I remember when Charlie's was where the Blockbuster building is, and the cast iron lobster and crab out front. They had those out at the 203 location too. I wonder what happened to those.

I didn't eat but agree the band was great!!!!! The set up could have been a little better on the band side they did set up more tables later in the night but placement seemed awkward. Had a good time though, seemed like a decent crowd :-) id go back for sure :-)

Not exactly the professional response I expected from the owner/owners of this business.

Cliental = Clientele
selfs = selves
Customers, do not equal trash

After re-reading this post, surely, you aren't really the owner of this business, right?

If you aren't, and are only an employee, your boss might lose it over your response to people who are complaining.

Do him a favor, and don't do him any favors!

You have been misinformed. I was the one working last night when they came in. They both had ID, but if you look closely enough the ID put them at not turning 21 until the end of the month. I sent them on their way. They were NOT served in our bar.

The fines prove otherwise. They don't write you thousands of dollars in fines without solid evidence.

They just got caught in a liquor control sting serving minors and you say they don't do it? If they didn't serve minors, they wouldn't be getting fined.

It is the owner. They just don't want to admit that they called this whole town trash because they would never see a dollar from this town again. But it happened.

In the case of Whiskey Jake's serving minors, what actions were taken? In some instances where an establistment serves alcohol to minors, the minors, the servers and the owner are all taken to jail and charged. In some they are only ticketed and fined. What happened with the situation at Whiskey Jakes? Did they arrest the trash-talking wanna-be uppity bartenders that think that they are too good to serve customers from Granite "Shitty" or did they arrest the irresponsible, unprofessional owner of this place who allows his classless, rude employees to insult the entire community that he expects his new business to succeed in? Were the minors that they served taken into custody or did the just write tickets to everyone and fine the establishment that is careless and disrespective of the law enough to think that they can serve their "classy clientle" minor friends that only live in "E'ville".

Yes sir. A more disgusting place with a more low-life clientele I have never seen.

That place is a cesspool who's purpose is to provide a place to and use drugs and to allow STDs to intermingle.

It was a sting operation. The police were taking minors bar to bar seeing which bars were checking ID's and which weren't. So the minors were not fined or arrested. I can't be sure but more than likely the bar got fined and more than likely so did the bartender that served them.

We DO NOT think its ok to serve minors. Thousands of dollars in fines? Not sure where your getting that information from but that is incorrect. I'm not saying that we have never been fined, but it has been very rare. We do our best to make sure no one under the age of 21 drinks in our bar.
