Stay far far away unless you want the whole suburban college kids coming to party in the "D." Cover charges for this location for no specific reason. Frat house type mentality in all who come.

Very raw and unfinished (aka cheap) look around the place. If you come to get good beer go to Grand Trunk or Park Bar.

Wants service on a busy night ? Non existent.

Want to order a drink? Punch through people to get to the bar to stand there for about 10 minutes til someone takes an order. Actually left after 1 beer to go somewhere else.

Loud...Crowded... Beer selection pretty lacking overall.

Place is pretty dirty on the inside too. I wont be back.

I love a good dive bar and I have been going to bars for 20 years and I was amazed to finally find a place that I did not want to have a beer at. A couple friends of mine and I went after a Tigers game and it reminded me of a bad frat party...music too loud, beer sucked, people were even worse. We bought an overpriced Bud Light, killed it off quickly, and got out ASAP.

If you are looking for a bar filled with people who are 18 with a good fake id, then this is your place. If not, go elsewhere, maybe the Detroit Pub. Next time I head back for a game, I will stay away from this rat hole.
