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.

We've been here several times and it is always good. The service is typical New York, the food is really good. I especially like the broiled seafood dinner and the seafood salad! Great bar area and the owner is always there to keep things moving in this busy neighbourhood spot.

The plus is our party of 15 was able to be quickly seated for dinner on a Saturday night and the service was good. The minus was the food.

Have been going there for years. It is a sports bar with a zillion TVs and every item on the menu is an allstar to itself. Great place to watch a game or to eat with a lareg group or your family. Owners are nice as is all of the staff.

The Main Event is a family style restaurant, with TV's in different locations, the food is good and the staff is friendly and helpful. They are always busy so there might be a wait.

The food is good, it's on the expensive side but not too bad, the service is very good and it's clean. It is what it is.
