I Love sitting outside in the summer. The service is always great, the food is good, and the prices are reasonable. Definitely a great place to check out.

During the summer they have a patio and lots of sand, palm trees, tiki torches, beach volleyball and live bands every night. They can seat a lot of people as there is also a large sports bar inside. Unfortunately they do not have as many parking places as seats. The neighboring businesses monitor their lots and you will be towed... More

I spoke to "Manager Joe" and he graciously made a reservation for the gang on Saturday at 6:30...perfect! We were escorted to the "deck" and proceeded to have a fantastic evening, one and all!...

Looking at the outside of the bleak black building and the location in a shopping complex one would never realize that outback are palm trees, a lake and sand that transports one to a Florida beach complete with surfboard tables, a boat bar, live bands and volleyball courts. The strawberry chicken salad was terrific. It is a place that can... More

We stopped in on a Thursday night for dinner and drinks. We were greeted at the front door but that's where communication ended. We stood at the front for 15 minutes with no one waiting in front or behind us. There were three servers standing directly to our left at the counter who were too busy talking amongst themselves to... More

Second time we've stopped in to The Score for a quick drink & appetizer. Have tried to count the multiple TVs, but have given up there are so many & appears each have some different sport playing. This time we ordered the $7.99 8 pc grilled chicken tenders w/spicy garlic, medium buffalo sauce, & ranch on the side. Includes 1... More

We have been here several times and enjoyed it each time. 14 of us dined for a Graduation weekend dinner. Service was good, food was great and price was affordable. The bar area is always filled with people and excitement. Plenty of TVs. Had a very good time here!

It is like sitting on the beach in Florida. Palm trees, sand and water surround you and great live music all summer. In the winter the sports bar area is teaming with excitement. Great food and drinks and the service is excellent
