Average food in a loud atmosphere. Took my team from work to eat here for lunch. Service was quick, but it is very difficult to carry a conversation with people.

Went here for lunch with co-workers. Ordered Taco pizza. Was quick and tasted very good. Only problem was the temperature of restaurant. Freezing cold. Uncomfortable cold.

Great sports bar. 2 projector screens with well over a dozen HD flat screens.they will work with you to get you a TV near you to the game you want. Great service. Pizza is unique with large ingredients and thick cheese. Thick breaded onion rings are great.

Grinders are big but difficult to finish. Sides were on the wrong plates. Solution...gave us extra plates for us to fix ourselves. Refilled my ice tea but not my wife's. Didn't add more ice so it was warm. Return unlikely

Came here for dinner during a recent business trip. I started with a cup of very satisfying chili, then had the 9" taco pizza, which had taco toppings (meat and chips) loaded on top of the pie itself. I really enjoyed it, but could not finish because of all of the toppings. Service was good and the prices were reasonable.

Good sports pub food. Especially like that there is plenty of attention paid to UNI and not exclusively those other state schools. We had a good meat pizza and yummy onion rings.

This place had good atmosphere and good service. Onion rings were very good. My turkey croissant was soggy, but I had so much other food I didn't complain.
