On the recommendation of a friend, we decided to have our fantasy football draft at Casper's Cherokee in the "Party Barn" (bar). We didn't make a reservation - figuring there would be plenty of space somewhere in the large bar area. When we arrived, we set up in the loft area. Much to our dismay, someone came up there and said he'd reserved it for a party starting in about an hour.
No sooner had we gotten back down to the main bar when the manager asked if we'd like a private room. He found us a perfect room, brought in an extra table, and arranged to have a server take care of us. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.
When we eventually ordered food, it was really good. A few people got the $5.99 burger, which was thick and grilled to order. The standard side item was Casper's different but tasty fries, but you could get a different side - including fresh fruit - for no extra charge. A couple people ordered the tenderloin. It was $30, but what a great meal. It came with fresh sauteed veggies, creamy mashed potatoes, and rich gravy. The meat was cooked perfectly and seemed a lot bigger than the 8 ounces as stated in the menu. A couple of friends got the guacamole and mango salsa with chips. They said it was very good. Finally, I got the buffalo wings. They were not "jumbo" as indicated but were super flavorful. They were rubbed with some kind of seasoning and then spun in sauce, for a more complex flavor than you usually get from wings.
The Party Barn itself is a really nice option for watching sports or playing Buzztime trivia. There's plenty of seating, many big TVs, and a good-sized patio.
We'll definitely be back, especially for our next party (with a reservation, of course).
