Great family-friendly, sports bar atmosphere! However, gluten-free options for food and drink are limited. Enjoy!

Was looking for a place to watch a game after a long day working remotely in Grand Island. Have not been downtown, and enjoyed the old time atmosphere outside and the look of the Chicken Coop inside. Gigantic booth just for me, my book, my meal, and a game. Met quickly by server and got order in fast. Menu was... More

Great place to eat out especially on a Wednesday night with their $6 burger special. Crazy good home made root beer and cream soda like I've never had before- waring sugar rush city lol. Parking is easy across the street.

A group of 16 were waited on, served and out of there in one hour! The orders were diversified! Pizza, steak sandwiches, quesadillas, sausage and sauerkraut, smothered chicken, salads, etc.

We sat at the bar for a while waiting for a table. They were very busy. We don't mind waiting so had a few drinks at the bar. When we spotted some people getting up to leave to walked over and sat down at the table. It hadn't been cleared off yet and that was fine with us since they... More
