Unfriendly owners...kathy the owner has nerve enough to take part of the little tips the bartenders make. These young girls are trying to raise familys and this greedy woman doesnt help. That is totally uncalled for. I will never go there again and neither will my friends

The End of Oxford as we know it, population 600, we have 2 bars now just what we needed Bad Brad's Bar! Drunks in the street, Police in town nightly for some kind of disturbance, no parking for other business, couldn’t our Village Board find something better to promote on Main Street, what’s next strip clubs?

Excuse me Ziv, Kathie is my step mother, she barely takes any of the tips, and she deserves tips because she works her butt off in there to get things done! And if you want to rag on a bar, take a stroll over to R Place and bust the druggies over there. Bad Brad's, my family's buisness doesn't support that crap and won't allow it. Thank you!!

I have been to this new bar, which I might say has a great friendly atmosphere, and NEVER were any of the bartenders or owners unfriendly. This bar is clean and the service was fantastic. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this bar to everyone. For a small town this add a bit of class and fun for anyone wanting to stop in.

owners should not take tips they make enough.. I worked in a few bars much nicer than this 1 and the owners never split tips. kathy and brad have the personality of a dead rat. Neither 1 of them chit chat with customers And both are very unfriendly

Ziv is correct. It is actually illegal for owners or salaried managers of bars or restaurants to make their employees share tips with them. I've been in this bar, and its a nice place compared to the dirt-bag patrons and nasty bartenders that are in the other places around Oxford.

Ziv and Zeek

You are actually both right and wrong about the tip law. If you check and read the law it depends on how the employees are paid and at what wage level. If an employee is paid a tipped min wage of $2.13 per hour then the owner is not allowed to split tips but at the same time that employee must report the tips they make to earn a wage or they are in violation of the law. Now if the employee is paid the regular minimum wage of $7.25 per hour it is perfectly legal for the owner to split tips. If you owned and or work in a bar you did not know they law???? Now whether it is right or wrong to split tips that is another question. I feel if the owner is tending bar with another employee they should keep their own tips. Now if the owner is acting as a bus person or cook for the bar tender who serves the food and gets the tips then i feel the employee should split tips with the owner at a 10 to 20 percent rate which is the industry standard. Now as to this bar being friendly that is a judgment we all have to make. Maybe they are as friendly to you as you are the them and you Ziv do not seem like a real friendly person.

I will never step foot in either establishment. The owners of Bad Brad's here in oxford are liars and hypocrites. The food in the so called Fine Italian Dining restaurant is frozen, the pasta is not fresh. I can make better crap at home. They treat their customers like trash and expect them to come back, yeah not this woman! I am not that hard up for a beer that I would ever go there!
