With the exception of a whimsical rooster-themed stained glass window, the exterior of this corner bar is unassuming.

Come see why The Happy Rooster has been a favorite amongst locals and visitors alike since 1968.

Perfect place to dip in for lunch!! No need to grab an alcoholic beverage, unless you please. They always have fantastic soups, a diverse variety too! Their white chili should be winter staple, their lobster bisque is always good Thank you for making this chickie-d happy 🐥

Nice local bar with karaoke. Wish the sound system was a little louder, but all in all, ok. Company was good, which made up for it. Perfect for late night stop for apps and cocktails. Nothing fancy, but very quaint. Got very crowded later in the evening, so I guess the word is out about this hidden gem.

Cozy and quirky little corner bar in central city. We peeked in this place on a chilly afternoon and were quite pleased! Friendly service and a friendly crowd! We had lobster quesadillas, wild mushroom soup and chicken salad sandwich. My friends and I enjoyed relaxing here.

A rarity in center city - an upscale corner-type bar (its actually on a corner!) with a friendly staff and top-notch food. Make sure you have a Moscow Mule - they make the best in the city at the back bar.
