“Marginal At Best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

My wife and I went to Tomahawk on a Friday night before a Downtown Get Down. We had a Groupon for $15 for $30 of food. As with every small business restaurant who didn't realize Groupon is a sham for them, the coupon wasn't honored to our satisfaction upon receiving our bill. We didn't bother talking to a manager because we were sitting next to a table of employees who were telling vulgar vaginal stories and we wanted to peace out. We obviously weren't drinking enough for that not to be awkward.

To start from the beginning, the parking is really shady. They have a terribly designed lot with limited spaces built for door dings and drunken car crashes. In retrospect, they should have just torn down the old restaurant and built a new one. We sat outside where according to the ads on 97.9 ESPN radio, there was to be a plethora of HDTV's outdoors. There was one, and it didn't even have a HD feed. Major fail ESPN radio.

They have a big menu, but its typical bar food with some weird stuff thrown in. Everything is fried that's not a burger or a salad, and probably came straight from a bag in the freezer. Their pitchers are college small and so are the cups.

The bar/grill just looks cheap. Everything on the outside is worn and dirty and it looks like they kept everything from the prior restaurant. There is no way it could get that much wear and tear for being such a new restaurant.

This would probably be a great restaurant to go to and cause some trouble when you are wasted, but not the best for a casual night out.

“Good FSU-themed Sports Bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

We went to Tomahawk Sports Bar and Grill before the FSU/OU game. The atmosphere is definitely sports bar, but not a more upscale one like Buffalo Wild Wings. We had Fried Pickles and Victory Fries for appetizer. Both were good bar food selections. We had the chili cheese hot dogs. They were OK, a little lukewarm for a hot dog.

Prices are reasonable and the buzz for the big game in the place was worth the trip. Glad we chose this for our pregame meal

Great little place to eat! good food and atmosphere. If you go there on Sundays after football games they do a recap of the game
