We came in for breakfast at 9am. About 5 tables total. After 10 minutes we finally got our drink order. The waitress stated they didn’t have any creamer. We had to go to the front desk to get our own. We finally got to order...after about 15 minutes. 30 minutes into our wait, the waitress informs us that they have no batter to make pancakes or waffles. We switch our daughters meal to one of the only 3 other options. My husband asked for a refill on coffee and water. 20 minutes later, drinks still had not been filled. We got up to walk out after an hour waiting on eggs, and she informs us that our food was ready. Drinks still had not been filled. We get our food. My husband’s biscuits and gravy were two biscuits, white gravy, a sausage patty and cut up into chunks on top. My kids hardly ate their breakfast. The waitress kept stating that there were other tables in front of us, that’s why we had to wait so long. Yet, no one had food in front of them. During our hour wait, we received one prompt for refills that never came, no empty glasses were cleared, no explanation about why our breakfast was taking an hour, nothing. Then our bill came, and our total was nearly $40 for two kids meals that were FREE, two all American breakfast plates, one coffee and two orange juices. Absolutely. Without a DOUBT. Worst service I have ever had.More

My experience was absolutely horrible. It was my first time at the restaurant and it will be my last. We came in as a family after a funeral as a big group and my table never once had a server come over to get a...drink order or give us a menu or ask if we were doing ok. If we wanted a drink we went up to the bar. Worst experience I have ever had in a restaurant and I am a server myself. Will not be back...More

This restaurant is attached to the Holiday Inn Express just off of Hwy. 63. The food was good and the lunch prices were reasonable. However our server was too busy chatting at the bar to refill our beverages. Service is important. I would probably give...them another try, but hopefully the service would be better. It was a time of day that they were not busy at all so service should have been great!More

I really like this place. It sits a little off the road, kind of hard to see, but worth going to. It has a great beer selection, about 40 on tap. The food was delicious, served fast and plentiful. Probably some of the best fries...in Columbia. It’s definitely on my list of places to eat in Columbia!More

We spent the night at the hotel next door and needed a quick bite. We walked over to Cheerleaders. The space is large and decorated nicely. There were not many there on a week night after 7.30pm. The waitress was nice, but struggled to keep...our water and tea glasses full. We ordered simple, salads and nachos. It was just OK.More

My first time was a week ago-2nd time was yesterday. I traveled to Columbia for business and we decided to give Cheerleaders a try. It is large and accommodating. The service was excellent both times, I loved my Reuben and my friend loved her veggie...burger. I had the smoke wings last week-different and delicious.

Food was great wings were very big with a lot of substance, burger that my coworker had looked fantastic. It was literally walking distance/connected to hotel holiday inn we stayed at. The only thing was it seemed understaffed and a little slower that’s I expected...considering there were only two tables other than us. It was good. I’d recommend.More

We met some others at this sports bar for lunch as they were on their way to Lake of the Ozarks. It was easy access off and on US 63 and the online menu offered a nice variety of items. We were there midweek, arriving...about 1:00. There were a handful of patrons there, but soon our 5-top was the last seating. The chairs, by the way, were most comfortable. Two of us had the burger and both said it was very good; two of us had the chicken sandwich, again with good reviews. I had the lamb wrap and was pleasantly surprised. While not quite a gyro, it was very flavorful and the tzatziki sauce was refreshing. And the fries.....all of us proclaimed them delicious, some of the best we had had. No one had any left on a plate. Of course, service was excellent, but I can imagine that during Mizzou games or any major sporting event, this place would be packed and boisterous. However, we are certainly going to return if we are on the east side of Columbia and needing a bite. Did I mention the fries?More

Service was slow. Burger was ok, nothing at all special or noteworthy and was actually kind of cold, likely because it took so long to get it. Ho-hum.

Gave it a second chance as thought it was too loud. Volume okay, but understaffed so very slow service. Chicken in a Hawaiian entree was small and mushy. Rice was warm at best. "Three layer carrot cake" was only two layers, and probably thawed from...frozen like the chicken. Strike two is enough for this batter - I'm passing on Cheerleaders from now on.More

We had planned on going into downtown Columbia for dinner, but when we came out of the Mizzou basketball game (which we won in overtime) we were met with freezing rain. Made it back to the Holiday Inn Express at 63 and stadium, and did...not feel like chancing driving any further. This restaurant was right next to the hotel, so we walked over there. Other reviews were fair to good, so we were a little apprehensive, but evrything turned out great. Great selection of beer (they were not out of any as other reviews had mentioned), it was very cold, very reasonably priced, I had fish and chips, the fish was hot and nicely breaded, and the homemade chips were really good. My wife had the black and bleu burger, cooked as she requested, tasted great as did the fries. The even asked us if we were staying next door, and said that meant we got a 10% discount of the food. We would be happy to come back next time we are in Columbia.More

Had a group of 9 people that went to Cheerleaders. One in the group had called ahead and so we had a table waiting for us. We did not have to wait to order, got our drinks quickly, and did not wait that long for...our food. There was an extensive menu and the food was good. No complaints that I heard. Drinks were refilled on regular basis. The place was a bit loud (not overly) making conversations more difficult. Most likely that's expected with a sports bar.
