Really great menu with lots of free popcorn before. The place is just a comfortable place to dine. Not fancy,but not high priced.Usually a little wait on week ends so make a reservation.

Had dinner there during visit with my daughter. Definite sports bar with tasty food. Brought a toddler and it was loud and casual so no problem.
