My husband and I ate there one time......service was awful and the waitress was unfamiliar with the menu. We were charged for every refill of iced tea, which I asked the server about when she gave us our bill. She told me they charge for tea refills, we paid almost eight dollars for tea, colored water. Needless to say I... More

We had a average size group of about 12 and our waiter seemed bothered every time he came to our table. And he really only came to our table when asked to. And then I find out the one mixed drink I ordered was $9!!! I would not have ordered this if I knew the price but they don't put... More

Face it this a chain restaurant so my review will. Be short and to the point. Clean......good food......great staff. What more do you need? It happens to be right across from the Bloomington illinois airport so that's a plus as well.

Food was very good, service was excellent, lots of TV's with several choices of sports to watch. A little loud but you expect that at a sports bar. Reasonably priced.

BW experience with a lively crowd. Unique feature is that this BW has an unique patio setting with large overhead doors.

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.
