This is a one-of-a-kind place! The friendliest neighborhood bar you could ask for. The Karaoke scene is alive and well at the Merrimaker! We went there to have a drink on New Years and we couldn't believe our ears... a LIVE BAND! Wow, that was cool. But most of the year it's either the juke box or, on the weekends, Karaoke. There are several pool tables that are almost always in use. The staff is always friendly and the place seems to be a great 'hang out' for the locals of all ages. I'd give it a full five stars if they had live music more often then once a year.
Pros: Unpretentious, friendly place. Very reasonably priced drinks. Great Karaoke.
Cons: Although perfect place for bands, only live music once a year.
