Go for the music not the food. Service is slow and a bit chippie. Unimaginative menu that could use some work. Flavor is not found here.

Set up with acoustic panels, no reverb. Great talent, great drinks, good service, food needs FLAVOR.. Really bland. Ask for salt pepper and hot sauce.

Great beer collection with a good variety of light fair food. The wait staff was refreshingly attentive to our needs and willing to serve. The music was a smashing success with tunes everyone grooved to. Good evening out with friends and we were not disappointed.

Monday night, August 31st, I attended the end of a 5 week talent contest in which my friends had been participating. It was so much fun. Although, I must say the food was not very good. Just pub grub. In any case, it was a happy crowd watching lots of people perform. As I left the parking lot, I ran... More

we didn't eat here but enjoyed the music and drinks. This is a very eclectic crowd where everyone is welcome. Our server was great and very personable and told us all about the place. The musical duo was outstanding. They played a mixture of country, rock and folk. Very talented. The place sits on Main Street but away from the... More

Laid back place with tasty food and interesting music. We were delightfully surprised with the gracious greeting and music. The first time we went the music was fantastic. When we went again, the music wasn't quite so good but it was just fun being there. Interesting characters wander in and out, service is good and so is the beer.

A small place but nice for listening to music without having your ear drums blasted. Good selection of beers and beverages. Good, standard bar/pub food.

We only stopped in for drinks and music. Small place. Music was good. Beer was $4. Friendly server. We had to pay $5 to park. Parking in downtown Greenville is horrible. Next time I will try the food!
