The Mahuffer Bar is a great dive with "sometimes live music, sometimes live food!" This is one of those beach shacks that you can go and let your hair down and really have a good time without worrying about impressing anyone.

I knew our visit would be good when we were greeted at the door by a huge white pit bull and a matching white pit bull pup. We entered the establishment and were surprised to see a parrot near the door. Soon we sat at the outdoor bar, ordered our beers and a cat walked across the bar to be petted by anyone and everyone. We were sitting by the fan, so my money on the bar was at risk of blowing off the bar, so they stuck it in a mousetrap--pure genius! The outdoor section of the place has a V-shaped bar, covered in graffiti, a ceiling decorated with old shirts and a few bras, a huge old shop fan covered in dust, and even a NASCAR race tire.

Our beers were $3 each for Yuengling, though during happy hour Miller Lites are just $1.

They do have a limited food menu, but they proudly pronounce that they do not serve Budweiser!
