It's dark, and the exterior is a little sketchy. But the drinks are stiff. The staff is warm, and Mike Calzone rips it up on guitar, sax, whatever every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. And while you're listening to Calzone, you're doing this: gorging on snow crabs. That's on Tuesday and Thursday night ($26.95). On Mondays it's all-you-can-eat peel-n-eat shrimp ($11.95), on Wednesdays and Fridays it's barbecued ribs ($10.95), Fridays and Saturdays you go for catfish, and on Sundays and Mondays it's fried chicken ($9.95). The dining room of this decades-old bar is festooned with cheery tropical murals, and the vinyl-seated chairs are reminiscent of a motel banquet room. But add in very competent 40-cent wings and $1.50 drafts and the R in R Bar stands for "Repeat business."
Kitchen open 8 a.m.-11p.m. daily.
