By far my favorite bar in Carbondale. It’s really nice to go on an off night when you don’t have to worry about huge crowds. Food is amazing, definitely the best burgers in town. Waitresses don’t really seem to know what they are doing but the bartenders sure do. Pretty decent selection of regional and national crafts. Schlafly, Sam Smith and Adams, Chimay sometimes, Summit, Big Sky, New Belgium, and Blue Moon. Also, my favorite, Guinness on draft with bartenders who actually know how to pour it properly. If you want to avoid gangster and bouncers who act like gangster, avoid Pinch and go to Callahan’s right across the parking lot.

Was stopping by with friends every week until recently. Waitresses constantly drink on the job and the one Becca is terribly rude and gossipy. She always seems to have a problem with someone in the bar. The place is going down and its got to be managements fault, seeing as the rest of the staff has been replaced over and over again. Try out Sidetracks and Pinch instead.

Food isn’t bad, but the service and wait for the food was unbelievable. It took over an hour to receive my food, which was somewhat cold and stale tasting by the time I received it. The servers took their sweet time moseying around even when the bar was fairly empty. It pretty much seems as if no one takes their job seriously but expects to receive a quality tip. My tip for you is to get your shit together.

Nice little place, especially for Carbondale. Typical sports bar kind of set up. Average beer selection - some Schlafly, New Belgium. Food is OK, typical bar food - fried apps, a few salads, and burgers. I had a burger which was good. Not quite 10/10 like the other 2 reviews, not sure how they came up with that. Maybe the owners of the bar?

Great bar. One of the better selections of top end stuff when compared to the rest of Carbondale. Definitely my favorite place in Carbondale. The food is really good and they just redid their menu so its gotten even better. The staff is really friendly and they have some of the best drink specials around. *edit* the new employees seem to be a bit lackluster. I guess its to be expected for any college town with a new influx of people all the town and a high turn around but nowhere near as good as it was last time I ate there.
