Joe Jost's has the distinction of being Long Beach's oldest standing pub and one of the oldest standing bars west of the Mississippi River (and also, strangely, doubling as a bait-and-tackle shop). It's been up and running for over 80 years, once serving as a drinking hang out for Navy men in the 1940s and now serving all kinds of locals, from cool fixie-riding college students to older salts.
Despite it's age the place is in great shape, and has old barbershop-style chairs in the back, along with traditional pub games.
Sandwiches are very affordable costing about $3-5, but a large mug of beer can be a bit hefty, around $6.
Joe Jost's is located at 2803 Anaheim St.
