All new staff and owner..Sucks. Fun times were had. We will miss the old staff at Cheap Shots. Don't waste your time or money . Go somewhere else.International Bar is right down the street.

Great place, rude bar staff...

The place is always rammed which is great for atmosphere and the crowd is good too. Maybe it's just me, but the bartenders were pretty offish and rude...

GREAT DIVE BAR but go when the owner is not in....

Spent an afternoon at this bar. The bartender and customers were cool. The owner sat at the far end of the bar and talked continuously. If anyone else tried to talk he would interrupt them and continue talking. Made everyone else uncomfortable. This is a great dive bar but try to go when the owner isn't there.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
