We love Marian! This is the best, most friendly place! The music is great, it’s decorated really cute and it’s very clean!


Long time customer! I recently caught the owner MaryAnn inflating my tab in comparison to the other bartenders. Not offering an itemized receipt at this location for tabs.I am a sober person only resorting to NA options. Spending hundreds of dollars a month at this location. When I confronted her about it she was super snarky and disrespectful like I owed her something. I can only imagine what she is doing to other people. Sorry but I'm not coming back. I'll take my business as one of your best customers elsewhere!

Marion and the entire Back Bar gang were phenomenal! I’ve never met a more friendly, kind, and helpful staff. And if things ever goes south like they can in a bar scene, they handle it in the most professional and mature manner I’ve experienced.

I’ve been coming to this bar for three years. Great environment, and great service even when busy on college nights. The owner and bartenders are catering more than they need to be, and make you feel comfortable.

They lady bartender ( possible owner ?) was very rude. Doesn’t know how to serve customers in a timely/ orderly manner also. Tries to make sad excuses when you call her out on it, then gets upset at you. I will never be back to that bar again. By reading reviews just now, this seems like a theme.

The best bar of all time.

The BEST Free Poker on Monday nights at 6:30

The owner made a scene about me asking about the charges on my bill. Nathan (the bartender) threw a fit about my questioning and was threatening us. This is not a bar you want to go to for a good time. I will not be going back. Be cautious before going to this bar!!

They said my friends ID was fake. Had to call the police in order to get his ID back. Disappointed to say the least. But glad to see they take underage drinking seriously even though …..
