Not real fancy but great food. Great service and friendly crowd. Stopped by a few times this month for a cold beer and wings. My husband loves the cheese steaks.

The food at Boiler Room Bar and Grill is okay! The service left a lot to be desired! The place is basically a dive!

After moving from Philadelphia twenty years ago I had given up on finding a decent cheesesteak. Now my search is over! The Boiler Room's cheesesteak is as good as they get! Not only did we have one of the best cheesesteaks I have ever had but they had great onion rings and chili too!

The Boiler Room Bar/Grill is definitely not fancy, but they still make an awesome Cheese Steak. Pure Ribeye, on a soft hoggie bun with provolone, mushrooms, onions & light on the peppers (just the way I ordered it). My friend and I also had an order of Onion Strings, thinly sliced onions and fried to perfection. Nice way to end... More

Its a relaxed feeling, with friendly fun staff. Happy Hour on drinks and we have tried numerous things on the menu and all are wonderful! The staff is willing to fix your food the way you want it. Prices are very reasonable. Great juke box! Lots of locals hang out there!!

They don't wear gloves when preparing food, waitress coughed into her hand, went out to smoke, returned and didn't wash hands, cook had long hair, not wearing a hair net. Prices were high, French fries were 5$ for a single order! It was hard to enjoy our sandwiches after seeing all of those health violations!

Exterior looks a little shady, its a dive bar in Bradenton. But damn it, its good. Service is great, the steak (or chicken) sandwich has had me coming back for years. Sit at the bar and Watch them take the meat out and cook it in front of you. I live in Sarasota but whenever i come up to Bradenton,... More

Great, inexpensive pub grub. No better cheesetseak anywhere we have eaten. They make them from fresh cuts of rib-eye. We split one and get fries. Beer is moderately priced too.Do NOT be intimidated by the exterior.It is old, corner bar personified, and the staff is friendly..

First, onions straws were fantastic and plentiful. Enjoyed the food okay but got way over-charged. After three tries to get the bill right, we got the bill within $.60 of being correct and then we were told by waitress that they always pad the bill $.30 per person. Nothing in writing about a cover charge. Sounds illegal but we paid... More

Stopped here with a friend. I thought he had been here before but he said it was his first time. Small menu options so chose the cheeseburger and beer. The beer was ICE Cold and the burger huge and well dressed. This is a good ole place to have some beers, some good food, and play pool. Its not fancy... More
