Visited RTP for a week long business trip and stayed at a nearby hotel. I was hoping that I had found a good watering hole that I could walk to, since the RTP area is no known for it's pedestrian avenues. However, I was rather disappointed. No issues with the drinks - beer was cold - not much more you can ask for. My issue was with the food. On my first visit, I tried the quesadilla, which was soggy and lacked flavor. The wings weren't that much better. I gave it a second visit hoping for better, but the sub (they call it a "grinder") was once again lacking flavor - extremely bland. Like I said, I was hoping I had found a local gem that would make me stop driving to the Brier Creek, SouthPoint or Crabtree areas for food, but unfortunately that is just not the case. Good for a cold beer, but not sure if anything else on the menu is worthwhile - maybe their pizzas are decent - just don't know.

what more could you want ? The staff were very friendly and changed the channel on the TV to find just the game that our group wanted to watch ( UK soccer)

Good selection on the menu - standard burgers etc but also salads

Beer was on special that night $2.5 !!!

Great sports atmosphere. Food was good. Drinks were great and not watered down. There are a couple of hotels within walking distance. There is an outdoor seating area- was too cold for us to experience. There are also numerous tv's with sporting events.
