Changing from the Lube to Pavilion was a good move! Better menus and the music and people are great,the people who commented on the restaurant that it was dirty needs to go to a 5 star restaurant this is a great place to hear live music outside under the stars with hundreds of bikes and great people, best bike night...

It was cold, no heat in the restaurant. Not a pleasant experience. The food was ok and the server was pleasant but I would not stop there again.

We always have great service and love the wings. You can't beat the price for all you can eat wings. They have such wonderful flavors. We are sad they are changing to a BBQ place. We have heard it is going to be fantastic though

To noisy, too crowded. Bar food. Pet friendly on the patio though which is a nice surprise, just wish the food was better and the volumn on the music wasn't so loud.

First time at QSL for a group birthday celebration. Ehhhhh. Just another Hooter's or BWW kind of place. Boneless wings right out of the freezer. The Cajun heat wasn't bad though. Really expensive beer. $3.20 for a bottle of Yuengling and $3.66 for a 16 +/- oz draft of the same. What a profit. A place for the 20s-30s tatted,... More

We were not really sure what we were about to experience, but it turned out all good. Tons of choices on the menu with an eclectic mix of premium steak burgers to oriental bowls, pasta dishes and more. I got one of the steak burgers and it was HUGE! Easily two people could have split that plate. Service was good... More

Quick lunch stop in the rain was made better with the spicy hot boom boom sauce on my Texas toast melt. The Mac n cheese was OK but the frys were pretty wimpy.

Wings are always good. But we were disappointed at how dirty the restaurant was. Trash on floor, worn carpet stained black, food splatters on the signs hanging on walls. Service was good but if they don't clean up we won't be back. What did the areas we couldn't see look like?

To begin with they seated us upstairs on a hot evening and their A/C wasn't working so we all sitting their sweating. The service was so rediculously slow, It took the salads more than 15 minutes to come up. We went as a group of 6 on a Tuesday night, it wasn't even busy. We are ordered all you can... More
