Check out some Yelp reviews:

“Saxon Pub has the best shows.  One of my friend’s bands did the Friday night happy hour show for 5 years.  That’s when I spent most of my time at Saxon.  But of course I stayed for the later acts.  They draw great talent like Patrice Pike, Guy Forsyth, Carolyn Wonderland, Malford Milligan, Bob Schneider, and many more. No cover for happy hour shows & later shows are a small cover.  It doesn’t matter if you get there early or late, the cover is the same if you stay for the later shows.  Reserved spots are also available.  Happy hour bands get paid on tips only, so be generous!  Someone is always passing that tip jar around – don’t be a cheapskate! Typical dive bar booze selection.  Drinks are reasonably priced.  Servers are attentive.  Sets last quite a while – great entertainment!” – Terri J.

“Great live music. Super chill dive bar. I’ve been living on south Lamar for 8 years i don’t know why I’ve never checked this place out. I’ll be back for sure.” -Ariana G.

“Great service, fantastic sound, overall awesome old bar. Tons of old pictures and decor and a rad little front patio. We saw Bob Schneider’s band and they rocked. Will definitely be back, maybe pay for special seats next time instead of $10 general admin.” -Miranda P.
