“Had the Best Time!!9/13/13”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Went on Friday night with a party of 11 and our server Kaytlyn? was excellent with keeping up with every one of us to giving advise on what to eat. All her recommendations were spot on. Chicken Zingers were super good and the salmon was surprisingly delicious. Happy Hour was a great value!! They had a band that was pretty good.

“Good atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Visiting family in town when we stopped in for a beer, some snacks and live music. The staff were all friendly and the band was great! We were at an outdoor table on a comfortable evening which enhanced the experience. our food was decent. I had grilled fish tacos which were good but had a little too much cole slaw in them. One of our family members had a veggie pizza that was loaded. Also good. The place seemed to draw in a good crowd after 10 pm too so it's a nice place to go if you're looking for some nightlife.

“Good sports bar fare and good value near USC”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Went here on the first day of classes at USC. It's a good looking sports bar with a decent number of TVs and not too expensive. I had a 16 oz beer and a chicken sandwich for $12. Pretty decent BBQ chicken sandwich and really good fries. Could work for families or couples or friends watching a game. Probably 30-40 beers on tap, and 50 more or so in bottles. It's not going to knock your socks off with fantastic food but it's good enough and there's plenty of beer selections for not a big hit to the wallet. No problem with the service at all - attentive but not overbearing.

“Great place to watch a game”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in with my family for dinner. Great fun atmosphere with TVs everywhere. Had the app combo which was excellent. The burgers and salads were very good. Lastly the beer selection is excellent. Many selection from some of the countries top microbrews.

I saw a few comments about bad service but our server was excellent.

Highly recommend!

“Nice atmosphere but terrible service”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I sat at the bar for a bite to eat expecting fast service, but I had to ask every time I wanted something. The place was not that busy so I can only think the bartenders don't understand customer service. There was three bartenders for about 12 people total at the bar. With so many options in the area I will be giving my money to an establishment who appreciates their customers.
