This bar, at one point in the past, was excellent. They had the cheapest drink prices in town, the best service, the best ambiance, the best everything. Now, I do not know what has happened. They put televisions in the back room, which is weird because one of the drawing points to Manuels was their lack of televisions. This was supposed to be a bar where you enjoy nice conversation. Ever since they had the ""debate night"" deals going on this place has attracted unwanted patrons! These people will visit once a month and the servers will flock to them! I have been going to this place at least once every 2 weeks for the past 2 years. Sometimes I would visit up to 3 times a week. The last three times I have been to this place I had to wait at least 10 minutes to get my usual PBR pitcher, to start. Tonight I had to walk out because I was IGNORED for 10 minutes. No one said a word, or even acknowledged the fact that we were there. There were 3 of us by the way. I can understand if I was a bad tipper, but I would generally tip 8$-10$ on a 20$ bar bill! Which is upwards of 33%. I never came in with a large crowd making ridiculous demands. I just wanted a few PBR pitchers and maybe some Terrapin, or another type of pitcher, that is all. It is sad for me to say that I won't go back. I think Midtown bars, or maybe just those bars off of North Highland have just all gone to shlt. I am writing this because I want to say thank you for killing Manuels you stupid fwcking yups, and you piece of shlt suburbanites! You have done your worst and made this bar intolerable. This place was awesome, but in such a short time it is dead! Hopefully, Manuels will realize they are driving the people that ACTUALLY LIVE IN MIDTOWN away! I even feel sorry for the John McCain guy (his review is below mine), and I hate John McCain. I hope he finds a place where he can go and enjoy a nice PBR.
Pros: This place was once awesome
Cons: Their service is slowly getting awful!
