The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team.Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and we're the best place to watch the game. No matter what part of the country you're in, you are sure to find a neighborhood Champps nearby

Good food, great service

Regulars can still be surprised with new menu changes. Service by Adah is always top notch and spot on. Something for everyone, it's great to see Champps stay ahead of changing times to health conscious meals.

Good place to go to watch a game. Kinda loud for a conversational type of need. Wait staff have all been great

The manager Kim is very understanding. Trucks can park in the parking lot just make sure u park on the back to side of the building. I couldn't park there but she let me park in the middle. The food was outstanding beer was the perfect temperature. Could see the tv's anywhere u sit. I will eat here again.

Breakfast sucked. Cinnamon rolls were dry, apple juice was funky, no butter for French toast. I guess for a free breakfast you shouldn't expect much

We stayed in the adjacent Best Western hotel two nights. The breakfasts offered had good variety but were not as hot as expected. We also ate our evening meal there which was average in quality. This restaurant is a sports bar and not necessarily appealing to senior citizens.

Great food, great beer selection, and a nice patio when the weather is right!! Typically get the same thing each time, really only due to a dairy allergy, but the menu is full of great options, and our servers have always been attentive and understanding. Overall a nice atmosphere as well. Thanks Champps!!

I like the convenience of having a restaurant/bar attached to the hotel - especially for large family gatherings. For drinks, there is a good selection of domestic and craft beers on tap and in bottle. I had the "ultimate margarita" and it was quite tasty and not a bad price as they provide you with the shaker in addition to... More

I am not always impressed with restaurants attached to hotels. However, this was a very pleasant surprise. A breakfast buffet was included in the price of our room which was very good. Also, since it was so convenient we ate more than one time here. Honestly, I would have driven for the food and their prices.
