“Great Set Up for Watching Sports”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Was looking for a sports bar to watch college football a few years back, Chumps was a hands down winner. The layout of TVs is great, and the management has been very accomodating in showing requested games. Been my "go to" place for football on Saturdays for three years.

Food is standard sports bar fare, although Chumps does offer pizza as well. Over I'd rate the food as above average, especially the deli-style sandwiches.

Weak point of the bar is service. In my case, I think it has more to do with when I'm there (Sat morning) more than the capability of the servers. Later in the day/evening more servers are in place and service is noticable better. Many of the servers are also quite young, probably their first jobs.

“Good food & good price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

My husband and I love to eat here. There are always people there eating, but we've never had to be put on a wait list for a table. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. The drink prices are good as well. When the weather is nice, there is a nice patio where you can eat. The only thing I HATE about the patio seating is that they do allow smoking out there. It really ruins a meal to have to breathe that in if you're not a smoker.

“Yummy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

This place has very good pub style food as well as dinners and monthly specials. They have very very good service and nothing empty sets on your table for long... The pretzel appetizer with beer cheese is amazing and I have yet to have bad food or a bad experience

“Very good food, but allows smoking on the patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We had a wedding rehearsal dinner here on a Friday night. Our party of 34 started out on the Outdoor Patio and then finished up inside in a party/meeting room. We tried all their different pizzas with Veggie being the winner since we finished off five of them in addition to the other ten.

Service was great with glasses refilled and refilled and refilled before we had to ask. Only problem was that we were from out of state and not use to smoking being allowed (outside on Patio only). Several in our party had to move to the far end of the Patio to get better air.

“Basic, chain-type restaurant; GREAT service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

A group of us needed a nearby place to grab a quick dinner and TJ's is where we ended up. Very much like other chain restaurants food-wise. However, the servers were very friendly and responsive. Good for a group (they put tables together for us) and easy parking.
