We reserved the 3rd floor for a Trade Union Election Victory Party. Everything was Top Shelf. The food, the service and the drinks were all exceptional. Staff cleared tables and kept Everything refreshed. This was 5 Star service in a Sports Bar. Huge central screen...showing Thursday Night Football game. Other screens with other sports were well placed around the room. If you order a catered event, make sure to include the meatballs as one of your menu choices.More

We rented the tented, outdoor dining area for a family gathering. Wonderful set up. Our servers Sam and Grace were SUPERB. From the appetizers to entrees to desserts, we enjoyed every course. Food was very good. There was cornhole and maybe a couple of other...games for the kids. It was perfect. A special thanks to the manager. I had a hard time finding a restaurant that would work with me for a large outdoor group, and he was most helpful. He even came out to meet us to make sure we were taken care of. We liked the desserts so much that we went back 2 nights later. Delicious.More

I am a United States Navy service member without a job that is trying to make ends meet driving for Doordash. I parked in their parking lot for 5 minutes to quickly pick up an order from a restaurant an Italian restaurant right across from...this pub. Apparently they have a notice saying that they boot your car if you park in that parking lot, which is nowhere inside the parking lot itself, so I had nearly no way of knowing what the consequences would be. The owner refused to reason with me, was condescending and rude. He robbed me of all the money I made tonight, and as you know, people do DoorDash out of necessity. For me it is because I came back from active duty and haven't been able to find a job for the past 4 months. Maybe I would've considered going to that place, but he owner's being an inconsiderate rude person - never. Hopefully karma gets him.More

My son’s soccer team was in town for a tournament and the team parent set up a last minute dinner for 20+ people. We went for dinner, not expecting anything much. However, the bartender made my husband a really good Manhattan, the service was attentive,...we were not crowded and there was plenty of space for the kids to spread out. I ordered the Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp, and it was fantastic! Oh, and I forgot to mention there was free parking across the street! I would highly recommend this place for a large group!More

I love the Sports Pub usually, I come here with co-workers a few times a month. Today was a rainy Saturday and it was moderately busy. I was seated In the front at a two top, I told the young hostess three times that I...needed a server, I know the menu by heart and was ready to order from the beginning. Lack of communication on her part and no peripheral vision.More

Enormous place with your typical sports bar menu. The staff was awesome -- they supported our party of seven which grew to a party of eleven without even blinking, which was pretty great. The food was good and the portions were large. It's incredibly loud...and crowded in there, but that's what you get at a sports bar on a Sunday Night.More

Went there with some business associates for drinks and a meal. Had the Chicken Corden Bleu over pasta. Its not what I usually order, but sounded good and it was. Place has a large selection of beers and three floors of sports memorabilia which created...a unique sports ambience.... not to mention the 50 plus TVs all carrying sports. Great service. A lot of different items on the menu. Someone at my table had the crab cakes which he totally enjoyed. Appropriate for all ages, I'll definitely be back.More
