The Hours: Happy Hour Daily 6 am - 7 pm

The Details: $4 Mini Pitchers, $3 Pints, Bar Menu -- Burgers, Cheese Fries, baskets.

The Interior:  It takes a minute for your eyes to adjust to the dark, but once you do, it's soothing. The majority of the actual lighting comes from the neon signs, the five televisions, the video games and the lights above the pool tables. We sat at the secondary bar, a long counter style structure with padded edges and bar stools surrounding it.

The Conclusion: We were very satisfied. It was just $17 for a cheeseburger, a combo appetizer basket (fried zucchini, mushrooms and mozzerella sticks) and 2 mini-pitchers of beer. Sometimes all we need is predictability, a little bit of comfort. The Hidden House did not fail to satisfy. It was just what we expected. Decent (Fat Tire) beer for cheap and reliable bar food: fried goodness in a red plastic basket lined with red and white checked deli paper. Ahhh...cheeseburger and fries.

The bartender was the nicest, most courteous sort. She was friendly without being cloying, and very prompt. Quite possibly the best bar service we've had in a long time.

We watched Larry King Live on CNN. He was interviewing the cast and participants from Dancing with the Stars. Without the sound on, we made up our own dialogue. The four other TVs were broadcasting NCAA Women's Softball for the sports-minded folks.  We enjoyed our carbs and TV without pretense.

Overall Grade = B+
