Great environment, good tasting drinks, comedy makes the night. Not a place to eat when you're hungry however. Their food choice goes from a simple burger to a chips and melted cheese called "nachos". So if you get hungry when you drink make sure to bring some food. Haha.
Great comedy. Laughed for 2 hours. They serve burgers and nachos but the food is nothing to write home about. Come for the talent and drinks. Reasonable entry fee. 2 drink pp minimum
