay with a credit card you will be ripped off. Apparently, the bartender (owner) failed 7th grade math and seems to carry the one a little more than he should. Plus, when you confront the guy about his mistakes he gets very defensive and throws a fit. Austin is full of smart people who are fun and friendly. You get none of that from this guy. It's as if someone took a dump on South First St. and decided to call it a bar. Take my word for it and don't waste a good night out on this place.

His prices are fucccking gay like him and his face is like a shittt hole. He has no family because no one fuccckin likes him. His body looks like a fuccckin dike and a retarded cowboy.

wouldn't go back on a bet – I've been there 3 times. The place has potential but the owner ruins it. Just a total arrogant a$$ and he makes up prices as he goes. It's located really close to me and there's some good people in there but either way I'll never return. Glad my buddies stole some glasses last time I was there!
