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.

Went here for dinner and drinks. I thought the food and atmosphere were good. There are a number of high end restaurants in downtown Charlotte but if you just want to kick back and have some bar food and drinks at a reasonable price this is a good spot. I didn't give a 5 because I thought the wings were... More

I loved the fact that we got to sit outside to get the full Charlotte Downtown experience, service was really, really slow. The food took forever to come out, I had ordered a French Onion Soup & had pieces of our appetizer in it, not happy! I was there to have a nice time because we were there for the... More

We stopped here for lunch before going to the Carolina Panthers football game. Even though they were crowded, the service was excellent. We were able to eat lunch and still get to the 1:00 pm game in plenty of time. The only issue is they cannot serve beer before 12:00 on Sunday. There are many TV's to watch all the... More

Service was good, appropriately attentive. Wide array of beers on tap, including local craft brews. As can be expected, wine selection is lacking . Don't get the nachos - the chips are way too salty. Cheese is cheese sauce, I think a spicy version of velveeta. A couple shreds of lettuce. Icky

I eat lunch here quite frequently and its always pretty good and the price is right. I really like the tacos. Both the chicken tacos and the island shrimp tacos and the price is about 10 for two tacos and fries. The fries are really good, I think they may use some sort of beer batter for the fries as...

My coworkers and I have eaten here for a few years. We have never had issues until the last few months. I have food allergies. We told our waiter. He blatantly didn't care. He put food on my plate that he was informed I was allergic to. He took the food off of my plate, cross contaminating the other food.... More

The beer and food were great and extremely friendly service too. This was a Saturday evening and there were college football games on and the supporters were having a lively evening. This made it a great atmosphere in the bar.
