It's a bar/restaurant with a garage theme and a clever name. I'll pay high prices for mediocre food, terrible service, and high prices because it's such a cool concept....NOT!!

What a disappointment! 20+ flavors of wing sauce...that all taste like cheap processed condiments. Dry, small wings that still have more flavor than the sauces poured over them. Boring burgers and fries that could have come from any roadside diner.

Uninspired and industrial, that's all I can say. No need to pay high prices for, at best, average food, and below average service. Go someplace where somebody actually gives a hoot about what they are serving you. This place is just somebody's gimmick, being manned by a bunch of kids who couldn't care less. Enough said.

Service was terrible, I would have told them the food was bad but they never checked back! The place was filthy, in need of some updating. A bunch of the employees were hanging out chatting at the bar instead of taking care of patrons who were waiting, and it looked like the managers were in the same group. Not worth my hard earned $$$.

Service was good. Most of the food was terrible. Wings were dried out. Soup was tastless and salad was not fresh.

We were in Erie visiting colleges and found a flier for this restaurant. We are wing nuts so we decided to give it a try. This is such a cool place. Like a sports bar for families. Cars hanging from the ceiling, great music, and awesome wings.......third only to th Ancor Bar in Buffalo, NY and Lewisburg Hotel in Lewisburg PA. The sevice was really quick. We got a bucket with two types of wings and both were excellent. Crispy and hot!!

Great ambience - but food has gone downhill - needs a perk up! I feel badly that it lost its quality appeal - food wise - since it first opened.
