I love the wings at this place. Every time I'm in town, this is a must-go! Great for family too! This last visit our fries were not hot. The waitress kindly returned with too hot to handle fries just like we want them.

This is a big bar with a small local feel about it. It looks like it will fill up when there is an event next door. Basic menu and amazing burger easy to over order so make sure you have a good appetite. ( has good free open wifi)

Super easy from our hotel. Plenty of beer. Plenty of screens. Fish fry was excellent and exactly the typical greasy, crispy, crunchy delicious-ness that you want in a Friday fry. Service was perfect - they take care of you but leave you alone.

Beer is cold, probably a great location for events but food is not so good. I had the Cajun chicken sandwich and it was just a tangy saucy sandwich. My husband had the hot dog and it was all beef and good. Lots of kids here so a great place for families but just don't have high expectations for the... More

Yes--the food-on this particular Saturday night, was awful. Too bad because it's a great sports bar, with tons of TV's. We walked here after the Admirals game because we were starving. March madness was going as well, so a good sports bar seemed to be a good idea. When we walked in, I could smell hot wings. My mouth watered.... More

We ALWAYS come to Goolsby's prior to any event at the Bradley Center. Decent priced beer prices. Food is a little expensive and meals don't include fries! A must visit prior to an event!

Goolsby's is a great place to grab a drink or two before or after a Bradley Center event, but that's about it. The food is good by bar food standards, but not great. The burgers are very good and everything else is pretty much what you'd expect. The major downside to Goolsby's is the service, it's always slow. The last... More
