local watering hole

This place is what your neighborhood hangout should be. Great beers on tap, especially the Guiness and Harp, good apps and bar menu at reasonable prices. Buy backs are frequent, and the staff is extremely friendly. The best time to go is for a pop after work or for a pre game on Saturday afternoon. Prime time bar hopping is crowded like all of the upper east.

FRAT-BOY paradise - skip this place!

  • No, I would not go back!

Ugh! What a bore. Tons of partying post-collegiate snots and frat boys, plus icky beers on tap and an overcrowded pool-table-area. Mediocre food. There are much better places to go. Skip this Doc Watsons.

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.
