“Tasty Food Close to Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

I'm happy to find another reasonable restaurant close to home. I had a salad with candied pecans hand dried cranberries and blue cheese--my favorite salad. I like to order salad because I can't make them as tasty at home. The others had philly cheese steak sandwiches which were so-so. But I'm eager to try other items on the menu because the location is attractive--in a small mall near a theatre. Lots of parking and other businesses nearby. Could be a nice place to "lunch."

“Great Wings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We had a large party so we were able to try 10 different flavors of wings both wet and dry and they were all fabulous. We also had several appetizers and my husband got to try several different beers. He thought he was in heaven. The food was awesome.

“Only go if you can't watch the game elsewhere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

The food is overpriced and tastes stale, with fake flavoring to cover it up. They get away with it because people come to watch games there.
