The wings and boneless wings are great! The BBQ ribs and chicken are also good. They have a good choice of craft beers that they rotate often, so you get a chance to try some new brews. The only thing that l would say is below average are their fries. They seem to be a poor quality frozen fries. Order... More

No beer list, out of veggie burgers, and the fries were not good. We did not enjoy this place at all.

The specials on Tuesdays are usually good. The Korean smoked chicken tacos and the bacon wrapped grilled cheese are two of my husband's favorites. I really enjoy the reubens. The meat is lean and loaded with delicious sauerkraut. Small but varied selection of beers plus good service.

One of Fremont's favorite spots! Bar/restaurant is clean, great food, fast service, all reasonably priced. Terrific signature hamburger! Cost of meal for 2 - $20.

I really enjoy the walleye special on Fridays. It always tastes fresh and is rarely greasy or heavy. The atmosphere here is that of a bar/pub. There are steps that must be climbed to enter (unless there is a wheelchair ramp or lift I am unaware of). There are TV's inside to catch various games on. It is a good... More

Beer is the highlight here. Food is "ok". Except they used to do charcuterie boards with local foods. These were phenomenal!!! They also do a Tuesday night special burger, these are very creative and really good! Back to the beer... He has brought a touch of brewery/ craft beer to Fremont that was previously lacking. Always evolving mix of new... More

Football Friday Night at Time Out. Went here after a Fremont Ross game. Loved the patio area with the fire pit. Inside is a cool little place with lots of memorabilia. Owner was a great guy. Very nice. Played at Fremont and Urbana. Was glad they had some nice drafts (6 total) of quality brews not the regular slop that... More

This place looks like so many other sports bars. What sets it apart from the rest is their burgers. The one I had was on special so it may not be available all the time. It had bacon, swiss, fried egg, potato chips and PEANUT BUTTER! Yes, peanut butter. It was amazing! I didn't even put ketchup or any other... More

And if you love something different...wait for it on Tuesday when a special meal is created for the local appetite...The service is a delight and the chicken fingers are to die for!!! Moist and freshly made on location...from parmesan to spicy and freshly made cajun chips...perfect blend for beer of the month. If you are in town and want that... More

This place is also known for its Fri/Sat BBQ and large selection of craft beers. I don't believe it is yet listed in Trip Advisor. How can I go about sponsoring a review for this location? Thank you.
