This is a great bar for drinking and playing pool. Got a really nice welcome from (Mike, I think he said) and he kept the drinks flowing at great prices all night. The music was loud - but that’s how I like it - and...More

Very cool hidden patio. Have to know Where this place is as it is tucked back on a gravel road behind stores. Stopped by for a beer midday, was very quiet. Looks like it would have a great night life.

The best things about this place are the pool tables and the best juke box in the area. Make no mistake, it's a local's bar, nothing fancy here.

This is Stowe's local dive bar and is great if you want a taste of the late night drunken debauchery. Also one of the only places to grab a late night meal if you get out of work after mid night. Make sure you go...More

I am not a local but I felt like it after going to the yard. Good food, good selection of beer, and the bartenders are so friendly. If you go say hi to Dennis for me!!
