poor service, don't run a tab – I went with a few friends, not much for going to a dive bar. after being there for a hour and ordering two drinks, i closed my tab. they added three drinks. when I asked to have them taken off the bar tender threaten to report me as a drunk driver. Finding this odd I flagged down an officer in the parking lot and told him about the incident and that my credit card was being kept from me. he advised me that nothing good ever comes from the back alley bar and I should avoid it. thankfully I was able to get my credit card and disputted it with visa, took over two weeks. stay away, but if your into poor service, expensive drinks go for it, just use cash...
Rude, rude, rude! – This place was terrible. I felt like I was at a high school dance the way the bouncers and bartenders were constantly bossing us around. I understand that there are fire codes and rules but the people there acted like authoritative jerks. I was shoved into a corner on numerous occasions because apparently there are invisible lines up telling us where we are and aren't allowed to stand. I went there to have a good time and I ended up having one of the most frustrating and degrading nights I've ever had. Learn to treat your CUSTOMERS with some dignity and respect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will NEVER go there again and warn everyone against it.
Horrible customer service – This place seemed really nice at first then within the next 30 mins got horrible. After 2 drinks my friends(whose bday it was) got cut bcecause she forgot to tip(she wasnt drunk previously) this was on a monday as well so it wasnt like they were packed or anything. All but 1 of the meatheads....i mean bouncers seemed like they had small mans complex and tried to bully all of 15 people there. The night ended by me watching a girl fight that was taking place there when the bouncers broke it up bu grabbing the girls hair and hurling them to the ground. This seemed extremely unnecessary escpecially when there were only 2 girls and like 4 bouncers that were 3 times the girls size. After this occurred they yelled racial remarks at the 2 parties invloved as they glouted about "messing up those b*tches1" That ended the night for me as well as my future with this bar. The only way ill come back is if they hire entire new staff(exceptions to that 1 bouncer).
Good Times – Very fun bar with great bands, especially INSULA. Fun place to hang out
Be Careful, Very Careful – One bouncer was extremly rude with no sense of customer service. He would not explain to me why I could not renter the establishment without first telling him of my leaving. He refused service. I figured out later that they had a line to let people in and out due to firecode standards. It would have been nice to be told that. The bartender could not work the credit machine either. I will never be back.
Great Local Hang.. – Great Downtown Fullerton Bar with friendly owners and bartenders. A good mix of local regulars and people to see the bands. Perfect for meeting a few friends for a beer after work.
