I found the food and service to be very good. The French Onion Soup is exactly the way it's supposed to be. The wings were as they are supposed to be. Big, juicy and tasty.

My wife and I along with a friend went here to have the advertised Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner. One of the few times, as of late, that the whole dinner "experience" was just great. Food was excellent (for a pre-cooked dinner), service could not have been better and the establishment was as neat and clean as a sports bar... More

Always enjoy going to Champs. I love their cheese fries with bacon, although they do have other combinations as well. They have good chicken wings but they tend to be on the small side. The menu is quite eclectic and even with such a diverse menu they seem to do a good job of cooking all the various items. One... More

Nobody to seat you until we got somebodies attention in the back of the restaurant. The young girl who seated us had the personality of powty 12 year old. We ordered the onion blossoms as an appetizer and it was very good. We both ordered salads and my wife's buffalo chicken salad was good, but my taco salad was another... More

Champs is a typical sports bar with plenty of TVs to catch all the games and most of the typical domestic beers on tap with about two or three craft beer selections. So a decent place to watch sports and grab a drink but the food isn’t very good. I tried the medium wings which were a little rubbery and... More

Went there over the weekend with friends. This was my first time to Champs. The place has plenty of Tvs for veiwing various sports. The wings were highly talked about by one of our friends. Was in the mood for good wings, but ended up disappointed. The wings were chewy and over-cooked. The wing sauce was good.

If your goals are drinking beer and watching television, then Champs will delight you. From there - it goes down hill. The goal for everything, be it the food or the table service seems to be. "that's good enough". And I'm sure for many people, that's an acceptable attitude. But stepping up the quality, appearance and taste of the food,... More

This was a nice bar, bigger than it looks from the outside. Drinks were good. Waitress was friendly. We would go back.

I don't even know how long this restaurant has been operating, but it is a looming time. They also survived a physical move and update that often kills a business like this. It didn't. They are still spot on. My wife and I ate here two weeks ago. We had wings. They were great! Lot's of regulars.
