The Main Event has a TV at every possible angle all showing a variety of different sports. The food is quite good for this type of venue with a varied menue to fit most tastes.The salads, burgers and other menue items are above average. Our server, Karen, was excellent and catered to our every need. Would definitely go back.

We came to discuss business, but were amazed by the number of big screen TV's throughout the restaurant. I had the steak that with blue cheese that was cooked perfect. Would highly recommend it.
