Lest ye forget the truth of the past, it was DAVID E. DAVIS and THOMAS D. ALLEN who opened the BFL. Their motto (and best selling t-shirt) was NO RICE-NO ICE....and important distinction that the ill mannered Sabina has thrown to the uneducated palates of the masses by allowing said lesser fare to be consumed in those once hallowed (and far more entertaining)halls. Originally a proper Beer Garden, it is now just a bar....a good bar, but with the death of Tom and the permanent slandering Dave Davis (the man who made ALL OF IT HAPPEN - and also the man who built it over 8 months time in 1994), the place lacks the credibility this piece assigns it. The BFL was once one of kind, they served over 1.2 million dollars in $4 pints the first year but was stymied in the one attempt to expand and remodel to the east (where a horrible sports bar now resides). But BEER in of itself, is a wonderful thing, and no one can knock their support of it - short of not allowing SCOTT KING and MILK IT PRODUCTIONS (Scott being their earliest bartender/manager and now a very reputable brewer) onto their rather snob oriented taps (while still serving Bud -SHAME-). Additionally, and finally - please note that Dave and Tom styled the BFL after the greatest beer bar in the country - THE TORONADO in San Francisco as designed by David Keene.
It is a dump with a lot of know it all drunk loud mouths....it is closer to the Manson Family sorry chef was wrong or drunka,
Such a great idea.... New owner very arrogant no business sense. Son is even worse! Just acts like he's 16...Was bound to fail suprised lasted as long as it did! Knew was matter of time before it closed. Time to get a real businessman or team in there!!!!!

Sabrage is the most disgusting place on the planet. The bouncers are abusive and very aggressive. The bouncer stirling harasses girls and kicks them out when he doesn't get attention. There's constantly people smoking pot in the patio. Never going back there!
Great venue. Saw Adam Ant.
I visited Lena about four weeks ago. The atmosphere was great as my wife an I had fine dining outside net to Main St. Ann Arbor people are great! The scallops were fabulous. My wife had a veggie sandwich with large Portobello mushroom portion. The presentation was outstanding. The drinks were strong and well portioned. We will definitely return
Fun place, but they allow a bathroom attendant in the men's room only. When I chose to use the sink he hadn't emptied the soap from, I got kicked out of the bar. Who is more important, the customer dropping a $100 bar tab, or the bathroom attendant? To 526 Main, it's the bathroom attendant. Seems silly.
Just making sure everyone knows everything available at the park. Used to be those were the only sorts of beers you could get. Even after Comerica Park opened, craft beer and expanded beer didn't appear until relatively recently from what we understand. Give the people what they want! ( :
Could have save a lot of space by editing out everything from Miller Lite to Amstel Light
Decided to go for happy hour and in reviewing menu for half off
appetizers, oysters Rockefeller at $1.50 each. Regular menu pricing is $9.99 for six. Correct happy hour price should be approx.
$5.00 for the oysters Rockefeller. Waitress mentioned their working on the half off appetizer menu, so buyer beware. Plus oysters presented a non-fresh odor....
"A simple omelet covered in chili is the best hangover cure." what a funny speech ! i like this its a NYC picture to saw,i love fun always which funny ts favorite to me
Every venue could take a lesson from Smalls. Ticket sales to customer service.
Nice place. Wish it was open in the late afternoon for Happy Hour.
I agree with everything you said, but I would recommend Kuhnhenn's DRIPA. Not only does that thing continue to win awards, but every time I go there, despite promising myself that I will order different beers I haven't tried, I end up throwing back a couple of those bad boys. Otherwise, perfect list...
Its not the prettiest place but its coming along slowly but surely. Great grilled cheese sandwiches and great drinks. A local hole with alot of character.
Love Moo Cluck Moo! The staff is so nice and the food is great!
