Bar gets one-star Yelp review, tears it to shreds in deeply satisfying response.

After a woman left a one-star review for a bar on Yelp, the bar replied and made her review look quite thoughtless. The establishment that received the review is called The Iron Horse, and it's a dive bar in New York City. A reviewer named Megan, who sounds like one of those customers that bartenders love to hate, was upset by the loud music and questionable food (two features of every dive bar in the United States). Here's her review:

Wouldn't recommend this to eat or for a quite drink. I met some friends here at 3pm in the afternoon and the music was so loud we couldn't hear each other. The service was terrible just to get a drink at the bar. The food was also terrible.

What Megan did not know is that these are characteristics that make The Iron Horse proud. The bar's owner shot back with a Yelp post of his own, pointing out that she clearly was looking for a different kind of watering hole:

The hunter has become the hunted. Megan received one star from The Iron Horse, and she earned it because she took the time to write a Yelp review complaining about noise when the bar's description clearly says "loud." She may as well have complained that they didn't serve coffee, as the owner pointed out that she typically frequents quiet coffee shops.

The Iron Horse, a no-nonsense joint.

Proprietors of dive bars never take flack from customers, not even on the Internet.
