“Love this place!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

This is a great new restaurant! My husband and I really like the booths with the personal beer taps, it's a great place to watch a game. The atmosphere is really warm and modern (I love the light fixtures!). The food is delicious, the sushi is so surprisingly good. The Mexican Roll is a must. The service is very attentive.

We have been here three times and each time has been a great experience.

“Decent sports tavern/bar”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Stopped there today for lunch after the movies at Yorktown. Atmosphere is OK, lots of room. Smelled a little fishy inside - surprising for a Tavern. Had burgers for lunch - burgers & fries were pretty good. Had the Trademark Tavern draft beer, made by 2 Brothers, it was pretty good too. They have draft pulls at each booth so you can re-fill your own glass.
Service was average and they didn't tell you that they had free hot wings during the Bear's game - we had to ask why the people were going to that table.
I'd go back there for lunch, not so sure it would be my dinner choice.

“What a surprise!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Had plans to go to another restaurant in the area, but wasn't what we thought it would be, so came here instead. Thought it would be more along the lines of previous restaurants in this building (Magnums at one time) but it wasn't and that wasn't what we were looking for anyway. Upscale bar/restaurant, but still has a sports feel to it. Lot's of TV's for watching the games, great service and food was delish. Only shared a bunch of appetizers (corned beef egg rolls are to die for) and mini burgers with a few choices. Large bar with seating. Pub style tables in the bar. VERY reasonably priced drinks and appetizers. Highly recommened and would return. Going to return for their Sunday Bear's games with bottomless Mimosas ($10) free wings during the game, as long as it's an early game....

“The Worse...”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

By far, this is the worse restaurant that I have been to in some time. In one sentence: This place is cafeteria, food-service quality food. We started with appetizers...there is not much to choose from that is not deep-fried. We had fried cheese curds and a deep fried Reuben type wrap; both awful. Both tasted like freezer burn that was deep fried. We asked our server if the meatloaf and fried chicken were house-made and she said yes. I guess she does not know what house-made means. The fried chicken was the worse I had...ever. KFC tastes like 5-star quality compared to this. A very small serving that tasted warmed up. Food service mashed potatoes (think high school cafeteria) and mushy veggie completed the plate. My husband ordered the meatloaf, which was dried out with the exception of a salty gravy. Again, think food service cafeteria quality. Expensive desserts were marginal at best and our table tried all of them. Donuts were the best.

Avoid this place if you are looking for good food. They have live music at the bar and maybe it turns into a "scene" late at night. I guarantee this place will not be in business a long time unless they make a major transformation by hiring a chef and not warmer-upper.
