Was there for open Mic with Mike, and Karaoke Friday. The place was busy, service was good. Food is bar style and not much for flair. Would probably go back if staying at the attached Atrium Inn.

I've been going to the PressBox prior to Coliseum events, and PNE concerts for about four years, and have always enjoyed the food and service. It's also a good place to grab a couple of lower priced drinks before shelling out $8 at the fair. My last visit however, was beyond strange. On the Appie menu is a chicken fingers... More

I had a Cajun halibut sandwich with steak fries and they were pretty good even by normal restaurant standards. Nice portions, fresh fish, and well spiced. Looking at the menu, they have quite a variety so I would put their food well ahead of the average sports bar. Service for me was good, but the place wasn't busy at the... More

We used a voucher given by the Atrium. Apply, two entrees all sucked! Thankfully, not so much as styrofoam and plastic along with the server forgetting the main of a spinach/asagio dip is more then unfortunate...NO lid was nasty! I won't be back.

This pub is a decent sports lounge. We went here for a quick lunch. The menu had a good number of choices and we went for good old potato skins/boats. They arrived quickly and were tasty with adequate toppings.

Food was decent... a lot of hockey screens. It is a sports bar so pretty average as they go. Prices were reasonable. We had fish and chips and Ribs. Coleslaw could use a dressing on it instead of just wet cabbage.

We have been stopping here before every Giants game for the last 10 years. My husbands favorite dish is the fish sandwich with coleslaw. He loves coleslaw and this is this is the best he has ever had. I normally stick to salads but I ventured out and tried the fried chicken. I love fried chicken but normally can't eat... More

Stopped in for dinner as we were staying next door at the Holiday Inn Express and didn't want to eat at the PNE fair again as we had lunch there earlier in the day. My veggie burger was quite tasty as were the fries. Hubby, however, said that his beef burger tasted at though it had been cooked previously in... More
