Formerly Johnny's Packer Inn, I hadn't been here in years but we were meeting my friend & her spouse who works there 2 days a week. We had a great time! The beers on tap were great & I love the oatmeal stout - on tap! How I miss WI bars! (I'm dispaced in the South...) We played a card game for a chance at about a $2k pot & for $10, I unfortunately did not win anything but it was fun.The service was speedy & attentive, the female barkeep was lively, the crowd happy & amiable & the atmosphere on a Monday evening was perfect. Not too crowded, not dull & fun. We'll be back - especially when Al is working!

Chiefs is your neighborhood blue collar bar. They have excellent bands on weekends. Chiefs doesn't serve food but, you can order world famous Bucks pizza which across the street and the bar staff will pick your Zaa up a mb d deliver to your table.

Good variety of craft beers. Wouldn't recommend 'The Wisconsinite' their house cocktail on tap, odd flavored whiskey, sour, ginger something or other, which I ordered thinking to was a beer. All other drinks were good and staff working hard for the large crowd that was there for a Saturday afternoon.
