Nice sports bar interior. Food was okay. It didn't wow us but we didn't dislike it or have any issues with it either. Our waitress was attentive and service was good. We could have done without the temper tantrum of the toddler who spilled milk on the floor seated down behind us. The booths were... read more

The service was alright and some of the food was alright. My Girlfriend got Chicken tenders and they were the worst I've ever had. They were dried out and had no flavor. And on top of that they added 7 dollars to the tip that we wrote down on the receipt. Luckily the person was helpful on the phone when... More

My husband and I swung in here after picking up our completed tax returns next door. I ordered a Milk Shake Stout (Michigan brewed) and my husband got a Miller Lite draft. I choose the Pepper Jack Shotz and Loaded Potato Skins. Delicious. Husband got the French Dip sandwich which he loved. Good service, fun sports bar with big menu... More

In all honesty, I've never been that much of a drinker, nor a sports nut, but this place has a great atmosphere for just meeting up with friends. There are often times a selection of sporting events on the numerous television screens. Which also follow the Michigan sports teams and depending on the crowd, will have the game audio on... More

The atmosphere is decent, the food is decent, but this place is dirty!! The bathrooms are literally filthy. My son refused to use the men's room. If the bathrooms are that gross and the dining area is obviously not kept clean...what does your kitchen look like? For that reason alone, I'm out. There are several other establishments in Fenton that... More

We had a large group. Considering the fact that we had the large group, the waitress did a great job, although I would think that since we called ahead & made them aware of the large group, they would have made arrangements for extra help. Anyway, food was great. Over all had a great time, but...the bathrooms at this establishment... More

Recently returned for a second visit . The food isn't bad , we got burgers , sandwichs ,soup and salad . If you want to hangout and eat around a lot of cool hockey memorabilia this is your place.

The chili actually had ingredients in it and not just spice, beans and sauce. The pizza was very good , too. The downfall was that my husband wanted a Guinness and they don't carry it, but have alot of other beers.

This is a standard sports bar except....you will see families there. Good food. Quiet and relaxing early. Slow paced, especially the staff. This is a good place to go if you are not in a hurry for your food. We have been there lots.

There's nothing either that good or that bad about the Penalty Box. The menu is typical of many sports themed bar/restaurants. The restaurant is filled with televisions and the walls with hockey memorabilia. It's often noisy and is intended to be. There is occasional live music. The menu includes a variety of sandwiches, a few more substantial dinners items, pizzas... More
