REFUSED ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY because they weren't California residents. Don't get me wrong, this is a crap establishment to begin with but to refuse legal state ID's and military ID's is completely ridiculous. In addition to the refusal, they discriminated based on sex. They allowed...More

Cool place on El Camino, little tiny and it can fill up quickly on the weekend. Prices are pretty reasonable, bartenders are friendly enough. Nice place to grab a drink but a little crowded on the weekends.

Nice little dive bar with some pool tables in the back. gets pretty packed sometimes and bouncers will give you hard time with out a Cali ID. Definitely more a locals spot but everyone was cool.

Liked this place. Had a seat at the bar in front of a video game.. Nice strong well drinks and inexpensive (cheap) beer specials. It wasn't crowded yet so we had great service. Maybe always great service but can't comment on that.

Plain and simple - a local joint with local color. Cold beer, loud music and fun with friends! I am sure that they pack in the crowds on a sports night.
