“VISIT REVIEW”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

Found this place to be average overall, the staff were cordial, place was clean, but food was just okay and took a long time to get delivered to table. Followup was less than stellar...and it provoked the guests to complain about an 18% gratuity built into bill with no notification of it. We found that 18% to be high for the service we received and without a notification of it, many of the parties left an additional tip of about 15%. as we did and only discovered this after we had left. We felt this was in very poor taste by the restaurant. While Fort Dodge has many eating places, there is a decided lack of family based homecooked places. The food was for the most part frozen food...the salads while simple were fresh. I feel that if the Sports Bar theme was not there or there were a better selection of quality establishments, this place would struggle badly. As a group, we all agreed that this place did not generate a genuine desire for any of us to return.

“Come for the beer and sports...the food, not so much”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Joined four of my co-workers for lunch at the Sports Page, and each of us had at least one complaint about the food, i.e. chili is lousy, the french dip tastes like turpentine, the soup is like a lump, etc. The atmosphere seems nice enough, and there are ample tv's to watch your team play, but the food is not very good. I'm not planning on returning if the invitation is extended.

“Best Hamburgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a gem in North Central Iowa where the locals just can't get enough. American grill menu with outstanding 1/2 lb. handmade pattys burgers cooked to order, Menu has plenty of choices of various burger and other types of sandwiches besides choices of steaks. Just like all sports grills, lots of large screen TVs but not turned up past conversation level, so the customers ears aren't bleeding when they leave the establishment. Staff Iowa friendly and efficient.
