Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Watering Hole. You’ve done the world some good today.

Nice staff, karaoke, nice for a quickie

Pleasant staff, and a decent tap selection (oddly Brooklyn Pilsner-- but no Lager), Smithwicks, etc. The bartender remembers your name and the waitress is always Johnny... er... Janey on the spot. Your empty glass won't stay that way for long. \r \r It's a skinny place with a few tables in the back. There's a large TV screen used on Thursdays (when we were there) for Karaoke. Some of the performers are... how can I... view more

Not the same miss you Joe

use to have a lot of fun here came in last Thursday and was informed Joe does not work there anymore, well let me just say he was the best part of the place, always the charmer. The new bartenders lack charm and no one there can really get a crowd going the way this guy could. He would even walk you to a cab at three in the morning a true gent, yes there are some left ladies. Anyway I speak for myself and the entire ... view more

Great Karaoke, Horrible Employees

A group of my coworkers and I went out on a Friday evening. Someone suggested TracyJ's. We get there around 10 and the place was super busy. We heard someone singing Every Step You Take which was awesome...we grabbed some drinks but there was nowhere to sit...not at the bar...not in the back. We kinda had to end up spreading out everywhere....which sorta sucked. Then later we all squeeze in at the bar and this w... view more

Avoid Talking to anyone, seriously

My girlfriend and I went here with a group of her friends for a kind of end of the night for a birthday outing. It was preplanned as this place was supposed to be excellent (when it was called Tracy J's). But, we quickly found out differently! My girlfriend grabbed us each a drink. As we stood and watched some of the Karaoke (which was actually kind of fun) a seat at the bar became available. We asked the guy ne... view more

cheap drinks, free tee-shirts

Tracy J's is a great after work spot if you work in the area\r the happy hour specials are great and the owner, Art loves to give out free tee-shirts and food to his patrons. \r the only downside to this bar is the attitude of the female bartenders who seem to hate everyone for no apparent reason. \r

Get there earlier than 8pm

It's a great place to watch TV, eat a delicious dinner at the bar, listen to the regualrs chat. The meatloaf is DELISH.

Scratch this off your list

We went here a few nights ago on what happened to be Karaoke Night. Turns out that it was a $7 minimum drink order per person, so my girlfriend paid $14 for our two light beers. When we went up to get what we assumed would be our second drink at no charge, the bartender charged us $5 a piece. ""So 24 bucks plus tip for four light beers?"" we asked. She said, ""I charged you $14 up front because that's the minimum, yo... view more
