Very Good Experience

Six couples celebrated a birthday at this restaurant and the experience was very good. They had a large table set aside for us in a quiet area that was perfect for our situation. The waitress was excellent by providing separate checks for each couple and giving us all much attention. The food was... read more

Simple order ended up being a 90-minute wait. Came in with only 4 tables occupied, ordered 3 simple appetizers and drinks...wrong drinks arrived, waiter complained about work environment, and took 90 minutes for food to arrive...and it was WRONG! Such a disappointing visit. No comp would make it worth coming back.

If you want pizza, calzones, spaghetti or burgers you can have a lot of choices and don't forget the large selection of beer. Be sure and start the world beer tour I thoroughly enjoyed my journey.

We went here for Penn State Football viewing with the local club. They have a good appetizer menu: 2 for $8 or 3 for $11. They have an overwhelming drink menu.

Same issue "sauce" unlike the normal cretins who think... More

This is a large, loud, sports bar. The service was good. The food was good too. We had a salad and pizza and it was fine. Lots of TVs and mostly college kids. It's

We visited to play trivia and get dinner. Trivia was great. Food was pretty good. Service was completely lacking. We got service almost immediately when we sat down asking for our drink order (but we hadn't even had a chance to open the drink menu). After asking for a few minutes, we had to ask the neighboring table for a... More

I thought the food was ok. Nothing to brag about. The service was really good though. We sat outside with a dog on a hot day and they even brought water for the dog.

A Fort Collins Original. Two locations, try them both, very good beer & pizza you can't beat. My son broke me in here as he earned his way through college working here. Thanks Son!
