It was good service and good food. The only thing was the boneless wings were chewy. Drinks were good.

I went here on a Monday for a later dinner while in town for work. Not busy, sat at the bar, and was advised that they had a special on boneless wings from the bartender. He offered me a drink right away and his overall service was as expected. I just wish I would have gone with the traditional wings... More

My flight was cancelled so I stayed at the Holiday Inn across from the airport. BWW is walking distance from the hotel. I was there on a Sunday night, during the NBA finals. There were not enough staff working. I sat for almost 15 minutes before anyone took my drink order. Food was ok. Service continued to be slow. If... More

If you've been to one BWW, you've pretty much seen them all. Difference is quality of bartenders and servers. The BWW in Bloomington had the usual food, servers and bartenders. Nothing poor but nothing special either. I will say this, if you happen to be a female, you will get better service both from the server and from the kitchen.... More

This is the best sports bar in town. 30 draft beers and 65 TVs! The food always comes out hot and fresh. I'm a big fan of the traditional wings on special Tuesday's.

I am absolutely in love with BWWs. We eat there when we can. Unfortunately, we can only eat there on special occasions because of the price. I wish they would drop their prices some so I could eat there at least once a week. The best wings in town for sure and you cant beat the TVs and sports while... More

I'm not into the sports atmosphere of the restaurant, but for their wings I'll either go or grab some carryout.

I have eaten in BWWs in Florida and now Illinois. This location offers the standard multiple big screen TV model so if you need to catch a particular game it is a good choice. I will say we had some great dry rub wings. I would not recommend their blackened and blue burger - way over spiced! The chili queso... More

We had a rather large group, but the waitress was very good at keeping everyone topped off and satisfied. Whenever another person would arrive- she was right there to take their order- we never had to look for her. The wings were good- it was rather difficult to decide on the seasoning with all of the choices. Their beer selection... More
