This is a nice establishment located in West Conshohocken, PA and my favorite bar within walking distance. The bar is on the first floor of the building with some outside seating in the back of the building that is raised above the bar on a 2 level deck. The bar has a very nice pub feel with dark solid wood bars, ceiling, etc. and a mosaic tiled floor. The doors fastened to the ceiling are a really nice touch. There are plenty of TVs around too. One downside is sometimes the decibel level may be too high with an occasional DJ tucked in the corner…but hey that is all personal preference
The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable that is happy to answer any questions pertaining to what is being served. The food is above average “bar food” with very good appetizers and sandwiches. There are a total of 10 taps with some macro stuff but most are rotating….great selection with breweries like Green Flash, Russian River, Cigar City, Great Divide as well as some really good locals like Victory and Yards. I always walk in to be pleasantly surprised with the occasional PtE or Blind Pig. Great bottle selection as well, representing local/domestic micros as well as imports.
Overall this is a very nice friendly pub. I recommend it to my friends who are traveling to the Philly area from out of town.

I've been to this bar on several occassions and have had mixed experiences. On some nights there would be a DJ blasting terrible pop music and mixes. Considering it's a neighborhood bar and not very large this meant you had to shout to be heard.
Other nights, like last Saturday, it was great. No DJ, medium crowd, and room available on their deck outside. The interior is pretty basic, though the ceilings are low which can make it pretty smokey and seem tight. Otherwise, there are nice flat screens, and very good food. The owners played pro lacrosse, the bar's name is Native American for lacrosse, so it's pretty much the motif of the bar.
Beer selection is pretty solid. Locals are on tap, along with some of the normal macros, plus Labatt's and Moosehead. Bottle selection is very good, carrying a good combination of local breweries like Dock Street and Yards (other than that on tap) and imports including Chimay and Fin du Monde. It's a well rounded selection, though problematic. On Saturday, the waitress had to run over to the cooler to see if a few of my selections were available. Ultimately, she let just wander behind the bar, pick my beer, and give her a head's up whenever I grabbed one. She said that the beer menu is outdated and that their selection changes all the time so they are looking to go to a chalkboard system in the near future.
Overall, this is a good, local bar. It gets pretty busy some nights, but you can always find some room and some good beer there.
