I go here for sports and a beer. But I am surprised how good the food can be sometimes. I got the penne vodka and it was really good! Normally I wouldn't get a Italian dish at a sports bar but I craved pasta. ( never get at a diner ) I actually wanted to go back for the penne.... read more

We have been eating at this restaurant for the past 28 years and through three changes of theme and decor and menu. We began eating here when it was Fiddlers and boasted an open grill kitchen facing onto the dining room and a small outdoor patio. It still has the neighborhood feel of Fiddlers, but now has two outdoor patios,... More

One time I was there and they were not busy, so we had a server checking on us every 3 minutes. That was great no one ever had an empty glass. The food was good and they had a couple of drink specials that were good. Another time we were seated on the covered patio and no one came to... More

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
