I've been to Winnie's twice and would go more frequently if I lived closer. No scams, no pretense, no pressure. The family that runs the place make beautiful, gracious hosts. The karaoke system is not the most up to date on the planet, but I think it adds to the charm. A welcoming and forgiving place indeed, run by real people. They have my heart.

I love Winnie's! The atmosphere is great, the sound IS in fact good, and I personally like the song selection because it actually has a lot of older songs - standards and songs from other decades, not just the latest Keisha song that no-one over 30 wants to sing or hear. I'm sick of going to Karaoke bars where a) all they have are horrible rap or current hideous pop songs, none of which I know anyway and b) you have to wait 3 hours to sing, if you even get to sing at all. I'd rather pay a dollar to sing a song pretty much when I want to than wait for hours to sing something for free. If you are a boring, unimaginative, everyday sort of person under 25, Winnie's might not be for you, but for anyone who likes atmosphere, and to actually sing at Karaoke, and wants an older selection of music (and it's not all old, by the way) then you'll love Winnie's.

Twice I been to this bar, I wish I would of never went. Music selection is out of date, sound system sucks, drinks are water down and what's up with the owner giving everyone dirty looks?

This is a dive bar, that is part of the attraction. Drinks are decent priced, people are very friendly... it is always a fun time. Many places charge for the songs.... so what.... I would rather hang here than any of the upscale places with the secret handshake and elitist attitudes. Winnie's rocks... unless you are a eunuch.

$5 bucks a coors lite bottle to be in one of the shittiest looking dive bars I've ever seen. The Best thing I can say about this place is the waitress was moderately cute. Now Lets move on to the Karaoke. The song selection is a joke. Not much worth singing even if I would be willing to PAY $1 DOLLAR PER SONG TO SING!! Why Would anyone pay to sing Karaoke there when there are other bars a couple blocks away where they can sing for free. Don't waste your time with this place!!!
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
