Reviews for The Atomic Fern

4.5 stars rounding up because - * It's a dive bar that's not that divey (and not too expensive) * Board game selection is amazing - we were with some non-regulars so we played Codenames and Blokus, but they had tons of titles incuding Seven Wonders, Carcassone, plus tons of games we never heard of

This little bar has an amazing assortment of board/car games and a nice variety of beer and other drinks. I would highly recommend going on a game night because it's a nice way to meet new people and try new games. They don't have food, but you're allowed to bring it in, so that's really fun! Would definitely recommend!

Went here a few times. I like the vibes and the idea. I happened to sit at the table with the flickering light on board game night (no big deal, they'll probably fix that) and the bartender was nice. There was this dude sitting at the bar though that claimed he knew the owner. Not sure why he felt the need to tell me that since I wasn't talking to him at all, but I won't let that reflect on the ownership since I haven't met the owner yet.
