I did not want to even give it one star but the site requires you check the box to continue. This was the third time in 3 years that I have ordered food. A terrible disappointment each time. Took a friend there last month who was visiting from out of state. It was Thursday night and I thought it would... More

So we went in here on a whim. Very close to where we live. I must say the beer was nice and cold. Tasted fresh like the lines were cleaned. They have a decent selection of craft beers, which is what we like. So far so good until we order our second beer, they use the same glass. Sorry but... More

This place is beyond awful, burnt food, and No service we waited and waited forever to be seated and waited on and not once were asked if we would like refills. I could not understand the way we were ignored almost the entire visit. Take your hard earned money somewhere that deserves it because this place is a poor excuse

Service was not good either which seemed to be due to poor management looked like it was very unorganized read other negative reviews but decided to try anyway how bad could it be but it was very bad parking lot full but did not seem that busy for a Friday took...

The menu is pretty standard pub type food, but nothing stand out. We were there on a Friday night and it wasn't too busy. That said, the service wasn't exactly the most attentive. If all you want to do is have a beer and watch a game, it probably isn't a bad place. If you are looking for a good... More

I was there with a group of 8 at 6:30 on a Saturday night. It was starting to get crowded but there was only one waitress and I could tell she was doing her best to keep up with many demands -- so needless to say, service was a bit slow!!! The menu offers a nice variety and was pretty... More

The music was perfect , she played everything we wanted and the bar tender was very friendly. We were here years ago I... More

Bartender was great. The food was horrible. Got the steak kabob and it was maybe 3 oz of beef and a dozen French fries and it was $18. Horrible meal and left hungry. Bartender was sympathetic but unable to help. Not going back- our business wasn't important to them.

I have eaten here several times and since its close to home i keep hoping it will get better. No such luck! The food is ok if you get it. We never got our appitiezer then waited 20 mins for drink refills. We ended up canceling the drinks and left. Nice place towatch sports but dont go hungry or thirsty.

Went in on a Friday night. Was not sure what to expect because of the mixed reviews. Well I must say the food was amazing to say the least and the karaoke was lots of fun. Our server Jose was very attentive and knowledgeable. If you want great food and drinks or just want to have a good time we... More
