Decent place to catch a drink, bite to eat and a game. Good amount of tvs. Kind of off the beaten path. Which is what I like.

Love this place for lunch. This is a great spot to go with the girls at work for lunch. There is a chicken sandwich special on Wednesdays.

This bar was one of our stops on the Margarita March 2017. With 8 margaritas to drink this watermelon margarita was a welcome change of palate. We also tried the Frito Pie while there, small but tasty. Friendly service, bathrooms could have def been cleaner.

We are in town for the Monday Night Eagles game and spent most of Sunday evening at Cavanaugh's watching the other games. Decent bar food, cold beer, and our bartender Samantha was absolutely fantastic! We'll be back.

Samantha and Erin did a great job serving us for two different days. Food was great and drinks were priced very well for a big city. We were 5 men from out of town to watch the Eagles game and made us feel like locals.

First and last visit. If the bartender isn't catching up with the Kardashians with her co-worker, she's checking her phone or pretending to be a fashionista. The wings with Cav's sauce were good but the blue cheese was ranch and when challenged it wasn't fixed...More

Wings had be pre-cooked and warmed up / dried out. Typical neighborhood bar ambiance. Nothing to brag about here.
