This place is charm-free. It can be crowded and noisy which would be fine if the food was worth it but it's not. I sthink I have read that there are new owners so perhaps they will get their act together but in themeantime, drive on by.

Most sports bars are similar with; games on the TVs, decent beer/drinks, decent bar food and lots of people. This place is the same. Not that that is bad because it's the type of place I would frequent back home in MN when not on vacation. We were there on a Friday and had the fish fry with a couple of beers. We sat/stood at the end of the bar because we met some friends of friends there. Bartenders were great. I would stop again because as I said it was the type of place I am use to.

Everything about this place appeals to us. The drinks are large, with the right mixture of alcohol, the atmosphere is fun (completely remodeled) and people have fun here. I like the wings, hamburgers, and again the drinks. The booths have individual TV's that you set to your favorite station.
