Cool River Cafe
Cool River used to serve USDA Prime and their steaks were very, very good. Now it is Black Angus (not certified Prime) and the steaks are lacking.The nightlife is weak and the crows is aging. The same bands have been there for years and it is getting boring.At least you can still smoke here, even cigars. The Cigar Room is awesome and the staff and management are great to the regulars.Some nights depending on the Band that is playing the crowd can go from Cowboy to seedy to down right thugs, but Monday and Tuesdays are quite since there are no live bands.
It is an excellent place to get work done. The only drawback is the speed, as they are on DSL, and the Access Points are only 11mbps. Check out the Cigar Room for the quietest place to work. The music is usually quite, but due to the system they feed it with, sometimes songs get louder for no reason. On Thursdays and Fridays the bands often setup and tune in the afternoon, otherwise you can work and talk on the phone if needed. This is a smoking bar, with smoking permit. Smoking starts at 2pm daily.
