had staff kick me out because I bumped into an off duty staff member him
Pros: none, will get arrested
Cons: coming here will give you free go straight to jail free card
I spent part of my evening as a returning veteran at this bar. My very first weekend back. The beginning of my time at FCLC bar was very pleasant, the bar tender and I were making funny jokes back and forth to each other. However, when it came time to pay my tab, the bar tender (a blonde woman named Danni) became extremely rude towards me. While I attempted to understand why such hostility was being directed towards me, I am being backed off by my friends. I had no quarrel with the staff, however I was being treated like riff-raff, being cursed at and physically threatened by the bar back to "break my knee" if I didn't leave. I simply and calmly requested my bill for what I owe, as well as a simple explanation for why I was being treated in such a way. From this point, the staff claimed they were on the phone with the police, stating that I was acting belligerent and were to have me arrested for something I didn't do. When I asked for the manager, the bartender (Danni) claimed she was the manager. After being publicly humiliated, physically threatened, and cursed for my military service, there is no chance in my lifetime that I will ever return to this establishment, nor recommend
Went down on a Tuesday night with dog. Had decent experiences at bar before. But that night I ended up with permanent scars on my face and 24,000 in medical bills. No one helped the investigation out. Seems like, the coward who did this to me is being protected by the bar. Who stabs someone in the face when they are intoxicated. Hope they know Karma is a bitch.
Pros: They don't stop serving you
Cons: Clicky. And they don't stop serving you and everyone else.
The new owner has done a wonderful job! the staff is very outgoing and friendly and there always seems to be a good crowd. There drink specials are great and they have a good variety of them. Please to see it turning around!
Pros: New Ownership
Pros: Cozy bar with great atmosphere and all kinds of great people. Fun for anyone and everyone. Cheap drinks and specials like the $2 shot and a beer!
Cons: Just wish it was a little bigger.
The "owner" physically assaulted someone while I was there for no reason do I left. I was never offered a drink, and felt judged the whole.. 7 min I could stand to be in the place. For someone who claimed to own the place she was extremely unprofessional. I hope the place gets shut down theres too many good people out there who could run a bar better.
Cons: the service sucks, the place is small, the people who work there are rude and trashy.
