  • Very lively night life. Front windows open in warm summer nights. Plenty of tv's and good beer selection.
  • It's the best old school bar in the area!!!
  • It is known as "The Dive" and that says it all. On any given night is is packed with locals of all generations. Lots of new restaurant/bars in Cranford but The Dive remains a town staple.
  • Used to be a shot and a beer dive but now the younger crowd has taken over. Lively place with music but very tight space that packs them in. I go when they have a band I like or to watch a game on TV.
  • Good beer selection
  • Burgers are great! Nice little outdoor seating area, and beer is good. Great service too :)
  • Mexican Mondays for cheap tacos and $2 Tuesdays for $2 hot dogs and drafts.
  • The nachos are sadder than a 16-year-old girl going through a goth phase
  • Actually smells Smokey. True drive bar.
  • Decent beer selection for a dive bar. 750's of Chimay and Duvel for starter. Normal spread of bar food too. Win win for Cranford NJ.
  • The pickles and slaw are delicious.
  • Good place, sometimes takes a while occasionally for booze to get but good place
  • Call em 908 709 9449
  • Keep your Eyes peeled for the 'darts potato'. Can't make this stuff up. I love this place!
  • Tip Amanda and Heather realllllly well! :)
  • Chili cook off - Sunday after the Super Bowl
  • Brother John's Band on Sundays rocks the house. Don't miss it!
  • Torched cherry bacardi and sprite, blended! Tastes just like a slush puppy!!
