Fodor's Review

Expect a family crowd in the day and a rowdier bunch at night at the Bodega and Big Al's Buffalo Steakhouse Stockade. Most evenings you can listen to live country or rock music; the entertainment moves outdoors in summer, when bands play in the stockade section. The Bodega has a rough past; from the 1890s until 1980, the upper floors were used as a brothel. The rooms now sit empty, although the secret buzzers and discreet back doors were removed only in the 1990s.
