Didn't eat but had a drink int he car each night I was staying at the hotel - it gets busy & loud on football nights, but a good atmosphere before & after the game - very good & prompt waiter service.

It should not be that difficult to prepare French fries and a burger, well unfortunately in my case that was the case. The meat was prepared done vs medium and the French fries i had returned. Tables were dirty. Overall not a good experience and no value for money.

Ballpark prices in a chain hotel. The atmosphere was very nice and there were plenty of sets to watch the game, but the prices were unreal $17 for a burger! Literally $9.75 for one pint. I was one and done.
