    Great bar especially on Sunday nights. Play pool, it is only $.50 and Lindsey the bartender is cool. Nuff said

    They pour lime juice and salt all over the cans of tecate. It tastes like you're drowning in the ocean by mexico. In a great way.

    The warm navy cider is the best I've had- delicious and perfect on a cold night with a slice of orange.

    Get the bar's namesake drink - it's delicious & refreshing, almost like a frozen mojito, but better. Then watch the sunset.

    Any bar that serves pickle backs automatically gets an A+.. Do try their signature Rusty Knot- delicious, refreshing.. Like a blended frozen mojito..

    The Rusty Knot (drink) is as good as people say. Certainly the best libation you ever had out of a blender.

    Be prepared to endure a lot of fratty bankers. Last night I overheard this:Girl: Nice shirt. Is that from J. Crew?Guy: Do I look like I'm poor?But at least the Dark 'n' Stormy is tasty.

    Usually overcrowded and kinda basic. Get 2 Rusty Knots and you'll feel toasty.

    Um, I would be a happy girl if I could find out what ginger beer they use. Those Dark N Stormy's were worth the ridiculous price!

    Be careful of the MaiTai's, they will fuck you up! Let's just say, don't make plans for the morning.
