We ate here one night as we were staying at the Crowne Plaza. Our meals were ok as bar meals go, but most options seem to be deep fried, so I just stuck to the salad. My husband had the chilli soup, but he said it just ok. We like the option of sitting outside and there was a kareoke... More

Patio has TV's (~8), music, curtains (for inclement weather), fans, a bar, and plenty of tables. Food was tasty, portions were average size. The only negative was our waitress was not very... More

I'm happy to hear our variety could please everyone in your party! Sounds like you all had a great time on the patio. It's too bad that poor service took away from an otherwise great experience. Thanks for letting me know, though. I'll be sure to have a chat with our team this week to make sure we're being friendly... More

First time we've been here this winter. The Friday fish and chips special is very good. Flaky white fish fillets, breaded and fried golden brown. You can get it grilled or blackened too. $2.00 off on Friday makes it a true special. Good iced tea. Everything we've ordered here has been good over 3 winters. Service has always been slow,...

The outdoor patio is great, and its your prototypical sports bar. The food was out of this world, but took a little longer than we're used to. Then again, we're from Chicago, where everything moves a bit faster.

We actually stopped in for lunch on our way to checking into the Homewood suites next door. Surprised by the number of TVs. Waitstaff was attentive and even gave up tips on getting around the area quicker. We both had the Philly Cheesesteak and fries which were very good. Beer and drink specials so ask if you are interested.
