Lots of beers. Lots of tv screens. A good place to watch games. A bit pricey for food that is not special. But service is pleasant and peppy. For basics, wings and beer, not a bad choice.

Definitely not a healthy place. Good solid pub food. Burgers are a bit bland. The basic wing flavors are good (mild, hot, and whatever the hottest is). BBQ and some of the others are a bit too sweet and flavor just isn't great. Beer menu...More
