McMinns. Pubs can be hit or miss, especially with their smaller, non-marque pubs (read anything that is not the Edgefield or Kennedy School). Ringler's really shines, though. Excellent brews (thats a given), full bar, good (and cheap) eats, good tunes, cigar friendly, pool tables, open late. All of this adds up to one fine place to hang out. Funny, its not usually the first place i pick to go, but I seem to end up there a lot when other places just won't do. The service can be hit or miss, depending on who is on that day. It has ranged from excellent to slow and terrible for me, in the same week no less! Other than that minor quibble, it is all good.
Pros: cigar friendly, good, cheap eats, open late
Cons: spotty service, occaisionally loud
