This place has a great atmosphere of calm during the week, if you want local bands on the weekends along with a cover this is your place. Pool tables, plenty of booths and seating along the three sided bar. Nice big TVs at the bar and around the room.

The quality is usually good here, they try. Last time I went I didn't get served an ice cold stout, so that was great, they turned up the temperature on their kegs.

The service is not usually rude, the selection is why you come here. They serve Matilda and Pere Jacques and once a year they have a small pour of the Bourbon County Stout. They have good stand by regulars on tap you can't find anywhere else on this side of Iowa like Summit Porter, Bells Stout, and Bells IPA.

The prices are fair for the selection you're getting and they have dollar off bottles night once a week and they have a great bottle selection that is even more extensive than their taps.

Went to this place last night for a Trampled By Turtles show. The bar was great, but the service was pretty slow. I, however, will understand that it was concert. I liked the amount of pool tables, taps, and atmosphere. The bartender even made a mistake and gave me a discount.
One thing that impressed me the most was the amount of craft beers. Bells, New Belgium, and Big sky were just a few they had on tap. The staff was really knowledgeable, and they seemed to be happy to be at the bar. I am not a huge fan of the Olde Main scene, but I really dug everything else.
Great music, great people, and I will be back.
