    Not your usual restaurant

    If you're looking for lots of beer choices- they have it but don't get caught up like we did thinking this is a restaurant. It's not! It's a dive hipster bar that also serves a few things to eat. Reminded me of my college dive bars. It's all self serve so there are no waiters. For water they give you a tiny plastic cup and you have to go full it up at the bar yourself. They don't even serve sweet tea! If you're looking for a dog-friendly dive bar this is it but don't go for the food! The dog patio is also swarming with mosquitos (more than I've seen in Tampa, like you're out in the swamps off alligator alley) so they have bug spray out on the tables. Sketchy area as well, had people coming up to the patio/tables asking for money who were clearly on drugs.

    This place is an awesome spot for quality beers & wines! No TVs, which is rare in todays pub generation. Just cool people to talk with at the bar, with cool music from djs and live bands. Plus it is very very dig friendly, your buddy is allowed inside! No problems, plus outiside area patio! Top Quality Brewed Beers!
