“Decent sports bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Was invited to eat here with an old friend who is still in the Marines. Place was very crowded, a good indication it is popular. We waited a bit for our food but was good. My friends son order was wrong so he had to catch up eating with us. If you like a crowded sports bar atmosphere this is a good spot.

“Awesome place, highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Great service, great beer, great ambiance. It is a sports bar but is NOT loud, the A/C is adjusted for the clients not the employees so it is perfect, you can literally spent all night here. The food was tasty, fresh and served quickly. The servers are quick but they do not rush you to get out. You can pick to seat in the bar, table, or outside if you smoke. Lighting is also perfect. We stayed at the Hampton inn right behind this place so no. DD needed :)
We had dinner here two night in a row. Semper Fidelis

“A Wild Monday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

My wife, daughter and I came in around 7:00 and got seated fairly fast...outside. No big deal, there was a party of about 14-15 Marines there taking shots having a good time and all was well. Til one guy threw up at the table. Their server was mine as well so besides we got no silverware when we were seated and a guy threw up at the table next to us and it took them 30
Min to get it cleaned up. The guy who finally cleaned it up was a food runner, not the ideal guy to clean up the vomit. My server attended to us very well and was extra nice to my family and did an excellent job(Brittney). She got us silverware and went out of her way to apologize and make sure we had everything we needed.

“Drive right by”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This place must not do any training on customer service. They were busy when we went and the server got the order wrong and kept walking away and looking around the restaurant while he was speaking to us. We asked for the manager and he came over and did not apologize but did arrange for the right dish to be brought over. So now that we got our correct orders, THE FOOD WAS AWFUL! 2 hours and 15 minutes for a dinner with an infant is not a fun night out. JUST KEEP DRIVING!!! there are plenty of other choices in town.

“Nice visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

My husband and I were there with our son, stationed at Camp Geiger. The staff was friendly and kind. The food was just right.
