My wife and I had a blast! Stopped in by accident for a drink and ended up eating. Food was fresh. Cocktails were great. Atmosphere was even better. Highly recommend!


Awesome joint. Food was excellent and the bartenders were awesome. Good layout lots of room to hang out.

If you sit outside, you get a smaller beer. After asking about it, the bartender lied and said it was the same size as a pint, and that it just looks smaller. There is clearly a 12 printed on the bottom of the plastic cups. So overall, we got ripped off for multiple beers worth. This might be illegal because we did Not get what we paid for.

The summer squash is unbelievable. I don't even like vegetables. Order it.

Visiting from out of town. Was looking for a drink and some food. Came across The Showdown and was pleasantly surprised. The bartenders were great and very friendly, which is what you expect when sitting at a bar. Had the Tito's Moscow Mule and Cheeseburger. Both outstanding! Highly recommend this place. Would definitely return. Thanks!

Came here yesterday for the first time and liked the menu plenty. Their samosas were a super good value and helped tide me over before dinner. Shot-and-a-beer combos were good too! Their music was pretty raunchy and I think it didn't quite match but it was fine. And their outdoor seating was off-kilter which made it easy for a bit of spilled beer to slide down the whole length of the table. But I wasn't expecting this place to be fine dining or anything, so these comments are more about setting expectations for other bar goers.

Great drink and especially great service. It really touched me to see the servers patience with and older lady who wanted napkins and wasn’t even a guest. Thank you for giving me hope that there’s is still kindness in this world.

The food was priced very well and was very good. However, the drinks were outrageously overpriced. $8 for an 8oz. plastic cup of beer???

Bar 4 from the Pour Guys, and killing like their other spots! Out door seating here is well handled and a lovely spot for a delicious burger, beer and a shot!

We live up the hill from Showdown and they have a great burger! We have gone there a number of times and had a great experience. We ordered food tonight to go and it seems that it may have gotten put off to the side before we got it so the food was a little cold once we got it home. However, we called and let them know and they put on a MASTERCLASS of customer service. They were willing to do far more than we needed to make it right. There food is already really tasty and their desire to provide a great experience has made us a life long fan. Get the burger and keep supporting this great local business.
