Great little pub with easy bike access on the High Trestle Trail. Great drinks & enjoy them on the patio. Snacks available if you need one.

We have been here a couple of times and not impressed. The bartenders are vey unaware of customers, the drinks are expensive, and I do not need a solo cup with only one shot in it.

The Flat Tire Lounge is on the High Trestle trail and just off of hwy 17. It's a great location to hang out, have a drink and a bite to eat when on the bike trail or even just driving through Madrid. Kid friendly too!

The Flat Tire lounge actually does sell new tubes and tires for your bike, besides good craft beers from one of the local breweries and food. The Lounge caters to the local crowds and those riding along the High Trestle Trail for the day or...More
