I went here with my husband on a recommendation from a friend. I love dive bars so I was optimistic about this place. It wasn't very crowded when we walked in so we chatted up a gentleman behind the bar. He treated us like a burden and

A great hang out place. They are a classic pub, they are family owned and always are welcoming. Great prices, you won't find overpriced drinks here. The food is good too. I recommend!!

They have a large selection of food from wings to burgers to specials like lasagna to eggs and hash. I can count the specials are really good & fresh. Its a great place know for the BBQ. You can also smoke on one side of the restaurant. I live a few miles away & eat their at least 2 times a month, everything is good.

This place is a great little hang out. They even have good chicken fingers. The waitress got to know us since we were regulars. They always have affordable beer. The bathrooms isn't to bad. They have a cool jukebox that you can choose your own music. Nice hangout spot

Classic "dive" bar, which I mean in the best way, it's dark, cozy, inviting. As a regular patron, I still find the staff friendly and professional, and they often have my "starter" drink (water, no lemon) waiting for me when I walk in the door. Even if we stop ordering food and drinks a couple of hours before leaving we are never made to feel that they want us to rush out to free up the table for incoming customers, which is easy to take for granted, but is unusual in most restaurants.

The food is good. The barbecue is made on-site in their huge "smoking" gun in front of the building, so I consider it their signature food item. That doesn't mean it's their best food, because the salads, hamburgers and grilled chicken sandwiches are always good, too. This makes it more difficult to choose from the menu, since I have to choose from a variety of good food and there isn't one true "fall back" best food item for me. They also have the standard bar foods like chicken wings, chicken fingers, fries, etc.

Besides the standard menu, there is also an extensive daily menu that changes, well, daily. This includes different side items, soups, desserts, and entree specials and I always look forward to seeing if there is something new I will be able to try from this menu.

I haven't investigated the variety available at the bar, so I cannot speak with authority on their beers and liquors. That said, I believe they have a good range of beers on tap and in bottles. However, I have yet to order a drink they don't have or can't make.

Rusty Nail has an interesting atmosphere. There is a bar, which has regular patrons. I would describe the Rusty Nail as "Cheers" with good food. The salads are great. Fully stocked bar. Good place to go hang out.

Stopped in for dinner. Great bar menu with the usual burgers, chicken sandwiches, salads and wings. But they have a separate menu with "home cooked" specials, including fried chicken, meat loaf, lasagna, country fried steak, mashed potatoes, squash & tomatoes, and EXCELLENT mac 'n cheese. I had the country fried steak, which was HUGE, and cooked perfectly. Crispy batter, tender steak, served with creamy pepper gravy. There's a full bar serving liquor, beer and wine, all at very reasonable prices. Service was great. Several TV's playing a variety of sports, and a juke box playing mostly southern rock. Nice, laid-back, comfortable atmosphere for relaxing, having a drink and a stick-to-your-ribs meal.

Pros: Convenient location; plenty of parking; good food; good service.

Cons: Smoking at the bar, so there's there's the faint smell of smoke when you first walk in.

Great place for a grilled chicken sandwich, they have a wide variety to choose from. Inexpensive beers also, highly recommend if your looking for good pub food and a laid-back atmosphere.
