Came here to watch the first game of the season for the first time and was really pleasantly surprised, nice and spacious with plenty of seats despite it being busy with people wanting to watch the game. Nice waiting staff and good priced drinks.

Stopped in for the NBA championship. Plenty of TVs , reasonable prices on food and drinks. Prime rib was huge and very good. Can't beat it for 15.99.
