We left our hotel for supper, this looked inviting so we decided to give it a shot. Glad that we did. Fun atmosphere and great pizza. Wish there was 1 closer to home.

My son and daughter-in-law just had a baby and I wanted to send lunch up to the hospital. I didn't receive the text until an hour after they said they were ready for lunch. I FELT HORRIBLE because they were so hungry. I called the...restaurant, explained the situation and they grabbed my online order as soon as it came in and got it to the kids within a half hour! Thank you so much!More

Took my kids (9-16) for pizza here on a Friday night. They were so packed, we sat at the bar and ate. Kids loved the Meat Supreme. Great place to take an out-of-town visitor because there are lots of references to UNI and Iowa inside.

We had superb service by Toby!! He took great care of our group of 6. Our beef dip sandwich was large and ok, but not outstanding. The fries were good and served as requested. Fun environment and lots of tvs. Could stand to have a...deep cleaning as the bottom of high table chairs were sticky underneath. Bathrooms were clean.More

Let’s be honest: this is a very average local chain that doesn’t aim very high. It has a basic sports bar layout that isn’t particularly fun or lively. The bar is located out of the way to the side like an afterthought. Everything we ordered...was greasy and over-salted for our taste. The kettle chips are so salty I found them inedible. I expected my pepper jack chicken wrap to be lively, but it was bland and tasteless. The “jalapeño wrap” was colorless and chewy. The “craft draft” beer special for the night was Bud Light!More

Stopped by here to follow the Pork Councils Tenderloin Trail. It was fantastic. We each got the breaded tenderloin, as I think that’s the only way to have a tenderloin, even though they offered it unbreaded😉. I got the onion rings and husband got tater...tots. Both were additional cost. But soooo worth it. The onion rings were abundant as were the tots and not greasy. Will be back to try other foods. They seem to have an extensive menu.More

Stopped for late lunch with my husband. Got seated right away, it wasn’t very busy. Waited 10 minutes and no servers waited on us, no drinks, nothing. There were 3 tables near us that did receive service. Several servers were standing & talking near hostess...station. Very poor experience.More

I was craving pizza and the hotel recommended this restaurant. It was ok. The pizza was not as good as I was expecting based on what I was told. Not bad but not my favorite.

We shared a breaded pork tenderloin that was huge, thick and tender. Our group shares the taco pizza that was a regular,a Saturday special for $19.99. Very cheesy, lots of beef, and fresh warm tortilla chips on top. Great Taco sauce served on the side....Our waitress, Cassidy, was very friendly and attentive. She did very well as the restaurant had lots of groups there watching the NCAA bb tournament.More
