Wings, beer, pizza, and service are all absolutely perfect! Live band during dinner hours makes it hard to socialize. Maybe save the music for when people don't have to yell in order for a waitress to ask and answer questions about food and drinks etc.

Perfect sports bar with TVs all around! Great place to watch March Madness! Expansive menu and beer selection. Very generous portions and everyone is over 21 years old.

Visited on a recent weeknight (told to try the wings) and was very crowded, so i figured well it must be good. Sat at the bar. Service was profoundly slow, you know the kind - where bartenders don't make eye contact, walk by you, etc....More
