The Mac n cheese appetizer is like a party in your mouth!! Orgasmic
The best bar in all of NC and now I can say New York too. They are also home of the one and only Dug the bartender. Best bartender around.

MC is the best bartender ever. The Sting is the best drink ever. The loaded tots are the best drunk food ever. Also great for meal time!
by Charlie L.
The Terrapin Kolsch was yummy!
by Donna E.
Be careful what beer size you order. Some beers are a pint and some a 12oz. They will bing you at 12oz of a pint special. #bartenderhustle
