The place was maybe 2/3 full around 7PM and apparently so understaffed it took about 45 minutes to an hour to deliver a sandwich order. Staff (friendly and working hard) blamed last day of groupon before expiring 7/3 for the rush, but the place wasn't full. Pretty smoky dirty looking kind of atmosphere. The regular clientele seem to reflect and appreciate that.

While they were friendly, the service was a bit slow, missed slightly on the two orders, and the restaurant/bar was smoke filled. Would be fine if you are a smoker. Terrible if not. Found they had an outdoor area to eat if preferred, but did not know until after sitting inside 55 minutes for food.

I would not have purchased the groupon if I was aware of their policy on accepting smokers. No way I could go in and enjoy a meal with smoke in the air. I placed an order to go - left - came back for pick up.

This establishment is not smoke-free, and the non-smokers did not have a separate area. I was gagging throughout my visit, and I ordered something that I really did not want.

The young bartender was very friendly and nice. The burger was good.

It was annoying to hear our server (who was the bartender) tell everyone, including us, that she was very busy and if we needed anything we could come up to the bar to get it. There were a total of 5-7 people at the bar, it was early and she wasn't busy -- just lazy. She was not happy to see our "Groupon". Groupon or not ---- I won't go back there again.

Went to Nippers last night to use my Groupon...and won't be back. The disappointment started when I ordered an appetizer for buffalo wings and was told that they "wouldn't have wings until Thursday or Friday." I chalked it up to a bit of bad luck and asked what the Soup of the Day was..."we don't have any soup." I was wondering if the waiter was playing a practical joke and realized he wasn't so I settled on the chicken strips platter tossed in buffalo sauce. To no surprise at this point it came out completely plain with the chicken, fries cold, and a small cup of buffalo sauce to dip(?) it in. I finished half the meal, and vowed to choose a better spot next time. Not recommended.

Kudos to your server/bartender.. he was the best experience for at your bar! The food was good as well. The atmosphere caters to those that do not respect the ears of others.. but I understand if that is your constant audience and the type of patrons you wish to repeat. Good choices of craft beers! Triton and Upland!

Sorry we are seniors and the smoke precludes us from returning. If non-smoking, we would return.

I am sure that It is a nice local bar but the smoke was unbearable for any non-smoker. I was unable to finish my meal in the bar because the smoke was so strong. I do not mind bars that allow smoking. I think that you should install a ventilation system!!!

From Our Editors

It’s not uncommon to spot owners Steve and Amy Ward at Nippers Grill & Tap, greeting the regulars or cheering on a game of darts. The duo takes great pride in the neighborhood atmosphere of their cheerful pub, where friends meet to swap stories over pints of frosty beer and no one feels too intimidated to take the stage for at least one song during Friday and Saturday night karaoke. Boisterous carousers compete in friendly games of pool, pausing every now and again to root for a sports team or sniffle at a heartwarming allergy-medicine commercial playing on one of the numerous flat-screen TVs. Elsewhere, tables and chairs and a lengthy wood bar host mountains of nachos, plump wings, and crispy fried pickles. During warmer months, Nippers Grill & Tap hosts games of corn-hole on its outdoor patio.
