Visited 9-26 while visiting a friend for the WVU game. He knows I love smaller places and took me here and I loved it. Tons of old mementos and notes on the walls for you to read while talking with friends. Service was awesome for a Saturday night and the bartenders were running their asses off and always checking in with us. Beer selection was lacking for the craft beer drinker, but Iíd consider it good if I was into macros. They did have a few local selections from places that I ordered, so I was happy. Food was awesome, places like this always seem to do great food. We got a big order of wings and the in house chips. Both excellent. Value was pretty good, on point with what I would expect. Overall really cool place and Iíd love to go back again.

A WVU tradition. About a dozen beers on draught, Sam Adams probably closest to a craft beer. You come here for the history, tradition, and fun ambiance. A big chilly fishbowl of Yeungling is just not that good in and of itself.

Pretty good local bar and grill. Iíve enjoyed it every time Iíve been. If they would start pouring something besides the usual BMC stuff, it would be great!

This place is a Morgantown classic. It is small, crowded, loud, and a good place to hang out. Terrible selection, with only the basics being served (Newcastle, Leinenkugel, Yuengling, etc.....). Each beer is served in a large 16 oz. fishbowl, which is pretty cool. Average service and food. Many a generation of WVU students have frequented this bar, and if in Morgantown you have to visit this place just to be able to say that youíve been in the most historic bar in northern WV.

I was taken here by my friends dad, as it was where he got his drink on when he was in college. This place is definitely something. Stuff all over the walls. You could spend the whole night there just reading things. It was pretty crowded, but not really intimidating. Still a fun place. Selection is pretty bad. We all had a couple rounds of Newcastle in their classic fishbowl glasses. Pretty good size for the price. I didnít try the food, although I hear its pretty okay. I marked n/a for that. This is probably a place that youíll definitely want to see at least once, and maybe youíll go back. I donít really feel the need though. Not that its a bad place, just more of a landmark than a good place for brew.

see previous rating. Completely agree. WVU rocks, and so does this place. Selection is fairly bad (you might get Sam Adams, and Mad Dog 20/20 is quite common). Food is not great, but ambiance cannot be beat. Throw a quarter into a hige vase hanging over the bar, win a beer. Eat 60 Saltines 10 minutes, have your name on cardboard hung there forever. Great memories with friends there, and if you are in Mo-diggity, please visit.

The place is as old as dirt. Jesus probably frequented the place back in the day. Canít beat the tacky artwork which consists of WVU sports nostalgia and lots of hand-written cards with all the eating/drinking records set there over the past fifty or so years. Nothing special beer wise, but everything is served in a Frosty Fishbowl... huge mugs that came with the place when the original bar owners started the place up all those years ago. Everyone who has ever gone to school at WVU (since the 1950ís or so) has enjoyed a Frosty Fishbowl of beer before going out on the town on a Friday or Saturday night. On homecoming weekend, youíll be waiting in line to get in and be standing ass-to-elbow once you finally enter. A "must visit" when in Morgantown.
