“I hope you have time to wait”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Food was bar food at best"meaning not memorable". Lots of TV's to watch a game and lots of beer to choose from. Way understaffed, the sign of a struggling bar is when you see the bartender ordering kitchen chemicals on the phone, also taking food orders in the dining area and then serving beers to the bar. Maybe he was also cooking? That would explain the 20 min wait for 2 sandwiches and fries.

“This place should be leveled”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

No $24.95 rib eye steaks avaialble at 7 PM Saturday night - really? (Or maybe that was their story since we showed them a buy one entree get one free coupon - perhaps they didn't want to honor a free $24.95 entree?)

Fried pickles slid right out of their breading - Burger was undercooked on one side, char blackened on other side (no onion, tomato etc. offered), fish was greasy & portions small (they called it tilapia, but not so sure ???) fries (chips) were obviously cooked in recycled oil that had that funky taste and the portions were undersized for $14.95 price tag. Won't even go into commenting on the cabbage slaw or whatever it was supposed to be.

Worst food I've ever tasted by far - HUGE disappointment. Manager couldn't even come over to table to apologize.

They will NEVER make it - YUK and PATHETIC.

“Go for the beer....”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

They have a huge selection of beer! Domestic, imported, craft...etc. The food in my opinion just tastes average... Nothing I would be excited to go have again. Service was slow on a Friday night but the place was only about 35% occupied. Lots of TV's. Many more men were here than women. Probably because of the beer.

“Won't be back”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

I've been here three times and each experience is worst than the last. Very slow and uninspired service. I ordered chili and a burger. Chili came out 20 minutes later, cold. It was replaced by not hot but warm chili, I just gave up. The burger was brought to the table. I wish I had taken a picture. On the plate, next to my very overcooked burger, were soggy crinkle cut French fries. Limp and lifeless, bought at Lowes Foods, fries. I paid and left without eating. The manager followed me out and asked if there was a problem. I appreciated the effort and I explained my issue. The manager admitted the fries were bought and the supermarket and stated that the chef had quit to work elsewhere. You don't need a chef to cook a burger and fries.

“Like the bar - skip the restaurant”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Been here twice to eat and have been disappointed both times. It's nothing terrible - just the menu lacks choices and then the food is a little 'blah'. The exception is the bacon Brussels sprouts which are such an unusual side - and so tasty!!

The bar has a good beer menu, friendly & knowledgeable staff and is a much better experience.

Loads of TVs if you want to see the game - but I do find the arcade type games a little out of place & distracting - esp. in the restaurant.
