Matchbox Lounge

If you don't feel like waiting for a Whiskey Soda Lounge table at which to wait for a Pok Pok table, this modest corner bar just across the street from both is happy to take you in and provide you with a mellow atmosphere, pints of Sneak Attack Saison, and if you end up getting really hungry and are too lazy to cross the street after all, a decent burger.

Matchbox Lounge

A small intimate (and very red) cocktail lounge. The $5 Painted Hills burger special during happy hour is a huge draw, and for good reason—it’s delicious (as are the mini pizzas).

Worst Dining Experience Ever!! – I have to agree with other reviewers who pointed out the snotty service at this place. It was by far the worst dining experience I've had anywhere! Ever!!

The server was curt & short. We tried being friendly but she wasn't having any of it. We gave her the benefit of the doubt, assumed she's had a really bad day and kept our ordering short & sweet. Our drinks arrived fairly quickly & we ordered dinner. The guys were happy with their PBR, my friend was happy with her Manhattan style cocktail but I was underwhelmed with the whiskey, lemonade, ginger concoction I ordered. No big deal, i just planned to order something else for round 2.

The food arrived (2 orders of fish taco's, 1 burger & 1 steak sandwich). The burger & steak sandwich were good. HOWEVER, THE FISH IN THE TACO'S WAS BAD. IT SMELLED FISHY & TASTED BAD! I mean like spoiled bad, not just badly prepared. The place was filling up fast so our server didn't come back for a follow up until the boys were finished with their burger & steak sandwich. We explained about the nasty fish & she left to consult the manager. The manager was also bar-tending so we could see, but not hear, their exchange. Neither the manager or the server went to the kitchen to check on the fish. Manager just had the server return to our table & state they stand behind their food!! What?!! They don't bother to check with the kitchen then say they stand by SPOILED FISH?!! Unbelievable!! RUN FAST!! Fortunately, there are so many awesome places in that neighborhood, you won't have to run far.

Great Cocktails – This bar is in my neighborhood so it can often be the default spot to get a drink. The vibe is always chill and the drinks are great.. A friend turned me onto sazeracs lately and they make an amazing one! Food menu is small, but always good.
