“Great place to meet up with friends”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Usually go for drinks, but great food as well . Staff is pleasant, owners are present, which makes a difference. Smoking in one bar, no smoking in the other bar and restaurant area. It's nice to have a choice. Back room with darts and pool, and a large garage door that opens up, making it very nice to feel the outdoor breeze. Always a great time! Lots of tvs for sports fans.

“Excellent service for a very large group”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I went with a group of about 16 people and the server was pleasant, attentive, and delivered our food accurately. (He's a Disney fan, to boot!) BIG portions -- you won't go home hungry. Fried calamari appetizer was decent. My husband got an ajilo and I had a basic burger. My hamburger was delicious -- way better than Five Guys. The fries were okay. Some of our friends got the hot dogs which are enormous and the Fat Boy Burger which is essentially a cardiac event waiting to happen. We were out by the pool table and dart boards. A little quieter out there and so it was easier to carry a conversation, but there were smokers. The main room was considerably louder due to the karaoke.

“Go For The Fries”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Started with nachos as an appetizer, and they were awesome. Wife's salad was okay. I got the 1/2 pound hot dog, and should have known better. That's too big for a hot dog, and almost impossible to eat. The saving grace were the french fries. Some of the best I've ever eaten. This place is worth another try in my book.

“Food is OK, but getting it out of the kitchen was s-l-o-w”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Small town sport bar that took over a Uno's Pizza. I miss the Uno's. Food was OK and portions were well suited to the price. No walls for smoking and non-smoking. Service was hometown friendly, but the kitchen was very slow on a night when the dining area was not busy at all. Menu has a good variety, but there are better places in town.

“3 1/2 stars”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I had the wings with the recommended sauce and the loaded nachos. Nothing particularly unique but certainly tasty. I could go back. Service was pleasant.
