“Nothing fancy...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2011

It's the only alternative to Bruffs in Emporia if you want to eat a burger and watch the game. The environment isn't on par with Bruffs, but the service is considerably better. The food isn't any better either, and is kind of pricey considering the quality... $11.00 for a chicken fingers basket!!!

Still, the service beats Bruffs. And that alone makes it a viable option in Emporia.

“Great bar scene for a small town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2011

The service is great, the owner is a former teacher turned local hero, and the food is delicious. Not too pretentious, and the prices are just right. My only complaint... it can get rowdy as a local bar scene, but never dangerous.

“Sports Bar With Okay Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2010

This is a long-time favorite in Emporia. Sports-themed, with lots of ESPN-filled TVs on the walls, mostly sports bar type food, it is family friendly and relaxed. They have a nice wheat beer on draft, and Amber Bock, both of which improve its rating with me. There is a nightly dinner special, and the rib-eye steak is a good value, it fills the plate and is always cooked nicely (wish it was a quarter- or half-inch thicker).

This is a good alternative to the chain places like Appleby's ... some local flavor, good service, and the food is comparable and maybe a notch better. Emporia doesn't have many places that fit that standard ... Coach's is better if you have kids with you, Bruff's is a good alternative for more of a grown-up bar feel.
