  • This has been my bar since 1996... Possibly the best place to have a beer in the city. And, George does rule! If you're lucky, it will be dead and he'll have his guitar out!
  • Best bar for after Pens games. Speaking of best, George rules behind the bar. Tip that man well!
  • Best bartenders in the burgh. Very inexpensive. Great spot to have a few before a Pens game
  • Definitely try a Duquesne Pilsner. You just might find a new favorite beer!
  • Incredibly nice bartender and patrons. Great convos. Great dive bar.
  • $15 bucks for a pitcher of Labatt's?!?! What happened to the 32 oz. drafts for $2.25 when I was a DU student... Damn!
  • Great place for anything going on at consol.
  • Best bar before/after pens game! Even raffle off a jersey every home game
  • Great sports bar with really friendly people! :)
