Description: There’s never been a place quite like Arooga’s before. How do we know? Spies. That, and because we’re not just some average, run-of-the-mill, sports bar. Nope. We’re a slightly above average grille house and sports bar. That’s right. Our housemade food is prepared by chefs instead of factory workers — it’s better. The housemade bread, wings sauces, salad dressings, the housemade soups. All better. The beer is colder. The TVs, TV-er. You can see every game from every seat. And we mean every game, because we have every sports package available all 365 days of the year on 100's of flat screen tv's between all of our locations. We've got free wi-fi, Golden Tee, Buzztime trivia, and NTN Texas Hold 'em. We've got over 80 menu items under $8.99. And several other items priced over $8.99 for the rich folks. So if you're looking for great food prepared and served by above-average people that prepare and serve great food, you'll find it at Arooga's. If you're looking for fun, you'll find that, too. If you're looking for your boyfriend and/or girlfriend, we haven't seen him and/or her. So there you go, the proof's in the pudding here at Arooga's.

Our third and last visit here. We've tried to give them the benefit of the doubt, but just a poorly run establishment. Very mediocre food. Average service. Not particularly clean.

This draft house is amazing!!! For a good price you can get seven tastes from a HUGE selection of beers. try some that you have never tried before. There are description that go with each plus you can always ask the bartenders or wait staff. Food was good and the service was great!

Food and service has gone down hill. Unless you have endless time to wait for your cold average food I would not recommend eating here. If you do, don't bother with an appetizer as this place does not understand the concept that it is supposed to be served prior to your main course and that a customer might actually want it served hot. But if you like cold food, no service, and enjoy throwing away money then arooga's is the place for you.

How difficult is it to make a deli sandwich that has more than 1 slice of meat? Sliders were 8 dollars for literally three one bite size minis and lousy quality meat. The menu is big, maybe these were the wrong choices. We both agreed we would have been much more satisified going to Subway who's food is at least fresh and ample.

What is nice about this Sports bar is that there is an area for larger groups to eat and not have to wait for ever. The group we were with at everything from salads to crab cakes and sandwiches and sliders in between. the wait staff is very attentive.
