Went to eat with a group of 10. Ordered burgers, wings, pastas, chicken fingers, salads and everything was good. Nothing was grey and it was a pretty pricey meal. We would eat here again there was some neat memorabilia around.

Great service and lovely menu! My son loved the burgers too. Service was friendly and the deco was interesting and we had great fun guessing all the sport stars names.

We ate here twice in 3 days. We were staying at the Embassy Suites next to this restaurant. We ate dinner on a Thursday and again on Saturday. Both experiences were great. Thursday, we took advantage of their 'happy hour' specials. The bar menu was 20% off. Everyone's food came hot and fresh. The fries were really good. Probably beer... More

We ate here while visiting the Embassy Suites - which is literally a few steps away. This was a great, unexpected restaurant. We showed up around 8:00 pm on a Saturday night and had no problems getting a table for five. There was something for everyone in our group at all price points. I had the fish tacos - they... More

My wife and I, with five grandchildren, stayed at the nearby Embassy Suites and eat here three nights. A good children's menu, and the older kids all found something they liked from wings to burgers. Prices were reasonable and food quality and service were excellent. Teenaged grand-daughter loved the CAB salad. My wife loved the crab cake sandwich (not listed... More
