I normally never write a review the same night as I eat/stay somewhere, but this place 'deserves' a same-day commentary. We ordered today, late afternoon/earlyevening from 189 Sports Café via a local delivery service which always delivers food from local restaurants very quickly. We've never had a problem with delivery but the actual food from 189 today was...inedible. We visited... More

This place has one within your line of sight no matter where you look. Good "bar-type" food, but if you're someone who doesn't love televised sports, this is not your kind of atmosphere...

Many locals hang out at this tiny bar/restaurant located right on the main road of route 7 in Brookfield. Though from this town originally, I have been to it a few times and have found it less than welcoming if you are not a regular. The drinks, on a standard night are high in price, but according to friends, they... More

We love 189 Sports Cafe! Very nice selections on the menu and seasonal specialty drinks that are so delicious! There is a regular dining room with little tv's at every table, or booth seating in the bar which is wall-to-wall tv's....our favorite place to dine is outside - they have two outdoor seating areas...we prefer the barside one because there...

If you want a fun atmosphere, good food and good times head to 189. The huge booths in the bar are a great place to hang out with a group of friends. The service is great and everything I have ever eaten was delicious.

189 has a great atmosphere if you're looking for somewhere to go with your friends or on a date. The drinks are good as is the service. The food is consistently good and is a step up from standard bar food. I find the food much better here than in the big restaurant in the plaza behind it. Want to... More

My boyfriend and I had a miserable experience at this restaurant. The decor is not impressive. The food came out late and cold (the beer was warm) and the service was horrid! I had told our waitress that we were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday and asked her to bring over a piece of cake with a candle in it. She... More

Had sirlion steak and it was delicious. Only issue was the food temperature was not piping hot, so I sent it back. Dinner came back still not piping hot, but was warmer. Overall it was delicious. Other meal was salmon and that was delicious. For the temperature issue, I received a complimentary dessert, any dessert off the menu. That was... More

Went at lunchtime for a sandwich and a few beers with a colleague of mine. Incredible draft beer selection on tap. I had the raging cajun chicken wrap. It was not too spicy and had a good amount of meat. My buddy had the french dip. He loved it. Waitstaff was friendly and everything came out quick. Check was very... More
