This is your typical american bar and grill type food it's a local chain restaurant in Des Moines. This location needs an interior refresh for sure. Food is average at best, they do have a good selection of brews on tap though.

Went here to meet a customer and the service was good and the food was good. It was quiet on a Monday night prior to football season. Lots of TV's to watch your favorite game and even a TV in every booth. Not necessarily the best place for business to be discussed but it worked on this particular night for... More

Waffle fries are the only thing keeping this place going. It is good to go watch a game and have beer but I feel dirty ordering food here. Things are just not kept up to par for me.

The family was already here and had eaten when we showed up. The staff seemed very attentive. After everyone else left, we figured we did need to grab something so we decided on a couple of appetizers. Wanting to be "semi-healthy" we chose the Spinach dip with pita chips and the chicken nachos. The pita chips were thick deep fried... More

We had quit going here, because the last few times we were there, we had bad experiences. This time, it looks like they are under new management. The last two times we were there, we ordered drinks with Crown Royal, and although we consider this to be a bar staple, they were out. This time, they were prepared and had... More

Hub and I eat here at least 2-3 times a month. The service is always stellar and the food is always really, really good and satisfying!! My personal favorite is the Chicken Parmesan Sandwich, I order it with their awesome alfredo sauce instead of the marinara, it is fantabulous!! You can also switch out the accompanying side for any other... More

This sports bar gives you the flexibility to watch whichever sport you like. There is a TV on each table. The food was good and the service was even better. After dinner, we moved to the bar to finish watching the Royals Vs. Cardinals game. The waiter even went as far to change one of the TV's at the bar,... More

Ordered the Southwest Chicken Salad and asked for light ranch. Received salad with the regular dressing already on the salad and light ranch on the side. I questioned the waiter and he offered to make a new salad with the light ranch dressing. He apologized and was willing to make it right. My friend had the seafood pasta Alfredo and... More

food is usually pretty good, but it's typical bar-type food - the place really is due for a remodel though - haven't done anything to it since opening - service is better in the "restaurant area" than the bar area

It just wasn't good, we had nachos had awful funky flavor, chicken strips were not fresh with too much breading. Won't be going back for food.
