The atmosphere and service are good. The food is your average bar scene menu with a few added twists. Food is ok nothing to make your mouth water but all in all not a bad place for a couple of drinks while you watch the games. A lot of TV's everywhere.

We went Monday afternoon expecting it to be a quiet quick lunch but there were a lot of people.. The menu is huge, lot of options for everyone. WE had the lobster and shrimp ravioli and southwest chilli chicken. Both were good. The service was very good, friendly and attentive. Thank you.

The main event is a bar pub with cafe style food. It's got an average menu, an average setting and average pricing. Typical menu and drink service.

I seem to always get the slam burger. It has the most toppings. Usually comes out cooked the way I ordered it. Lots of fries on the side. Wait staff friendly and attentive. Many ice cold beers.

The selection of food in this restaurant is magnificent. There is something for everyone whether you want a big meal or a snack. The meats and fish dishes are of excellent quality. Specials are available daily. The atmosphere is very pleasant but can sometimes be very noisy because of all the TV's surrounding you. This restaurant has an incredibly extensive... More

This is a sports bar cum restaurant with televisions lined up side by side showing all the sports channel available. With the more than a dozen TVs, shows are repeated on other parts of the wall. Been here twice and both times I left full. Standard fare for this sort of place like chicken fingers, pasta and buffalo wings. Food... More

Went here with a bunch of friends on a Friday night, I have never seen a menu as odd as this one. Very expensive for the type of place it is, the only thing half decent was the burger. We will not be going back

We visited this restaurant with another family on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy, but we were seated quickly. Our group of nine was greeted quickly by our waitress. She checked back with us several times as we decided what to order. She quickly brought our drinks and offered refills several times as we enjoyed our dinner. The food... More
