Went here for lunch, surprised we were carded at the front door (we are definitely AARP age). Climbed up 3 flights of stairs (there is an elevator), bar had lots of TVs for sports, lots of tables. Bartender was very knowledgeable about beers, there was quite a selection of microbrews categorized by type, listing alcohol content as well. Bar menu... More

We went in to catch a baseball game and have a couple of drinks. It was a lot of fun. Good service and really good food.

Fun atmosphere for bar games. Basic pub food. Service was good and came with a smile. Busy night too. Looks like a more younger crowd, but some families were there.

Nothing more to say than waited in a empty grill with two bartenders seeing us at a table and left when they didn't eve acknowledge we were there. Avoid unless you like not getting service.

This is a great place to hangout,have a great selection of craft beers and play some games... We frequented this establishment several times and enjoyed. We did not eat here but the plates coming out looked great. The place is huge and laid out well for friends and groups.

This multilevel sports bar was amazing. There were a couple of floors and both were packed by 6 pm. The basketball tournament was on and it was in high gear. The beer was adorable and the wings were some of the best I have ever had. This is certainly a place where the young folks frequent based on the number... More

I like this pub. Didn't try the food but the craft beers are soooo much more satisfying than Mr Bud. And at $4 each, well worth it. I will return.

Conveniently located across from our hotel. Ordered some appetizers and beers. Slowest server ever and it wasn't overly crowded. She wasn't aware of what kind of beers they had. The apps were very tasty.

Food was good. Pricey. Family of 4. We shared appetizers. Definitely a bar feel which we didn't mind. Played games afterwards which kids enjoyed. There is a bouncer outside front door at 6pm.

We weren't expecting a sports bar when we stumbled across this place, and were put-off by the massive screens and sports theme, but if one did want to watch a game here I suspect it would be a great place to be (they also have pay-games to play, like air hockey and pinball). We came for the "over 100 beers"... More
