We had been walking downtown checking out food trucks, when it began to rain hard. We ducked into the Independent Sports bar much to my husbands delight. Great beer choices and lots of TV screens. He asked for golf and the bartender quickly accommodated him.

Didn't try the food but it looked good. Great bar. Great staff. Decor fantastic. Good place for groups, big enough and spread out so each group can have their own area. Great selections of beers. Try 3 way IPA by Fort George.

Next to the Benson, we popped in for derby day/ cinco de mayo and had mint juleps and street corn nachos. The bartender was awesome. The menu had some really good options and the sports-themed interior was very interesting...be sure to read their story

Not just your typical sports bar menu. The food was good and plentiful. The service was on top of it. Your glass didn’t sit empty.

We went in for dinner & we were not disappointed. Great menu from Beers to Food. My spouse had a well cooked burger and a hand the sandwich with a salad. They give you choices between salad, soup or fries. Everything tasted great nice presentation.
