Christie's has been around forever it seems, and with the new makeover, things have gotten better. The addition of a real grill means hot food! Burgers! Steaks! The addition also means they have to pay for it apparently, so the food seems a little pricey for the neighborhood, not way out of line, but you'll pay more there for a burger than other bars/restaurants in the area. Service is usually outstanding, and friendly, and beer/drink prices are right in line with everyone else in uptown...
Pros: Pool tables, and good food
Cons: A bit pricey on food, can often be very smoky
