Tried this place last night. Is a great place to sip some cheap, quality microbrew beers and good burgers and sandwiches. Keep in mind that the emphasis is on "Bar." There is one table with a couple benches inside, and a few outdoor tables on the sidewalk. Otherwise there is just the bar which can seat about a dozen. There was alternative rock music on the sound system.
Here is the menu on their Facebook page:
BEER. $3 // DRINKS. $4-$6
WINE. $4 // SHOTS. $4-$6
FOOD. $4-$6 // SIDES. $3
I forgot to grab one of their menus to post, but it is essentially divided between 5 or 6 types of burgers, sandwiches and sides. There are also a few daily specials posted on a board over the bar.
We settled on a couple draft "Magic Hat" beers; I had the BSB Burger (Sauteed onions, cheese, mushrooms and chipotle sauce) and my friend had a grilled turkey, Swiss and mushroom sandwich on rye. We also split a basket of onion rings (Seem to be the same "black & tan" rings featured at Boom and now at JS BBQ and Lil Masters Grill.)
All the food was well prepared and tasty, beer was cold and the atmosphere was nicely appointed old school neighborhood bar. Service was very friendly if a little shaky at times (Could have used napkins, had to grab some cocktail napkins from the bar supply tray). All in all it is a pleasant place without any of the "attitude" that some folks on this board have noted about some of Asbury's recently opened establishments.
The prices could not be beat. Bill for the 2 of us was $26 before tip.
