  • Stinky is the best bartender.
  • Always a double!
  • Shannon is the best bartender ever!
  • Saddle, please institute some door controls and keep the obviously straight bachelorette parties out.....
  • Get drunk here. Stiff drinks great cost. (then travel to the garden to dance the alcohol away.)
  • 2-8 p.m. Monday through Friday enjoy $1.50 draws and $3 wells (which are always doubles). Each purchased drink gets you a punch on your Saddle Punch Card, good for a free drink once its filled up.
  • "Where you never have to ask for a double" and they mean it!
  • They have the strongest drinks in town and a great crowd!
