“What Happened to the Menu?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

When this place first opened, they had a great menu with delicious items like truffle fries and lobster mac'n'cheese .... now both are gone and in their place is just another sports bar and grill. Nothing really jumps off the menu anymore as unusual. While the food is good, it's pretty much the same as any other grill like Ale House or Tribecas. This is disappointing, because it used to be a destination place to eat with really great food, and now I'll just go there for the outside atmosphere only.

“Good, local sports bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is a good, local sports bar. Lots of well placed television screens, great selection of local, state and imported beer and good food. The menu is just what you expect in a venue like this and the service is fast and friendly. We have eaten there several times over the past year and it is consistent ... which is always a big bonus for us when we take friends and visitors. It's fun to eat outside on the patio in warm weather.

“Good food, too noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

I had the Spanish Burger special with sausage (it was a Spanish theme night) and my wife had the pulled pork. The pulled pork had the smokiest flavor she had ever tasted and she would have preferred less smoke and more barbecue, but she still liked it. Mine had a tasty sauce on it and was well prepared. I like the way they get their french fries the crisp up and they're seasoned well. The diet pepsi was a bit watered down, but OK. The place was WAY TOO NOISY. That really detracted from the visit. The service was very good. If I go back to the place, I'll first poke my head in to test the noise level or try to sit outside (which we wanted to do anyway, but no seats were available).

“Nice bar, food, and service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

My wife and I sat at the bar for our meal one Saturday evening. Our bartender recommended the breaded chicken sandwich special, which my wife ordered. It was excellent! I ordered the pickle chips and wings............both great. Now, for dessert, we had the Tres Leches cake. It was simply delicious!! My wife said it was the best dessert she has had in a long time. The service was excellent, and we never had to ask for anything.

“Great food, reasonable price, sit outside!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

Been to this establishment several times now, always hard to choose what to have because of so many yummy choices on the menu! Sitting outside on the patio (some tables covered, others full sun) is a treat on a nice day. Usually something happening on the weekends on the lawn area nearby (art shows, adopt a pet, etc.) There is a kids menu. Try the potato skins - skins served with a cheese, bacon and scallion dipping sauce, interesting take! House salad is great, herb ranch dressing homemade, wraps and sandwiches are delightful. Good size portions.
