The payoff from the nautical theme hinted at by this blue-collar hangout’s name is decidedly small. Aside from a light fixture made from a ship’s wheel and anchor-shaped coat hooks, this is your standard shot-and-a-beer dive. The crowd here is composed primarily of townies, with a bit of overflow from the U. of C. student-heavy crowd at nearby Jimmy’s.
