Nice to have a decent sports bar attached to a hotel. Good service and great burgers; good if you are at the convention center and don't have much time.

We ordered wings and the chicken sandwich. They seemed short-staffed which affected the speed of service. But it was decent, just ok. Definitely convenient if you are staying at the Marriott.More
