I really don't know how this place stay is business serving frozen appetizers to it's patrons. This place is in a unique location and has so much unrealized potential. If the Jillian's in Boston is considered the steak of the franchise, the location in Manchester is definitely the bologna.
The atmosphere is pretty well laid out with several pool tables and place to catch a cold one. The have a deck outside which features bands and DJs from time to time. That's probably the best thing going for the place.
It's annoying when they have a crappy band charging $10 at the door when all you want to do is play pool. Most of the bands that play here are much better than what you'd get at a middle school talent show. Take caution on UFC fight nights, because every wannabe MMA knucklehead wearing a TapOut shirt will be there yelling at the TV. It's funny because the guys who do real MMA who watch fights there aren't obnoxious. They themselves make fun of those bozos.
Waitresses are a mixed bag. Some are really good and some plain suck.
Overall, Jillians is a place where you go to kill time, drink and play pool or shuffleboard when your in the mood
