“Your Average Meal”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Went with a friend, the food filled us up, but was nothing special. The service was not the greatest, considering we had to ask another waitress for refills,etc. However, it was nice outdoor seating and we didn't go home hungry! :)
Probably would go again to give it one more try, because there were some other items on the menu that may be more satisfying and our waitress/waiter could be better next time.
Appetizers were good.

“The good, the bad and the ugly”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

I'm not sure what rating to give this restaurant since things seemed to be all over the place.

The good - 7 out of 8 people in our party had a very awesome meal with huge portion sizes. The hockey game was on and it was a perfect balance of being able to hear the game and still be able to hold a conversation. The beer was good and cold. The men's bathroom was clean.

The bad - a couple people in our party ordered mixed drinks and they were watered down, tasteless and overpriced. I couldn't recognize my drink as an amaretto sour. It was the worst one I've ever had and I've tasted them in many different establishments over the years. Adding an $8.50 price tag on it just made it even worse. It tasted like amaretto and water.

The ugly - the women's bathroom was very foul smelling and quite dirty which was weird for a sport bar filled with mostly men. One individual in our party ordered the all you can eat chicken wings and halfway through the second basket (a total of 15 wings) she came across one that was quite undercooked and tasted foul. She lost her appetite and couldn't eat anymore. The waitress didn't look impressed when this was brought up. When the bill came she had been charged the full amount. She approached the waitress about a discount and she disappeared. She came back awhile later and had indicated that because she ate between 1-2 lbs of wings, she had to charge her for 2 lbs. The money wasn't a big deal (as this was being paid for by our company) but the manner in which it was positioned could have been a lot better.

“Rude and over priced”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Had family get together and made reservation. Told only had 1 hour for dinner. Food below par, greasy, small portions very expensive. Three of us ordered prime rib and got steak. Tried to send back and was then told that they didn't have any prime rib. Steak dinner more expensive. Still charged full price for all 3 meals. Complained to management and told that there were other restaurants in town. Dinner was over $300.00 Will definitely take management advice and eat somewhere else
