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

Sports bar with good eats!

Champps is your average American sports bar, filled with large, flat-screen TVs and cold tap beers. They have a great selection of food and the portion sizes are big, which means we always go home with leftovers.

Great food and a large menu and good prices. Nice restaurant and sports bar connected to the hotel as you enter town from the West.

Unreal, fantastic service with Connie, awesome food, but hard as wood napkins was ridiculous. Corporate needs to fix this since locals don't seem to be able to fix.

I have to say everything was wonderful. I had gyro and it was great! Wife had the Greek salad it was equally great. Daughter had the blackened chicken pasta and it was fabulous. I highly recommend this place. Enjoy!

The Best food around this area! It's amazing every time we visit the waitress always knows our favorites. Service is outstanding and the cooks are superb. We like visiting between 1-4 pm to beat the crowds, however, you might like the surround TV set-up with lots of people watching a game or two. Perfect place to watch your favorite teams... More

Great free hotel-member breakfast with real scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh-made pancakes, toast, cereal and more. Convenient for lunch or dinner but a bit pricey.

On our vacation, we really enjoyed the breakfast buffets, and the happy hour drinks & appetizers. We always stay at the Best Western Plus so we can walk to Champps.

Often a golf tournament is only on pay per channels, so we come to Champps for meal and drink. Service is always great, menu changes acceptable, preparation good and beer selection fantastic. Being a member from regularly eating here brings discounts and coupons. Tell them General Bob sent you.

We stayed at a hotel that Champps was attached to. We actually ended up eating there two nights in a row. The restaurant was clean, the service was fast, friendly, and accommodating. I had the lobster roll special which was delicious on Friday night. Saturday I had to make a reservation for 35 of us. They did everything they could... More
