Great Place...Staff and Vibe make up for everything@ – BAD reviews are usually disgruntled employees so after seeing some of these reviews who are far to informative to have been a customer I thought I'd throw my thoughts and opinion out there on a spot that's exactly what it's supposed to be...a chill place to have a great time without the overpriced drinks and where they'll remember your name the next time you walk in the door!
RACKS IS AN AWESOME PLACE TO ENJOY ON ANY OCCASION...WHETHER IT BE A BEER AFTER A LONG DAYS WORK WITH THE CO WORKERS, A SPOT TO SHOOT A GAME OF POOL AND HANG WITH FRIENDS OR TO HAVE THAT WILD AND CRAZY GIRLS OR GUYS NIGHT OUT AND THE PERFECT SPOT FOR THAT BLOODY MORNING THE NEXT DAY FOR THE "HAIR OF THE DOG THAT BIT YA'"
THE STAFF IS FRIENDLY, SHOTS AND DRINK SPECIALS ARE ALWAYS GOING AND FLOWING AND THE BARTENDERS ARE PRETTY DAMN HILARIOUS AND VERY ACCOMMODATING. MY FAVORITE RESIDENT BARTENDER IS A LAS BY THE NAME OF SARA, ALWAYS THERE WITH A SMILE ON HER FACE AND AN AWESOME ATTITUDE!
DEF RECOMMEND RACKS TO ANYONE...FROM POOL LEAGUES AND POKER TO THE DIVERSE CASUAL ATMOSPHERE...ITS A GREAT NEIGHBOR HOOD BAR AND A WELCOMED CHANGE FROM THE NORMAL CROWDED DOWNTOWN SCENE...
Uhhh...stay away – This place has so much more it could offer. Unfortunately, it doesn t offer it. The alcohol selection is the smallest I ve ever seen. You have about 15 choices and don t ask them to make a specialty drink commonly found in a bar book. They don t know how or they simply don t have the selection. Beer, well the bucket idea is on the spot but the tap beer is not exactly frost-cold and it is often flat. I think they have 6 tap selections - nothing exotic and nothing that people really buy unless you re a Bud man. They have plenty of that. Pool tables are abundant however they have leagues every night and the league players are rude. The bar caters to the league players no doubt about it. They have a poker section which takes up all of the chairs that are regularly in front of the bar where 3 or 4 cocktail tables are. So if you re looking for a place to sit when there is poker, forget about it. The servers and bar tenders - no complaints there but it doesn t take a rocket scientist either to create a couple dozen drinks from the lack of selection. I want to commend the one female blond server though I cannot remember her name. She does seem to remember everyone and does her best. Poor thing probably doesn t make a ton of cash since the amenities are few. There is no food so don t ask. When I did ask, Tony (heavy set bald bartender) shook his head and walked away...nice. Getting back to the pool tables, the felt is horrible and slow. There are nicks or tears in many of the tables and a couple sit close to the leagues. The league players put their sticks on a couple of those tables and a table rests so close to a support beam and so close to the bathrooms that they are relative unusable. The house sticks are old and nothing flashy but since the place caters to the APA pool leaguers, I don t believe they care to do much about the house sticks. There is usually this petite New York sounding, black haired, lace wearing woman walking around...oh yah she walks around alright. In and out - seems like a rental if you ask those I ve been there with but for someone looking for a cheap piece of meat, that may be the one saving grace this place has going for it. Walk in, look around...I wasn t that impressed. Oh, did I mention they have had a help wanted sign on the front door the first time I went (about 2 months ago) and still have that same sign on the door. Hmm...that should say something. Even servers needing a job don t want to work there. Probably because the APA leaguers don t tip very well. Come in, look around and remember this review...don t tell me I didn t tell you so.
Worst bar on Wells Branch – This is the dirtiest, filthiest bar I have ever been in. Roaches playing football on the bar....nasty drunk and rude bartender, I'll never go back....
