Great venue and bank but management does not know how to communicate when it comes to fees. First of all all of your guests have to pay a cover charge to come to the party and I had already paid $200 for a party room so I had to pay the cover for all of my guests up front with a guestimate of how many people would be there. I paid for 60 and there were only 30. They did the same thing for the food. I thought that they were going to take a count but they based it on 60 and there were only 30. My daughter and I have called several times to talk with them about paying the amount for the actual number of people but they will not return our phone calls. We are going to contest the overage with our credit card companies now.

Honestly, Almost ever time I go here just to play pool and get a couple of drinks. Tried the food once and was amazed at how good it was. I had heard from many people that the food wasn't as good as they had expected. In turn The restaurant has become more of a bar then a eatery.

Went prior to the bar rush early evening. As a bar it's a booming place with live music and obviously freezer flowing alcoholic beverages. You'd have to be intoxicated to tolerate the poor food and less than service driven staff. Also overpriced given the lack of quality food and cooking temperatures.
3 of 4 meals had to be sent back for various reasons with not even a "sorry" or "thanks". Guess you better go when everyone is drunk and cares less for the food. Not impressive and I'll take my teams, clients and family elsewhere. Ouch!

I planned a Birthday Party of 20 people for Sat the 4th of Aug. We got there before the cover charge of $10 was to be charged which was supposed to be at 9pm. We got there @ 8 to eat and set up for Party. They charged all 20 of us at 8pm. Band was to come on @ 930 they came on at 1055. Very disappointed with mgmt and the whole event. We did have a great waitress and she caught the heat from customers around us

This is a sports bar, not a restaurant. The food is average, but the atomosphere is very energetic. There are cars on display inside the bar -- really cool looking cars. If you're looking for a sports bar, this is a great one. If you're looking for a restaurant, this may not be the place for you.
