Bartenders suckk – Decent atmosphere, bouncers were cool, food good... However, the bartenders were the worst - the two ugly females. How dare I be drunk in a bar?? Or question my bar tab.. You f-nasties suckk.
the BACK WH00RE – This is the ultimate after hours bar you go to since you are so sh1t faced you don't care about how dirty it is. The drinks are the stiffest and cheapest in town, and you can get a big pool rilvarly going on with bets on the table. You are sure to see some of the oldest bar goers intown here right along with some of the youngest. You may want to close your eyes in the bathroom also. I will say my boyfriend and his friends love to go there late at night and play pool for hours.
Best Dive Bar in Town – The Backdoor is the best dive bar in town for several reasons. One, the drinks are strong and cheap. What other reason is there to go to the dive bar other than to get a good buzz. Two, you never have to fight for a pool table. Three, there is a nice outdoor, heated smoking area. Four, good music most of the time. Five, the ABSOLUTE BEST BAR FOOD.
Most Accomodating Bar In Town!! – This bar is under the ownership of folks who KNOW how to please a customer. Best drinks and best drink prices. There are at least 40 other bars and clubs closer to me, but this is where I still hang my hat.
If you haven't tried their "Gunner" you definitely should drop in and order one, it's a house specialty and can be had NOwhere else!!
Best drink prices – Check out the totally new renovation of the bar area, not chopped up anymore and even added more big screen TV's. The food is not your standard bar food and the drinks are well worth your money. Check it out, some call it the best secret in town.
I never make it a double, don't have to... – The Backdoor is my favorite place to hang out. It's the "Cheers" of the Highlands. It's kind of tucked away, a lot of people don't even know it's there. But when I invite people to join me there for the first time, they all think it's a really cool bar & go back. I really like the diversity, you can find yourself sitting next to a doctor on one side & a goth on the other side. The drinks are tall & cheap & the food is the best bar food in town. The gameroom has darts, foos ball, arcade & there's plenty of pool tables. There's nice sized TVs scattered about, great place to watch the ballgames & I really enjoy the variety of music they play. It's open every night of the week, which is wonderful since my off days vary. The bartenders are ALWAYS courteous & they keep the drinks coming hard & fast. I also like the music
Dark& Dingy! – I'm usually pretty forgiving because I love a good dive bar, but Back Door didn't hit on much of anything. The maze of rooms, a feature that, if done well, can create character for a bar, just made it choppy and horribly impersonal. I felt like I was in some trashy basement party where I had to acutally pay for the beer. Oh, it wasn't all bad: the redneck couple fighting in the corner did add a bit of back woods charm.
HOLE IN THE WALL BUT GREAT PLACE – HAVE TO LOVE THE BACKDOOR. VERY MUCH A HOLE IN THE WALL BUT MAKES YOU FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE AND HAS A GREAT ATMOSPHERE. LOVE THE DRINKS AND PEOPLE
