Even though it was during the Belk Bowl, we were seated quickly. The waitress was very attentive; brought beverage refills without being asked, and checked in on us repeatedly. Food was excellent, portions were generous and the prices were astonishingly low. Would recommend highly.

Have it a second go and alas same horrific service. Free food again. Which is nice. But really? Hire some wait staff. Or have the ones that are racing by our table say hello I'll be right with you. Never again. Food was average too.

We were in Charlotte for the night on our way down to Naples. After a 12 hour day of driving we stopped in here and immediately loved the atmosphere. It was Monday night football, and the place was packed. Our server was very sweet. We had the fish tacos and pub burger which we really enjoyed. They put the Leafs/Anaheim... More

This place has absolutely great food. They have many options of beer and other liquors. My hubby and I love their CAH fries. The server told me they fry the fries in beer batter. Crunchy and delicious! We also enjoy their mini burgers and chili soup. For dessert we had a warm chocolate brownie with a scoop of cookie ice... More

Dry rub wings had too much pepper flavor. ..overwhelmed other ingredients. ..ordered a rum runner...and it tasted horrible - like it had whiskey in it...Other drink order was supposed to include sprite, but only had grenadine and vodka. Service was good, but everything else lacking.

During a recent business trip three colleagues and myself stopped in for lunch. I enjoyed the Caribbean fish tacos very much. The server (Lottie) was very friendly and attentive to our little group. They had a wide selection of beer available and the atmosphere was pleasant and clean. When in Charlotte again, I am sure that we will include this... More

Great Uptown find! Everyone had a great meal here. Meals where only around $10. A great price for a downtown eatery!

This place is a good spot for a beer after work although the service can be a bit spotty. Food is just ok.

Bottom line...if you're going for a game, then this is a good option. There are plenty of large TVs visible from all the different seating locations and the booze and beer options are as they should be. The food, however, is just eh. There's plenty to choose from, but the quality is just...well, average sports bar food.
