a little bit of everything and more – been in some movies ,locals, and ya got the drinks, need we say more.
It tends to cater to the midtown and artsy crowd ...has some nice talent everynow n then.
You never know who you will run into.
This bar has everything you'd want from a local dive: a jukebox, beer, and a no-cussing policy. – The Scene
This bar is nothing fancy, but it's calm and friendly, and there are plenty of good tunes in the jukebox. Service is amiable but slow; if you're in a rush, this isn't the place to come. A strictly enforced no-cussing policy keeps patrons on their best behavior.
Drinking is simple at the Lamplighter. Budweiser and Olympia are on tap and come served in frozen mugs. There is also a small selection of domestic bottles, but there is no hard liquor.
While You're There
There is one pool table and a jukebox stocked with all sorts of rock and roll classics.
smoke gets in your eyes... – shirley is the beer goddess---serving only pabst blue ribbon and a couple of other domestics, along with wonderful burgers and grilled cheese, this is the place to go to wind down and take a load off, without spending your life savings for a beer. the lamplighter has an unbelievable life of its own, filled with characters no novelist could imagine. its a place to join in the conversation, or just sit and watch--either way, you'll be glad you went, if only for a moment. and if jack's feet do happen to be in your way-step on them and tell him darcy told you to.
9 – A good place to go and people watch. Shirley is the best...there used to be a pet cat as well. Have a Pabts and a grill Cheese, but watch your mouth.
Don't be afraid - just ask for Shirley – There is nothing to compare to a Shirley-burger anywhere in the world. Make sure you get your order in before 1 am because she's through by then. Add the fresh cut fries and a PBR to round things out. Play the juke box while you eat, but don't step on Jack's toes when you go to the bathroom. He'll be reading the sports page and have his feet stuck out! The regulars at the Lamplighter will be happy to talk to you and if you're good, you can become a regular too. It's only beer and only a few kinds of beer and only cash.
