I used to work there as a waitress. Everyone was nice. some customers did get a little bit rowdy.
My favorite was the bucket of rocks and wings. You would get 10,20,30 for 2,4,and 6 bucks and the beer was 3.50f for a bucket of 6- 8 oz. of course that was back in 95-96 The have the best chili ever. Would love to go back there.

I've never been to the restaurant section so I'm not reviewing the whole establishment. I am only reviewing the bar. I usually order the Long Island Iced Tea and I usually don't go there any earlier than 9pm.

Should I come here?
If you want to go to a bar then yes. If you want to go to a ritzy lounge with free-form Jazz lighting the background with a gentle hue of sound then NO. I wouldn't say it's quite a dive, but it's close. It's more like a pub. If you don't have a problem with noise and understand the purpose of going to a pub, then yes.

Are the other reviews accurate since yours is so different?
The reviewers probably went to the G-Man bar thinking it was something different and were only disappointed when it didn't match their expectations.

All in all:
It is a pub not a fancy lounge. You go, sit in a loud and noisy environment, relax and enjoy your drinks. Maybe catch some of the sports on the countless widescreens bolted to the walls or even talk with your friends or partners. I, personally, have never experienced any problems that the other reviewers spoke of in terms to the barkeep.

I wouldn't travel from far and wide to come here. It also is not extraordinary. But, it's a nice bar. Enough said.

Shady bar with shady people. If you're a female, do not go without male company or else feel extremely unsafe and badgered by disgusting men all night long who won't take no for an answer. I felt very unsafe there and the bartenders and staff are a joke. Rude doesn't even express how terrible they were and when asked for a manager name, they refused to give one - which from previous statements it doesn't look like they care. Police should be checking out this place, there really appears to be some shady underground drug action going on there from what I hear. I don't live in the area and was visiting a friend, so I don't plan on returning. If you want to get raped or treated very badly then I suggest going, but otherwise, save yourself the headache!

Had a Budweiser draft here once and it tasted horrible.

Their takeout selection is pretty bad. It's mainly microbrew stuff (which is a good thing. but PRICEY!)

Don't waste your time giving good tips here, they aren't appreciated.

If for some reason you can't bear being in New Cumberland for NT trivia then this place might do. Personally
i think it sucks that I would rather drive and leave early as to not court a DUI thank drop in a place within walking distance just because the service is SO ungodly bad that I cant bear walking in the door to pay even dollar tip to some tramp that makes me wait a half hour to get a single beer just because she is too busy ass kissing some loser at the other end of the bar
) this happens every time...unless i bring a girl in which case she ass kisses me until me girl gets pissed...not great workers there...Jesus. go without a date, expect to buggered by bar swanks you wouldn't nail with your buddy's hammer n u might like it. assuming u don't care about service until next week that is...or food without hair in it.

That last reviewer sounds like he should be getting his drinks at the local Ritz-Carlton. Yes... the music is hard and loud. Yes the bartendresses get bitchy when it gets busy. And yes... the manager doesnt give a f*ck what you think. If it were anything else I wouldnt go there to drink every once in awhile. The food is good too. Get the cheese fries.

I went with an open mind. I went specifically to play Buzztime Trivia and Buzztime Holdem.

PROS: The food is excellent, and the service is better than expected. It is a decent people-watching place.

CONS: Buzztime is not generally well-attended there; I usually played alone. When they get crowded, which isn't that often, the bartendresses start becoming impatient and short. The stuff coming out of the juke box is loud, mind-scrambling, invasive, and pretty darn annoying after awhile. Lately, they started stocking the juke boxes with vulgar and violent chants. That gave the place a "dive" atmosphere. That was the last straw for me. A letter to management was never answered, and I haven't been back.

The place has potential, but it seems they just don't care what people think. So be it. I will spend my money elsewhere.
