Right of the BC campus this landmark is THE place to grab drinks and food before the game. Very lively crowds with many big screen TV's to catch a variety of sports. Nice size beer list with a good blend of local and national brands

My husband and I go to Cityside pretty frequently since it is close to our apartment. They have a good variety of food and beer. The staff is always friendly and attentive. The nachos are great... sometimes we go just for those. Their pizzas are...More
