    review rating 5  Three floors--three different atmospheres to drink or eat, hear live music/dance or whatsoever hootenannies. Narrow stairwells to negotiate on egress. Know your limit if you go to the open air deck up top... The stairs win against all inebriated users going down.... or up....

    review rating 4  It was a cold rainy night as we came through Kansas City and we found this spot to have everything we needed. Good drinks and good food. The tenderloin sandwich was great. The atmosphere was great as well, games and special events. Will recommend this place if you are looking for a good time and to have some good grub.
