Like to look at posters of men? This is your place. Not sure why there are no pictures of women like most bars.

We waited 3 hrs for our group to get their food. Ridiculous! The waitresses did not smile one time. They looked uterly baffled when asked a question. Fries came out undone, but was charged for them twice. My husband and I had finished our meals and my daughter had not even gotten hers yet. Of course we shared with her.... More

Rivals needs step back and go back to the basics. Use to love their wings but over the last 6 months or so they come out warm at best. I think there burgers are frozen. The beer isn't real cold either. Use to be a go to place for me but now I wouldn't recommend it. Hopefully some things change...

We ate at Rivals on Monday and had a bad meal, bad service and could barely hear each other even though the place was half empty. Mexican night is a joke. $7 nachos with beef were made with liquid "cheese", like you might expect at a gas station or movie theater. Terrible taste and waitress never came back to the... More

Food used to be better years ago when we lived in Williamsport. I think they need to change the menue and add few thing. Service is very good. Food blah and wings like any bar wings.

I haven't been here in awhile but my son wanted wings and we know to avoid chain places when it comes to good wings. Ordered the bucket of wings because my son wanted to see what a bucket of wings looked like. They didn't come in a bucket but that was no matter. Wings were great service awesome.

Rival's was a great place to get the best wings in town. We are very disappointed to discover the quality of the food here. Wait time was not bad and so the service but when food arrived it was not only tasted bad but it was not cooked. I am surprised that owners are letting the place slip this bad.... More

We were recently in the area to watch my brother's Lycoming soccer game. Afterwards we decided to grab a bite to eat. The wait at the new Buffalo Wild Wings was over an hour, so he recommended Rivals. We got a table right away and were pleased to see a kids menu as my two daughters were with us. They... More
