After driving 5.5 hours from Jacksonville we stopped here. again its another place that must have hated our looks, its 12:45pm we get seated in a booth by the restroom exit. Not all that bad at first.

Now the booth seats are the MOST god uncomfortable seats I ever sat in, a back so straight its just sad, they must have hired Airline seating experts to design those booths for maximum amount of people and minimum comfort. Ok we would have moved to a table but the service was so bad, as we found out later why.

ok 10 minutes after we sit down the girl finally comes over and has no patience with my wife at all. She does not want to offer any help and looked at my wife like she was from plant Mars or something. I wish we had just left then. The beer list was good so I guess that overrode my better judgment. I can see where this would be a great beer bar, lots of room, games downstairs and another bar. If I was single and just wanted to hang out downstairs it would be nice. But sadly we were there for lunch.

OK we order the food and I ordered a beer with a glass a water. 10 minutes later, I get the beer, no water. Now there is like only 3 tables full in the whole place and more are downstairs but they have there own wait staff downstairs. This place need some management, or better staff ASAP. ok 15 minutes later get the food and it looks ok, but my sandwich had no mustard(and it was supposed to according to the menu), period, we get nothing but Ketchup. Food ok but if you say a sandwich has mustard then put some on it. maybe this place rocks at night but daytime they suck.

I wanted to ask the waitress about it but she only came back about 15 minutes later, to ask how it was!!!! Way too late. Then about that time some of her friends come in, looking and sounding hung over, as they were. As we overheard they all been out late the night before parting(including the waitress), well they got great service and we got to hear all about their party the night before!!!

Anyway beer list great, prices a tad high for a sniffer of a cheap DuPont saison, but it was good. Value wise not a good deal. I would try the place again downstairs for beer and darts only.

Avoid the dinning room at lunch at all costs, if that girl is there, unless you know her of course. I just hate places like this with no management, no wonder the place was dead, the Whataburger across the way was PACKED, we should have eaten there and then maybe had a beer here. oh well we never go back now.

20 taps, 50 bottles, lame selection compared to Kickbacks 85 taps.

Great bar! Fun, games (bocce, darts, pool, etc). Fantastic varied beer selection and fantastic atmosphere, albeit half of which is underground. Food is pretty good, even great for a bar. Can get crowded on Friday and Saturday nights so be prepared. Convenient parking.
