“Lively, good food and plenty of sport to watch!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Had a good night out here including dinner. It was almost opposite our hotel and was a good local option. Plenty of tv screens to watch the various sports on the service was very good.

“Mad and Bad”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

This place was a great surprise. And in the middle of nowhere really. It had this amazing capacity to be both crammed to the rafters and yet pleasant to be in. The barman was amazing. He saw new people at the bar shook our hands asked our names and that was it all night first name terms. I love that. I'm so shallow. He got a great tip. Good work sir. There must have been at least 25 TVs in every room, and there are a lot of rooms. All showing sport. The food was excellent. Classic American pub grub, brilliantly made.

“Cheap, fun, and delicious!”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Good place to watch sports games, play beer pong, arcade games while having cheap beers. Food is actually good- not like typical greasy bar food. The crowd varies depending on the day/time but mainly college kids.

“Extremely hostile place”
Reviewed April 24, 2010

Good space. Good bar staff. But the owners are highly capricious and cut people off on a whim. It's OK to have fights in the bathroom, apparently. But order in the wrong place and you're cut off. By all means avoid this place. There are mellower places to go nearby.
