New restaurant in north Ames and came highly recommended. The decor of the restaurant is very sports minded as there are TV's and memorabilia everywhere. Yet the style of the restaurant seems to be more formal with small, separate dining rooms with fireplaces and expensive flooring and wall treatments. All in all confusing with what the place is trying to... More

I met a friend here and we both ordered the same thing. It was good(average) but nothing that would keep me coming back, however, I rarely drink, so I may not be the best person to review this place. It was clean with friendly wait staff.

If you are looking for a new place to drink, this might be your place. The menu is limited, pricey, and food was average. Service staff was attentive. Fireplaces were nice. Limited parking too. Not a place to go if you are hungry or have the family and kids along.

Always try to eat here at least once when I'm in Ames, and I'm never disappointed. Everything on the menu is good, prices are reasonable and the staff friendly. Can't wait to see their new location this fall!

Noticed this as we were perusing the campus area and thought we would give it a try. Expected a basic sports bar menu, but it was much bigger than that with a wide variety of items to choose. Service was very friendly, the atmosphere was nice, not so loud as one would expect at a sports bar. We were delighted... More

Nice spot to watch a couple of games. Good wait staff and the food was very good. Not a very large beer selection, but the bartender made a good recommendation.

Our family (10 of us) went to Wallaby's on a chilly Saturday evening. We were seated on the "patio" which was fully enclosed, big screen tv's to watch the games, and overhead heaters similar to what you find at ski resorts. Very comfortable even though very cold outside. We had burgers, soup and salad, etc. All was very good. Our... More
