HEY, ya got to stop into the Blue Max Tavern in Old Town Kissimmee,Fl. next time your in Disney area. this is a restaurant & kind of English pub atmosphere, with an actual WW I single seat bi-plane hanging from the ceiling. there is a lot to look at on the walls while there and also Karaoke in the evening till closing.
But the real gem here is the Italian Bartender that works weekdays and Lately according to him on Sundays. He is formerly from Brooklyn, N.Y. but has not lost that distinctive accent. Phil, as he likes to be called, has a knack for making you feel special while visiting. He not only will serve cocktails but tell you jokes while your visiting the Tavern.
Unlike other watering holes we have visited where they only conversation is ""what do you want to drink"" , Phil the ""Italian Bartender"" makes you laugh, makes food suggestions, serves food, and all whit a special attitude and smile that most servers lack these days.
If you enjoy Karaoke, they start at 8pm till 2am however,,
the night time staff are a little weird! They are not as friendly, the females have their boobs hanging out, and their is a scary Para-military guy running around with American flags cursing and screaming at customers from England for starters!!!! ~~REALLY??
Are the owners unaware of this tribal behavior, drunken staff, and a drug induced Jack Sparrow using profanities on perspective repeat business. All that aside if you can get past that, the DJ is moody bbut the songs are plentiful.
Stop by and see PHIL the Italian Bartender from Brooklyn and he will suggest lunch items, Caribbean cocktails and outright provide a memorable afternoon ~~~~~~~~ 5 stars daytime\ 1 finger at night!!!
