Food was average but the service was horrible. To start, they offer 3 different Cabernets on the menu. The first one we ordered, the waitress came back and said they were out of it. So we ordered a different one. Only to have her come...More

This was an excellent experience because we had an excellent waitress! Becky N. was outstanding. The amber was delicious as were the jalapeno poppers. Burgers and fries were good.

Sarah, our server, was outstanding! Fun and friendly. Exactly what you'd want at a sports bar. TVs are plentiful and there's not a bad seat in the house. Background music was a little goofy- the Star Wars theme disco song was heard! :D Burgers and...More

I heard that service was slow in some other reviews. I went for lunch and while not super fast service was fine. Nice menu with options for all. I tried the pot pie which was just ok, a little dry and needed some salt but...More
