Great music, lousy service – Upon entering, The Hungry Tiger looks like your local pub. Nice atmosphere, many unique wall decorations including photos of many performers who have been there. The food was good. When the band began playing, it was a bit too loud for the size of the space. Be sure to bring your earplugs or the ringing will be unbearable the next day. That's where the niceties stopped. Getting a drink was very hard. The waitress ignored our party for very long stretches. The head bartender (as told by a few patrons) was rude. When waiting for a drink, she spent a lot of time chtting with the regulars, completely ignoring others at the bar. Tough to miss people waiting for a drink since the bar is only about 14 feet long. When she would walk by and I tried to get her attention, she would rudely say things like, 'if you don't wait your turn, I won't serve you ' or "Don't call me, I will get to you when I am done with them(the regulars at the end of the bar)" and the proceed to go to them and chat for a bit. Many people at the bar said she is rude all the time and won't serve you if, as they said, "she gets her undies in a bunch". Overall, it's a nice place, but the service staff could use some training classes.
Not recommended. – On a Thursday night, the cover charge was quite high to see an unknown band. The guy at the door said the band was famous. I had doubts about this claim to fame since the place was nearly empty! We sat down at a table, and I was enjoying the evening until...The band started playing. I don't know what the sound guy was thinking of, but he cranked up the PA to its absolute maximum. It was painfully loud. I could not get the server's attention for another drink because she could not hear me. We had to get the drinks at the bar, and even then I was screaming into the bartender's ear. I wasn't expecting to need earplugs listening to a blues band in a bar where the crowd numbered no more than twenty. We didn't stay long, but my ears were ringing the next day. Unacceptable.
Seven nights a week there are acoustic sets, blues jams and national acts on stage. – The Scene
There's an intimate ambiance at Hungry Tiger that can't be matched by any other club in the area. Where else could you push a car out of a snow bank with bluesman Matt Murphy during his break? Or hang out with the evening's performers before their show? You may even get to share some Tex-Mex before their set. The club's capacity is only 150, so there's always a friendly vibe.
Ten beers on tap (Bass, Labatts, Red Stripe), 15 bottled domestics and imports, specialty rums and tequilas and a full bar to mix up cocktails. Ribs, burgers and six varieties of wings are highlights of the primarily Tex-Mex menu. Folks fill up each Monday before the open-mic Blues jam with all-you-can-eat fajita specials.
best damn everything – check out michelle.......... shes the best!!! the live music every night is also a plusplusplus!!! the people that rotate thru the bar are some great easy going people, laid back and looking for fun!
