These guys are great. A good friend of mine, and also a regular at this bar, was fundraising for cancer, and Smaltimore helped her out, but giving her a percentage of the proceeds from that night. I had been a little anti this place since the name is such a local joke, but the flags that hang outside are all from NY. Meh. One visit changed my mind.
As far as sports bars go, this is the spot to watch a game and grab a bite. There are a ton of TVs and high top communal tables which makes sports even more fun. The TVs are smaller than say Mussel Bar, but the ambiance, service and food is SO much better.
Plus, they have specials every night. Specials on food even during happy hour – Woot Woot! My group was there on a Wednesday, so we had 2 sliders with fries or tots (not sure who ever chooses fries when faced with this option.. hah) with a beer for $10. I went with the bison sliders with LTO and a side of mayo. I thought these were good. Not the best, but hey, they are sliders – so temps are always going to be a little off. But, I’ll be coming back here for a burger before going to many of the “burger” spots in the city.
It’s also kind of fun with the beer – they do a supply and demand style pricing – “The more pints of beer X that are sold the higher the price goes and the price of beer Y and Z goes down respectively.” I am sure it helps to keep their supply fresh and current. Smart.
