Visited this sports bar for lunch and loved the warm cozy feel of the place with great lobster roll (real chunks of lobster salad!) and outstanding pad Thai. Good service and plenty of tv's for watching sports events.

Yes, it's a sports bar and grill in a shopping center, however, we have visited and eaten dinner there numerous times and this is consistently good, tasty and fresh food. It is an unusual combination for sure. There's a big u shaped sports bar with...More
