Wanted to eat and play so thought we would try this place out. Had a great time and great food as well. The place was packed but not crowded. The Wait staff was very curitious and knowledgeable. A++ thank you Main Event!

This is a sports bar cum restaurant with televisions lined up side by side showing all the sports channel available. With the more than a dozen TVs, shows are repeated on other parts of the wall. Been here twice and both times I left full. Standard fare for this sort of place like chicken fingers, pasta and buffalo wings. Food... More

Went here with a bunch of friends on a Friday night, I have never seen a menu as odd as this one. Very expensive for the type of place it is, the only thing half decent was the burger. We will not be going back

We visited this restaurant with another family on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy, but we were seated quickly. Our group of nine was greeted quickly by our waitress. She checked back with us several times as we decided what to order. She quickly brought our drinks and offered refills several times as we enjoyed our dinner. The food... More

Their burgers are the BEST. They have daily specials, and food is quite good. Because it is a sports bar, it is quite noisy. Service is quick and our orders are always brought out perfectly.

Ample portions, reasonable prices, loud busy setting with young wait staff. Nachos, ribs, burgers, salads, etc. Everywhere you look there are tv's. Surrounded by sports memorabilia you can purchase. Large drink menu. Children's menu limited. Lots of kids.

This is the second time we came here with a group of people. Jackie the day manager really was so helpful. I called in a week before and asked for a round table, told her we would like to order ahead of time and I wanted to know the cost so I could collect everyone's money. I called the day... More
