Idiot! – This is a great place to play pool and sample some of the 100+ beers they have on tap. If you go to play pool, it's another story. When my friend and I went to pay for our pool time, our bill came to 11.87, but it took the stupid girl at the cash register so long to count our bills that the total went up another 40 cents while we stood there. And she had the nerve to charge us for the time we spent standing there. UNBELIEVABLE. I said, "you're kidding?" and she just repeated the total amount we owed. I had to dig around for some change which took a few seconds, and the poor guying standing behind us probably racked up few dollars as he stood there waiting. I was really annoyed and the whole situation marred what would have otherwise been a nice evening.

Bad experience – If you are thinking about holding some sort of get together for a large group here, do not bother. I organized a graduate school event here where we brought about 30 people to their establishment. We were treated rudely by management and were completely unappreciated for our business. This restaurant/bar has no respect for its customer base and believes you are lucky to spend your money there.
