I was with a group and we went several nights a week. In the end, the best server was Joshua! He was prompt and had a good grasp of what was good on the menu. He was an all around good guy. The food was good and consistent. Also had good drink specials. Not too shabby for a neighborhood bar.

The food is good and well prepared. Nice menu choices and a little customization to orders was welcome. Good sized portions and a very friendly very attentive staff. Bingo night was terrible to start as the caller was so loud it was painful.. Could NOT hear the person across the table when the caller started SCREAMING into the microphone.. They... More

Excellent food and service! Lots of big screens to enjoy the world cup and plenty of space. However, keep an eye open for a few skech characters hanging around the strip mall.

I don't like writing bad reviews - but this place had it coming after our experience. We ate here as it's close to the Hampton Inn hotel and the front desk recommended it. We're fine with bar food - just needed something to eat and get some sleep for our outbound flight the next day. We arrived, no one greeted... More

Just as their name states, it is a sports bar. Nice atmosphere. Waitress was very helpful. Knew the food and drink selection, well. They also have a kids menu. We were traveling with our grandson, and felt comfortable taking him in during the day. The kids meal included ice cream. We later found they were out and made a special... More

I was there twice in two days. I went back because of their draft beer selection and fair prices. This is a sports bar with a Packers fan base. It is dark inside - a big contrast to the typical bright, sunny Florida daytime scene. The drink selection runs from rotgut to fancy, swill beer to craft beer. The menu... More

We walked to this sports bar on a Saturday night after flying in to Fort Lauderdale for a cruise connection. The food was good - my grilled tuna added to a salad was a good choice. It was a little noisy as a trivia contest was ongoing that night. The bar has large-screen viewing of sports on multiple screens.
