  • Horrible service. I'm from Nashville and we do Sunday fundays. Not so fun here on a Sunday! Horrible cold food and bartender was never around. Don't suggest it to anyone going to have fun
  • Hit cool beans, tin roof or even the roaming gnome before entering this horrible atmosphere!!
  • Skip it! If you're cruising the strip don't hit half barrel.... unless you like expensive beer. A HORRIBLE wait staff. And rude service!!
