Belmont Street Dance Friday Night

First time here with a friend from UK who comes here often. Very busy but wait staff did a good job getting drinks and food. They had Guinness on tap!

My girlfriend and I, started our evening, watching the Women's national soccer team World Cup Championship at Sammy'a Pub. We were asked to "tone it down, this is a family place." My girlfriend, assumed that it was because we were celebrating 4 goals in 16 minutes, Catlin Lloyd's midfield hat trick, and the USA in general to loudly, I thought... More

Atmosphere is a bit dirty. Wait staff was friendly but very slow. Waited 40 min for food, we had 6 people in our group. Drinks we had to go to the bar since the waitress seemed to forget about us after she brought water. Once the food arrived it was good, hot. Nothing over the top. The special announced (Reubin...

You would be hard pressed to find a better place to meet people and enjoy a drink. They are the home base for "Friends For Lawson" a very fine charity for children. Tim & Cindy, the owners are two of the finest people in town. Food is good Pub Grub, bartenders and wait staff are excellent!

We liked the description of this eatery. However, we tried unsuccessfully to locate it. We were told it was on Main street. After driving up and down Main street we decided to eat elsewhere.

This down-town bar is a great place to meet up with friends. It doesn't have a whole lot of tables, and the tables are right by the bar, but there is plenty of space throughout, as well as a cute little outdoor terrace area for smokers or people who prefer to eat outdoors. If you do choose to eat out... More

This place is gross. It attracts some gross people too. The nachos are the only decent thing on the menu. Weekend nights get a little rowdy.

Friends Sports Bar & Grill is everything it advertises to be and a lot more! There are about 15 big screen TV's scattered about the place and during peak sporting events you can find pretty much any game you want. The bonus is that besides the consistently great food the kitchen turns out there is live music on the weekends... More

Enjoyed the local atmosphere and in all fairness I only had lunch there and mine may have been the exception. My chicken club sandwich tasted like pre-cooked rubbery chicken with no flavor. The service was ok too, but again in all fairness there were quite a few of us. I would go again for the beer & maybe try something... More
