Without doubt a welcome addition to the music scene (Friday night's BudgetRock garage music for a measly $3 and Sunday's free Oyster BBQ shows being the buzz draw)... it's most likely the unpretentious atmosphere that comes with the joint's happy, integrated mix of rockers, bikers, blue-collar joes, and neighborhood couples that wins most folks over.
