Presentation of food great, Atmosphere great, service great. Food just ok. So as much as I wanted to give it 2 stars , I bumped it up to 3 for all the “great reasons” and for having Heinz ketchup .

We ordered 60 wings for a holiday party (half mild and half honey bbq). They were really excellent and the blue cheese dressing that came with them wasn’t some runny blue cheese you typically get with wings. It was thick and delicious. I would definitely...More

Great atmosphere, great food and average price. We had the buffalo calamari which had great taste. We also had the buffalo wings, chicken fajitas, Turkey burger and cob salad. Everything was cooked to order and very tasty.

This is a nice little sports bar off the beaten path of broadway. Small quarters in the dining room, good size bar and lots of tv’s. Typical bar food at an average price. Burgers are good and so are chicken wings.
