A Tapper of Two Rivers for $1 (American) on a Thursday night? That's all that almost all that needs to be said about the Pioneer Tavern. Now with 3 new flat screen televisions, and fruity fishbowls, you cant go wrong with a little 7:00pm to 11:00pm stint at the Pioneer.

I've been drinking down on water street for 10+ years. Its been my expierence that the pioneer has some of the ugliest bartenders on water. The place, unfortunatly, has nothing going for it. 10 years ago it wasn't like this, but between over-priced watered-down drinks and stank-ass bartenders, this place sucks. So, if you wanna piss away money and get some beergoggles, look no further than this dive.
