We ate lunch here before the matinee. We had sandwiches, fries, and onion rings - all good, all really big portions. Our server was very friendly and brought me a sundae for my birthday.

Recommend the food but be careful with the servers. Ordering a burger and asked if there is something I could get instead of fries, she listed 4 options without mentioning the significant upcharge. The side I received cost as much as my main meal!! I mentioned this to the waitress and got a shrug and "it is all listed in... More

Fun ambience and close to the hotel. Kind of disappointed that the food was served in the kind of trays you'd get in a ball park. Ave food for ave prices.

We live in the area so when in the mood for awesome wings and service, this is our go-to. It is in a great location, near the Bradley Center, and close to Water St and Old World 3rd St nightlife. Tonight I met my significant other and his friend. I saddled up at the bar next to them and was... More

Service was great, friendly and surprisingly fast considering how busy it was. The bar is decked out in all Wisconsin sports. We went here based on online reviews to watch a green bay packers game. It didn't disappoint. It was loud, and cheery. Great place to come watch a game. Very good food aswell

This place was a sports bar before the name sports bar was around. The burger and fries were out quickly and were as good as I expected. Conveniently located across from the convention center and just a block from the Bradley Center..

I went to the restaurant to watch a hockey game on a Sunday night with my friends. We had poor service, the air conditioning was on full blast and everyone in the restaurant was in their jackets because it was so cold. Half way through the game a huge spider started crawling down the middle of one projection screen. After... More

Went before a bucks game - 4 adults and kids. Had to find our own table - not hostess in this overcrowded place. Luckily we found 2 tables near each other but 4 kids squished in a 2 person booth. After we ordered, Table near us said they had already been waiting an hour. When we finally got our food,... More
