Good brunch. Good service. Went there for a function. Reasonable food, service, and price. Would never have found this place on my own. Choice was pre-picked by others.

Stopped in here for dinner after the America's 911 ride. Food is always good here with happy hour specials until 7. Service is not that great. Servers try to hurry you up by grabbing plates and saying " are you done" while the plate is in front of you. Then when the check comes, they don't even place it in... More

Went here for a fraternity function. They provided some wings that were good, and some other stuff I couldn't eat. Some of my brothers and sisters in the third floor threw up but they didn't throw us out. A little cramped on the second floor but I'd go again for another function if I lived out there.

I ate in advance as I generally don't expect many sports pubs to have vegan options. This one didn't have too many options, but they don't pretend to either. Their drink menu is decent, plus the pool tables are fun.

Usually come here for the happy hour, when the drink prices are great and the atmosphere wonderful. Clientele seem to be from the nearby chain hotels. As the night goes on, locals show up. The bartenders are busy but friendly and service is great. There is an upstairs with lots of TV's. It is a great place to watch sports.... More

We ate here during the Olympics and we're thrilled that we could watch multiple events at the same time. Our waiter was super friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the bar had tapped out of our top three beer choices, but the waiter made some suggestions. While there was no gluten free menu, the waiter was knowledgable and suggested a gluten free... More

Came with a group of six other people. We all ordered something different. My fish and chips were okay. One co-worker had the pork chop and one was not cooked all the way. Another had the pulled pork sandwich and said the meat was dry and hard. Service was friendly and they apologized for the issues and comped the co-workers... More

My husband and I went here due to this spot serving breakfast all day. My husband had the triple play and I had the chicken Philly cheese steak with tater tots. The pancakes were not that good my husband asked for another meal. So he ended up with a chicken Philly cheese steak as well.

I stopped by here for a quick brunch and decided to go with the triple threat breakfast...at least that's what I think it was called. The meal consisted of 2 eggs, 4 bacon straps, and 2 pancakes. The eggs and bacon were standard course for what you would get anywhere, and the pancakes tasted a bit doughy and undercooked. The... More

Stopped in while in town for a conference to enjoy their 1/2 priced Monday burger night and was not disappointed. Was seated right away and served promptly. The burger was good - had the Smokehouse Burger. Would visit again.
