“More on the Sports Bar Theme”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is a typical Sports Bar that is ever so popular these days. We came here at the recommendation of someone we had a business transaction with. It is located below the main floor in the Gaylord. We were seated promptly and orders were taken for our drinks, they were delivered quickly. My husband ordered the burger, it came with a tiny order of shoestring ff and spicy pickles. I asked the server about the grilled chicken breast sandwich with a Jerk sauce, he said it was a little spicy but very good, this also comes with ff and more spicy pickles I had asked him to have the bun toasted when he took the order, the sandwich arrived without the bun. But, they did make good on that and delivered a toasted bun a little later. The sauce was so hot and spicy I had to scrape it off, even then it had too much heat, you could not enjoy the chicken because you could not taste it. I told the waiter about this and he said he would ask the chef to tone it down. The service was ok except when it came time to get the bill, the server was hard to track down, even though the restaurant was not busy. It took even longer to pay the bill. The meal was ok, nothing special. The restaurant was very clean and lighting was good. The prices seemed high...the entire bill for this was $34.00. I probably would not go back there for several reasons: the sports bar theme has been done to death, the portions are small and the prices are high.

“Yer Basic Sports Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Typical Sports Bar. Lots of Giant Screen TVs and sports memorabilia surround you. Comfortable seating especially good for groups. Good service and average pub food and drinks. Good selection of beers. Went for for meal after checking in late (only venue open at the Gaylord). If we had known that the nearby town was there and had many interesting restaurant and bar choices we would have walked over there... Thant';s our recommendation...Walk out the front door of the gaylord across the street a short distance and there are many places to pick from!!

“Stick with the burger”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I ate here twice during my hotel stay. The first visit, the service was very slow. The iced tea tasted like sludge and the cobb salad was bad. The lettuce as not good, the egg undercooked and bacon greasy; the turkey was one of those not-sure-what-it-is processed cubes and it was all buried under a mound of blue cheese. My next trip, the service was better and the burger was acceptable. Why go back? The meal choices are limited at the Gaylord.

“Dinner in a theme park”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Noisy, too-brightly lit, poor service and execution, lack of creativity in menu choices. Okay for a lunch, perhaps, but definitely not for dinner.

“Sports Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

It's ok, huge area, some service staff didn't listen to pack up the food. It's in the hotel, so convenient. It's a sports bar.
