Not what it used to be. If you go back expecting what it was from a few years ago it's not the same. Good, quick service just a different feel than before.

It's composed to feel like a dive bar, though it's nice enough that it's clear it's not truly that. A dart board, a lovely outdoor space, great selection of beers around $6-7 a pop, with an option or two on draft around $3-4. Good service, fun vibes, well done decorations. If you're from the Midwest, you'll see a lot of familiar words/brands. The Schlitz globe lights are my favorite. Dropped a star because on one of my three visits, they failed to check for vaccination proof.

One of the best bars in Durham. Great outdoor patio with an outdoor bar.

This is my favorite bar in Durham. The decor and ambiance are great! Being able to drink outside on the patio is a nice touch as well. There are a few other great bars on the same street so location is good for a night out drinking.

Had a great time with a group of friends here over the weekend. Good drink prices, prompt and friendly staff, great music, pool table, bocce ball, and darts. What else do you need?

This is my favorite Dirham bar. Its welcoming to everyone, but has that look like you dont belong unless you know that you belong. So it keeps crowds a good size. It's got great bar games, and solid service.

Pretty chill spot, has a weird faux dive bar feel to it. Dogs are welcomed there which is great and there's Cornhole and bocce ball outside.

Typical dive. Bartender became progressively friendlier throughout the night. Cheap drinks. Serves food (but I didn't get any).

Great outdoor space, friendly bartenders, and great music. $3 draft on Wednesdays are what keep me going back.

This was My weeknight spot until I went the other day and my beer had the horrible taste of dish detergent. And the bar tender gave me a hot glass straight out of the sink for a tap beer. I always leave a nice top so I was a little taken back by it.

Great place to explore. Games, craft beer, and a little bougie but lighthearted.

Love this place. One of our favorites in Durham. No frills, just good old school bar with good prices and great bar tenders.

The outdoors of the place are nice, you can see the sunset with a beer in your hand, having a really pretty and relaxing moment. Also the beer is cheap!!

I really enjoyed this place. It was open and when I went it wasn't very crowded. The drinks were very well priced and the variety was good. I got to try so old favorites and some new things as well. For big groups (more than 6) it's kind of difficult, but there was a section that I didn't go into and maybe they had seating there.

Great spacious bar with bocce and shuffleboard. They also usually have a pretty extensive beer selection to choose from which is a plus.i don't really understand the whole membership thing, but other than that it's an awesome bar right in Durham to hang with friends and drink delicious beer. They also have an outdoor area you can bring your dog to which is of course, important.

Liked the inside outside bar, and the couches in the pool room. Large open outside area and bocchi (sp) ball. Had a great time here. Friendly crowd.
