#2604 - The Cruise Inn, Lincoln City, OR - 8/24/2014

Cruise Inn Bar and Grill, Lincoln City, OR
For a place with a "Hippies Use the Back Door" sign, this place sure has a lot of peace signs and Grateful Dead decor.

This description on must have come from the bar itself, but it seems pretty spot on (and I like the Barmuda Triangle):

"For decades the Cruise Inn has completed the SE corner of what has long been known as the Barmuda Triangle in the heart of Lincoln City. A quintessential dive bar, the Cruise serves stiff drinks and great food almost any time of the day, so whether you show up for a huge plate of biscuits and gravy chased with a bloody mary at 10 or grab a good burger and beer for lunch you can almost always walk out with a tab around ten bucks... But beware, with an inviting atmosphere and good people you might find yourself hangin' out on into the evening tide where the food gets better and the company becomes more entertaining. The Cruise inn serves outrageously cheap dinner specials Sunday thru Friday starting at 4pm. Just ask a local, be it 1 dollar tacos on Tuesday or 5 dollar chicken fried steak dinners on Thursdays you will leave full so long as you make it in before 8pm, at 8 the cook signs out and the menu gets whittled down to an array of munchi foods, all perfect for the evening to come. So as the sun begins to set in Lincoln City and the volume on the jute box goes up you will find that regardless of your origin the atmosphere at the Cruise is unbeatable. The epitome of a chill dive bar the walls inside are decorated with Grateful Dead paraphernalia and the jute box is filled with an array of classic rock 'n' roll. Though it's certainly not fancy, who can complain when 5 bucks gets you 20 songs and you never have to listen to todays top 20. Should you need it, there are 4 new flat screens, 2 pool tables, a dart board, family guy pinball, and a bran new golden tee in the back to help you pass the time. But with the truly unique variety of patrons filtering through and the exceptionally friendly bartenders you might just find that the best seat in the house is right at the bar."
