The Waterfront location is ideally located across the street from the AMC cineplex, so this is the perfect joint to bring your post-movie arguments. Lively enough to absorb an impassioned defense without irking other patrons, but not so noisy that a subtle point can't be appreciated. Microbrews on tap, a menu of bar favorites and, in the warm weather, patio seating. The vibe is a little louder at Bar Louie's Station Square outpost.
