Went there on 10/31/21 at around 9pm. My partner ordered a long island iced tea and took 2 sips of it and didn't like it because one of the ingredients she put in the drink tasted off. I tasted his drink myself and I too agreed it had a strong moldy taste to it. We suspected the taste might be coming from the fountain soda she put in the drink. My partner notified the bartender of this and she said that she didn't do anything different to his drink and said, "well that drink isn't good ever" insinuating that just the drink he ordered in general isn't a good choice. My partner then asked her if he could switch his drink to an AMF and she said she couldn't because she already poured out the liquor to the first drink he ordered. We thought it was ridiculous that she wasn't willing to replace it to a different drink even if it was the same price. My partner ended up paying for a drink he didn't like or consume and the bartender ended up having to throw out the drink anyway and wasting liquor because he said he won't be drinking it. After this, a customer came in with a backpack on which the bartender said was against the rules. The customer eventually snuck past her with his backpack still on and he sat down to play the slot machines. She confronted the man in a very unprofessional manner. I understand that the man was being difficult but that was not the way anyone should be behaving in a work environment. She was giving the customer alot of unnecessary attitude and was behaving childishly. When the customer asked for his lottery ticket money the bartender practically threw his money at him and slammed it across the counter while making snarky remarks even after the customer left her a tip. I was really uncomfortable with the whole situation and the bartender didn't have any good customer service skills. She didn't try to de -escalate the situation at all.

This place has gone down hill in past few years. The service is slow the female bartender Qi only serve the male customers first the others have to wait at least an hour to be served. They serve fried foods only!!!!! The place has only a few customers compared to three years ago when the place was jamming always

stumbled upon this dive bar after golfing in Salem. It was a fun spot to grab a brew. It's located right next to the Plaid Pantry a little bit Northeast Salem. Originally, I was looking to stop at an American Legion, but it was no longer, so diverted and went around the corner to Dark Horse. Full bar, lottery, TVs, small outdoor area. Friendly people. I drank an IPA, it was fresh and prices were average market price.
