“Decent burgers, good beer, horrible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

It's a happenin' place on a Friday night, but the service sucks. It's right around the corner from where we live, so it's good for Friday night messy burgers and beer, but you can wait a long time for a server to notice that you're sitting there, waiting...

“Super Sports Bar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Went with a group after work. Basically had bar food but there were some interesting, and tasty, options. Fried Mac and Cheese was a big hit at the table. Several ordered loaded hot dogs - very good, and nice change from the typical bar food options. Happy hour offered some very good half price options for food. Drink prices OK - not necessarily a great value but not bad. It was nice to be able to play pool and shuffleboard instead of just drinking and chatting. Very casual environment, very relaxing. We'll visit again on our next trip to Roslyn.

“Great Sports Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Plenty of TVs to service everyone's sports desire. Great for groups with pool, ping pong, some arcade style fun. Typical bar food, but don't miss the fried pickles!

“Friendly staff but drinks are expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Bar staff was friendly and accommodating and there is lots to do; skeeball, pool, games. $16 for a double Stoli selzer is pretty ridiculous especially for just a sports bar.
