“Good sports bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Went their on a busy Saturday night and was surprised to be seated immediately. Four of us had a variety of burgers. Nothing special and my Kobe burger was dry and disappointing. Rolls were hard and Saratoga chips old. Our waitress Coleen was the best part of the meal although forgot out fries..

“Used to be great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Was disappointed at this dining experience as this has always been a favorite casual place to dine. The food quality has gone downhill greatly, so it's a way less frequent stop for us.

“Great sports bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Me and my buddies try to go here every Friday for lunch. The Staff is very friendly, the food doesn't take long and the prices are great.

“Good place to drink”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Stopped in for lunch and a couple beers on a Saturday afternoon, sat at the bar, it was super busy and didn't appear to be any tables available. We were served fairly quickly, decent beer selection, including locals. Behind the bar is a bit of a disaster, looks like they are short on space. I had calimari and it had no taste to it, other then the hot peppers it was tossed with.No seasoning used whatsoever. I'd go here again for drinks, but probably would not eat. Huge menu, but nothing that really jumped out at me.

“Not as good as it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Used to come here often for business lunches but stopped several months ago due to a bad experience while i had some clients in town. I figured i'd give it another try and see if they improved on the food. I'm only going to judge the 1 item that used to be WAY better than it is now. Their Philly Cheese Steak with Onions.

This sandwich used to be AMAZING! Lots of juicy meat and onions topped with yummy melted provolone on an awesome freshly baked roll. I used to recommend this to everyone i went here with and no one was ever disappointed. Yesterday i figured i'd give it a try again (after having 2 bad experiences) and the sandwich came out looking great, then i tasted it. The meat was super dry, overcooked and barely any onions on it. What used to be an awesome freshly baked roll was now a dry, crumbly, regular old grocery store style roll. The roll is what used to "make" this sandwich. It did still come nicely topped with provolone. So very very disappointing to say the least. I really wish they'd go back to their old rolls. The "fresh cut" fries that came with it were soggy and cold, my colleague got the beer battered fries and they looked way better, he said they were hot and crunchy. Oh well, long story short, it's "OK", nothing great. I'd stick with their beer.
