Some of the rudest bartenders I have ever encountered. Watch out for the blonde with the filthy mouth and total lack of social skills. Food was atrocious - the grilled cheese will survive the Apocalypse. Hard wooden bar stools with no backs for the live music - pretty uncomfortable.
It's the neighborhood pub and then some! FANTASTIC staff and great clients! Everything on the menu is terrific; the music is always good - just feels like home with lots of friends!
Dropped in there April 10th to support the Bikers Against Child Abuse party. The band rocked from 1 to 7, all of the people were friendly, and the place was a blast.
Chris Diablo above must not know how to use his caps lock key.
It would be great to have a good place in Colorado Springs to see live music as opposed to cheap DJs pumping digitized dreck at you. Certainly the Thirsty Parrot has the stage and sound system to get the job done. The problem is typical... the management cannot be bothered to promote anything - even when the shows are going on under their own roof. No one bothers to even change the marquee. Free live music may be happening upstairs and no one downstairs would ever know about it, since all the management cares about is keeping their regular DJ acts pumping their worthless tripe near the kitchen, which always seems to be out of half the advertised items. That dive is going downhill fast. I don't expect it will survive summer 2010.
One of the best bands around! Jake has his own style, plays great music and puts on one hell of a show. Go Jake!
The service and the music is great. The pool table is a great addition along with the beer pong table. But check out the bartender/owner Mike. Talk about hot! Look out girls here he comes!
Great food! Great live music! And defintely the best staff in town. Fun and relaxing place to come hang out. The Cheers bar on the north end of town.
If you're out bar hopping downtown and have dulled your taste buds, the generic quality of the food may not bother you. Would recommend you stick to chips/salsa out on the back patio than invest in a meal here. Margaritas are what they're known for, for a reason!
Nosh's lunch menu was updated since the last time I had visited and it took me twice as long to order as I wanted to try EVERYTHING. I settled on a cup of squash and apple soup (although their new option for a soup trio was tempting) and their Brussel Sprouts with polenta, candied lemon zest, manchego and a Korean sauce/condiment called Kochujang. I was not disappointed. The soup, especially, was divine... the brussel sprout dish a nice mix of sweet and savory and good textures. Unfortunately we were too full to try dessert so no report there.
On my 'to try next' list: the roasted cauliflower plate with garlic, miso and caramelized onion and the chicken pistou sandwich. GREAT service - especially if you get Aspen.
The place where hard-drinking locals go and ski travelers stop in for a beverage on their drive back to the Springs (b/c they aren't aware of how many DUI's Teller Cty brings in). Burgers are great. Two pool tables, a juke box, and outdoor patio. Once in awhile, good live music.
Have been here several times and agree with most of the comments - GREAT staff, good food and drinks, but yes, it can get a bit noisy.
Went here to celebrate my birthday Feb. 2010. Ambience was unique, we sat on couches in the back b/c there was a group of us. I wasn't impressed with the sliders I ordered and would have liked to see a more diverse menu overall. This seemed to be the consensus of the group. If I just wanted to go for drinks, I might consider going back as their beers were good, but a bit pricey.
Stopped in to Oscar's for a late lunch last week and a Black and Blue Burger with home fries. It was darn near a 10! One of my favorite places to stop when Im downtown.
@ Ishhod -- get the real story about the "physical altercation" before repeating your slander. Granted I'm a fan of Oscar's and I've gotten the full story from Phil (the "OWNER") and I've been at the bar when the "female" in question has called well intoxicated to scream at the employees. Get some facts behind that story. Oscar's rocks -- go for the killer burger!
Always good! We stop in every week.
One of the best bars to hang out in. Great staff.
I won't eat there especially since the well mannered OWNER was involved in a physical altercation with a female customer. And the employees were too afraid for their jobs to speak against him.
Love the atmosphere. Very Southern. Food is pretty good. Great drink specials and occasional live music. Shrimp poboys and oysters is what I recommend
Here is a savory taste of the open blues jam on 31 Jan 10....
What a night!
Check this out! The HARDWAY rocks MST on Black Friday 09! Sugar Pop!
