“Still a great place to watch a game”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Champps at eastview Mall is a great place to kick back with a drink and a nice meal and watch a game...or two, or fifteen! The place is entirely lined in big-screen TVs, and you can catch almost any game you desire in there.

To me, the best part of Champps' menu is the salads. They have a chopped Oriental salad that has all kinds of wonderful fruit and spice flavors, with chicken and crunchy Chinese noodles. Also, the Ahi Tuna platter is really, really good as well, with sesame-crusted Ahi tuna surrounding a great array of salad greens. (Just be careful not to dip your tuna into too much of the green wasabi sauce that dots the outside of the plate, or you'll have clear sinuses for a month!)

This is still a great place to go...I recommend it!

“A surprisingly great dinner”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

We wound up at Champps because the lines at other Eastview Mall restaurants were too long (it was prom night). It was a little noisy being a sports bar but the food was great. I'll especially make note of the avocado appetizer and the Tuscan Salmon. Also they made a guacamole burger into a veggie burger for my daughter on request.

“Another fun meal surrounded by big screen TVs”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

We enjoy Champps in Victor, NY, which is located in the new extension of the Eastview Mall. Champps is a very large restaurant that is always filled because it is a casual, fun place to eat that is also very fun. It is all situated in one very large dining room, with at least two dozen large screen televisions surrounding the table. No matter what team or game you follow, it will almost certainly be up on one of them!

The food at Champps is also casual, but really good. They have a ton of great sandwiches, as well as a lot of more substantial meals too. Their kitchen is very flexible....they had a Kung Pao Chicken dish that I wanted, but I asked them if they could make it with shrimp instead. They said yes, and then proceeded to give me exactly what I asked for, (it was a coulpe extra bucks, but they put lots of shrimp in!). As far as the dish itself, it was very tasty, although I must admit that I could tell it was a sauce from a bottle, versus the real Chinese spices found in a genuine Kung Pao dish. No worries, though, as it was still tasty and I did enjoy it.

If yuo want to eat at this particular restaurant, try to avoid coming right around 6 PM, because you will wait for a table. They told us that the wait would be "between 30-45 minutes," and it turned out to be about 40, so they were accurate in their statement. Plus, since the restaurant is inside a VERY good mall, you can always shop while you wait. (Great...let's spend even MORE money! Ha!)

Im summary, this is a nice place to eat, and I always enjoy going back.

“Good meal in a lively environment”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

While Champps is a chain they do a good job at just about everything. Tops is the atmosphere with a large open room that holds the bar, dining area and even kitchen to an extent. The design creates a warm and lively environment. The bar is nice in size with a decen selection of beers on tap and in bottle. A rather large menu with good choices and fair prices. Any food I've had here has tasted great and keeps me coming back for another wonderful experience.
