My friends and I went to play pool the other night. We had ordered a drink at the bar first. Then put $5 in the juke box and went to the pool tables located in a different section. When we got there the music was different from the music we had just picked. The bartender couldn't fix the problem. She... More

This is a fun sports bar with many wide-screen tv's, nice bar area and billard tables. I ordered the Cuban Sandwich and it was good, not excellent; the pulled-pork was lacking a little in flavor. My companion ordered the fish fry (absolutely fresh fresh covered with a delicious, crispy breading) and asked to substitute a caesar salad for the french... More

The boneless wings were great but the rest of the meal was ok at best. Both my sandwich and the fries were very salty. The waitress was very attentive and there are many flat screen TVs so it's not a bad place to watch a game.

Both happy hour and lunch service are excellent. They have a large menu with plenty of options, professional, friendly staff, accomodate larger parties with ease in their large bar area, etc.

The area does not have a lot of great bar options where you can go as a couple (Hooters and the Tilted Kilt aren't a big hit with the women) but Rivals fills the gap. Many flat screens to watch sports, great service and a good value. The night we were there they had live music (no cover). We just... More

I was looking to watch a Steelers game and found that Rivals on the Berlin Turnpike carries all the game. My husband and I went down there, we had a blast!!! Shea on the bar was so much fun the crowd was really fun. They have power hours which could not be beat. Worth the stop
