This place is huge! TVs everywhere and everything going even though not much on while I was there. Service great, selections pretty good. Figure Sports Bar and Hamburger place. And the burger was just as good as advertised. I lucked out and hit happy hour on a Friday. Had a local beer(2). You will like this place!

I was not able to visit this place on game day but I would assume it would be nothing less than a fantastic experience! Beautiful huge bar. Great burgers. Cold beer and sports memorabilia everywhere!

Great cheese curds, one of the best burgers I've ever had, a couple of actually decent micro brews on tap, and friendly, fast, delightful service. Would... More
