Nice Atmosphere, Good Beer Selections, Good Good

I like coming here, and save a few bucks by arriving before 6 O'clock to get a beer and appetizers at Happy Hour. They have an excellent selection of craft beers that you can get in a short or tall glass or even a pitcher (although it is a small pitcher). The menu is fairly extensive and if... read more

Sign at the entrance indicates: Upscale Sports Bar; given the atmosphere, this is accurate. Was greated by a less than friendly hostess. The wait staff was very inexperienced when it came to beverages: type of beer, wine. Ordered a burrito since the menu was prevalent in mexican items. The portion was huge but average tasting, server did not offer a... More

Walked in on a Thursday night expecting an empty place; pretty full when I arrived. Took for ever to get my table. When I asked the server for their specialties he seemed quite befuddled and finally mentioned they did Mexican the best. I ordered a Mexican appetizer w/Chorizo which happens to be one of my favorite types of sausage. What... More

Live music, tons of TVs with games on, arcade games as well. The food though was only average. I enjoyed the broccoli slaw though.

During an upcoming visit to a customer in the area, needed dinner and checked out Trip Advisor. Good reviews were spot on. Nice Atmosphere, Friendly Staff, and significant menu choices. Salad was ample with a tasty homemade Italian dressing. Went with Rigatoni, meat sauce mushrooms and sliced steak smothered with Mozzarella. Wonderful, but couldn't finish as there was so much....

This place is a well established sports bar. Lots of TV screens, and a live band on the night we were there (Friday). The menu has a number of Mexican themed items as well as the standbys; wings, burgers, sandwiches and then some entrees as well. The French onion soup was spot on, hot and arrived quickly. The service was... More

We stopped here for my friend's bachelor party to get food and drinks. First, it is quite a large restaurant. Which is nice, because I hate being clustered together and having to shout over other people. Our waitress was nice, and they have an expansive beer menu that should satisfy any taste. We ordered some appetizers, and I was pleasantly... More

I had had a long drive and checked into the hotel. I asked the hotel clerk where a good place to eat and she recommended this place. It was across the parking lot. The staff of the restaurant was friendly when I walked in. I sat at the bar and had dinner. They have 65 different beers on tap and... More

Great sports bar tucked away in a hotel district. Yummy antpasto and cuban sandwich with a beer. Sat at outdoor patio and was super nice.
